Hair Growth: MegaTek

As a curly-haired diva, you have a hard time being able to tell how much your hair has grown unless you wet it, straighten it, or pull a curl straight. Waiting for curly hair to grow seems like it takes a lifetime (if not longer). I have curly hair–well, it’s some curls and some waves–and when my hair is dry it looks like it is neck lenght. If I wet it, it goes past my shoulders. If I straighten it, it looks longer than that.

When I was a little girl, my hair was down to my waist. Fast forward-to the teen years and the introduction of chemicals: there goes my hair! From waist to nothing in 30 minutes flat. Now, years later my hair still doesn’t go any longer than a little past shoulder. Well, at least it used to. I’ve been trying an experiment to see if I can get my hair to at least go to my midback. In comes something called MegaTek.

Originally for horses, MegaTek is a rebuilder that some horse owners found out grows their own hair. Don’t ask me why horse owners were using stuff made for their horses, but I’m glad they did! I ordered some for myself after seeing remarkable results from a message board I belong to. Some of the ladies were growing their hair about an inch a month. So being the curious one that I am, I decided to see if I can regrow these stubborn bald patches in the front of my hairline. Lo and behold, I see some hair sprouting! A little too soon to tell about the overall growth, but my hair is thicker, stronger and much more managable. I’ll be taking comparison pictures in the first week of September.
