A Brief Introduction
Itis a curious fact that most cholesterol hair conditioners which arecommercially available contain alcohol – that is to say the veryfactor which dries out our hair.

Thenthe hair is to be drawn on top of the head, and wrapped about by acouple of feet of saran wrap that the mayonnaise may be contained.
Nextoff, pre-heated towels (preferably in the dryer) come on top of thecontraption. The heat will trigger deep conditioning. This positionis to be held for about ten minutes, when another heat towel is to beapplied – only to be left on for another ten minutes.
Whenthe second ten minutes are up, the towels as the plastic wrap are tobe removed and the hair should be shampooed as usual.
Thistreatment is to be taken on a monthly basis, and it should keep theperson's hair nice, soft and shiny.
Alternatively,the treatment may be repeated even on a weekly basis if the person'shair ends are all broken and damaged by other chemical treatments.
Also,if the person's scalps are already naturally oily, the treatment maybe alternatively applied only to his or her hair ends – again on aweekly basis.
