If you’ve always been interested in treating your hair with the very best masks and conditioners out there, then you’re probably familiar with the fact that many household ingredients can be used in homemade hair products. The great thing about hair products made at home is that they don’t contain any damaging agents. In fact, they’re 100 percent natural. Today, we’re going to talk about the egg hair wash, its ability to decrease hair fall, and how to make your own.
Egg Hair Wash to Fight Against Hair Loss
Does It Work?
Yes, it does. Eggs are full of vitamins, proteins, and fatty acids. All of these elements contribute to the nourishment of your hair. An egg hair wash can help your hair grow faster, as well as make it stronger, so it doesn’t fall as much. Moreover, using this type of wash for your hair will contribute to the restoration of the hair’s natural oils. Your scalp will be moisturized, your hair will be smooth, and as a result, it won’t break as easily either.
Egg yolk also contains Compound Lecithin, which is a protein that reduces hair tangling and minimizes frizz, giving the impression of a much smoother and silkier hair. Not to mention the fact that hair tangling and frizz are two of the main causes of hair loss. Eggs contain vitamins A and E as well, which controls the production of sebum and protects your hair from sun damage, respectively.
How to Make an Egg Hair Wash
The great thing about an egg hair wash is that you only need one basics ingredient to make it: eggs. However, if you want to benefit from the properties of other natural ingredients as well, we advise you to add some extra things to your mix. For one use, just an egg is enough to wash shoulder-length hair. The following list contains some additional ingredients you can add (either one at a time or more):
- 1 teaspoon of honey for moisturizing purposes.
- 1 teaspoon of aloe vera juice, also for moisturizing.
- 4 drops of peppermint essential oil, to take away some of the smell of the egg.
- 1 to 2 teaspoons of lime juice, in order to add some extra shine to your hair.
- 2 teaspoons of apple cider vinegar, which also adds shine to your hair.
- 1 teaspoon of olive oil, useful for extremely dry and coarse hair.
Place the egg and any optional ingredients you may choose in a bowl and whisk everything together. Depending on how oily your hair is, you can choose to dilute the mix with 2 to 4 tablespoons of warm water. If your hair is oily, don’t add water. If you think the mix won’t be enough to wash your hair, you can add a few more eggs.
This egg hair wash can be used in two different ways, either by applying it on dry hair or by wetting the hair beforehand. You should massage the wash into your scalp and leave it on for about 10 minutes. Use lukewarm water to wash it out.
We hope today’s brief guide to making your own egg hair wash has convinced you of all the benefits of using an egg mixture to wash your hair.
