My skin and hair are always dry so I’m constantly buying beauty products that have extra moisture, especially as the weather gets colder. But I also like to mix it up with a DIY to save my wallet from time to time. This moisturizing DIY hair treatment needs only 3 ingredients straight from your kitchen!
Mix together the following:
- 3 tablespoons mayonnaise
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 egg
Simply massage the mixture in to your hair (I tend to put the majority on to my ends). Pull up in to a shower cap to keep the moisture in for 30 minutes. I bought a bulk order of 100 shower caps really cheap on Amazon. Once you’re finished, you can wash out your hair in the sink, but I prefer to hop in the shower so that I can really scrub the mixture out with shampoo.
And don’t worry, the mayo smell goes away after you wash it out!
I have pretty thin hair so I put about have of the mixture on my hair and store the remaining in the fridge for another hair treatment later in the week. I’ve stored it for up to 4 days. You can also double the recipe if you have thicker hair and want to do two treatments in a week.
How many selfies can one person take in a shower cap? (actually I took about 60 🙂 )May your hair be healthy and moisturized straight from the kitchen!

Fellow dry-haired person here, my curls are always desperate for more moisture! I love this recipe, I use something similar with honey instead of mayo, but I’ll have to give this one a shot! Thanks for sharing with the Wednesday Showcase!

I was just at Ulta this morning and almost bought a hair mask but I decided there was probably a DIY method using ingredients I already have. This is perfect! I’ll have to give it a try this week.
I just did this today! I absolutely loved this idea. Thank you!

What a great recipe. I have 2 teen girls in the house and they have lots of hair. We are gonna save us some money by using your treatment. They will go through this stuff fast. Also Pinning!
This sounds like such an easy and great DIY! Thanks fo rposting it. #PoCoLO
This looks a great idea, need to try it 🙂
Thanks for sharing at the weekend blog hop..
Hi Linsay, I’ll vouch for mayonnaise being a brilliant hair mask, something I discovered when my children were small and I used it to get rid of nasty nits (it’s a messy process but it works). I’ve never thought to add anything to it, but will give it a go.

My grandma used to use olive oil in her hair & ours. I’ve never tried the combo of all three. Thanks for sharing at the party. Hope to see you again soon.
