We take a look at different ways you can use eggs to nourish your hair this winter.

The Oh So Wonderful Egg Itself!

Egg yolks & egg whites themselves can be used for nourishing your hair. Egg whites are helpful for oily hair as they help remove excess oil from the hair. If you have dry to normal hair, then a hair mask made up of egg yolk will be helpful since it moisturizes dry hair. Egg masks are an intensive protein hair treatment & are loaded with proteins, vitamins, and fatty acids which promote hair growth and prevent hair fall.


Honey Egg Mask

Mix egg yolk with a cup of honey. Mix well into a smooth paste & massage your hair with the mask for around half an hour. Then wash away with a mild shampoo & towel dry. This is a great hair mask which not only makes your hair smooth & lustrous but also provides it the much needed moisture.

Eggs & Yoghurt

Mix curd or yoghurt with 2 eggs & blend it well. Apply this mixture on your scalp, hair roots & hair lengths & let it dry. You may also use a shower cap. Next, wash off with a mild shampoo & cold water. This will add shine to your locks & tackle a dry & flaky scalp as well.


Banana & Eggs

Banana packs work on dry and frizzy hair & are considered good for conditioning your hair. Take two ripe bananas and two eggs & mix them well to form a paste. Further, add a few drops of lemon and 2 Vitamin E capsules. Mix them well & apply on your hair from root to tip. Wait for a minimum of half an hour & rinse off with a mild shampoo.

Eggs & Avocado:

The fats and oils in avocado help to repair dry, brittle or damaged hair. Take a small mixing bowl & mix avocado, olive oil, honey and essential oil. Apply this hair mask onto your hair & rinse out after 30 minutes. Then shampoo and condition your hair as usual.

Points To Remember While Using Eggs On Hair

  1. Always wash your hair thoroughly after using egg yolk for hair.
  2. Never wash away the egg mask with warm water else they would literally start cooking. Rather, rinse with lukewarm or cold water.
  3. Do not leave the egg hair mask on for more than stipulated time. This will just make it harder to remove.
  4. The egg mixture might drip during application, so wear appropriate clothes to prevent them from staining.
