Both the white and the yolk have a beneficial effect on the appearance and condition of the hair. If applied regularly, they soften, moisturize and increase hair volume as well as eliminate dandruff. Eggs can be used directly on hair or added to shampoos and to enrich homemade masks. Discover recipes for egg-based hair masks.
Hair growth mask
Eggs contain a lot of protein, so such a mask will help stimulate its growth. Hair consists mostly of keratin protein, which is why egg whites – on the basis of similarity of construction – help to regenerate damaged hair.
- 2 eggs,
- 2 tablespoons of olive oil or any oil.
Place the egg and oil in a bowl. First of all, whisk the eggs with a fork to blend with the oil. Wash your hair with cleansing shampoo, then apply the egg mixture to your hair. Put on a shower cap or a plastic bag and leave it like that for about 10-15 minutes. At the end, wash it down with cold water and apply a conditioner, then rinse. Leave the hair to air-dry.
Mask for damaged hair
Eggs contain large amounts of protein, sulfur and biotin, which improve the condition of hair, but they are never added to ready-made cosmetics in their pure form. The reason is their short shelf life. They can be used at home just after the mask has been prepared.
- 1 egg,
- 1 tablespoon of olive oil,
- 1/2 tablespoon of honey,
- 1/2 of the ripe avocado,
- 2 tablespoons of natural yoghurt.
Peel the avocado, separate from the stone and mash with a fork. Place all ingredients in a large bowl and mix thoroughly. If the mask is too thick, dilute with water (2 tablespoons should be enough). Then wash your hair with a cleansing shampoo and dry with a towel. Now apply the mask, put on a plastic cap or a plastic bag. Leave it on your hair for 20-30 minutes, then wash your hair with cold water and a shampoo. At the end, you can use a leave-in conditioner.
Dry hair mask
- 1 ripe banana,
- 1-2 eggs,
- 1/2 glass of milk.
Rip a banana with a fork or blend it. Mix all ingredients thoroughly in a bowl. You can either apply the mask to dry and combed hair or washed and wet, then put on a shower cap or a plastic bag. You can also wrap it with a warm towel. Leave the mask for 15-20 minutes and then wash the hair with cold water. In order to cleanse the hair thoroughly, wash gain with shampoo and apply a conditioner. Let the hair air- dry.
