Smile Is there a mayo treatment that strips relaxer/perm?

I never heard of this and thought nothing could strip a relaxer/perm except cutting it all off.

My co-worker asked me this today. She is transitioning and getting impatient with the different textures. I try to help her. I have made her deep conditioner and hair oil that she loves. But I can't help her with her frustrations with transitioning. I even let her read my Cathy Howse book.

It's been a while since I've had a relaxer. Is there anything on the market or organic that can help her with converting her relaxed hair back to natural or at least frizzing it up some? I noticed that relaxed hair texture tends to weaken as it gets older and become frizzy.

You cannot reverse a relaxer. She will just have to cut it off. I'm not sure what mayo has do do with the posting. I use mayo as protein treatment and it does not revert my relaxer. When I was a teen, I was stupid enough to wash my hair with beer because my aunt told us that would revert the relaxer.

I told her that I used Mayo as a conditioner in my hair when I was a teen but I heard nothing of it stripping relaxers. She doesn't want to cut her hair. She said someone told her this. I told her that I will go to an online hair forum to get the answer and let her know.

Think of it this way...have you ever heard of a brand of mayonnaise being stronger than pipe cleaner? And if so....why would anyone eat it?

Protein might repair your hair enough to give you a little curl back, but it's not going to make your hair natural again. I know this because I use a strong protein weekly, and I'm Still finding bonelaxed ends.

I was going to say the same thing. Its kind of funny the things people believe. My grandma told me not to wash my hair so much when I was a teen because it would wash the relaxer out. My hair easily relaxes to bone straight and I never saw even a wave in my hair from washing it every few days. (now that I think about it, I shampooed waaay to often) @CurlyMoo you should focus more on helping her accept that she will have to cut her hair, if not now then do it gradually, or wait two years and then do it but either way she will have to cut her hair. Scissors are the only way.

Mayo does not strip chemicals from hair, nothing does that but a good ole fashion hair cut.

Mayo is a good deep conditioner though, I use it all the time on my natural hair. I even used it when I was relaxed.

Also tell her beer, vingear, baby pee nor horse poo will not strip chemicals.

What about unicorn tears, or virgin sweat? Have we tried that yet?

A relaxer permanently changes the protein structure of the hair. In essence there is nothing to strip because the relaxer does not remain in the hair...it is the result of the relaxer that makes the hair straight.

Tell her to get some scissors...

If mayo (or anything for that matter) could strip a relaxer, It would be very well known and highly talk about. It would not be some secret you would have to dig up at this point. There would be no need for anyone to transition... Nor, would it make much of a difference if a person was relaxed vs. natural. You could be relaxed one day and natural the next, without sacrificing even a strand of hair. No need to flat iron! Just relax for that event and wash it out the next day.


But... I'd still tell her to try it. Sometimes people have to see for themselves how silly they are being.

People use mayo and/or beer to revive natural hair after heat damage. It seems like there's some confusion with it having the same effect on hair that has been chemically straightened. And to be honest, it's not always effective for heat damaged hair either.

Ah I knew this idea had legs for a reason. So it is used to revive damaged hair. Interesting.

Thanks ladies I'm going to text her to let her know that she has to keep trimming gradually. She doesn't want to do a full cut. I told her that transitioning is a frustrating time and that she has to stick it out because it's worth it in the end.

I took down my hair to show her the length a few days ago, this may be what kick started her anxieties. Because I know when I was transitioning looking at women with long beautiful natural hair made me want to be done with it NOW!

It's my first time hearing of this. I do know that when I was kid I was told that you could wash out a perm if you use bar soap instead of shampoo. Crazy right? But no, nothing gets rid of a relaxer but a big chop (and maybe prayer and miracles). There's no way around it.

Stripping/removing a relaxer is like unfrying an egg. Once the reaction happens it can't be undone. She'll have to transition or BC like the rest of us
