Eggs maybe your favorite breakfast food, but they also make an effective hair treatment. Our hair is made up of keratin and protein, and since eggs contain a large amount of protein, they can rebuild damaged hair. The proteins will make your hair stronger, and strong hair is essential for growth. Eggs are also packed with sulfur and biotin, so whether you eat them or apply the eggs as a treatment, you will have healthy and shiny hair.
Why don’t commercial hair products use eggs? There isn’t a way to preserve them in this case, so inevitably they would spoil. However, using eggs as a home treatment is quick, easy, inexpensive, and highly effective. Just make sure you are wearing old clothes and apply these treatments in the bathroom because it can get messy.
Here are 4 egg treatments for strong, sexy, shiny hair:
The raw egg itself: If your hair is normal, use the full egg. If your hair is oily, just use egg whites. If your hair is dry and brittle, just use the egg yolk. Beat one or two eggs of the mixture that’s suitable for you, then apply the mixture to your clean, dry hair, working it in from the scalp down to the ends. Leave the mixture in for 30 minutes, rinse with warm water (not hot), and shampoo rinse after that.
2. Eggs and honey: If your hair is especially dry or sun-damaged, you may want to try this sticky operation. Raw organic honey is recommended. Honey is packed with nutrients and antioxidants that feed hair follicles and encourage hair growth. Honey is also a natural humectant so it attracts moisture. Beat one egg yolk (or half a yolk, depending on how long your hair is) and approximately ½ cup of honey, and apply it to clean, damp hair, massaging it into the scalp. Let it sit for 20 minutes, then rinse with warm water. Shampoo rinse after that.
3. Eggs and olive oil: This is a perfect match for a deep moisturizer since eggs and olive oil are both high in fat. For this treatment, you will just be using egg yolks. Use 1-2 yolks, add a tablespoon of olive oil for each yolk, beat them together and massage mixture evenly into dry hair. Put on a plastic shower cap and leave the mixture on for about an hour. Rinse with warm water. Shampoo rinse after that.
4.Eggs, avocado and coconut milk: This is the ultimate deep moisturizer when you combine the richness of these fats and antioxidants. Take half an avocado and mash it up. Beat one egg yolk with the mashed avocado and add just enough coconut milk to make a paste. Apply and massage into dry hair, from the scalp down to the ends. Let it sit for 30 minutes. Rinse with warm water. Shampoo rinse after that.
Let’s ditch the harmful chemicals and bring it back to nature. Everything you need for your hair is right in your kitchen. Be good to your body and let that strong, sexy, shiny hair flow.
