The At-Home Hair Treatment You Should Never Try (And What to Use Instead) A.K.A. I Hate Mayonnaise

I just got back from a week-long vacation in Ireland, which is this really magical place that I like to go back to every other year or so (sidebar to the dude with the Dublin brogue behind me in my line for the port-o-potties at that concert in Williamsburg recently who didn't understand why Americans claimed to be Irish/Italian/etc. instead of just American: I understand that must be annoying for you, someone who is actually Irish, but Americans have identity issues. It's the whole old/new/newer immigration thing), except for one thing: mayonnaise. That dreaded condiment is over EVERYTHING. And to be fair, it's not just an Irish problem. Mayonnaise runs rampant pretty much through all of Europe. I don't get it.

Anyway, if you google "at home hair treatment," mayo-laced concoctions immediately pop up (because it's full of conditioning oils and protein), but I'm here to tell you that there's a better (and equally affordable) way!  Save the four bucks you would spend on a jar of mayo and get this Queen Helene Cholesterol cream instead, without spending a cent more! This stuff is INSANE—they use it on the extreme-hair-trauma cases at my salon (I've been one of them) and it works like magic and it smells awesome.

Clearly, I could never say such nice things about something as disgusting as mayonnaise. Blech.
