I did a henna treatment 2 weeks ago…
Since i did not want to do that again anytime soon, i decided to use mayonnaise to strengthen my hair for relaxer day. I prepped my hair in 2 steps. The first was the cleansing step because i wanted to apply the mayo treatment on clean and dry hair. I did that in the morning, put my hair in a ponytail and headed out.
When i got back home, i proceeded to the second step. My hair was mostly dry at this point. All i did was mix the Mayonnaise with a blend of coconut and olive oil.
I kept it in my hair throughout the night and in the morning i rinsed it off and applied deep conditioning treatment. Since i was pressed for time, i only left it on for a few minutes while i carried on with the rest of my shower routine. I did not even mix any oils into the deep conditioner.
Now, the mayo did make my hair somewhat hard but not as hard as when i added an egg to it as seen in this post. Nonetheless, it got the job done. The deep conditioner also worked well on its own. It really softened up my hair and got rid of the mayo smell i had going on.
Once again i applied Venus leave-in conditioner and a bit of coconut oil and then put my hair in yet another ponytail. This has become my go-to style. I always apply some castor oil to my ends before going out to keep them from drying out too much. This weekend however, i gave my hair a break and rocked a loose low bun.
