Do Mayonnaise, Eggs, and Grapeseed Oil Still Work?

Atlas Hair Care Recipes: Do Mayonnaise, Eggs, and Grapeseed Oil Still Work?

Our hair health depends on the kind of care we give to it. Without proper hair care and treatments, our hair will be weak and vulnerable to elements that can leave it looking dull and rough. So do eggs, mayonnaise, and grapeseed oil make a good hair treatment recipe?

Yes, they do! This organic trio makes a super effective hair conditioning mask that leaves your hair feeling soft, moisturized, and healthy. Making use of this kind of organic conditioning treatment is essential, especially when the weather gets hot and dry, to naturally moisturize your hair, repair any damage, prevent breakage, and even stimulate hair growth.

An egg, mayonnaise, and grapeseed oil hair mask is exceptionally rich in protein, and these kinds of protein treatments work incredibly for specific hair types.

Protein Treatments.

Beyond the conventional hair routine of washing, conditioning, deep conditioning, and protective styling, protein hair masks or treatments are also an amazing way to take care of your hair. Protein treatments supplement the pre-existent protein structures in your hair that may have been lost due to regular manipulation, product buildup, and exposure to environmental conditions. This keeps your hair strong and healthy.

Protein masks are also a wonderful remedy for hair with split ends or hair that feels dry and brittle. If you find that your coils and curls aren’t popping as they usually should be, then it’s very likely that your hair needs protein.

Here are more benefits that you stand to gain from using protein treatments:

  1. Apart from nourishing your hair by stripping off dead cells from your scalp and replenishing the protein structures, a protein mask will also soften your hair, making it so much easier to style with little to no breakage.
  2. Protein masks enable remarkable hair growth so that your hair grows longer, shinier, and super-duper voluminous.
  3. Protein masks reduce hair breakage, strengthen any limp or brittle strands of hair, and prevent split ends.
  4. Your hair has a natural balance of proteins, nutrients, and oils. A good protein treatment will ensure that this balance is maintained.

So, if your hair needs a little strength, shine, or volume boost, an egg, mayo, and grapeseed oil mask will do major wonders for your natural tresses.

The eggs organically moisturize and repair your hair so that nourishment is provided to any damaged strands.

The grapeseed oil loosens product buildup and dandruff at your scalp, seals in moisture, adds shine, and boosts hair growth.

The main ingredients in mayonnaise are egg and oil, so the mayo in the treatment gives an added combination of the hair benefits you get from the other two components. It adds shine and strengthens your hair strands from roots to ends.

Frequently Asked Question: How do you get rid of the egg smell?

When it comes to hair treatments that contain eggs, many people are often concerned about how to get rid of the egg smell after the treatment. So in this section, I’ll be giving you a few helpful tips so that you can have the great benefits of this egg-based protein treatment without having to deal with the smell of eggs in your hair afterward.

  1. When rinsing the mask out of your hair, never use hot water; this can cook the egg in your hair and make the egg smell nearly impossible to get rid of.
  2. Instead, pour some lemon juice or orange juice that’s been freshly squeezed into cold water and use this to rinse out the mask. The acidic nature of these juices will help to cleanse your scalp and mask the egg odor with a more pleasant smell.
  3. An alternative would be to use vinegar in your cold, rinsing water. Vinegar will remove the strong egg odor, help to control frizz, and add some shine to your hair.

In conclusion, if you want hair that’s stronger, shinier, fuller, and bouncier, try an egg, mayo, and grapeseed oil treatment today!
