Product Test/Mini Review: Megasilk Olive Heat Protection Spray

I recently tested out the Megasilk Olive Heat Protection Spray by Silk Elements. I don't plan on flat ironing my hair much this summer, if at all, but in the event that I do, I want to make sure that my hair is adequately protected from the heat. Instead of doubling up on my ORS Olive Oil lotion, I decided to test out this spray. I've tried other sprays in the past, and they left a sticky residue on my hair. I was therefore very reluctant to use another spray, but since this one is infused with olive oil (Olive oil is my favorite oil. Click here to see why: Olive Oil As A Conditioning Treatment), I decided to give it a shot.

Below is a video in which I share the results of my product test, and discuss what I think about the product. After that, you'll see a detailed description of the product, followed by a summary of my overall findings.



Product description as printed on the back of the bottle: Silk Elements Megasilk Olive Heat Protection Spray, formulated with Olive Oil & Silk Protein, helps protect the hair from damage caused by heated appliances. Leaves hair soft and silky while providing a luxurious shine.

Directions: Spray on damp hair before drying or spray on dry hair before using any heated styling appliance.

Price: I almost forgot to mention that this product costs $6.79 at Sally's Beauty Supply (Use your Sally's beauty card for the lower price if purchasing online).

In summary:
This product smells awesome! It comes out in an aerosol mist, so don't be fooled by the spray bottle packaging. In fact, it is very lightweight and left my hair feeling silky smooth and soft to the touch. I will definitely use this again the next time I straighten my hair.

Hey lady! Your hair has definitely grown...Congrats! Your review was great. I could see how silky your hair was after you straightened the first half. I must try this product myself once I start heat styling again. Keep up the good work!
