In my other blog I shared with you about the USES OF MAYO for HOME. Here I am going to share with you the USES of MAYO for BEAUTY.

MAYO AS A CONDITIONER.  We all know that we girls are fond of making our hair looks good and if we touch it, we like it as soft as possible no tangles at all.  Here is the secret way to have that kind of a hair.

  1. Hold the mayo and massage it to your hair and scalp.  Cover your head with shower cap, wait several minutes, and shampoo.
  2. The mayonnaise will moisturize your hair and give it lustrous sheen.

  1. Gently spread the mayonnaise over your face and leave it on for 20 minutes.
  2. Then wipe it off and and rinse with cool water.
  3. Your face will feel clean and smooth.

STRENGTHEN YOUR FINGERNAILS.   To add some oomph to your fingernails, just plunge them into a bowl of mayonnaise every so often.  Keep them bathed in the mayo for about 5 minutes and then wash with warm water.

RELIEVE SUNBURN PAIN. To treat dry sunburn skin, slather mayonnaise liberally over the affected are.  Mayo will relieve the pain and moisturize the skin at the same time.

REMOVE DEAD SKIN.  Soften and remove dead skin from elbows and feet.  Rub mayonnaise over the dry, rough tissue, leave it on for 10 minutes, and wipe it away with a damp cloth.

MAYO FOR HEAD LICE.  This is the safest way to kill head lice, as many dermatologists now recommend using mayo to kill and remove head lice from kids.  Toxic prescription drugs and over-the-counter preparations, lice are becoming more resistant to such chemical treatments.  I used this with my two kids and it's really effective.

  1. First massage a liberal amount of mayo into the hair and scalp before bedtime.
  2. Cover with shower cap to maximize the effect.
  3. Shampoo in the morning and then use a fine-tooth comb to remove any remaining lice and nits.
  4. To completely eradicate the infestation, repeat this treatment in 7-10 days.


Hope this will add to your beauty regimen.
