A few months back I asked the lovely ladies from the Beauty Blog Coalition if anyone could recommend a product to help my dry, brittle, breaking hair. Aprill from GlitterGlossGarbage.com recommended a brand I wasn’t familiar with: Parnevu. As I roamed the website they had a lot of products targeted for weak, damaged hair with really affordable prices. I knew I had to get my hands on some of them!
The Parnevu Hair Mayonnaise* is a hair treatment made with a natural herbal formula incorporating olive oil, egg protein and African herbs. Now I know what you’re thinking: although these are all proven to do wonders for your hair, what about the smell? At least that was my first concern. However, this stuff smells amazing. The scent is very light, smells like cookies (at least to me it does), and doesn’t linger in your hair after rinsing it out.
The Hair Mayonnaise is supposed to strengthen roots, mend split ends, and moisturize brittle hair. It can either be used daily in small amounts before styling or as a deep conditioning treatment. I have only used it for deep conditioning treatments so far because my hair needs some extra repairing. The Hair Mayonnaise is thick and creamy but doesn’t weigh hair down or leave it feeling greasy at all.
After shampooing, I work a generous amount into my hair, massaging it into my scalp and continuing all the way to the ends. I cover my hair with a shower cap for 10 minutes while I shave my legs, then rinse it out!
I noticed a difference right away in the shower as I was rinsing the Hair Mayonnaise out. I usually experience a LOT of shedding and breakage in the shower- like, an obscene amount. However as I was rinsing, I noticed hardly any shedding.
I let my hair air dry and the results were immediately apparent. Usually my hair dries a frizzy, unruly mess. This time, my curls fell around my shoulders so beautifully with extra bounce. My hair felt and looked soft and, most importantly, healthy. On any normal day I would have applied leave-in conditioner once my hair was dry, but my hair felt perfect. There was no need to add extra product, and my hair even looked naturally styled enough to wear out!
I’m one of those girls that gets hair everywhere because my hair is always breaking. Throughout the next few days the lack of breakage was incredible. It was blowing my mind how much stronger my hair felt. I went about 3 days after the deep conditioning treatment before I had to add any leave-in conditioner at all, and even then I only needed a little on my ends. Each time I use this my hair feels better and better. The Hair Mayonnaise has also been a great scalp treatment. I struggle with occasional dandruff, which I usually use Selsun Blue for. I found using the product as a scalp treatment without the use of medicated shampoo was enough to clear my scalp of dandruff and keep it from coming back too quickly.
Needless to say, the Parnevu Hair Mayonnaise is my new holy grail conditioning treatment. The best part is, it comes in a huge jar (16 oz) and is only $7. I know I’m going to be purchasing this again and again as soon as this tub is done (which I don’t think will be for a while, considering the size).
If you have dry, damaged, weak and brittle hair, you seriously need to try this product ASAP. You can buy the Parnevu Hair Mayonnaise on their website and in select stores.
I have a couple more Parnevu products left to try. The Hair Mayonnaise definitely set the bar high so I expect they will be just as amazing. I’ll let you know!
