Does anyone put mayonaise in their hair? If so, why?

Asked by Draconess25 (4448points) May 5th, 2010

A couple of my friends wanted me to ask this. I heard it makes your hair softer. But it smells funny!

I’ve never put mayonnaise in my hair, but I have used other food products. It works as a conditioner to moisturize and keep your hair shiny. A few people have said the smell kind of sticks, though.

Ive heard that its the raw eggs that help your hair, anything high in protien like that i expect would work the same. and the oil in it would make it soft – ive never used it but i can see it working. the smell would put me off using it though.

if you want a good hair mask; now and then i put babyoil in my hair overnight, plait it so that it doesnt get everywhere then give it a real good wash out in the morning it makes it lovely and soft.
my housemate is cheap and uses olive oil but again – who wants to smell like a sandwich?

Olive oil isn’t a cheap product to use. It is very good for your skin and hair. However, a better hair oil would be avocado oil or just plain mash up some avocados and keep it in your hair for a while. The closer to nature, the better for you.

Ive used it…the oils moisturize your hair. It is stinky, but I’ll wash it out with shampoo and it doesnt smell afterward.
