  • 1 tbsp avocado oil
  • 5 drops ylang-ylang oil (optional, and only for those with a dry scalp!)

  3. Cover the bun with a shower cap or a plastic bag.
  4. Leave on for at least 30 minutes, or even better, overnight.
  5. Rinse out thoroughly, and shampoo and condition as normal.
  6. Follow up with an apple cider vinegar rinse. See below.

Apple Cider Vinegar Hair Rinse:

before and after dry hair
  1. Mix 1 part apple cider vinegar with 4 parts water. You can also add some essential oils or lemon juice to mask the vinegary smell.
  2. Add mixture in squeeze bottle and spray all over hair.
  3. Finish off by rinsing with cold water. Cold water will seal in the moisture, smooth hair, and add shine.
  4. Use this mask 2-3 times a week, depending on how dry and damaged your hair is!

Benefits of Mayonnaise Hair Mask

Mayonnaise is packed full of fatty acids which penetrate deep into the hair follicles to nourish, moisturize, and repair dry, damaged hair. Mayo contains olive oil and egg yolks, and therefore, it contains a lot of protein. Regular use of the hair mask will strengthen weak, brittle hair, and also encourage faster hair growth. Castor oil is one of the best oils for hair growth, and it too, is packed full of fatty acids which encourage growth and prevent hair loss. The combination of avocado oil and essential oils seals in moisture, adds shine, and prevents frizz.
