Mayonnaise as a hair treatment

Blake Lively’s luscious locks are simply to die for!  But rather than hours spent at the salon, she credits a mayonnaise treatment for her gorgeous hair.  "My mom taught me this really great beauty tip.  She used to put oil or mayonnaise on the bottom half of her hair before she would shower. That way, when she would shampoo, the soap wouldn't strip the bottom of the hair and dry it out, making it brittle" the star has revealed.
