    Megatek and homemade sulfur mix

    How are you ladies using them? Do you mix them together or use them on alternate days?

    Mixing them tigether + everyday use = thick, thick, thick roots. That's been my experience after trying this combo for 2 months. Prior to trying this combo, I was just doing the sulfur mix, by itself, 2x daily.

    Re: Megatek and homemade sulfur mix

    Thank you. That's good news. What is your ratio? Are you also mixing in the powder or just the oil part of the sulfur?

    I have everything in a bottle and use once a week when I'm doing a pre-poo.

    I have both as separate mix. However, I use both at the same time.

    What's in the sulfur mix?

    Or do you mix sulfur powder in w/ Mega?

    Which Mega do you use?

    Sorry for all the ???...

    I had a sulphur mix of a teaspoon in applicator mixed with garlic and hempseed oil. Then I had a bottle of diluted megatek (diluted with rosewater) I just mixed a bit of the sulphur -about a 1/4 bottle with the megatek I use this one[​IMG]

    That MegaTek ain't no joke ($$)!

    Does it smell odd (esp. the sulfur)??

    Anywayz,
    I think I will try this when the Hubz goes TDY next month
    for 2 months. Then he should be able to tell me if there's
    a difference, and won't have to deal with the sulfur smell
    (he can be such a GIRL about smells!).

    Thanx for all the info Ladies!!!

    I personally like the smell. Its a light pleasant (IMHO) scent.

    Regarding the sulfur oil, yes, it still has a strong scent. However, I also add organic perfume oil to my mix - so I like the smell of MY homemade mix.

    ETA: I don't find the Megatek to be overly expensive because even when I use it on the length of my hair, one bottle lasts about 10 months to a year. I use a sufficient amount on my hair (about 3-4 silver dollar sized handfuls). When I made my mix, I used 2-4 ozs. I have had my mix for a while too with no problems.

    AKA-Tude, Megatek smells like coconut. What is in your sulfur mix that makes it smell funny?

    NYDee-

    I don't have a sulfur mix as of yet,
    but I always thought sulfur had a strong smell,
    no matter what you mixed it with.:look:

    AKA-Tude, sulfur powder doesn't have a smell, the oil you mix it determines how it smells.

    I've been using just the Mega-Tek itself but I have some Sulfur 8 hairdress, do you think that combination will be equivalent to the powder

    @AKA-Tude My dh is the same way. he complains all of the time. I actually just made a sulfur batch that didn't stink and I have way too much sulfur in it w/mn mustard oil, castor oil, msm . So I blame the stinky smell on some of my essential oils.

    I wouldn't grab sulfur powder from the gardening section. However, from a pharmacy or online is a good way to go.
