PROFECTIV MEGA GROWTH Daily Leave-In Strengthener

I have to admit, I've had this product sitting in my room since the Brit Beauty event >here< last Summer because I was a bit very sceptical about it.
Firstly the dodgy looking bright pink colour just screams "questionable chemical content". Secondly, I have a preference for more natural products. And finally, the women on the tub have straightened & wavey hair. Nothing like my natural texture.
OVERVIEW
This product, smoothed on easily and helped get rid of tangles as it has pretty good slip.
I hadn't paid much attention to the "Break Free" claims on the tub, but after 2 weeks of using Mega Growth, I noticed much less hair loss than usual. I was surprisingly impressed with this product. Especially it's ability to live-up to its claim of reducing breakage.


My Experience
I ended up using it out of desperation.
I was all but out of my staples and I had no other product I could afford to use so liberally on my hair, which was desperate for moisture while it waited to be washed.
I ended up coating my hair in Mega Growth several times in two weeks. Not only was it a great way to rehydrate my hair, but I was mostly wearing top knots and buns, and Mega Growth made it really easy to slick my hair into one.
It doesn't have great hold, but it's not a styler so I wasn't expecting it to. However, it did make my hair really easy to work with, and neat, which allowed me to style my hair and be ready quickly.
A Lot Less Breakage!
When I finally got round to washing my hair, it felt surprisingly soft after the first rinse (before shampooing), almost like I had already deep conditioned. Also, considering how poorly I'd been treating my hair for the previous two weeks, I was expecting twice the usual amount of breakage and shedding. I was completely amazed that after washing and styling, I'd lost a lot less hair than usual.
It's been a while since I noticed such a significant reduction in the amount of hair loss on washday.
CONCLUSIONS
I'll definitely be returning to this product, as it's very cheap and the results were surprisingly impressive. It only has one silicone that I could see, and it's a shame about the number of parabens, but if I'm honest, I'm so pleased with the overall results that I'm very likely to buy this product in the future.
