Although the fat in mayo is not as good for your booty as you’d like it to be, it is good for one thing: smoothing out frizzies and helping protect your hair from dryness. Put a glob on your strands and soak in it for a good half hour before washing with shampoo. Trust us: Your locks will love it.
While apple cider vinegar is considered a wonder for your skin, your body, and your digestive health, it’s not often thought of as a remedy for your hair.

Oh, nature’s favorite remedy for just about everything. Olive oil can do wonders for your hair, like making it softer, smoother, and shinier. Just heat about a half a cup of olive oil — don’t burn it — and douse your hair, wrap in a towel or bag, and leave on for at least 20 minutes. When you remove the towel, be bewildered at the gorgeousness that awaits you.
