Mayonnaise Hair Mask for Shiny, Soft, Hair

Mayonnaise consists of eggs, oil and vinegar—all of which are good for your hair. Add olive oil to the mix and you have a hair mask that will help calm frizz and restore moisture to your hair. While the vinegar in the mayonnaise works to lift residue and increases shine, the mixture of oils conditions your scalp, and seals the cuticle layer of each hair strand. This recipe also includes adding Banana. Bananas contain potassium, which helps soften dry hair cuticles, making your hair look smoother and silkier.
Mayonnaise Hair Mask
  • 3 tbsp of mayo
  • 1  peeled banana
  • 5-6 tbsp. base oil of your choice (select one or a combination): olive oil, jojoba oil, grapeseed or coconut oil
Oils Benefits:
  • 1 tbsp. coconut oil – reduces oiliness
  • 2 tbsp.  olive oil – tames frizz and softens the hair
  • 2 tbsp. grapeseed oil – moisturizes
  • 8 drops of jojoba oil – moisturizes and adds shine

 Step 1
Add all ingredients to a blender (you can also use a hand mixer or simply mix by hand). Make sure the mixture is completely pureed without chunks of banana. Chunks of banana are VERY hard to get out of your hair, you've been warned.

Step 2
Apply the mask to dry or damp hair. Scoop the mask out of the blender or bowl using your hands and massage it into your hair and scalp.

Step 3
Wrap your hair in plastic wrap or slip on an old shower cap after applying the mask to your hair. Leave the mask on for approximately 30-45minutes.

Step 4
Rinse the mask from your hair, then shampoo lightly. Rinse with cool water. Allow your hair to air dry.
