Anyone Tried the Queene Helen Gel with Cholesterol?

I've seen this product around and intend to buy it tomorrow. It's a yellow-colored gel with Cholesterol in it, by Queene Helen, available at drugstores. Has anyone used this or a similar product? If so, how have the results been (on curly hair)?

    I just started CG the past 2 months, so I am still learning what to do and not do. (must leave this disclaimer!)

    Before I went CG, I used to do the cholesterol thing once a week, leaving it in for anywhere from 5-20 mins, then rinsing it out. Its reasonably priced and left my hair soft and conditioned, I liked it. If I had any left here, I would go thro the ingredients, but alas, I used it all before converting to CG.

    I used it as a weekly DT - liked it alot. HTH!

    Update:
    I was out shopping today - saw this and checked the ingredients. It does have laurel sulfate in it, which is a no-no if you are doing CG.

    I have tried this gel before, but I honestly didn't care for it. It's pretty good to use for slicking your har back but for curl defining purposes it just doesn't cut it in my opinion. Also, it left my curls feeling drier than before I had used it.
