One of the easiest remedies for shiny hair is to use mayo as a deep conditioner. I know, you might not be thrilled at the idea of putting it in your hair, but many people have tried it and love the results! If you have dry or damaged hair, this hair treatment will work wonders! Mayo contains amino acids and antioxidants that strengthen your hair and give a beautiful shine.
**A jar of mayonnaise (brand does not matter)
**Prep your hair using warm water to get it nice and damp, but not soaking wet.
Scoop some mayonnaise out of the jar and start rubbing it through your hair like you would a conditioner. The amount that you are going to use really depends on the length and thickness of your hair. Feel free to lather on the amount that you feel most comfortable with.
Wrap your head of hair with a plastic wrap, a plastic bag, or shower cap to trap the heat inside. Heat opens the pores and allows the treatment to penetrate strands further and thus work better.
Let the treatment sit on the hair for at least 20 minutes. You can let it sit longer depending on how damaged your hair already is.
Wash the mayonnaise out. This is most easily done in the shower using a diluted shampoo. You may need to shampoo a few times before you are able to get all of the mayonnaise out. Be sure to use the shampoo gently, not tangling the hair.
