Mayonnaise Is The Secret To Softer Hair?

EmbedPhotography by Mark Iantosca.
It's a common misconception that going natural will save you a ton of money. You'd think cutting back on those weekly visits to the salon would save you a good chunk of change, right? Well, that doesn't end up being the case for some women. Natural hair requires a lot of maintenance and overall care, so stocking up and testing out the (sometimes very expensive) products can put a pretty big dent in your wallet.
The ladies over at xoVain prove that embracing your textured tresses doesn't have to drive you into debt. They came up with an inexpensive way to make your own deep conditioner. The best part? The six-ingredient DIY consists of common foods like mayonnaise, honey, and bananas that are rich in antioxidants, nutrients, protein, and more. Basically, all of the beneficial elements we look for in a moisture-locking treatment.
Head over to xoVain for the step-by-step guide to this easy-to-make deep conditioner. (xoVain)
