Using Mayonnaise In Your Hair


This may seem like a stupid question, but in response to deep conditioning hair, I have read many times that you can use mayo for this. My question is this: do you put this on wet hair or dry hair? I really want to try this. Thank you in advance for any and all responses to this.

Using Mayonnaise In Your Hair

I think if you put the mayonnaise on your hair when it is wet it will "goop" up on you (mixing the water from your hair with the oil from the mayo) and it will take forever to wash out. I use warm olive oil on my hair, slather it on when it is dry and let it soak in, then BEFORE I wet it I put the shampoo on and then rinse it out. It usually takes a few repeat shampoos to get all the olive oil out. I assume using mayo would work the same. By the way, I found out from experience not to wet my hair first when I had a bunch of olive oil in it! (06/02/2006)

Put mayo on DRY hair-use lots. Cover with a plastic bag clipped with a clothespin or bobby pin (I never let my kids see me putting a plastic bag on my head). Wrap with a warm towel, right out of the dryer. Wonderful warm oil treatment. Another tip... apply shampoo to mayoed hair without water, rub (there won't be much lather) then rinse. Shampoo a second time to remove all traces of mayo. This saves on the amount of shampoo needed to clean mayo out of your hair. You can also whip egg yolks and oil to a mayo texture and use that.

I heard about this too... well I am not to sure if I just used too much or what, but it was crazy hard to get out of my hair. Then once I did it was REALLY oily. I mean ya, it helps dry hair, but it makes it oily. I don't know, it didn't work for me. (06/06/2006)

Don't do it. It made my hair dry and nasty. It literally felt like straw. Yuck! (08/23/2006)

Yeah I remember the mayo is so hard to shampoo out afterward that it doesn't really seem to work as a conditioner for me. I like to use either vegetable oil or olive oil with a plastic bag. First wash your hair and then ring it out so that it is still warm and damp and apply the oil and comb through, then wrap and leave it on for a half an hour and shampoo out with a conditioning shampoo and believe me your hair will feel very soft. I think there are other ways to use the mayo if you add things to it --- that I haven't tried. (11/26/2006)

I used to do this and it worked okay for me, I just didn't put it near the roots, I put it on in the shower after I had shampooed my hair and then left it on for about 5 minutes then I rinsed it out & put some good smelling conditioner where it was at. But my hair is really long, so I just put it on the ends. I wouldn't recommend putting it on the roots, it's like a deep conditioner. (08/05/2007)

Someone told me that putting mayo with mashed avocado is the best deep conditioner. You have to put some hydrating conditioning on after the mayo because of the protein. (09/06/2007)

I did it and it works really good. After shampooing dry your hair to where its damp and put mayo on, leave for around 15 minutes, shampoo it off and put on conditioner. (07/11/2008)

My hair is amazingly soft and hydrated. I love it. I sectioned off my hair and then applied the mayonnaise to my dry hair from roots to ends. Then I put a thin head cap on and put a hot towel over it and let it sit for 20 minutes. I washed it out with pantene shampoo and conditioner and my hair came out silky and smooth. (08/04/2008)

IT WORKS

I used it. I mixed up olive oil with 4 mayonnaise spoons slept with it and washed it the next day and my hair is so nice now. I think I'm doing it today, too. (08/28/2008)

It makes it oily if you just don't wash correctly while "shampooing" it. (08/28/2008)

Hey I've been using mayonnaise for over a year now, it's all that has ever really worked for me. I'll wash my hair, leave lots of conditioner in, rinse it out then towel dry it the best I can, then I put a very small amount in my hair and it turns amazing. (09/03/2008)

It's easiest on damp hair and you leave it on for one hour and only do it once a month. Another thing you can do to go along with this is to only shampoo your hair at the roots. Combined, it really does amazing things for your hair. (10/25/2008)

Believe it or not, this really, really does work, but I recommend doing this if you have SEVERELY DAMAGED HAIR. I think it would leave your hair super oily, but then again, yes, it does kind of make your hair oily but it's better than super dry, straw-like hair right? I recommend not doing it too much though because I'm pretty sure it will dry out your hair. But this treatment is the only treatment that has worked for my straw-like severely damaged hair. It's a miracle worker :D (11/17/2008)
