Mercredi: The Art of Beauty

Once upon a time “fertility” was the “f” word at my house.  Because of various issues no one wants to hear about, money was spent and painful medical procedures were performed.  Bottom line: two wonderful girls. 

But lots of folks, particularly at this time of year, are taking those first tentative steps toward trying to start a family.  I know a few, as a matter of fact, and my first advice is always the same.  Why not take a chance on an easy working that will not only give your fertility a little boost but also make your hair baby soft and runway model shiny.  Seriously, why not?

The secret is eggs, those familiar fertility symbols handed down to the Christian Easter by the Teutonic Ostara.  This recipe makes a single hair mask for medium length hair.  If you have short, longer or very thick hair, adjust the amounts accordingly.

3 eggs
¼ cup mayonnaise (the real thing; not “sandwich spread” or “salad dressing”)

Whip the eggs until light and frothy with a whisk or an electric mixer.  Fold in the mayonnaise and hit this mixture again with your chosen gadget until thoroughly combined.  While you do this, concentrate on your chosen goal – fertility, pregnancy or a safe delivery.  You can also use this mixture as an attraction working since lovely hair is appealing to both sexes.

Wash your hair and dry it with a towel.  Then work the egg and mayo mixture through your hair, concentrating on the ends of longer hair, and leave it in for about five minutes.  You will need to wash your hair a second and possibly even a third time to get the mayo out; it is unfortunately stubborn.  A rinse with apple cider vinegar will boost shine and body, particularly if you let your hair dry afterward.

It’s a simple but potent piece of work and can be repeated about once a month.  Beautiful hair, a helping had to fertility and a little boost in personal confidence.  Why not?  A votre santé ~

I'm so glad that this particular "once upon a time" was 13-20 years ago, Pauline...

But mostly I'm glad we got such awesome kids out of the deal. Thank the goddess they both have your beauty AND brains!
