No matter what your hair type is, you can probably benefit from a mayonnaise treatment. Mayonnaise is full of moisture-sealing oils and protein rich egg yolks, and it will give your hair shine, luster and make it incredibly soft. Here are instructions on how to do a mayonnaise treatment. It’s very simple.
First, get your mayonnaise. You could easily use whatever is in your fridge. You should let it warm down to room temperature first, though, so the fats will more easily absorb into your hair follicles. You could also make your own basic mayonnaise by mixing one or two egg yolks and one tablespoon of vinegar in a mixer and then slowly adding six tablespoons of jojoba oil, coconut oil, grapeseed oil or olive oil into the mixer until mayonnaise is formed.
To do the treatment, first rinse your hair with hot water. This will allow the follicles in your hair to expand and the nutrients in the mayonnaise to enter.
Section off your hair and spread the mayonnaise through from root to tip, like you would with your conditioner, until it is completely saturated. Put a shower cap on your head, a towel on top of the cap and leave the treatment in for at least 20 minutes. The shower cap and the towel will trap the heat in. When you think enough time has passed, rinse the mayonnaise out with warm water. If your hair is really damaged, you could leave the treatment in overnight. Just be sure to protect your bedding.
If your hair is at all damaged or feeling dry, it will certainly benefit from this simple treatment, and learning how to do a mayonnaise treatment is a piece of cake.
