Abuela's DIY: Deep Conditioning Hair Treatment

The other day I was looking through some old family albums, and I couldn’t help but notice how shiny my hair was when I was a little girl. That’s because mami was constantly using abuelita’s natural remedies to keep my locks bouncy and beautiful. One remedy she used was a deep conditioning treatment made from eggs and mayonnaise. Eggs contain protein and vitamins that keep hair healthy and moisturized and work with the mayo to restore shine to dry, damaged hair.

You’ll need to gather one egg, a half-cup of mayonnaise, and some gentle shampoo for this recipe. Then just follow these four easy steps:

1.     Whip together the egg and mayonnaise in a bowl.

2.     Separate hair into smaller sections and apply mixture from roots to ends, thoroughly spreading the mixture.

3.     Cover your hair in a shower cap or plastic bag and allow the treatment to sit for about 30 minutes.  Sit under a hooded dryer for even better results!

4.     Use a gentle shampoo to rinse out the treatment. Wash and style as usual.

Use this treatment every 3-4 months for healthier, shinier hair!
