I love cholesterol on my hair!! But never inside my body!It leaves my hair so soft afterwards so it's worthy of some credit! It's got a green thick almost jam-like consistency that smooths,detangles and clumps my coils. It's like it just lays my hair into submission without fail each and every time!
I think it has stella ingredients minus the mineral oil which may not fare well with those that follow the CG method. It is still down in the middle of the ingredients list at number ten. Castor oil, my favourite oil is second on the ingredients and ironically the "cholesterol" itself is number 17!
Since I 'sulphate' wash approximately once a week, I am not worried about buildup. I'm aware that Le kair did a mineral free version of Shea butter cholesterol though it appears that this may have been discontinued. Speaking of buildup, it does buildup very quickly. So I would advise that one spaces out its usage. I love using this to co-wash about once or twice a week and it leaves my hair feeling so soft after rinsing!
I have tried it for a wash and go and the definition was CRAZY SICK! I think I must have been heavy handed though because it completely dried with a dull cast and I don't like my hair looking dull/grey!I personally think this stuff should get a lot more props, because I feel that it doesn't get praised enough in the natural hair community. What do you think about cholesterol?
