52 Projects is an adventure in discovery. Every week, for 52 weeks, do something. Something you’ve never done before. Something you’ve always wanted to do. Something that scares you. Something that inspires you. Something that inspires others. Something that tickles your fancy. Something that caught your eye. Something that just popped into your head. It can be big. It can be small. It can be whatever you want it to be. Find out how doing something can lead you to discover things about yourself, your world, your God. Then, come here on Sundays and share it with others. I'll write about mine here, you write about yours on your blog, then use the tool in my post to link to your something. Please feel free to jump in and participate anytime throughout the year!

Week 31: A new use for mayonnaise
First I mashed one avocado and a half cup of mayonnaise in a bowl, mixed it until it was smooth and applied it to my damp hair. It was a bit messy so if you try this at home, make sure to put a towel on the floor.
After rubbing it through my hair from top to bottom, I wrapped my head in Saran Wrap and then covered it with a towel. I let it penetrate my hair for 25 minutes.
After 25 minutes, I got in the shower and combed the mixture through my hair. I washed my hair with a mild shampoo and let it dry as usual.
I was on the fence as to whether or not this worked but I think the real proof came this weekend while we were away at a resort in Maryland. We went swimming in a heavily chlorinated pool and I was able to comb through my hair so easily. This is usually not the case. I would definitely recommend this treatment for dry/damaged hair. In fact, I want to try it once a week for a month or two to see if it makes even more of a difference.
What did you do this week?
