Nope, we're not eating/drinking it this time. Here is some information I gathered from various sites for using eggs as a conditioner. Raw eggs are an excellent enhancement for a person's hair care regimen. Raw eggs are naturally rich in essential proteins to strengthen hair follicles. The Protein found in raw eggs is also a good source of voluminous hair. This can be a good place to begin treatment when you first notice visibly thinning hair or a receding hairline. Using eggs in your hair also leaves your hair less prone to split ends and tangles. Use raw eggs as you would use any conditioner in your hair to enjoy these benefits. Source Benefits Raw eggs contain a significant concentration of essential proteins and nutrients. Because of the high protein content, eggs can be used to strengthen hair follicles. Likewise, the nutrients work much like conditioners to add volume, shine and texture. Types Raw eggs can be used in the same fashion as a standard conditioner. Many recipes for egg-based conditioners call for added ingredients. The addition of olive oil, lemon juice and other ingredients are common. However, the application of a single egg, two eggs for thick hair, is an effective and simple method to strengthen and thicken the hair. Considerations Using eggs as a conditioning agent is simple. Simply beat an egg as if you were making a scrambled egg. Massage the scrambled egg into your hair and scalp. For longer hair, use a brush to sufficiently cover the hair and scalp. Let the egg sit in the hair for at least 15 minutes. Rinse the hair with cool or lukewarm water. Follow up by washing hair with the shampoo of your preference. Repeat the process on a weekly basis. Warning Do not use hot water to rinse the egg from your hair. Hot water can partially cook and harden the egg, making it more difficult to rinse from the hair. Because egg can be considered hard protein, you may need to moisturize afterward. Potential The use of eggs as a conditioning agent has been met with mixed results. Most people that employ this method of hair care into their standard routine report stronger, thicker and more manageable hair. In some circumstances, users have claimed to experience renewed hair growth and increased hair coverage. However, the growth of more hair has not been proven by any scientific study. Source Egg yolks are naturally rich in vitamin A, D, E and several vitamins of B-group. All of them are good for hair: vitamins A, D and E are especially useful to treat hair loss, besides, vitamin A increases sebum production which oils dry hair and prevents dandruff and thick scalp, Vitamin D provides hair growth, and vitamin E increases oxygen absorption. B-vitamins are mostly responsible for hemoglobin. They increase the amount of oxygen and improve blood circulation. Another significant part of egg yolk is fatty acids which make hair shiny and manageable. In addition, fatty acids were proven to fight dandruff, hair loss, psoriasis and flaky scalp, because they improve the skin structure. There are several types of homemade egg conditioners that would be useful for anybody. The most known one involves egg yolks (no whites) and olive or castor oil. For example, two egg yolks should be mixed with two teaspoons of oil. The conditioner has to be massaged well on hair and into scalp and left alone for a little while. Rinse the mixture off thoroughly. This conditioner provides strong beautiful silky hair. It works best on dry to normal hair. If there is a problem with dandruff, specialists recommend mixing egg yolks with baking soda and olive oil. While baking soda will exfoliate the scalp, eggs work on conditioning and healing hair strands and follicles. Split ends can also be treated by egg yolks: mix 1 teaspoon honey with 2 tablespoons of olive oil, beat in 1 egg yolk. After being massaged in (the ends should be covered with the mixture in particular), the conditioner has to be remained on the hair. Wrap the hair with shower cap for about 30 minutes. After the treatment egg mixture has to be rinsed well. Egg yolk with lemon juice and olive oil is another good treatment. However, lemons might highlight hair, so beware if you want to keep it dark. This conditioner softens hair and makes it shiny. Just because some recipes require egg yolks, it does not mean whites have to be thrown away. They are a good source of protein which is another good nutrient for hair. Protein strengthens the hair up, preventing it from breaking. An egg white can be used without any additional ingredients. It should be massaged into hair as a shampoo, left for 2-3 minutes and then rinsed well. Although for a better result one can try this: 1 cup of water should be boiled with 20 g of rosemary, after that the rosemary should be separated by a strainer. Let it cool off. Mix two egg whites into the water and use as a shampoo. The effect will be better if the mixture is covered with shower cap and left on hair for 30 minutes. One of the greatest benefits of egg conditioners, the result is seen from the very first tries. However, it is important to have a complete cycle for a month in order to keep a long lasting effect of beautiful shiny soft hair. Source How to “wash” your hair with an egg: If you do a search on Google, you can actually find several formulas for “egg shampoo.” Some contain olive or wheat germ oil; others contain lemon juice; and still others contain a variety of fruits that I don’t even want to think about in my hair. Mom modestly chalks it up to laziness, but she discovered that one whole egg – with no other ingredients added – does the trick. To create your own egg hair mask, beat one whole egg in a bowl, use a soft (hair dye) brush to brush it into your hair, following your scalp. If you have lots of hair, perhaps you may need two eggs. Massage the rest of your hair into the mixture (as if you were shampooing, but slightly messier). Place a shower cap over your head, wrap it up with a towel to prevent leakage, and let it sit for at least 15 minutes. When the allotted time is over – now this is the most important part – rinse with lukewarm water! Why lukewarm? You don’t want to fry your egg on top of your head – it will create a bigger mess, and it will take you a lot longer to get the sticky egg pieces off your head. Wash with your usual hair shampoo, and rinse till clean. Source Have expired eggs? Throw them out. Here is why.
