If we talk about protein and healthy hair, the first thing that pops up in our mind is Egg. Egg whites are rich in healthy protein that our hair and body need for proper growth. It also contains some bacteria-eating enzymes that clean our scalp. Egg yolk is rich in healthy fats which deeply nourishes our hair and adds instant shine to our hair.
Egg mask for dry hair
For Normal/Dry Hair:
Take a two eggs (with both white & yolk parts), add few drops of egg oil and beat them properly. Apply it to your full hair length starting from the roots to ends. Cover your hairs with a shower cap and leave it for at least 30-45 minutes. Some suggest to apply it for 15-20 minutes, but I believe the more it stays on your hair, the better would be the results you get.
Some people have allergies with egg oil, if you feel any irritation, replace it with olive oil. Both have the same benefits and results.
For Oily Hair:
Those who have oily hair do not need that yellow part at all. Just take the whites only and whip them properly to get a smooth texture. Apply it to your hair, from tips to roots as your hair ends are more damaged.
Some people complain about the smell of egg even after thoroughly shampooing hair. I do not have any issues with the smell, just let your hair untied for an hour and it will be gone completely. However, if you are in a hurry and need to rush somewhere soon, then you can add few drops of lemon juice to your mask to minimize the smell issue.
