Eggs aren’t just great for breakfast; the protein in an egg can also give your hair a wondrous shine. Whip up this egg shampoo in your kitchen and have the beautiful, thick and bouncy head of hair you’ve always wanted–without ever visiting a salon.
Things You’ll Need:
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp. of olive oil
- 1 tsp. of lemon juice
- 1 tsp. of castile soap
- 1/2 cup of water
- Put all the ingredients into a blender and mix until smooth. If you don’t have a blender, whisk the egg in a large bowl first, then add the other ingredients and continue to whisk until blended well.
- Dampen hair in the shower or sink with warm water. Apply a palm size amount of shampoo into your hair and work into the entire length of your hair, from root to tip, as you would with traditional shampoo. Allow the mixture to sit for 2 minutes.
- Rinse thoroughly with warm water and reapply the egg shampoo. Allow it to sit for 2 more minutes, and rinse finally with cool water.
- Store the remaining egg shampoo in a bottle. Seal the mixture with an airtight cap and keep refrigerated for up to 3 days.
Tips & Warnings
- Simplify this egg shampoo recipe by simply adding a beaten egg to your regular store-bought shampoo right before you jump in the shower. You’ll still get the wonderful results from the protein in the egg and cut your preparation considerably.
- Always keep unused shampoo in the refrigerator. After 3 days of refrigeration, though, shampoo will spoil.
