    My sister says your total cholesterol should be your HDL + LDL. However, on my last blood test, my HDL + LDL was 10 points lower than my total cholesterol. So, I found some web sites that have the following formula:

    HDL + LDL + (Triglyceride * 20%) = Total Cholesterol

    The formula above does work to give me my total cholesterol given the other #’s (HDL, LDL, and Triglycerides) on my last blood test results. But, I want to know why my sister’s always come back as:

    HDL + LDL = Total Cholesterol

    Some web sites say to calculate it one way and others say the other way. Anyone know why they would be different?

    Ok, I’m convince on not leaving the Cholesterol conditioner in my hair. You’re the 3rd person to mention the white balls. Thanks!

  3. ShidaNatural says:

    We shall see. 😉

    I like the giovanni side and i agree i don’t no if i would want to spend $9 every two days, and i use a lot of gel also and my hair isn’t nearly as long as yours is but like you said you never no

  5. ShidaNatural says:

    I used the Giovanni gel to define & hold my whole head of curls today, and I have to say, I love the results! You know I will be doing a video tonight to show you guys.

  6. cecillbill says:

    I didn’t get the white balls. I did overuse it once and got a filmy feel to hair, but no white balls, even with gel on top. But, yeah, 3/4 commentors with white ball issues likely means it’s not good as leave-in, lol.

  7. cecillbill says:

    That gel works for my son, 3b3c corkscrew curls, but wasn’t great for my daughters or myself. Will check out your vid to see how you used it and the results. Maybe I applied it to long hair wrong (my daughters) and used too much on my hair.

  8. ShidaNatural says:

    I need to see pics of ur kids… seems like u have an interesting household of hair… lol

    I bought that olive oil cholesterol the other day and was only used it once. I saw that it didn’t say to wash out…but I didn’t like it as a leave in. I became flustered and confused so I just stored it away lol

  10. ShidaNatural says:

    I tried using it with my co-wash, leave-in this morning and I don’t think I like it much as a leave-in. I may incorporate it with my deep conditioning treatments… maybe mix it with my Amla powder.

    i haven’t tried this product but it sounds like maybe you can use it like cynthiarf does. she’s got a video about finger combing or something like that (its one of my favorites) and she uses a cholesterol conditioner similar to that one.

  12. ShidaNatural says:

    I’ll check out cynthiarf’s vid about the cholesterol & see how she incorporated it in her styling… Thanks

    Hi Shidanatural, I was reading the side bar and you mentioned that a book called “Curly Girl” was a good read, does it have info about black hair like 4b/4c hair?

  14. ShidaNatural says:

    It has a small section about African American hair but mainly it’s about general care for curly hair. Talks about not using shampoo, & if ur a person that has 2 use shampoo she explains which sulfates r the harshest & which are less harsh. She talks bout what 2 look for in hair products. She gives scientific breakdown on the hair strand. The Curly Girl Hair Care Styling Program Routine. She gives hair recipes for moisture and such. I think any curly type can gain some knowledge from this book.

    hey…at the end of the day, what type of hold did you get from the quantum?…i saw the la giovanni vid and you had very firm results from that gel

  16. ShidaNatural says:

    I haven’t used the Quantum all over my head yet. I’ll prolly continue to use the Giovanni gel the rest of this week, then switch up and use the Quantum gel next week.

  17. tommi3109 says:

    Thank you, I believe I will go and purchase this book today, I like to read anyway so I can learn in general.

  18. ShidaNatural says:

    Get the book… I think you’ll gain some knowledge for sure. I’m looking into purchasing some other hair books too, and you know I will share with you guys what I picked up.

  19. sinceremami says:

    if u like the olive oil cholesterol and want more they sell it at dollar general and most dollar stores for $2 so u won’t have to pay almost $4 for it

  20. ShidaNatural says:

    I’ll try it out a few more times to determine if I want to buy it again, and if I do, I’ll def check out the dollar stores… Thanks!

    The Lustrasilk Cholesterol Olive Oil is very good. I use the shingling method and my hair comes out great!

  22. I bout this at the hair suppy store the other day for like 4.80 and bought it and I was at dollar general today shopping for some gel and saw it for a 1.50. I was so mad. The hair store jipped me out my money. I havent used it yet but will be using it soon.

  23. You posted this on my Bday. Woot Woot. Go Geminis go Geminis. lol

    Let me stop. I loooove Lustrasilk. That stuff is the freakin greatest. Plenty of natural ingredients, slip for days, quenches your hair’s need for moisture, and to top it all off it’s cheap as dirt especially for the amount you get. I love it.

  24. I used the Olive Oil Cholestrol too! its awesome!

  25. MsCrocker1 says:

    Hi I just brought the cholesterol I think its will work great.I saaw ur video u put alot of things in ur hair how come?

  26. ShidaNatural says:

    @MsCrocker1 I like to put on some kind of leave-in conditioner / moisturizer to prevent hard crunchy curls after putting in gel. I need gel to define, hold, and elongate my curls.
