My hair was getting dry so I picked up some Lustrasilk Shea Butter Cholesterol Plus from a local beauty supply.
Says: triple acting formula / shea butter+cholesterol+mango / treats & prevents heat & chemical damage,
hydrates dry, over-processed & porous hair / no heat cap necessary.
After you shampoo, wring out the excess water and slather this stuff on, but try to keep it at least 2" from your roots or it'll make your scalp too oily. Comb it through with a wide-tooth comb and clip it up with a claw clip if your hair's long. Leave it on for about 3-5 minutes and rinse thoroughly with warm water. Follow up with a cold rinse.
Now, everyone's hair is different, what works for some won't work for others, and though I've used cholesterol in the past and didn't like it, this stuff works great (smells nice too)! My hair is sooo picky so I was pleasantly surprised at how silky and smooth it turned out. Even better, I only paid $2.49 for a 20 oz. tub!!
