Why You Should Think Twice Before Using a Mayonnaise Mask

As part of our series, Hair-apy Sesh, we’re asking the hair industry’s most-trusted mavens to divulge their secrets about what products get lifted from their kit, their idea of the most overrated and underrated hair tricks, plus their favorite high-price-tag and drugstore buys that confidently carry them through their bustling careers.

What’s the most stolen product from your kit?

R+Co Death Valley Dry Shampoo and Dove Dry Shampoo.

What’s the most underrated hair hack or trick?

Wearing braids to bed. For girls with straight hair, they can braid their wet hair into two or three cornrows (Dutch braids/boxer braids) or even just three or four pigtails for cool beach waves in the morning. Add a sea salt spray or texture spray and use a little pomade for a piecey look.

What’s the most overrated hair hack or trick?

Mayonnaise as a hair mask. It sounds gross, and it kind of is, but I have heard from a lot of people that they’ve used this method to try and fix their dry hair issues. It may work to an extent, but I believe it’s way too heavy and creates an immense amount of oiliness at the root, which weighs down the hair.

What’s one expensive product that’s worth every penny?

The Mason Pearson Brush, because you can style and updo, and also do an entire blowout. My favorite way to use it is when I need to style the hair for a sleek pony or waves. I spray hairspray directly into the brush and that makes the hold so perfect for the style.

What’s the most underrated drugstore product?

Dove Hairsprays. People have a misconception about it—they think they ONLY need to use luxury brands for clients and on set. I love their hairsprays and dry shampoos.

If you only had time to use one product on a client, what would it be?

Definitely the OUAI Matte Pomade, which I use on almost any style, whether it’s up or down, even braiding. It provides an extra grip, and it also lets me make any wavy hair (natural or iron used) look piecey, plus it smells amazing.
