Black women have traditional had trouble with dry, brittle hair because of the natural curve or curl of their hair follicles. Black hair needs plenty of moisture to maintain its elasticity and strength. According to Eqyss, the maker of Mega-Tek Rebuilder, they decided to make the conditioner for human use because women were calling them and requesting it. Women, particularly Black women, have had such positive experiences with the conditioner that they wanted it as a part of their hair care regimen. The company, in response made a version for humans. The original version was made for horses.
According to Eqyss, Mega-Tek makes hair 30% stronger so less hair falls out. Apparently, the moisturizer is also good for calluses on the hands and feet as well as a cuticle moisturizer to help the nails grow. The company also reports positive results for hair growth in chemotherapy patients as well.

Apply Mega-Tek Rebuilder as you would your regular conditioner. Massage the scalp thoroughly with the conditioner, allowing the blood supply to increase in the scalp. Leave the conditioner in your hair for three to five minutes. Rinse the conditioner out of your hair thoroughly.
Dry your hair as you normally would. Instead of using a cream or oil, apply small amounts of Mega-Tek conditioner to the scalp. Also, apply small amounts of Mega-Tek conditioner to the tips of your hair to help protect it from the elements. Style your hair as you normally would.
Do not use too much heat or harsh chemicals in your hair. The point of Mega-Tek Conditioner is to strengthen your hair and prevent breakage, allowing it to grow long. Using unhealthy products and using too much heat in your hair is counterproductive.

Change in Megatek Ingredients?
According to Mr. Ledford, National Sales Manager of EQYss, the ingredients in Megatek has NOT changed. The USA does not require animal grooming products to list ingredients nor does it require any particular order in the way the product is listed. However, EQYss has always listed the ingredients on the bottle as a courtesy to its customers so they would know what was in it.
According to Mr. Ledford, EQYss now has to comply with Euro standards and so the ingredients on the bottle has to be listed in a particular order. The order of the ingredients list has changed to comply with Euro standards, however the formula itself has not changed.
If you have any questions, go to the EQYss website and email them for further information.
