Mayonnaise can turn your hair silkier, softer and shiny because it contains eggs, vinegar and oil which can lock all the moisture in your hair as well as hydrating it.
As a dead skin remover: To remove dead skin at the elbows and feet, rub some mayonnaise, leave it to soak in for 5-10 minutes and then wipe with a damp cloth.
As a facial product: For a soft skin on the face, apply some over your face, spread it uniformly and leave it on for 20 minutes then wipe off and rinse your face.
As a nail strengthener: For cute cuticles and preventing cracked or bruised fingernails, dip them into some mayonnaise for a little while, then rinse.
As a head lice treatment: Lice are pests, any treatment that can get rid of the little itchy buggers is a help. Mayonnaise being oily and thick drowns moving lice.
Apply mayo on the hair, coat it well and then cover it with a shower cap or plastic wrap. Keep this mixture on for 8 hours, and then take a lot of shampoo showers to get the dead lice and mayo out.
