Mayonnaise Mayhem

Wednesday, August 24, 2011

This past weekend I was suffering from extreme boredom so I came up with the idea to mayonnaise my hair. Yep...I was THAT bored. I went into my kitchen, put on gloves, and put real mayonnaise on my head and let it sit for about 45 minutes. It took 2 washes to get it all out (I have realllly thick hair) and I had to condition it 3 times and use a deep conditioner after. The end result was not that impressive. My hair was really greasy and had a residue on it and it wasn't any softer than it usually is.

Claims: The protein from the mayonnaise fills in the hair shaft and makes your hair lay flat, giving the appearance of a fuller, shinier hair.


  • Apply mayonnaise to dry or slightly damp hair and let sit for up to an hour (its advised to use a shower cap to avoid getting mayonnaise on your clothes, couch...other get the point)

  • Wash out with shampoo (it will take two or more washes to get all mayonnaise out)

  • Condition hair with moisturising conditioner (I used Kera care conditioner but Vo5 or anything else will work just fine)

  • Deep condition hair for an hour

  • Style as usual
Pros: I got rid of a jar of mayonnaise that would never be used otherwise

Cons: Left my hair with a residue even after conditioning

At the end of the day, I totally support making hair conditioners at home but this remedy didn't live up to the hype....and definitely wasn't worth smelling like a sandwich for two days.

"Sometimes, we are afraid of moving on because we prefer sticking to the things we know all about. We call this certainty. We tend to hold on to something, just because we’ve gotten used to it. Making changes has a certain risk and people are afraid of this risk. But, you should know that this risk is never greater than your potential success.”

-Just a public reminder to myself...

I'm spending my Saturday fixing up my apartment and finally making it my home. This is the look I'm going for! I'm not quite sure how to actually drape the fabric so I'll be doing a lot of research today. So far the only thing I know that I need is a ladder, a staple gun, and fabric. Wish me luck!

Merci. Beacoup.
