are you including co-washing or are you specifically taking about shampooing?

I'd be careful of that. 6 weeks is a long time to leave the megatek build up on your hair. It could be damaging, and I'm not sure how effective it would be after a while.

brown, I don't mean any harm, but I have read your previous threads and I think you are more focused on length than health. Your hair will grow when you have a healthy scalp and your hair has a proper moisture/protien balance.

I, personally, cannot go a week without washing my hair and my scalp would be on fire.  Going six weeks while using a protein based growth aid is just asking for trouble.
 
Instead of relying on a growth aids, try focusing on staple products like shampoo or no poo, conditioners (protein and moiturizing ones), moisturizers. I think once you get the staples down, your hair will thrive on its own.
 
ETA: my response is based on the original posting and not the revised "original post".

Wow I just saw this thread in the Weave section too. I guess the original thread stated that she only washed her hair every six weeks.

Well this is something I USED TO DO. My hair would stink, be very unsightly and just an all around bad habit. But I never used Megatek. Putting anything in your hair and leaving it for long periods is sure to cause buildup.

I'm not worried about the MT giving you damage, the rest of your hair care practices could.

I do braids/weaves & use MT but I wash every week & sometimes co-wash 1x a week as well. I agree w/the other ladies. Even if you have a weave you can wash it 1x pr week, unless you have a net weave..I think its harder w/a net weave to wash than w/other methods. I don't suggest doing this. Also when ur usig MT u need to use moisture as well, besides the oil that you use in your MT mix, you need a moisture spray to use daily. Too much protein=breakage!
