Hmmm mayonnaise? In my hair? really?
WELL it contains egg yolk (packed full of protein), vinegar (restores shine) and lemon (great for cleansing) which are the main ingredients within the mayo which help to nourish the hair. This mixture is great for frizzy, brittle, damaged or dry afro hair.
If you have ran out of conditioner, and need an emergency intensive treatment after shampooing you can make the perfect batch within minutes.
You will need
1 small cup of mayonnaise
1 tbl spoon of olive oil
Shampoo your hair (it needs to be clean!)
Apply a small amount to hair, comb through for even distribution (concentrate on the ends)
Leave on for 15-20 minutes with plastic cap (for even better results go under a dryer or use a pre heated towel)
Rinse throughly with luke warm water (if you need to use shampoo use a tiny amount)
Do this every 2 weeks for extreme damage, or 1 to 2 month for regular treatment

"When I was recording, I was staying in a house with five guys and two showers. I knew there would be a shower wait everyday and with my natural cropped hair, it's mandatory that I wash it otherwise it gets stuck to my head like glue! I wanted to get something that I could literally roll out of bed without looking nuts. I watched so many Chaka Khan YouTube videos and became sort of obsessed with her during the process. I went to my stylist and said 'Give me the fro.' I walk differently now, sing differently; This hair has spirit and soul." (Refinery 29)
