Eggs for everyone

eggs hair care

For normal hair –> use the entire egg

For oily hair –> use egg whites only

For dry and brittle hair –> use egg yolks only

Use 1/2 cup of whichever egg mixture is appropriate for you and apply to clean, damp hair. If there isn’t enough egg to coat scalp and hair, use more as needed. Leave on for 20 minutes, rinse with cool water (to prevent egg from “cooking”) and shampoo hair.

Tips and tricks: Whole egg and egg yolks treatments can be applied once a month. Egg whites treatment can be applied every two weeks.

For extremely sun-damaged hair, try mixing honey with 1 to 2 Tbsp. of a protein-rich ingredient, like avocado or egg yolk, which will help replenish the keratin protein bonds that UV rays attack.
