Hair Care Tip: Hair Cholesterol Deep Conditioner

submitted by Alison Levy

Tip description / details:
By nature I have dry, brittle, weak, broken, coarse, split ends hair. On top of that, every 3 months I get a treatment on my hair to reduce frizziness (similar ingredients to a relaxer, I assume) very damaging. I always blow dry my hair and I'm not so good at the nutrition thing. I've tried so many products and treatments in hopes of helping my hair to no avail. However I've done some research lately and learned about hair cholesterol. I decided to pick up a jar and try it out. Hair Cholesterol can be found at drugstores, beauty supply, I got mine at the dollar store. Its marketed towards African Americans but I'm not sure why. I think it works for everyone. I shampooed with my normal L'oreal shampoo and conditioned with the Cholesterol, left it in for 5 minutes and rinsed well. Styled my hair and found that it (1) made my hair soft and shiny, and (2) prevented breaks (usually when I finish blow drying I cringe over how much hair is left in my brush). So now I use it once a week and my hair seems to improve each week.

Hair Cholesterol

How to prepare:
Purchase hair cholesterol for a few dollars

How to use:
Shampoo as you normally would. Substitute your normal conditioner with Hair Cholesterol. Apply liberally to tips and lengths but avoid the roots if your hair tends to be greasy. Leave in for 5 minutes. Rinse really well the solution is thick and I find giving it an extra rinse helps. Style hair as normal

Results (observed by submitter):
Increased strength, softness, shine!

Costs involved:
few bucks
