No matter how healthy your hair is, we all need some timely caring and pampering. Mayonnaise is said to have a lot of oils and proteins that are needed for well-hydrated mane. It is an excellent way of moisturizing your hair.
Mayonnaise treatments also help protect your hair from all the harmful effects of styling products. These products tend to dry our hair out. Mayonnaise helps replenish and repair damage.
