When I saw these videos by Head and Shoulders, I couldn’t help but giggle. [click here to see 3 funny Head & Shoulders videos] The idea of putting stuff like tomato juice, mayonnaise, avocado/guacamole in your hair is something I am very familiar with! It is something I have heard about through family and friends who have tried these “hair treatments” themselves or know someone who has.
And, I also have a confession to make… I put vinegar in my hair! LOL. I know, I know, let me explain! There was a time when I kept dying my hair every week because I was not happy with the results. I dyed it a different reddish color, hated it, dyed it again the next week because I couldn’t stand it, hated it, and finally just wanted to get rid of the red altogether! But as most of you already know, red is one of the hardest colors to get out. So I went to a friend’s hair stylist and she said that my hair was too damaged to do anything at that moment. So she told me to put VINEGAR in my hair daily for a few weeks and then go back to see her. So I did! She even uses vinegar in the salon — it’s crazy! But it’s supposed to be good for your hair.
So I did some quick research and here’s some info I found:
As for Tomato Juice, some say it restores pH balance to your hair, making it shiny, more manageable, and beautiful. One person said that it removes unusual hair odor that usually occurs with children.
Mayonnaise is said to condition severely dry hair since it has natural oils and vitamins that leaves your hair soft and shiny.
So what is the truth? Who knows, different people say different things. But Head & Shoulders makes a very good point – why go through all the trouble with messy (and sometimes smelly) hair treatments when there are great products out there that treat all of your hair problem areas. Head & Shoulders for instance fights dryness, calms itching, relieves irritation, reduces redness, controls oiliness, removes flakes and gives you beautiful hair.
Easy peasy 😉
