Hey ladies. I got my new bottle of Megatek today. The bottle looks a little different, because they're celebrating 20 years, and the bottle has flowers and things on it.. but it's still the same Megatek Equine Rebuilder. I was looking at the ingredients, and I see that the hydrolyzed keratin protein is no longer the second ingredient. Also, they took out the marine protein and amino acids. The hydrolyzed keratin protein is now wayy further down on the list. I'm pretty upset about this, because this is what made the product work so well. Now I feel like I wasted my money, because I could've gotten another protein product for my hair.
 
Has anyone used the new Megatek, and if so, how are your results? I'm wondering if I could return this product.. Should I contact Eqyss directly about this?

Oh yea-- and question?:
Does the "new" formula still have mucopolysaccharides listed as an ingredient?

Those are what helped with growth

I never used Megatek, and I have been wanting too. I better go tomorrow to the TSC store and see if they have any old bottles left.

I'm sooo mad! I feel like I just lost $30. I knew I should've just made my own protein mix instead of ordering a bottle of MT. I'll try it though just to see if I get any results from it. Like talia said, I guess they're trying to force us to buy ovation.
 
Here's the new ingredient list:
Deionized water, Steralkonium Chloride, Glycerol Stearate, Cetearyl Alcohol (derived from Palm Oil), Castor Oil Ethoxylate (40), Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E), Panthenol, Hydrolyzed Keratin Protein, Cetrimonium Chloride, Tetrasodium EDTA, DMDM Hydantoin, Methylparaben, Propylparaben, Fragrance.
 
As you see, hydrolyzed keratin protein went from being the second ingredient to the 8th. And no more mucopolysaccharides, or marine proteins for that matter.. tsk tsk tsk.

If I were to add more protein to this new bottle of MT, or if I were to make my own protein mix entirely, would you ladies suggest using hydrolyzed keratin protein or keratin amino acids? I know they're both good for hair, but which is better? To be honest, I'm quite confused as to what the difference between the two is. Amino acids make up protein, so aren't they really the same thing? Anyone know?
