Hair Care

Egg Head

If you’re thinking that based off the title of this post it’s going to involve some weird remedy of using eggs on your head, you’re right.

Now, don’t push off the idea I understand not everyone is down with using eggs for anything other than an ingredient involving food. However, there are many benefits of using eggs for hair care.

Such as:

  • Eggs are rich in protein. Protein helps make the hair follicles stronger helping delicate strands not break so easily.
  • Helps smooth hair.
  • Helps thicken hair.
  • Natural shine in the hair.
  • Acts as a conditioner and moisturizer.
  • Helps damaged hair appear healthier.
  • Promotes hair growth.
  • Reduces frizz.
  • Prevents brittleness and breakage.

 

Who knew better hair was just a crack of an egg away?

Moisturize Hair with Egg Yolk

Egg yolk will seep into your scalp adding moisturize.

Ingredients:

  • Egg yolk
  •  3 tablespoons of honey
  • 3 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon yogurt (optional)

Steps:

  1. Determine the quantity of egg yolk based on your hair length and thickness. If you have short thin hair, that calls for one egg yolk. If you have long thin hair, then two egg yolks and so on.
  2. Thoroughly beat the egg yolks.
  3. Mix the honey and olive oil with the egg yolk, along with the optional  yogurt.
  4. Leave the mixture on your hair for and hour and a half.
  5. Rinse off with cool water.

Prevent Hair Loss and Split Ends

This method of using eggs is fairly simple and works like a charm.

Ingredients:

  • 2 eggs

Steps:

  1. For this you’re going to need two small bowls to separate the yolk from the egg whites. Take  two eggs and crack them opened in one bowl. Then, separate the yolk from the egg whites using a water bottle. If you don’t know about this trick take an empty water bottle, place the tip over the egg yolk, squeeze the bottle then release. Put the egg yolk into the other small bowl.
  2. Whisk the egg yolks together.
  3. Use a hair clip to separate the top section and bottom section of your hair.
  4. Apply the egg whites to your scalp for this will help with hair loss.
  5. Apply the egg yolks to the middle section/ends of hair to help with split ends.
  6. Leave on for 15 to 20 minutes then rinse off with cold water.

Conditioner

Ingredients:

  • Egg Yolk
  • Avocado

Steps:

  1. The amount of each ingredient is based off how much you believe is nedded to cover all of your hair. The less hair you have, the less avocado needed. The more hair you have, maybe another egg yolk and bit more avocado.
  2. Mix together the egg yolk(s) and avocado.
  3. Apply to your scalp and hair evenly.
  4. Let it sit for about 15 to 20 minutes.
  5. Use cool water to rinse off.

Strengthen Hair

Ingredients:

  • 1 egg yolk
  • 2 tablespoons of coconut oil
  • 2 tablespoons of raw honey

Steps:

  1. If the coconut oil you are using is solid then warm it up on low heat so it becomes liquid.
  2. Mix the coconut oil with 2 tablespoons of honey. Whisk until combined.
  3. Separate egg yolk from egg white.
  4. Whisk the egg yolk.
  5. Add the egg yolk to the mixture of coconut oil and honey. Whisk again until they are combined.
  6. Make sure your hair is dry and apply this mixture to your scalp and hair.
  7. Take a shower cap and place it over your head.
  8. Aim for leaving it as long as you can. The longer, the better. If you are able to leave it on over night then do so. If not try for an hour or two.
  9. Rinse off with slightly warm water.

 

Tips:

  • Don’t leave hair mask for longer than stated. For this may make it harder and almost impossible to remove.
  • Use cool water to rinse/wash away the hair mask. For if you house hot water it may begin to cook the egg making it harder to remove.
  • Always wash hair thoroughly when using eggs on your hair. Making sure all residue is gone.
  • Wear old clothes or have a towel over your shoulders for it can be very messy and the mixture may drip or spatter.
  • When applying a hair mask do it over the sink.
