What is mayonnaise hair treatment and how effectively it work?
- APPLY mayonnaise like the way you do with conditioner. Focus on the ends as they are the oldest part of your hair, and avoid your roots especially if you have fine or thin hair.
- PUT ON a shower cap (a plastic bag works just as well) or a heated thermal cap. This step canincrease the absorption rate of the mayonnaise into your hair.
- LEAVE the treatment in your hair for 15-30 minutes.
- CLEANSE with a gentle shampoo to remove the mayonnaise from your hair. If you feel you still have some residue you can cleanse again.
You can buy store bought mayonnaise or you can make your own with eggs, olive oil, lemon juice or apple cider vinegar, and coconut oil. Whichever mayonnaise you choose, always remember you can also add other natural ingredients such as olive oil, avocado, or honey to mix a custom cocktail for your hair needs. In fact, specifically adding almond oil and vinegar can help to get rid of lice.
When you treat your hair with mayonnaise, you get the benefit of L-cysteine–an amino acid and powerful antioxidant found in eggs that can give your hair strength, shine and structure. According to the Health and Body Fitness website, L-cysteine not only makes up 18 percent of your hair, but is a keratin- forming substance that increases the hair shaft and hair growth density.
