Stop slathering mayo into your sandwich and use it to strengthen your hair instead. The cholesterol content that makes mayo so bad for your heart is what makes it so great for the hair cuticles. Take half a cup of mayo, comb it through your hair, leave it in for 15 minutes and rinse it with cool water. Follow it up with shampoo.
