Home Hair Recipes: Egg & Mayo Deep Treatment

Looks and feels like pancake batter! Mainly because I went light on the mayo and did not remove the egg whites. 


2 Eggs
1/2 Cup of Mayo
2 tsp Coconut Oil
2 tsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 splash of Pure Vanilla Extract

How I mixed this concoction: 
  1. Heated Mayo in microwave for 20 seconds. Reason: The fats and oils in mayonnaise will penetrate the hair strands better when warmed. 
  2. Added eggs (for a thicker mixture just include egg yolk. I included the egg whites in my mixture-this made it pancake batter like in consistency.) 
  3. Then added coconut oil, olive oil and pure vanilla. 
  4. Mixed well. 
  5. Applied mixture to dry hair from root to tip. 
  6. Covered with plastic cap. 
  7. Sat under a hooded dryer for 20 minutes. Then wrapped with towel.
  8. Left the towel on for another 20 minutes to seal in the heat.  
  9. Rinsed mixture out with cool water to retain the oil and moisture then shampooed with Kurlee Belle Almond and Shea Butter Moisturizing Shampoo
  10. Sectioned hair into 7 sections using Aussie Moist Conditioner. 3 in front, 2 in middle and 2 in back. Detangled hair with fingers and braided each section. After letting the conditioner stand for 10 minutes I rinsed it out without separating the sections. 
  11. Applied Kurlee Belle Thirsty Curls Leave-In Conditioner and sealed hair with Coconut Oil. 
  12. Applied Kurlee Belle Kurl Defining Creme and braided hair into smaller sections (about 14 braids). 
  13. Let hair air dry. 

*Remember always use a wash out conditioner and leave-in conditioner. This reduces tangles and knots. 

Eggs are packed with protein. Great for rebuilding strands and nourishing the scalp. 

Mayo is rich in natural oils that coat each strand and fill the gaps of roughed up cuticle to repair each strand.

Coconut Oil also fills the gaps of roughed up cuticles and gives more body to hair. It seals in moisture, prevents protein loss from hair, nourishes scalp and prevents dandruff. 

Extra Virgin Olive Oil is strong enough to penetrate the cortex of the hair shaft and is a great antioxidant that contains vitamin E and vitamin A.

Pure Vanilla Extract was used to give the mixture a pleasant scent. 

After this deep treatment, my hair felt stronger and looked shiner. I love it because it is packed with protein and fatty oils which are good for dry, damaged hair. 

Will you try it?

  1. I'm up for trying anything the only stuff I use now is water olive oil and occasionally jam depending on the style. I wanted to ask do you know of any good styles for a person transitioning but doesn't want to do the "big cut" just yet. The main style I wear now is either bantu knots and sometimes I pull them out for a curly fro, or just flat iron it with low heat. Its about 2 inches natural and a little over 6 inches still relaxed but I have had no luck finding styles, outside of weave and wigs which I hate, that work with where my hair is at right now any suggestions???
