|Mayo and EVOO, baby|
Since I've been dying, frying, ironing, bleaching and otherwise trying every thing bad you can do to your hair and have it not fall out in protest, my hair is...
A wee bit dry.
Like to the point it feels brittle and a little crunchy.
|Bag it, add heat|
Why on earth would I do that when Pinterest tells me I can find everything I need in my refrigerator?
So I tried a really simple recipe. It had two ingredients.
The directions were to mix them (room temp for the mayo) and apply them to your hair.
I did...and I bagged and applied heat.
Then I waited. I was so super happy my hair would soon be as silky smooth as the girl in the pictures...
And then I rinsed (not using shampoo) as per the directions and...
My hair was so crunchy still that I couldn't run a comb through it wet. I actually added a hefty glob of biosilk to even get it THIS combed. So, like, NO conditioning happened.
Although I did smell a bit like potato salad and was a little hungry.
|Before...and after. Fail.|
Yes, NOT conditioned. I would have seen more action from a nice conditioning shampoo...and shampoo DRIES your hair.
My pal, Lisa Pietsch, advised trying some cholestorol from Walmart, which coincidentally I had (handy stuff for a lot of purposes) so that's now on my hair. She also recommended a banana masque which I'm totally going to try...once I buy some bananas.
April Mae Monterrosa advised a treatment out of a selection offered on The Lil Spa Room website. You can check them out here.
As to the Pinterest recipe? Unless you've a wild yen to smell like food, I give this one two big thumbs down.
