Protein treatment w/o egg or avocado?

We're out of eggs and avocado, and I think my hair is kind of overconditioned. Could I use something else with a lot of protein, like peanut butter? We do have mayo and olive oil.

Thank you :)

    From Struttswife's Live Curly Live Free website:

    I think you could get away with just mayo if need be, depending on your hair's tolerance. Mayo is made from eggs. The second time I did this recipe I left out the olive oil and increased the mayo to like 4 tablespoons to give it some thickness and not be so drippy. My hair seemed to get some protein out of it.
