What’s a good product (or maybe “home remedy”) for doing an intense conditioning treatment for your hair?

Question by jsand: What’s a good product (or maybe “home remedy”) for doing an intense conditioning treatment for your hair?
I did a stupid thing a coupld weeks ago, by bleaching my hair. My hair is now, of course, VERY dry. I just had a couple inches cut off the ends, so that’s help a little. But when I wash my hair in the shower, my hair feels so gross — almost sticky — because it’s just been totally stripped. Believe me — I will never bleach my hair again!!!

I have very dry course thick hair, and I color on top of it. I have tried every over the counter/beauty supply conditioner there is…..and my Grammy told me what to do:

Take a 1/2 to 3/4 cup mayonaisse (depending on the length and thickness of your hair) and rub it into clean damp hair. Wrap your head with saran wrap and either put a hot towel (one you have had in the dryer for a while) or use the hair dryer on lowest heat setting for about 30 minutes. Pull the saran wrap off and rewash your hair and condition as usual. Do this once a week for the first 4 weeks, then once a month thereafter. You will be surprised how soft and a bonus…how shiny your hair will be!!

I laughed at Grammy until I tried it. It does work!!

  1. I’ve heard placenta treatments work very well, that or I’ve always liked Three Minute Miracle by Aussie. Feels great, works wonders and is for sure priced right.
    If these don’t help you may want to go to a salon…you might have done enough ‘home or do it yourself’ treatments for awhile. Let a profesional take care of it for now as you’ve said you’ve learned your lesson =)
