Cottage Cheese Protein Treatment

If you've read the "About Me" page, then you'll remember that I said in my blog I would share "the good, the bad AND the ugly." Well, this probably registers somewhere along the scale between bad and ugly. It is undoubtedly the ugliest natural hair care experience I've had to date, which I guess isn't that bad considering all the homemade concoctions we can put in our hair! lol

This started because I decided to take a shortcut to another protein treatment I'd heard about. I didn't have yogurt, and I wanted to save my hubby a trip to the grocery store on the way home. So I told myself I'd use one of the 4oz containers of "smooth and creamy" (I'm not joking, that's what it says on the label) cottage cheese that I had in the fridge. I mixed it in with mayo and it appeared smoother. Great! I thought.  So I did an olive oil pre-poo, then a little while later I started applying the cottage cheese/mayo mix...oh NO! I'd forgot about the CURDS!!!


Well, three rinses later, I finally (I think...I hope!!) got all the cottage cheese curds out of my hair. Lesson learned? I think so, lol! My hair did feel stronger, but it wasn't worth the price. Next time I'll have to make sure I have yogurt on-hand! :)

Any funny homemade-concoctions-gone-wrong stories that you'd like to share? Please comment! :)


  1. I put egg in my hair and sat under a drier forgetting that heat would book the egg. Needless to say, I had to remove cooked egg from my hair. Talk about nearly impossible.

    1. Lol! That's terrible! The things we do for our hair....;)
