After shampooing, pour the mixture onto your hair. If you have a spray bottle, that works even better. That way you can spray it evenly on your hair and massage it into your scalp.

What you need: A jar of mayonnaise.How to use: Prep your hair using warm water to get it nice and damp, but not soaking wet. Scoop some mayonnaise out of the jar and start rubbing it through your hair like you would with a conditioner. The amount that you are going to use really depends on the length and thickness of your hair. Wrap your head of hair with a plastic wrap, a plastic bag, or shower cap to trap the heat inside. The heat produced opens the pores and allows the amino acids and antioxidants to penetrate into the strands further. Let it stay on the hair for at least 20 minutes. You can let it sit longer depending on how damaged your hair already is. Wash the mayonnaise out. This is most easily done in the shower using a natural shampoo like Dabur Vatika Heena & Olive Shampoo. You may need to shampoo a few times before you are able to get all of the mayonnaise out. Be sure to follow our natural hair care tip and use the shampoo gently, not tangling the hair.
