True or False: Does Laxative Work as a Primer?
See the surprising answer to this and more baffling and bizarre beauty remedies we tested
I usually hold the mayo on my sandwiches and burgers, but I decided to give the condiment a go on my hair. Mayo is full of egg yolk and oils, which promise to moisturize extremely dry hair (like mine). After opening a jar and slathering mayo on from roots to tips, I let it sit for half an hour in a shower cap, then rinsed it out. My hair did feel much more moisturized, my ends look much less fried, and my hair looked a good deal shinier. The only downside -- the smell. For that reason alone, I'll probably stick to my usual deep conditioners to keep me (and my bathroom) from smelling like a deli, but I'd give an old-fashioned mayo hair mask another go in a pinch!
