This is what I get for being sick…I missed this awesomeness!

You and your hair are GORGEOUS! I don’t know if I could risk the breakouts, but I’ve added this to my favorites if I’m ever so inspired ๐Ÿ™‚

Hahahahaa I totally just did this tonight (before seeing the thread) — I wonder if home hair remedies are a West Coast thing? I’ve never tried mayo (what does it do exactly? I’m going to have to try it!), but I do the eggs and olive oil mix whenever I feel my hair is getting drab, and it makes a HUGE difference. A couple of treatments in a week, and I’m good for the next few months. (although my hair does NOT stay as glossy as bella’s — super jealous of your hair girl!)

A few differences/comments/questions :

1) I use a 1:1 ratio (1 egg to 1 tbsp olive oil); I don’t know what effect changing the ratios has? Should I be upping the olive oil?

2) I throw in some lemon juice in the spring/summer to lighten my hair, and it does work, for those who want a little natural-looking lightening effect.

3) i normally just wrap my hair up in a towel for convenience, but the plastic wrap would definitely seal it in better/increase the effectiveness. Do you tie your hair up first then? or how do you get the plastic wrap around your head w/out getting it stuck to itself? (disclaimer: these might seem like obvious questions, but i have issues with saran-wrapping leftovers; you’re going to have to dumb this one down for me haha)

4) Not sure what brush you use, but I’ve found pan-greasing brushes (the ones you use when buttering cake pans) work waay better for me than my usual brushes because they don’t drip as much and it’s easier to control how much goop you’re putting where!

5) For those of you with split ends (ie. me during midterm season), adding a tablespoon of honey reseals them, at least temporarily. Don’t put that mixture on your whole head though; it’s a pain to get out (it takes me two shampoo jobs to make my hair feel unsticky), so only put it where you’re going to benefit from it!
