Two of the main ingredients of mayo are oil and eggs, both great to fight dryness and give your hair the shine it needs. It is also incredibly rich in vitamin A, C, and antioxidants that help protect the Keratin in the hair. Mayo is especially good for people with curly hair as it helps with curl definition and less frizz.
This mask is as simple, just slightly dampen your hair, saturate the hair and scalp with mayonnaise, cover with a hair cap, and rinse!
Tip: If mayo smell makes you gag, simply add a few drops of essential oils in the mayo and voila! Some people prefer adding vanilla, but I don’t think it does a good enough job of masking the smell.
There are many variations of a mayo hair mask, some people make their own mayo or add ingredients like avocado, additional oils, vinegar and more. I like to keep it simple when it comes to the mayo hair mask (I get the one with olive oil and lime), but occasionally heat it up a bit to use it as a warm oil treatment. What is your preferred hair treatment method? Share it with me so I can give it a try!
