Looks pretty icky huh…really, it wasn’t that bad!
After leaving it on for about an hour with my Hair Therapy Wrap, the result was extra soft hair! I’m unable to tell you exactly how much of each item I used, but you can easily start by adding a little, then a little more if necessary. THOROUGHLY wash your hair…especially if you let it sit and almost dry.

Purpose of products according to NaturallyCurly.com and CurlyNikki.com:
Mayonnaise – restores moisture and vitality to your strands without the high cost of a salon or the damaging effect of low quality products.
Olive Oil – rich in high levels of mono-unsaturated fatty acids and vitamin E (an antioxidant, which is good for hair growth).
Honey – many use [natural] honey on their hair by adding it to their conditioner and shampoo on a daily or weekly basis to condition and moisturize hair in a natural way.
Egg – Contains a lot of protein and conditions the hair, strengthens the hair, rich in Vitamin A, D and E, and the yolk makes the hair glossy/shiny.
Aloe Vera – great pH balancer (pH of 4), and can soothe itchy off balance scalps, add much needed moisture to thirsty hair, and smooth the cuticle.
One response to “Deep conditioner concoction anybody??”
Avocado is a wonder food (fruit) that not only makes you look good from the inside, but on the out! Rich in vitamin B and E, minerals, anti-oxidants, and yummy fats, – avocados moisturize the hair and prevent breakage providing an amazing base for this hair mask. Because Avocados are so readily available in the South West, this hair treatment is perfect for Arizonans battling the hot and dry summer climate. Egg yolk are packed with protein and lectin, adding strength and moisture back into the hair. Olive Oil helps to tame frizz and add shine to the hair. I recommend using extra virgin or cold press olive oil because they have a higher nutrient content to them (compared to regular or pure olive oils).
