I am still looking for a “natural” shampoo for my Mother, less the harmful chemicals. So, last week I washed my hair with egg. I know, a little weird, right? But it was actually very successful! This week I am trying mayonnaise. There are those that swear by it! I am just not so sure, but willing to give it a try–anything for my Mother! If you think about it, eggs and oil are good for our bodies, why not our hair? Makes sense to me! I did the research and found that many love using mayo for not only their hair but also their skin. 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 washings with my free (with a coupon) Suave, my hair finally felt clean.
Needless to say, I am not sold on 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.
