Egg for Hair

Egg has always been an important source of nutrition for skin and hair care. Raw eggs have been used by various shampoo and conditioner manufacturers who inculcate the benefits of eggs in their products.

However, one can create their own egg conditioner at home without the extra and unneeded harmful chemicals. This conditioner when used twice a week can turn dry and dull hair into beautiful and lustrous hair.

As eggs are rich in vitamin A, D and E, they work great with hair. Vitamin A helps in increasing the sebum production which works as a cure for dandruff. Vitamin E helps increase the absorption of oxygen and Vitamin D helps in growth of new hair. The yellow part of egg yolk makes hair glossy and shiny with fewer tangles.

The different ways in which the benefits of raw eggs can be attained are:

For Strong Hair: Make a mixture of 2 egg yolks and 3 tea spoon of castor oil. Massage the mixture on the hair and leave it for at least an hour before rinsing it off.

For Soft Hair: Massage 2 raw whipped eggs and let it dry. After shampooing, pour some vinegar and let it set in for 5 minutes. Finally wash it with clean water.

For Shiny Hair: Make a mixture of a whole egg with lemon juice. Apply it dry hair and rinse when dry.

For Moisturizing Hair: A mixture of 1 egg yolk, 1 tablespoon honey, 1 tablespoon yogurt and ½ teaspoon almond oil will smoothen hair and moisturize it.

For Conditioning Hair: Beat egg yolks until frothy. To this, add a teaspoon of baby oil and apply it over the scalp. Wash when dry. A mixture of egg yolk, yogurt and lime skin also works as a great conditioner for hair.

A third conditioner could be a mixture of 1 beaten egg yolk, ½ teaspoon olive oil and ¾ cup luke warm water. This mixture should be applied on the hair after shampooing. Rinse after 10 minutes.
