DO YOU MAYO?!

So it's no secret that Joser has a thing for recommending mayonnaise as a fix-all for everything. So, we "Googled it" and found that mayo does wonders for your face and hair... DELISH!!!


We found this one on ehow.com

How to Make a Mayonnaise Face Mask

Things You’ll Need:
Mayonnaise
All natural honey
Lemon

Step 1
Place 2 tbsp. of mayonnaise in a small bowl. If you suffer from dry skin, mayonnaise is the best skin care product in your refrigerator. A mayonnaise face mask will help to exfoliate dry, dead skin cells while deeply moisturizing at the same time, leaving your skin healthy and glowing.
Step 2
Add 1/2 tbsp. of all natural honey to the mayonnaise. Honey has been used for centuries as a skin care product as well as an herbal remedy for many conditions. Honey has natural antifungal and antibacterial properties, gently cleansing your skin and clearing pores while moisturizing.
Step 3
Squeeze the juice from one half of a lemon into the mixture, approximately 1tbsp. Lemon is the perfect edition to your face mask, as it is a natural gentle astringent and will help to clear acne without over-drying your skin. Lemon will help balance combination skin and can greatly reduce the size of pores.
Step 4
Stir the mixture well. Wash your face and neck with warm water and pat dry before applying the face mask evenly. Allow the mask to set for 10 minutes before rinsing with cool water and patting dry. Use this mayonnaise face mask once a week for beautiful, moisturized skin.

Shiny Hair with Mayonnaise

Would you believe that most commercially bought cholesterol hair conditioners contain alcohol, the very thing that dries out hair? Instead, grab a cup full of mayonnaise, some plastic food wrap and throw a couple of towels in the drier on high.
Work the mayonnaise into your hair, starting by massaging it into the scalp and roots. Then draw it through to your ends until your hair is thoroughly coated. Pile the hair on top of your head. Take a couple of feet of saran wrap and wrap it around the top of your head to contain the mayo.
Take a pre-heated towel from the dryer and wrap it around your head over the saran wrap. The heat will aid with deep conditioning. After about 10 minutes, change to another heated towel and leave that on for another 10 minutes.
Remove the towel and plastic wrap and shampoo your hair as usual. Done once a month, this cholesterol treatment will keep your hair soft and shiny.
* Tip: if your hair ends are very damaged from chemical treatment, you can do this once a week. If your scalp is naturally oily, you might want to only add mayo to the hair ends for weekly treatments.

WE KNOW ALL YOU GUYS DO SOMETHING CRAZY LIKE THIS... SPILL IT!
