I applied egg on my hair once a week. This is how it transformed my mane

I tried using egg for hair to combat frizziness and oiliness. And the results were just astounding.

I’m fairly fond of trying out new home remedies which is a fact my friends are well-aware of. So, to pull my leg, they’d always suggest trying out eggs for my hair. Given that I’m a vegetarian, they thought they’d never see the day I’d give this home remedy a go.

Well, they underestimated my passion for experimenting with different solutions for my tresses. One fine day, I decided to try out an egg mask for my hair and see how it goes.

After one and a half months of regular application, I was shocked to see the result. The surprise value of what eggs had done for my mane was probably more than that of my friends who thought I’ll never use eggs in hair mask.

My hair was free of frizz and oil!
Basically, I have naturally coarse and frizzy hair. It gets really difficult to manage. So, I’d been trying various home remedies but nothing quite worked on the frizziness. Honestly, I didn’t have much hope from eggs either but the remedy did help me tame my frizzy tresses.

What’s more, I noticed less hair fall while combing! I was surprised and happy in equal measures with these results but my egg mask had more to offer. I noticed that my scalp doesn’t get as easily oily as it used to, pointing to the fact that its sebum production was under control now. 

Why did it work?
Astonished with the results, I did some research to find out the reason behind these benefits. Turns out, eggs are rich in protein and natural keratin which enables it to easily smoothen out the hair, leaving it frizz-free. What’s more, eggs contain natural fats that help in nourishing the hair and protect it from any damage. Hence, it contributes towards preventing hair fall. 

Egg whites can help in detoxifying the scalp without stripping it of the natural oil. No wonder I had oil-free hair for days!

So, the verdict is that including eggs into my haircare routine has saved me from many bad hair days.

Here’s how to make an egg mask:
While many say that you should only apply the egg yolk, I applied the egg whites as well! It worked extremely well for me. However, if you have oily hair, you should ideally apply the egg whites on your scalp but the egg yolk along the length of your hair. For those who have dry and brittle hair, it is advisable to use egg yolks more than egg whites. 

The results are going to be absolutely worth it all! Personally, I’m really happy with how nourished my hair feels and how it has become manageable.
