I just put it on day old hair. Sometimes I detangle with olive oil first before applying the mayo. I use about 4 tablespoons for my thick dense head of waist length hair. Some people just saturate it completely until its goopy, but I use just enough to coat the length (not the roots). I wash it out with conditioner after letting it sit under a shower cap for half an hour.
If you don't want to overdo it, don't leave it in longer than 30 minutes.
-2b waist-length hair (ringlets in the front and canopy, straighter under-layer)
-Dense head of med-coarse strands

Reason: I forgot to mention that I've heard different brands of mayo yield different results. I use Best Foods Real Mayo.
