    Do you remember Surge 14 Hair Revitalizer from back in the day that was a RAVE on all the hair forums? Well guess what ya'll? It's back!!!!!!

    I found out about it from a FB natural hair group and was able to purchase it at a nearby BSS. It's from the original creator of Surge 14 but it's now under a new name. It has the same exact ingredients as the original Surge.

    Lord, help me; I am tearing up over a blasted hair product. It was the only glycerin-containing product my natural hair ever liked and I never needed a DC or protein treatment while using it. I cut mine with oil to soften it.

    Yes I searched the forum to see if anyone had any reviews and saw that you were the only one that posted about the new formula.

    I am wearing some old crochet braids that I plan to remove on Friday and install a new set on Saturday. I will start using the product then along with WGHO. I hope this formula does what it did for me back in the day. I had a great experience with it.

    Here is the website for those who are interested to see where the product is being sold near to you...

    What's old, is new again. Surged pushed out a whole bunch of mini-waves from my scalp. It definitely grew my hair. I never could find another product with muccopolysaccharides in it. I looked hard, too. I believe aloe vera has some mucopolysaccharides in it. But, there was no other product out there with mucopolysaccharides added as an ingredient, appearing on the label, with this quantity.

    I smiled when I thought of it because it made me think of the old members here. I was new to the board when this product was popular, I think. This post made me smile. Thanks for the link, too.

    @SexySin985,
    These are great photos, OP. Did you take them with your iPhone?

    I also remember the pictures documenting the burns some got from it. The key ingredient was the mucopolysaccharides (or glycosaminoglycans):

    Glycosaminoglycans have shown promising ability to stimulate hair growth in clinical tests. They lengthen the anagen or growing stage of a hair’s strand’s life cycle, thereby giving hair an extended period of time to grow longer. Another benefit of this substance is that it has the potential to reduce hair loss, so if excessive shedding is a concern, you might want to look for conditioners that have this all important ingredient in the mix.

    Yes, I remember getting a solid inch in one month which was great because my hair grows extremely slowly... Unfortunately, I got on the bandwagon by the time it was too late and they discontinued the product. It was nowhere to be found after that.....

    $7.99 plus tax.....

    It does not have much of a strong smell. Its a clear liquid it has a very faint smell that goes away almost immediately. It doesn't smell bad or anything nor does it smell chemically. To me it smells like overly diluted foam wrap. Like 1 part foam wrap and 3 parts water... if that makes sense

    Yes I took these pics with an iPhone:drunk:

    Okay @SexySin985 , I'm gonna need you to keep us updated after you've used this for a few months. I'm on a no buy ban right now but will break it for something special and this could be the one.

    How did two dinosaurs get in my post? Sigh... Let me get my walker and head to bed before it's sundown. When the streets lights come on, I might as well forget about trying to get to sleep!

    I LOVED Surge 14 back in the day!! I was getting an inch a month using it mixed with castor oil & my hair was noticeably thicker too.

    @RUBY,
    Thank you for the compliments. I appreciate them.

    My ponytail is barely 2/3 the length it was at its longest, in 2011. I tried to self trim and trimmed all the up to bra-strap in 2012. Then in 2014, I let a stranger do my hair and she set me back again. Things are looking up, now. My hair is finally below my waist again.

    I was one of the people who got burned on my scalp by surge. I would have loved to try the "new" stuff, but if it's truly the same thing under a different name, that's kinda dumb. They got ALL KINDS of issues with the burns.

    Let us know how it works out for you though.

    I remember the original product... my edges can use all the help they can get so I will probably pick this up. Thanks for sharing.

    How nostalgic !!!!! I remember the Surge craze back in the day on the forum, a good 12 years ago! GOODNESS! I don't remember my results. I just remember it being watery and it didn't have a bad smell.

    It's nice to see my fellow old heads all in one thread. Hi ladies!

    On topic, I may try out the new formula (after researching the burn issue). I never got on that bandwagon back in the day.

    Interesting that this is back. I wonder if it's just as effective as the first formula, hmm.

    I was thinking about this product the other day. I didn't have any reaction to it and I thought it was a decent product. I can't remember if my hair grew with it though.

    My guesstimate is 25% of the posters in the original challenges experienced burns. I don't think anyone had a theory as to why this was happening.
