Egg can have certain benefits for hair that add to the many benefits for the body.
Egg is a food that can bring a lot of benefits to our body. That's why it's the most widely consumed food in the world. However, many people are unaware of its contribution to beauty. In addition to the advantages of including eggs in our diet, they also offer us other ways to take advantage of them.
Although there are no recent scientific studies to corroborate the information that follows, there are an enormous number of people who, popularly, say that egg brings enormous benefits to hair. Nevertheless, we recommend to go to the specialist doctor to be guided about it and, above all, not to make any modification in our life habits without consulting him.
Egg as a hair treatment
As we know, eggs are rich in protein. This characteristic allows the hair follicle to be stronger and can help prevent it from breaking. For this reason, it is very common for hairdressers to recommend egg-based treatments.
Raw egg protein can act on the hair as a conditioner. After the first few applications, you may notice a change in your hair as it restores shine and leaves it silky smooth.
It's surprising, in a way, that a 100% natural product can offer so many benefits to our hair. Without a doubt, it could be a very effective way to heal it from the daily abuse and pollution it has to face every day.
How to take advantage of the benefits of the egg for your hair?
Maybe you think that to get the possible benefits of egg on your hair you need to use a very complicated or special method. However, the truth is that it's nothing extraordinary.
All you have to do is first beat an egg as if you were making an omelette or similar food. Then, take the mixture and spread it all over your hair and scalp. Once this is done, you proceed to perform a light massage.
After this, you should wait about 15 minutes for all the properties of the egg to work and give your hair a new look of shine and silkiness. With these applications, you can make it look healthier and full of vitality.
At the end of the 15 minutes, rinse with cold water. You shouldn't use hot water to remove the egg from your hair, as this could damage your hair. Hot water can cook the egg on your hair and harden it. If it happens, it will be very difficult to remove it without abusing it.
The next step to finish this home treatment for your hair is to wash it with your favorite shampoo and rinse it thoroughly. Keep in mind that you can repeat it once a week to get the best results.
With these simple steps, you can have your hair hydrated, revitalized and with all the nutrients that egg can offer. It's a very economical and easy way to get a really beautiful hair without spending a fortune.
Other uses of egg for hair
If you have mixed hair - that is, with greasy roots and dry ends - you can add natural yogurt to make it more effective. The way to use it is almost the same: you have to beat the egg and then add the yogurt.
Then, with this preparation, massage the whole hair and scalp. Then, rinse it in the same way we commented before, that is, with cold water, to obtain the expected results.
For hair with dandruff, egg can also bring some benefits, although, as we have said, there is no scientific evidence about it. First, you have to apply the egg as if it were a 'shampoo' while taking a bath. Again, remember to do this in cold water.
Next, you must apply a anti-dandruff mask, which you must prepare as follows:
Mix 3 spoonfuls of natural yogurt and 1 beaten egg yolk.
Apply to hair, leave on for 20 minutes and rinse with cold water.
In a spray bottle, mix equal parts of water and apple vinegar. Also add some essential oil of your preference.
Spray on hair and leave for 20 minutes.
Finish by washing with warm water.
Just by trying these two methods, we can realize that both the egg and other natural food products can be used to try to achieve certain benefits in our hair.
