Fatty Acids

Mayonnaise contains an abundance of omega-6 fatty acids, believed to promote health when consumed in moderation. These nutrients penetrate and condition hair strands to strengthen them and seal split ends, strengthening their integrity while protecting them from future breakages.

Mayonnaise’s acidity helps balance the pH levels in your scalp and hair, protecting you against fungal or bacterial infections while moisturizing hair cuticles to keep them supple and fresh. Mayonnaise hair masks are beneficial for curly and wavy locks as these textures lack the natural oils in straight locks. Not only can this type of treatment tame curly locks, but it can also define each curl effectively.

Combine one cup of mayonnaise and one egg, and apply the mixture to your hair, starting from its roots to its ends. Comb the mixture through your locks while wearing a plastic shower cap for at least 30 minutes before washing out with sulfate-free shampoo and moisturizing conditioner. Repeat this treatment weeklyalthy, hydrated locks.


Mayonnaise contains eggs and oil, rich in Vitamin E that helps strengthen and revitalize hair, as well as vinegar and lemon juice to remove toxins from the scalp, creating healthier hair with stronger roots free from lice infestation. Mayonnaise can add an incredible shine and protect your locks from premature greying with its rich fatty acids and moisturizing properties, helping improve texture and gloss.

Stores usually carry low-to-no-fat mayonnaise options that contain no oil – we found Praise 99% Fat-Free Traditional Mayonnaise, Woolworths Essentials Mayonnaise, and Coles Mayonnaise 97% Fat-Free as examples of mayonnaise with minimal or no fat content. Be wary when purchasing conventional mayonnaise as it often contains preservatives like potassium sorbate and calcium disodium EDTA that may pose potential health hazards. Opt instead for organic or non-GMO varieties for optimal results.


Mayonnaise hair masks can nourish strands and improve elasticity, leaving your locks soft and shiny. The mayonnaise’s fatty acids and proteins promote hair growth, while vinegar restores your scalp’s pH balance by controlling sebum production that could otherwise lead to dryness and damage. Hair mayonnaise contains vitamins A, D, and folate, which all work to support healthy strands. Furthermore, vinegar in hair mayonnaise helps combat issues like dandruff and dry scalp by decreasing bacteria and fungi contributing to these conditions.

To use a mayonnaise hair treatment, apply it after cleansing with damp strands, using a wide-toothed comb to distribute it evenly. Cover your head with either a shower cap or plastic wrap to trap heat while also allowing the mayonnaise to deep conditioning your strands over an hour-long treatment session – an option that should be repeated every week or two!
