I did a couple of times before. Since I have a dry hair with split ends, I tried to use mayonaise for hot oil. It is cheaper than going to the parlor.Lol.. I have regular hot oil and straightening every 3 months in the parlor but it makes my hair more frizzy specially the end part. so, I tried mayonaise. The result is good but i can;t tolerate the smell.. Lol. it's gross!! how many of you had tried it? are you contented with the result? I do, but I can't just stand the smell of it in my hair for few hours. hahahaha.. Just curious to hear your story.

[i]Hi Bebs, I have tried it twice when I was in College and tried to imitate my roommate who introduced this to me and the rest of the girls! I didn't like the smell and I also don't see a nice result! LOL! I rather choose coconut oil than mayonnaise! or maybe I will try again but will cover my nose!LOL![/i]

Hi Che, hahaha It does good with me. I let it stayed for 2-3 hours but I put shower cap on my head. It eliminates the smell. It will just stink at the time you put it on your hair and after that when it is already wrapped, stinks is not obvious.. it will come out again when you wash it. It will produced good result if you let it stay on your hair for 2-3 hours.

I've never tried putting mayonnaise in my hair, I don't think I would be able to stand the smell of it either, I've heard that it works, it makes your hair more softer.

I heard a lot about this also so Itried just once my friend but it did not really give a result as good as coconut milk gives me so I did not repeat anymore. I also dislike its smell on my hair. I'd rather put the mayonnaise in my potato or macaroni spread where it serves its purpose better.

hahahaha!!! good my friend, the purpose of mayonaise is for the potato and macaroni hahaha but i just tried it for curiosity. I does good with me but the smell is the problem. I used coconut too, I heat the coconut milk and then use it as hot oil? yes it does good bu very laborious.

Hi bebs! yes,I've tried it before at least twice.It had really great result,my hair was so shiny and bouncy.But as you've said the smell became my problem,as if I just eaten a macaroni salad and didn't brush my teeth LOL..So instead,I just used coconut oil then.But now,I can't afford to do that again,I find it so messy.So I just go to a parlor to have a hair spa.

Oh wow!!! hair spa.. hahaha I can't afford to do that all the time. Well, i find ways to economize hahaha.. but now I am not using mayonaise because of the smell. hahaha it's funny when we smell like macaroni. But it works with me, the only problem is the smell.

Oh yes many times i did it w/ my hair before. I heard it from a friend so I tried, but I mixed it w/ an eggyolkbecause that was the suggestions and they say it moisturize and make hair look healthier. Well I guess it's true since I noticed that there were good changes then. But yes the smell is just awful but I can tolerate it; I had it for few hours in my hair before washing and I was doing it once a week.

yes, mayonaise if good for your hair. I've tried it but i can't stand with the smell. Lol. I smell stinky Lol.. but only for few hours... after that I wash and shampoo it then conditioned and it works really good. Soft and silky. I leave it in my hair 2-3 hours, wrapped my hair with shower cap. You can try it if you want.

I tried it once years ago and never again. It made my hair very greasy and took over 1000 showers to get it out and it smelled pretty bad to boot.

hahahaha!!! what? 1,000 showers/ then you spend the whole week to wash out the mayo on your hair? hahaha kidding!! well, it does good for my hair. Maybe your hair is not dry, it is oily already. This is for dry hair treatment.. thanks for sharing your experience.

ok so maybe I exagerate just a tad. either way....my hair was very dry after so many shampoos which were, I swear...close to 1000. my point is ...don't do it...it is a bad plan. hot oil treatments can be purchased for 2.00....go with that instead...they smell better...probably work better.

I did too a couple of times and i can attest that it really works leaving my hair softer and smoother. The drawback though as what you have said is that the smell is not really good and if you were not able to rinsed it well the hair becomes too oily that i think i can fry an egg with it. LOL. I remember one friend soaking her hair with mayo overnight and went to work the following day since she wasn't able to rinsed it well she smells like a walking salad all throughout the day. and i learn from that.

Ordinary applications won't help. You need a professional dedicated solution. If this problem has come at just 20, you need to act fast lest it aggravates. Traditional home remedies won't help as they work only for maintenance purpose till the problem has not started. If problem has already started, that too at an early age, you need to be serious and act fast. Suggest you the Segals Solutions Program. It's the ultimate stop for your problem and if that doesn't work (which is unlikely), nothing else will help you ever. Just study it - the uniqueness of it and it's ingredients. Go for their complete course which will contain some special formulations, applications, supplements ans a special shampoo. I am sure you will honestly see it to be of unmatched quality and brilliance, which none in India provides. You will get an everlasting solution and thank me all you life.

why did you use maynaise. is it becasue you wanted to get benefit from its egg ingredient or other thing? if it was egg, why is it better to apply mayonaise instead of egg itself?

hahaha..yes I have tried the mayonnaise in the hair trick...It worked great as I have dry hair too. The smell bothered me as well so I wrapped up my hair and sat outside reading for a couple hours to get the full benefit of "fresh air"..lol.. Mayonnaise also works great to restore and refresh the leaves on large indoor plants as well..leaving them looking polished and hopefully feeling refreshed...Dont actually know about the second part as my plants have never actually told me how they feel and when they do.....they are outta here!!!!! But seriously, its supposed to be healthy for plants as well.

i also tried mayonaise on my hair as hot oil treatment, but the same with others who have tried i can not tolerate the smell. There's no question about the result it is proven to be effective and so much cheaper than going to a salon.. Im still considering to continue the treatment but smetimes the smell reminds me to skip...

My hairdresser used to suggest natural yoghurt for uhm... for dandruff... actually I should be posting this in the dandruff discussion. I did it once and it worked wonders - leave yoghurt on for an hour, than wash normally. :)

Mayyonnaise would be a bit too messy, wouldn't it? I hardly apply any such stuff on my hair. But in the past, I used to apply a mixture of lime juice and coconut milk on my hair. This was to get rid of dandruff and to make my hair soft, bouncy, and silky. It was a really very effective treatment. I hardly do that nowadays because all these beauty treatments bore me. I just give myself an oil massage and a head bath every day. And that keeps my hair in order. Cheers and happy Mylotting

I've never heard of using mayonaise to condition or help split ends or whatever, but what i have heard andhave done is use mayonaise to get rid of lice. the oil in the mayo smothers the lice and kills them..I know it must seem discusting and it is because of the smell but it really does work.

Yes i have tried that and it has good results. But you do need that treatment every week for a better results. If you cant tolerate the smell, better put a shower cap. I use shower cap and i also wrap towel round my head. Sure i dont like the smell too of course. It makes my hair shiny, go away dandruff, and yes its not frizzy. I will do it again this week. I enjoy this every sunday :). try it girls. its nice, and its cheap. Its highly recommended !! Happy mylotting!!

What? hahah maybe you just left if in your hair in few minutes? You can not see the effect if you will use it in like minutes. Leave it on your hair for hours.. 2-3 or more for good result. Some will leave it on their hair overnight. I just don;t how they survived with the smell.
