Natural mask for hair

    The reason I`m not posting a yummy recipe today is this gross mayonnaise that I have in my hair. I call it a mayonnaise because it apparently looks like one, and gross because, well, it is very gross :-).



   I`ve been having lots of problems with my hair lately: no volume, very thin and it falls really bad(so bad that my house if full of my hair even my cat has less hair in the house that I do).



So, I decided that it`s time to do something about this. I already tried lots of treatments that are available in the store, or online. But nothing really helped. I recalled that I used a few years ago a natural mask, and it worked amazingly for my hair. This is a very easy DIY mask.


The ingredients you need for medium hair are:
- an egg yolk
- 2 tablespoons of olive oil
- 2 tablespoons of honey
- aprox. 15 drops of liquid vitamin A

If you have longer hair, as I do, just double the ingredients.
And now all you have to do is to put this mayonnaise in your hair. I like to split up my hair in more sections, in this way it is easier to do the job, and I also make sure that I have mayonnaise everywhere. It took me about 30 to 40 minutes to spread it all over my hair.
The mask has to stay on for at least 2 hours, and then you have to wash your hair extremely well. And that`s it.




While you`re waiting for the mask to do its job, you can wrap a towel around your hair, or use a shower cap, or you can just make a bum of your hair. I recommend using a shower cap.In this way, you can easily
do other things, without leaving any drops of 'mayonnaise' after you.

I know this isn`t an easy recipe for a homemade cookie, but it definitely is a very good recipe if you have problems with your hair. Don't expect miracles from the first use. This mask should be used once a week, and you will see improvements after the second or third use. Your hair will be thicker, will have a special shine and it won`t fall so badly.

So, what do you think? Is it worth a try? What other natural masks you use for your hair?

  1. It is definitely worth a try. We spend a fortune on our hair and in the end it gets over processed. This is definitely a great idea. I've also used these types of make and they make my hair soft and silky.

  2. I had a neighbor that used mayo in her hair and she swore by it. I haven't tried it, but did I try Nioxin and it worked for me. You can see it on my blog. My hair filled by in and I was really amazed. Hope this works for you.

  6. I should try this too. My hair falls out by the handfuls. I assume it's from the over processing from color :) Good luck and hope this works for you! XO - Wendi @ H2OBungalow

  8. We use to use mayonnaise and a shower cap, its miraculous if you can deal with smelling like a potato salad. I bet the honey makes this smell better.

  10. I don't think I have ever used a natural mask on my hair. I sometimes use coconut oil or olive oil on it before washing, for nourish and shine. Your mask sounds good too.

  11. hahaha “mayonnaise”
    the only downside is that some parts of the egg always remain stuck to the roots even after washing

  15. I've always heard of using raw eggs in your hair, but never mixed with these other ingredients. If it works, ladies with problem hair should definitely try it instead of using those store bought kits.

  16. I am definately gonna try this. I live in costel area and my hair are getting very dry and curly. I have heard that egg is extremely good for hair. This hair mask of yours has come at the right time :)

  22. Add a bit of flour and you'd make a cake. Folks used to throw eggs on people's hair at school on their birthday and the egg was very difficult to remove later when you washed it ( some wouldn't even show up on their day to avoid that ).

    I use brands that have natural ingredients on their formula whenever I can.

  28. Oh I need this, I never seen anyone saying to add liquid Vitamin A into their hair mask. So this is the first! I would love to try this. Thank you for sharing!

  29. How cool is this! I've never considered using natural ingredients to make my own hair mask. I struggle with fine, thin hair and would love to have a little bounce back again.

  30. I'd love to see the before and after. I've never tried a hair mask, but I could probably use one.

  33. I have not heard of a hair mask before. I have long, thick hair, that falls out all over the place. My mom use to say for every hair that falls out. I will have to try out this mask and see if I can slow down my shedding.

  34. I use olive oil for my hair and I think I can do wonders with this mask of yours! Great idea!

  35. I will give this a try! It is brave because the thought of mayonnaise on my hair immediately makes me think of gagging. But, I am willing to try it to give my hair much needed nutrients without breaking the bank. Thank you for this inspiration!
