Wash Day! Part 3: Protein Treatment

Damaged hair? Brittle ends? If you are dealing with these problems, then it's time for a protein treatment!  This type of treatment is the perfect way to improve your hair's strength and shine/sheen.  Rather than waste money on expensive salon treatments, I use a quick, easy, and affordable homemade protein recipe monthly to help fortify my strands.  If you are sensitive to scents, this may not be the treatment for you, because it does have a strong vinegary/eggy scent.  I would also advise you to deep condition your hair immediately after this treatment, with a fragrant conditioner to get rid of the odor and moisturize your hair.  Check out my tutorial in the video below:  

Protein Treatment Recipe:
2 tablespoons Safflower Seed Oil
2 cups of Mayonnaise 
2 small/medium eggs
*I'm a bit heavy-handed with products, so if you find this quantity to be too much, just cut it in half.  Also, depending on your hair length and thickness, you may need to increase or decrease the measurements.
