2. Homemade Cholesterol Hair Treatment:
One of the oldest forms of cholesterol is mayonnaise. Back in the 1950s, when the heat-styling tools were first made public, hair was conditioned with mayonnaise bought from stores or homemade ones using oils and eggs which were a rage. The results of this hair treatment were good as it left the hair soft, shiny and made the curls and waves voluminous. But, it did leave the hair smelling like an egg salad! Thanks to the modern technology, the modern mayonnaise that is used for cholesterol hair treatment provides softness, sheen and luster to hair with a pleasant fragrance.
