DIY: Simple 5-minute Hair Mayonnaise Treatment

 
Throughout my hair journey, I’ve tried so many natural hair products that I’ve fallen in love with over time. Many of them have been my staple products in my daily regimen. Every now and then, I also like to create my own Do-It-Yourself (DIY) concoctions.
 
One hair treatment that has made a big difference in my hair the past few months has been my homemade hair mayonnaise treatment. It’s really simple to make and provides extra body and strength. 
 
Since I’ve been using my hair mayonnaise treatment, I’ve had overall less hair breakage. Literally, I have decreased my normal hair shedding by 85% from just using this treatment. It’s provided amazing results.
 
Although I will continue using my regular hair care products as well as trying new ones, this treatment will definitely be part of my regular wash day routine.

The benefits of any DIY treatment is that you have ultimate control over the ingredients and can alter the recipe for what works for your hair.
 
The Secret Sauce: Hair Mayonnaise Treatment

What you will need:
 
  • Small plastic bowl
  • Tablespoon 
  • Teaspoon
  • Almond Oil
  • Castor oil 
  • Jojoba oil 

(If you would like, you can substitute oils listed with olive, grapeseed or coconut oil). 

After shampooing, scoop three (3) or more tablespoons of Mayonnaise into a bowl.
  • Add 2 teaspoons of almond oil
  • Add 2 teaspoons of jojoba oil
  • Add 1 teaspoon of castor oil
[You may add 2 tablespoons of plain, Greek yogurt to add thickness to the mixture.  You can also add a teaspoon of honey to hold it together.] Mix well.

 

 

 
(Note: The mixture will tend to be loose especially once as your natural body temperature heats the conditioning treatment).
 
(Suggestion: Let your mixture sit at room temperature to avoid applying cold on wet hair).
 
Apply the treatment to each section. Massage through each section. Lightly comb through and twist or wrap hair sections. Put on a plastic cap. It helps to use a Turbie Twist over a plastic cap to avoid messy drips.
 
Leave on for 15 to 30 minutes. Rinse thoroughly.

 

You will definitely need a detangling spray since this DIY treatment does not have extra slip especially if you’re accustomed to commercial conditioners.
 
The almond oil does provide softness and sheen to the hair. The castor oil also thickens the strands and seals the ends while jojoba oil moisturizes the hair. The honey will also act as a humectant.
 
Over a period of time, you will notice less hair breakage as long as you are maintaining your hair properly.
