How To Use Eggs For Hair
Hair is constituted of a kind of protein called keratin, which is also found in the cells of the skin. Just like nails, hair is also primarily made up of dead tissue, but the roots of the hair need nourishment just as any other part of the body. It is essential, therefore, that you take care to supply enough proteins and minerals to the scalp and the roots of your hair in order to get thick, strong and healthy hair. Regular cleansing and conditioning of hair is an integral part of hair care, and eggs are very useful in this regard.
Eggs are a rich natural source of protein, and are thus commonly used in home remedies for maintaining hair in good health. One of the easiest ways of applying eggs on your hair is to mix an egg in a bottle of the shampoo you use regularly and shake the contents well. Store this bottle in the refrigerator and use this shampoo thrice a week to wash your hair. This prevents the shampoo from drying the moisture and the natural oil on your scalp and makes your hair look soft and glowing. Another way of using eggs to condition your hair is to beat an egg yolk till it is frothy and then add a teaspoon of baby oil to it and beat it for some more time; then, add half a cup of water to this mixture and mix the ingredients very well. Massage your hair and scalp with this mixture and leave it on for 10 minutes before rinsing your hair thoroughly with water. If you have naturally dry hair that looks dull and frizzy, eggs could just be the solution to your problem. You should separate the egg white and the yolk first, and then add a little warm water to the yolk and beat it well. Next, add the egg white to the yolk and blend it well till you obtain a consistently frothy solution. In the meantime, soak your hair in water so that it is just a little moist and then apply this solution all over your scalp and hair, starting gently with your fingers from the roots of your hair down to the tips, and let the froth get soaked completely in your hair for around 15 minutes. Following this, rinse your hair with a mild shampoo. Follow this procedure once a week in order to get smooth and silky hair.
