Mayonnaise, honey, egg yolk & conditioner treatment: Homemade protein treatment for hair
Protein treatment is needed once in a while (I do mine once a month) in order to strengthen, moisturize and give a shine to your hair. Protein treatment helps to reduce hair breakage and makes the hair softer and smoother. While you can buy protein treatments from the supermarkets or salons, homemade remedies are still the cheap option.
My hair was a bit dry this time around so I decided to do a protein treatment to give it life. I used 1 egg yolk, castor oil, mayonnaise, 1 tablespoon honey and Herbal conditioner.
Mayonnaise: Mayo contains eggs and oil which is perfect for moisturizing, making the hair shaft stronger and increases hair density.
Egg yolk: Egg yolk is rich in protein, vitamins and fat which help to moisturize, make the hair softer/smooth and strengthen the hair follicles. Do make sure you use lukewarm water to rinse the hair to avoid cooking the egg in your hair.
Honey: Honey prevents loss of moisture, dandruff, hair growth, and giving your hair a shine.
Castor oil: I used castor oil in this concuation to detangle my hair while conditioning it.
- In a container add 1 egg yolk, dollop of mayonnaise, 1 tablespoon of honey, and a dollop of conditioner.
- Mix all the ingredients together.
- Apply the mixture to the hair
Cover the hair with a shower cap for 30 – 45 minutes before washing the hair using lukewarm water to avoid making scrambled egg in your hair.
