I’ve been using Lustrasilk Shea Butter Cholesterol PLUS for a while now. I have used this on both relaxed and natural hair with the same results. The first time I used this Shea Butter Cholesterol, I applied it to my lightly towel-blotted hair after I shampooed and then sat under a bonnet dryer for 20 minutes with a plastic processing cap. The results were mediocre at best. The product was SUPER watery, and even after I rinsed it out, I couldn’t see any marked difference in my hair.

The second time, I applied the Cholesterol to my dry hair and sat under my bonnet dryer again for 20 minutes. I noticed a BIG difference (compared to my first-time use on wet hair). So, I would recommend using this as a deep conditioner on DRY or VERY LIGHTLY damp (not soaking or wet) hair.

The Cholesterol does separate and produce a lot of liquid in-between uses, but I just simply stir the liquid back in prior to use, so that’s not a big deal for me. What I especially love is the value. I purchased this for less than $3 from my local beauty supply store. This is a HUGE tub for the price! If you’re someone who likes to doctor up your conditioning or pre-poo treatments with oils or other goodies, this is a great buy because you have a lot to work with. Just make sure you scoop out the amount you want to use into a separate container and then add your oils, etc. (Don’t add your goodies directly to the jar!)

Is this the world’s best deep conditioner? Probably not. However, I don’t have any major complaints. I just wish this Cholesterol was thicker since I have fine hair. But, given the price, and the fact that this doesn’t contain any mineral oil, lanolin, or petroleum, I will definitely repurchase and use it as a base to add natural oils when I deep condition.
