The Surprising Secret to Shiny, Strong, Beautiful Hair

Having beautiful and flowing tresses takes a little know how. Understanding what your hair needs to grow and shine naturally on its own is the key to unlocking the secret to fabulous hair.

For growth and strength, hair needs protein. In order to maintain shine and avoid tangles, your hair also needs some acidity to cleanse away product build up from shampoos, hair sprays and so on. Finally, your hair needs moisture to prevent damage and breaking.

Luckily, you can find all these hair essentials in a single product. You won’t find it in the cosmetics shop or your local beauty store. You will, however, find it in your favourite grocery store.

Using mayonnaise on your hair is a very old tradition, that some skeptics consider a wive’s tale or silly legend. In truth, mayonnaise does wonders for the strength, shine and overall condition of your hair.

Mayonnaise is made up of three key ingredients: eggs, vinegar and oil. Eggs provide your locks with a natural source of protein to grow strong and healthy. Vinegar will strip away any product build up and cleanse your scalp, keeping dandruff flakes from appearing. It’s also used effectively to prevent or combat lice problems. Oil, of-course, is a natural hydrating ingredient which will not only moisturize but also protect and seal your hair.

Not only is mayonnaise a cost-effective hair care solution, but it’s easy to apply and anyone can do it. Simply apply a thick coating to freshly cleaned, wet hair and leave on for about half an hour. Make sure you liberally coat each strand of hair all the way to the scalp for best results. Rinse your hair under warm running water until it runs clear, so you can be certain all traces of the mayonnaise are gone.
