Hi everyone!

I have been on a budget so I've been trying to find some leave in treatments from household items to make my hair oh so beautiful! LOL!

Usually I just use mayo and a shower cap and leave that in for 30 min before rinsing with warm water (they say you should do cold to avoid 'cooking' the egg on your head)


I heard about the egg/olive oil/avocado treatment but I didn't have any avocado so I just mixed one egg and some olive oil.
I left it in about 25 minutes and then rinsed out. Coming out of the shower my hair seemed longer. I think it loosened my curls. They felt softer but the crown of my head looked a little frizzy. Now later on in the day my hair feels extremely soft, kind of like it does when I don't use any products, but I used all the same products I usually do so the treatment must have really softened my hair. My hair is a little frizzier than normal but it isn't terrible so I'm still wearing my hair down.
I think the mayo treatment I do works better at conditioning my hair AND making it less frizzy, but my hair has never felt softer than it does right now.

Anyone else used this or similar treatments?:happy7:
Hair Type: 3b /3a?.... medium texture, normal porosity:afro:

Other products: Paul Mitchell Sculpting Foam Mousse, LA looks Sport gel, & whatever is cheapest for a frizz serum.

    Do you soak your hair in the olive oil mix? Or do you just use a little bit? Olive oil made my hair oily and I guess the water wasn't cold enough because in the end I had to pick of white remains of the egg off my hair.. Anyways, it did leave my hair soft, after I got rid of the oiliness and eggs.
