Egg Hair Mask

How to Make a Homemade Egg Hair Mask
Ingredients:
·         1 egg (for especially long or thick hair, use 2 eggs)
·         1 cup milk (for shoulder-length hair, use 1/4 or 1/2 cup)
·         1 squeeze of lemon
·         2 tsps to 2 tbsps of olive oil

1.      First, separate the egg white and yolk depending on your hair type. For oily hair, you will only use egg whites for this recipe; for dry hair, use only the egg yolk. For normal hair, use the whole egg. Place whichever part of the egg you are using in a clean bowl, and dispose of the rest how you will (maybe as part of a tasty omelette).
2.      Beat the egg. For steps 2-4, I recommend mixing the mask by whisking with an egg beater.
3.      Add the milk and olive oil to the gooey egg mixture, and mix well.
4.      Add a squeeze of a lemon to the mixture - this will give your scalp a refreshing feel. Mix well.
5.      Massage the mixture into scalp, working from the roots to the hair ends, and let it sit for at least 15 minutes. Make sure you stand in the shower or over a sink because this mask is really drippy. Cover your hair with a disposable plastic shower cap, as you do not want drops of egg mixture everywhere. While waiting for the mask to penetrate for 15 minutes, you can be soaking in a bath/shaving.
6.      Using lukewarm or cold water, thoroughly rinse the mixture out of your hair, making sure to tackle all areas of your scalp to get rid of egg bits.
7.      Use an organic fruit shampoo for a final cleanse.


1.  Make sure to wash your hair very, well, especially if you have really long hair. Do not use hot water to wash your hair—this will cook the eggs in the mask, and you will have cooked egg bits stuck around your hair strands. Use cold water, and rinse out as many times as necessary.
2.  After ridding your hair of the egg mixture, you can lather an amazing strawberry shampoo (or any delicious-smelling shampoo) into your hair, so that all the egg-y smells are gone.
3.  Don't over-squeeze the lemon juice. It may give you a burning sensation on your scalp. Use the ratio 1:2 of lemon juice to egg yolk.

4.  You might want to do an egg homemade hair mask at least once a month. I know, it is a bit icky, but if you are dedicated to making your hair beautiful, it is well worth it.
