4. Mayonnaise, egg and coffee mask

  • 1 egg.
  • 2 tablespoons of instant coffee.

  • Wash off the following day with cold water and sulfate-free shampoo.
  • Use the mask two times a week until dandruff disappears. You can also opt to use it once a week depending on your needs.

5. Mayonnaise and strawberry mask for oily hair

Hair mask.

Is your hair too oily? Since most mayonnaise masks are very moisturizing, skip the ones above if you’re looking for oil-control.

But fortunately, you can still benefit from mayonnaise. However, you’ll need an acidic ingredient, which will be strawberries in this case. Strawberries help deeply clean your hair and unclog hair follicles.



  • Mash the strawberries or use a food processor.
  • Add the mayonnaise and mix well.
  • Apply to dry hair, going from the roots to the tips.
  • Leave on for 2o minutes.
  • Wash off with cold water.
