I was just researching some hair growth advise from some BHM ladies. The say that MTG- Shapley's original mane tail groom is great for hair growth yet it smell bad. So I went to their website http://www.shapleys.com/products_view.aspx?articleid=17

I found out that it is used on horses!?! WTH? I want my hair to grow but is this stuff safe?

MTG is for horses. Not sure how safe it is. Its a mix of sulfur powder and cade oil. It smells like straight poison. Dead

The company has a product (supposed to be MTG for humans and supposedly smells "better") The product is called SULU.  Stern%20Smile  (keep in mind this is not a Black/ African American owned company)

SULU smells just like MTG, and is marked up in price for a small quantity. You can purchase a 32 oz bottle of MTG for $16.00- $20.00 depending on where you go (I purchased my 32 oz bottle for $15.90 + taxes at a local horse store) and the SULU is 8oz for  $12.00---- Confused
Dead
There are several threads on MTG -- Just say the word and I will do a quick search for you in a second and post it below-- since I have nothing but time on my hands these days LOL

** I (and many other women on the hair boards) think you are better off purchasing some sulfur powder (runs under $7.00 for a bottle that will last you a loooong time) and adding your own (safe) oils.


I can't stand seeing African American/ Black women getting ripped off!!! KNOWLEDGE IS POWER LADIES.

I use MTG and the smell doesn't bother me. Many ladies mix it with Mega Tek (which smells like pina colada) to minimize the smell. MTG smells like sulfur to me.
 
It does promote hair growth! It has about 4 ingredients in it. I've been using it for about one month and I haven't suffered from any side effects and  I am still breathing LOL It's safe in my book!
 
I do plan on making my own sulfur mix in the future as yaya does so I can compare and contrast the difference.

Yes I just don't see how ppl could put that in their hair. They say it makes it grow but is this theory all in our minds?

I use Mega tek which is also for horses (lol).I also use Cowboy Magic and Survivor Detangler (also for horses). Speaking only for myself,  it is NOT theory but I can show you the proof that my hair is much thicker then it was and I have received excellent results!
 
Ever heard of Mane & Tail? Go into your local BSS and you will find a whole slew of products sold there.
 
I feel completely safe using the product

I've been using MTG and it smells like bacon to me. If you read the labels of the products that were produced originally for horses, you will find that they are safe for human use. Between the search function here, google and youtube you'll definitely find some great information.

I blend my MTG with Aloe Vera Juice in a spray bottle and mist it onto my roots. I also mix the MTG with the MT, MN and JBCO.

If you are afraid to use the product I'd suggest you purchase something that suites your comfort zone.

I really want to try M-T-G. I might ditch Mega-Tek for it.
