Last week I talked about trying to find a “natural” shampoo for my Mother, less the harmful chemicals. I spent a week successfully shampooing my hair with egg. This week I tried mayonnaise. OK, I know, it sounds a little absurd, to say the least! But if you think about it, eggs and oil are good for our bodies, why not our hair? Makes sense, right?
After a little research, I found that there are those that love using mayo for not only their hair but also their skin. I just spent a week shampooing my hair with egg, I can do mayo! My plan was to try it for one week and then share the results with you.
It only took one washing before I was totally turned off to mayo as nature’s shampoo. I spent the rest of the day trying to wash the effects out of my hair. The mayonnaise made my hair feel heavy and greasy. Even after drying my hair, it felt like I hadn’t washed it in weeks. And, I had a difficult time getting past the smell. After several washing with my free (with a coupon) Suave, my hair finally felt clean.
Needless to say, I am not recommending mayo as an alternative to shampoo—it was not for me! I admire those of you that can. But I am not giving up! Nature has a way of providing for our needs, so stay tuned.
