Truth: A couple months ago, I did a Sally Beauty Supply Store Haul, with one of the items being the Silk Elements Megasilk Olive Moisturizing Treatment. This product lives up to most of it's promises. First of all, let me start out by saying that this conditioner has a great fresh/clean fragrance that lingers in the hair for more than 24 hrs. It's a light scent that is perfect if you are wearing your hair down. As for the conditioner's promises, I can say that it does strengthen and soften the hair. I've used this conditioner with and without heat and it works MUCH better with heat for 30 mins. I used it under a hooded dryer for 30 mins and my hair was like silk! It was extremely smooth to the touch, full of volume, fluffy and soft. Although this conditioner is thick and has Olive Oil in it, my hair didn't feel weighed down. In fact, it had a nice swing to it every time I turned my head. That's a plus! My hair was more manageable than usual, especially my roots. This treatment contains Hydrolyzed Silk which is a protein, however, I wouldn't call it a "protein treatment" per se. Hydrolyzed Silk is known for it's moisture binding properties and repair to the hair. It softens the hair while strengthening it. It helps to add shine, body, and manageability to hair. It's a happy medium and perfect for those with fine to medium coarse hair to use weekly.
