Festivals are over and life is back to the normal routine. I am sure you all had lots of fun during the festivals; I too had so much fun with friends and family. While I was busy in festival preparations, I could not get any time to take care of my hair and to make them look good. I went for quick fixes like blow drying and ironing my hair several times. All this hot styling rips off the moisture out of the hair and makes them look dry and dull and if you have naturally dry and curly hair, then the situation gets worse. Therefore, today we decided to pamper my hair with a moisturizing hair pack and thought it would be great to share the same with you all.
Mayonnaise is basically a rich mixture of natural oils and eggs which is rich in natural fats and vitamin A,B and D, very good for hair or skin to provide moisture. It is an all natural and inexpensive way to provide deep conditioning treatment to hair.
So, here is the step-by-step recipe of a very moisturizing, hydrating and a very easy mayonnaise hair treatment:
1 cup Mayonnaise (for shoulder length hair, take more or less as per your hair length, and take less mayonnaise if you have oily hair), olive oil, essential oil of your choice (to combat the smell of mayonnaise), one bowl and a spoon.
Gather all the ingredients needed. Take 1 cup or 4 big spoons of mayonnaise in the bowl.
Add 2 spoons full of olive oil in it. Put a few drops of essential oil of your choice and mix them together very well.
Divide your hair in 4 parts by parting from front to back and then from ear to ear. Now, divide each part again in 4 parts and apply the mixture in your hair and scalp too.
After covering your hair and scalp completely with mayonnaise mixture, cover it up with a plastic wrap, or shower cap and then with a towel to create heat inside, this will help the pack to penetrate deep and work better.
Leave the pack on for 1 hour minimum and then wash your hair with cold water using any mild shampoo. Do not wash your hair with hot water, as that can cook the egg in mayonnaise and will leave a sticky film on hair, so use cold water only to wash hair 😛
That is all and you will get soft, moisturized hair like never before.
One can add extra egg also in this pack if you want, or if you are using the vegetarian mayonnaise which claims to have no egg in it, then add an egg if you can. However, if you are vegetarian like me and cannot bring egg inside home, then buy the mayonnaise with egg and use it only for your hair. This way you will get the goodness of egg for your hair without breaking the “no egg at home” rule 🙂 You can skip the essential oil if you have no issue with the smell of mayonnaise. I have used it just to suppress the smell.
This mayonnaise hair pack can also be used for kids as an effective lice treatment. Thick mayonnaise helps to suffocate the lice, and makes it easier to remove eggs without the use of harsh anti-lice shampoos. So, what are you waiting for, open your refrigerator and take out that mayonnaise and give this deep conditioning treatment to your hair to get soft, moisturized hair.
