All Natural Dry Damaged Hair Treatment

I currently highlight my hair blonde (but thinking of going brown again here soon) and I have very thin hair but it is very dry and lifeless, so I do this treatment about once a week to make it soft and less brittle/straw like. 


  • Coloring bottle (you can use one from a old home color or go to a Sally's beauty supply and buy a new one)
  • Pure Honey
  • Virgin Olive Oil
  • Full Fat Mayonnaise (The Hellman's Olive Oil kind is best)
  • 1 large Egg Room Temperature 
  • Natural Coconut Oil (I use Dr. Bonner's from Whole Foods)
  • Shower Cap or plastic grocery bag
  • Towel
  • Large Hair Clip
  • Wide Tooth Comb
  • Hair Dryer or if you have a large hair dryer like what is used at salons is perfect (Optional)
  • Rubber gloves (Optional)

Get your hair ready by brushing it until smooth, I use a natural boar bristle brush because it distributes your hairs natural oils 
Then, combine 1/8 cup of olive oil, 2 tablespoons of coconut oil (may have to melt the coconut oil first in the microwave) and the egg into your bottle and shake until the egg is well blended. Add 1/4 cup of honey and shake again until well blended. If you mixture looks really thick add a splash of water or milk to thin it out just a tad, you don't want it to be so thick you can't work it in but not so thin that it drips.

Now, separate your hair into sections using your hair clip and work through the layers of your hair concentrating on the ends where your hair will be the most dry. Really use your fingers to work it it doing your best to not tangle your hair further. Be sure to brush the dry hair that may have gotten tanged while in the clip as you work throughout your layers. Your hair should easily pile on top of your head after this is entirely added.

after that is on your head, take your mayonnaise and use 1/4 cup to 1/2 cup (depending on your length/thickness) and slather that over the top of the other mixture. after you are done with that cover your hair with your shower cap or plastic bag (if you use a plastic bag secure it with your clip or a hair tie). 

Here is where your optional hair dryer comes in (heat helps the mixture penetrate the hair shaft and will make your results better). Blow dry for 10-15 mins or sit under the large hair dryer for 30 mins. 

If you aren't willing to go thru that trouble wrap your plastic covered head in a towel, I like to switch back and forth between two towels and throw them in the dryer to create heat. Let this mixture sit on your head for a minimum of 1 hour, but the longer it sits the better (If you can stand it keep it on overnight it will work miracles).

After you have finished the sit time, rinse the mixture out with COLD water (I suggest in the shower). This is very important, as hot water will literally COOK the egg on your head and make for some nasty egg chunks. After it is fully rinsed your hair is probably going to be a ratted mess and feel awful but Shampoo your hair well (maybe even twice to get the smell out) and this is where the wide tooth comb comes in. Use a LARGE amount of conditioner (I even suggest you get a cheap bottle so you don't use your good expensive stuff) to completely cover your hair, let this sit for a min and then start to comb through that rats nest starting from the bottom and working your way up. Once your hair feels smooth fully rinse out  the conditioner, run the comb throughout your hair once more after you get out and let air dry! Hope this helps your hair problems, I know its a long process but it is worth it in the end (:
