Default 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.

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

I don't mix my sulfur mix into the Megatek mix for application.

My sulfur mix contains grapeseed oil, JBCO, argan oil and sublimed sulfur.

I use the Megatek with the blue writing:

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.

@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.

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