I received this product for free from Sally Beauty Supply when I renewed my Sally's card for $5.00 back in March. My staple moisturizing/mild protein deep conditioner is ORS Replenishing Conditioner, but I ran out of it and decided to try something new.
I was very hesitant to try something new because I have a strict motto for my hair..."if it's not broke, don't fix it". Plus, I really don't want to suffer from any setbacks.
So, before using this, I read many reviews and I also did a patch test to assure I wasn't allergic to this product.
On to the review.
What they say:
- Contains silk protein and olive oil for extra strength and nourishment
- Helps create dramatically softer, healthier-looking hair
- Helps mend split ends
Silk Elements MegaSilk Intense Conditioning Mayonnaise is a rich, creamy intense conditioner containing protein and essential oils that help prevent breakage by strengthening and repairing dry, damaged hair. To mend your split ends and avoid breakage, fortify your hair with the essential oils and protein in this product. Your hair will look and feel softer and healthier and will be conditioned from root to tip.

What Ms. D has to say:
The first thing I noticed about this DC was that it was very creamy and easy to apply.
You really don't need a lot, but your hair must be somewhat damp to make it easier to distribute.
Immediately after applying, my hair felt soft. When rinsing it out in the shower, I could feel how silky my hair felt. After rinsing out the deep conditioner, I proceed to shampoo in which I do about 3 lather and rinses. I always concentrate on my scalp when shampooing. Each time I used this product, I was left with white build up in my hair. I would have to hop back in the shower to shampoo and rinse again. I'm not sure if it doesn't mix well with my shampoo, but it's annoying.
It makes my hair feel so good, but spending so much time in the shower washing it out is not fun!
Although, after airdrying with my usual leave-ins, my hair felt a little more softer than usual.
Also, if you are not a fan of a bunch of chemicals in a product, including parabens, this not for you. I'm thinking of not using this for that very reason alone. It doesn't smell that great either.
I have only used it twice, so I will give it one more go ahead and let you know how it works out.
How I use it:
I used this product the same way I use any other DC. Apply to dry detangled hair, secure my hair in pony-tailed sections, place conditioning cap on head and keep on overnight.
Rinse/shampoo in the morning.

Will I re-purchase- Nope, luckily I didn't purchase this in the first place. Going back to my staple shortly.
