I usually don't like to give bad reviews, but I felt like i had to say something on this post... I have rough, dry hair, so I was really excited to see this recipe. I usually have to use a strong conditioner every day, so I decide to try this instead. My hair is actually worse than it was when I started... I followed it to the letter, but my hair is like straw right now, worse than i've ever seen it... Just a warning - it def doesn't work for everyone! Try it on a day you're staying home to make sure it works!!!

Excellent, this really works, Charishma was right. However, after rinsing, my hair felt coarse, so I used a little shampoo and conditioner to soften it. Did a quick blow dry and wow ... great results. Thank you to all involved.

The oils and cholesterol will help moisturize and smooth the hair but beware people with bleached highlights, silver, and especially platinum hair. The coffee can stain. I have bleached platinum and it will absorb anything with a lot of color staining properties. So just skip the coffee. Other colors of hair it should be great for.
