Washing your hair with an egg!

There can be many reasons why your hair becomes brittle, frizzy and dry. It may be due to excessive use of hair products or excessive drying with a hairdryer or over-use of the hair straighteners. It may due to a poor diet or to a combination of too much swimming and sunshine.

Did you realise that eggs can be an ideal remedy for dealing with dry hair and getting rid of frizz? Eggs are a good source of protein and they help to strengthen damaged hair by giving it moisture and shine.

Take an egg and separate the white and the yolk. Mix the yolk with a couple of tablespoons of warm water. Apply the mixture to your damp hair for approximately 15 minutes and massage your scalp from time to time. Then shampoo your hair in cool water. You can try this once or twice a week.

Alternatively, whisk 3 whole eggs with a a couple of tablespoons of olive oil and a tablespoon of honey. Place the mixture on your damp hair and scalp and cover your head with a shower cap for half an hour. Afterwards, wash hair with a mild shampoo in cool water. Try this every 7 or 8 days and before long you will soon have silky, smooth, shiny hair.
