Good morning  fabulous naturals!

As I am awaiting my orders on my absolute favorite of all favorite deep conditioner "Olive you".  I knew my wash day had come and gone, I decided to go ahead and use what I had on hand for my DC, knowing it was just a one time temporary replacement.  So, I choose lustersilk olive oil cholesterol.  This will be a very short review.  This stuff in my opinion is .....GARBAGE !

I try to keep backup conditioners on hand in the event that I run out and awaiting the staple conditioner that I use.  First let me say this will never happen again (god willing), secondly I hadn't realized that this mess had parabens in it.  Parabens is a no no for me just as sulfate products  I stay far away from products with parabens for my hair as well as my daughters hair.  So, that was huuuuge problem from the start.  I didn't bother to do a pH test on this mess because it wasn't worth me wasting one of my pH strips on something I plan to never...ever....ever ever.....use again.

This did absolutely nothing for my hair.  I immediately knew it lack major moisture the minute I rinsed it out.  My hair was dry and frizzy , I don't mind frizz, in fact I welcome it....natural frizz. The results was so bad  after using this  I had to co-wash my hair again, later that night.

This stuff is nothing...I mean nothing compared to the all natural DC's out there.  I felt the difference in texture and substance the minute I felt it on my hand.  I see why it's priced at $2.99 or so.  As I''m sure we are all aware of the saying "you get what you pay for".

This was really a eye opener for me,100% Natural products are surely my friend and I must stick to what I know.   To all of the cholesterol lovers out there...sorry :(

Thanks for reading ladies, and as always remember to stay.......naturally fabulous!

LOL... I was laughing so hard reading this post. You really trashed that product!!
Thank you for letting us know. Sometimes I think about buying beauty supply products that are less expensive, but what is the point if all they do is do more harm than good to one's hair?

Take care,

wow you rarely do a negative review on anything so i KNOW this product had to be the absolute worst for you to write this! im so sad you had this experience. i had a similar one too, in my attempts to be a frugal naturalista. but sometimes using something cheap ends up with so many more costs than you expected!

I'm sorry that it didn't work out for you. I have the aloe vera one and it is CRAP. I have to add oil just for it to be decent. I might as well throw it away because it was cheap. No more Lustrasilk for me.
