Finally! Found the Lustrasilk Olive Oil
 
I had to go to Sally Beauty in Waltham and it was the only one on the shelf.

And I got that Ion hard hat dryer too. Used my Sally's 15% off receipt coupon, and got another coupon!

I'm trying out the cholesterol version today under KCCC.

I'm excited to see how it goes it's about 50% dry at this point and so far so good. :thumbright:

There's another thread on using different leave-ins with KCCC and I posted about it there earlier today.

SBB, I wish I'd known you wanted Lustrasilk Olive Oil -- I would've sent you my tub of it! Sadly, it does nothing for my persnickety hair.

Have you used it yet? What do you think?

Boomygrrl 05-07-2009 10:55 AM

Isn't it better in lower dewpoints?

Suburbanbushbabe 05-07-2009 04:52 PM

Jillipoo, it was a back burner purchase/impulse buy. I was at the store to buy a hair dryer and asked about it and they had it.

I like it better than the Shea butter as a leave-in -- the LSBC is a bit rough as a leave-in and I'm concerned that color will stain my hair. I mixed the Olive Oil with a little KBB Super Silky today (love that stuff).

burgundy_locks 05-07-2009 05:02 PM

Well i went to sally's looking for the shea butter lustrasilk but it was between the aloe vera one and the olive oil one... i went with olive oil :). wish me luck! and post usage tips if possible!

Suburbanbushbabe 05-09-2009 07:01 PM

I'm going to try a twist and curl with the Olive, maybe a little Super Silky and use Hairveda whipped clouds as the "sealer"

I agree, but unfortunately after several days of using it, my hair starts to react to one of the oils in it. :angry2: I think it might be the wheat germ oil.

Actually, I didn't read that article. Thanks for the link! To be honest, I'm not 100% sure what it was in the LSOO that my hair reacted to. At first my hair loved it but after a week or so my hair reacted just like it does when I use protein. It was dry, crispy and rough to the touch. Too bad, cause I was getting great definition from it.:sad3:

@Magoo - do you apply it over several days to your hair? The accumulation may be affecting your hair. I only apply on wash day, then fluff out on day 2-3 with another product.

Magoo 05-10-2009 03:17 PM

I'm not one of those lucky ones that gets second day hair. I've cut it out of my routine for now and maybe I might try using it once or twice a week as a leave in and see if my hair tolerates it better cause I was really loving it.

ETA: Maybe using it everyday as a leave in was causing all the oils to coat my hair (almost like cones) and not letting any more moisture in. My hair gets build up pretty easily.
