No-cholesterol doesn't change the texture of the coat. It is just oil, basically.
I would also caution about using Crown Royale products on a daily basis or even every other day. They do have silicone in them and will break down the coat over time. It is one thing to use them at shows, but I wouldn't recommend them for conditioning.
Coat care requires a lot of work. Dogs need to be bathed on a weekly basis and blown dry. If you leave the dog to air dry, the under coat will matt and clump and start to fall out. When drying the dog, I tell people to dry until they "feel dry" and then do it another 10-15 minutes so they are REALLY dry.
Dirty coat breaks and it does not grow so it is important that the hair is kept clean.
I recommend ProGro as a conditioner. It is light weight and doesn't change the coat, but does a wonderful job at keeping it in good condition and helping to bring back coat that needs work.
