The protein found in mayonnaise helps fill the gap and clings on to the hair strands really well. This makes your hair look fuller and gives it an excellent shine.

Make your own Mayonnaise at home: 

If you do not want to try readymade mayonnaise from the market, try making one at home. All you would need for this is some extra virgin olive oil and egg yolk.

  • In a mixing bowl, take the yolk and ½ cup of extra virgin olive oil.
  • Now mix the two together, you can use a hand blender
  • Keep mixing until you see mayonnaise being formed.
  • Now use this mixture as a hair mask as mentioned in the steps above. 


  • Always opt for full-fat mayonnaise
  • Dilute your shampoo a little before washing your hair. Mayonnaise is greasy and might take some time to clean off completely from your hair. You do not want to rip off all the good that mayonnaise has done to your hair by using too much shampoo. So dilute it a little.
  • Some people always complain that mayonnaise hair treatment makes them smell like a salad. If you feel the same, add one tsp of vanilla extract before applying it to your hair.
  • Use up the leftover mayonnaise on your face. It will leave your face looking glowing and feeling soft. The leftover can also be used to treat your Crow’s Feet or wrinkles. 

This hair treatment is not meant for people allergic to olive oil or eggs.
