This is the best homemade all natural protein treatment I know. I have been using this method on and off since I was a teenager. It works like a charm and I think everyone should implement this technique into their hair care regimen.
I like to use treatments that are vegan or vegetarian. This method is vegetarian.
If an egg shampoo was good enough for our grandmothers and great grandmothers it is good enough for us. Check it out.
I like to use Grade A Extra Large Organic Eggs for my protein treatment.
To me brown eggs look more farm-like and natural.
I use two eggs to make sure I have enough to cover all of my hair.
Crack the eggs in a bowl.
Mix the eggs together using a fork.
The eggs should look like this after beating them for a few seconds.
A little at a time, pour the mixture on wet hair rubbing it in so the eggs won’t fall out. You can wash your hair using the egg mixture only or add a little shampoo and wash as usual. Depending on the length and thickness of your hair you should be able to do at least two washes using this amount.
I do not recommend letting the eggs sit for penetration purposes. The hot water and steam will cause the eggs to cook and there may be little pieces of cooked egg stuck in your hair. If this is the case, don’t worry, you can pick out the egg pieces or they will rinse away with your conditioner.
