Profectiv Mega Growth Anti-Breakage Strengthener
Most ingredients on jar are not what I received !
Sally's website states that the ingredients you will find in this product are listed in this order : Soybean Oil Glycine Soja, Water Aqua, Horsetail Extract Equisetum Hiemale, Sage Extract Salvia Officinalis, Nettle Extract, etc etc. I have used a mega growth product that is currently on the market that contain the ingredients in that exact order - but the particular mega growth creme that I received from Sallys has different ingredients. The ingredients I received for this mega growth creme are listed in this order: Aqua, glycine soja oil/soybean oil, propylene glycol, hydrogenated vegetable oil, steareth-2, steareth-20, polyquatermium-37, propylene glycol dicaprylate/ dicaprate Olea europaea fruit oil/olive oil, butyrospermum parkii fruit/ shea butter, persea gratissima oil/ avacado oil, etc etc etc. I ordered 5 jars because (a# I thought this product would contain the same ingredients I used in the past for this mega creme #b# it was a great price for an 8 oz jar - #c) I could not find this creme - with the ingredients listed above - where I live in florida. I was disappointed but decided to keep the jars because of the price. The creme works fine but not as well as the ingredients listed on the website. I will search the internet and will hopefully find the mega growth creme that I used in the past.

I am 18 and since I was little I've had very frizzy and thick curly hair. Since my freshman year of highschool I have straightened it every single day! I know that's so bad for my hair. haha.
I was looking for ways to protect my hair against all the things I put it through. I was also looking for ways to moisturize and condition it.
So with my $50 gift card my parents gave me for Sally's I went and brought various keratin reconstructors, placenta hot oil, and this stuff.
I ABOSOLUTELY LOVE this stuff. I took a shower and washed my hair with Ion Scalp Clarifyer, then I conditioned my hair with Silk Elements Luxury Moisture, and when I got out I put this stuff in. My curls dried nice and soft and shiny! They weren't tangled or frizzy at all. AND THIS STUFF SMELLS LIKE BANANA LAFFY TAFFY! YUM! I went to sleep on my hair and woke up and my hair was STILL soft and not frizzy.
I love the profectiv care line, and I'd also recommend the Profectiv mega growth conditioner that you put in your hair for 5mins thne wash out, I get it at Walgreens. :]

I have to start this off by saying that I have never taken the time to write a review before..... but I had to for this. I have been using this for a week now and I am in love, It does smell like banana laffy taffy. hahahah soo yummy. But I have to say that I would use this even if it didnt smell as good , cause it works that good. I am of italian decent and my hair is long and can be a bit rough on the ends , and it was starting to break, I was at my wits end when i saw a review on youtube on profectiv, and i thougt well heck for 5 bucks i will give it a try, I am so happy I did. I use a nickle size amount in my towel dried hair and concentrate on the ends. This is a god send and I will be back for more !!!

Banana creme? No. Banana pancakes? Nah. Banana Laffy Taffy! This smells like the banana Laffy Taffy candy. Delicious. This is a very thick and creamy product. This was also my first Profectiv purchase. I bought it because I have tried so many products to stop my breakage. I hesistated to buy it because very few helped me in the past. Does it work? Yes,for me it did.
After washing and conditioning, I gave myself an acv/nettle rinse (like I ususally do) then while still damp, I ran about a half dollar amount over my hair. It left my hair white but I have super dry curls and knew that it wouldn't dry white. I then covered my hair with a stocking cap (protective styling) and let it dry. Let me tell you, I've been using this for almost a month, every day, sometimes twice a day and I can now pick my twa without seeing little c's and broken strands all over my bathroom sink.
I like that this is thick. My hair likes thick. I wouldn't suggest this for thin strands. But if you like bananas, thick cremes, and have a problem with breakage, you've got to try this. Sally's does refunds so you have nothing to lose and inches of hair to retain.
My only problem with this is that the good ingredients are towards the bottom of the ingredients list. This contains horsetail, flax, grapeseed, coconut, jojoba,, and olivefruit but they're towards the bottom of the list. However, this product works for me so I can overlook that. If it ain't broke don't fix it! I hope they don't mess with these ingredients... I will buy this again though because it's that good. I'm adding their condioner to my wishlist.
