Shiny Hair with Mayonnaise

I heard mayo and raw eggs mixed together and left on unwashed hair for 45-60 minutes will leave your hair healthy and shiny. Does this work?

It is a great conditioner for hair but you don't need the eggs. They are already in the mayo. I used to use it every week when I had very long hair. I still use it several times a year. I have always been accused of using the new hair shiners on the market now, but I've never used them. I believe from my experiences that is helps cut down on split ends also. It has been a hair staple of mine for over 30 years. I swear by it.

I don't recommend mayo or egg for hair. They are pretty hard to rinse out of the hair. You wind up using shampoo to remove them, thus negating any conditioning effects. Better to buy a cheap drugstore conditioner, apply it, cover with a plastic bag and leave it on for a while.

To get your hair the shiniest it's ever been and to get it to feel great, it is very good to put mayo on your hair and let it set for 10 to 15 minutes. You must completely rinse it out. If you don't your hair will be more greasy than John Travolta's in "Grease", and it will smell like my grandma's potato salad. So be careful and I hope my tip will help.
