Hair care can be tricky. With so many options in hair care treatments and the availability of so many different commercial hair masks, it is hard to decide on what we should put in our hair.
While commercial products are easily available and get the job done, with a little bit of research and a couple of natural ingredients, you can get the same results at a fraction of the price. Mayonnaise is one such ingredient that is commonly used in natural hair care treatments.
Using mayonnaise masks is ideal for those people with dry hair that really needs to be rehydrated.
Mayonnaise can help your hair in the following ways:
Mayonnaise cannot break the bonds in curly hair to straighten it like with a rebonding treatment. But with regular use, it can definitely smoothen frizzy hair and make it appear more straight.
Because of its rich content of amino acids and nourishing oils, mayonnaise is one of the best ingredients you could use to condition your hair.
Mayonnaise contains egg yolks, vinegar, and oils that work together to nourish and moisturize your hair. The presence of L-cysteine, an amino acid, in mayonnaise helps it nourish your scalp to promote healthy hair growth.
Mayonnaise contains vinegar which is an effective ingredient for balancing the scalp’s pH levels and oil production. Excessive oil production is one of the leading causes for dandruff. Using mayonnaise soothes the scalp while unclogging and tightening the follicles. This helps curb dandruff.
How to Use it:
Massage the mixture of lemon and mayonnaise,
leave it for 20 minutes,
and then you can clean it.
Use this treatment maximum once a week to get a better result.
Surely, it is not that hard to have a beautiful and healthy hair; with a simple mayonnaise and lemon juice, you can have a lovely hair.
Protects Colored Hair
Colored and processed hair often tends to have damaged cuticles. Cuticles that are damaged and not sealed shut tends to bleed out the color a lot quicker than healthy cuticles. Mayonnaise helps smooth the cuticles and seal in color.
Calms Frizzy Hair
As I mentioned before, mayonnaise helps seal the hair’s cuticle shut which keeps moisture from the atmosphere from sneaking into your hair shaft. This keeps your hair calm and smooth.
Defines Curly Hair
Any girl with curly hair will tell you that managing curls is no joke. A lot of effort goes into defining curls and to keep the hair from looking like a frizzy mess. Using mayo helps define curls by treating dryness and frizz.
According to the type of hair of each person, we should apply the mayonnaise to one or other zones. As we continue, we will briefly explain these conditions.
- Dry and fine hair
When it comes to dry and fine hair, it should be applied from root to tip once every two weeks for 20 minutes.
If you notice that your hair is getting greasy, despite washing it well with shampoo, reduce use to once a month.
- Greasy scalp
If you hair is dry but your scalp is greasy, it is preferable to apply only from the middle of your hair to the tips once every two weeks.
Once you notice that you hair is more hydrated, decrease use to once a month.
- Dry hair
If your hair is dry and there is a lot of breakage, it is better to only use the yolk of the egg and to add two tablespoons of honey (50 g)
We hope that these tips and remedies about using mayonnaise are useful for you so that you can enjoy incredible hair all year!
