Have you ever tried to do at home, an egg hair mask ? The whole raw egg and raw egg yolk are natural ingredients often used in hair care products. Making an egg protein mask to beautify hair also gives the same results as those in a beauty salon. It is 100% natural, safe for your hair and economical !
Contrary to popular belief, a mask with egg is not only suitable for smooth and dry hair. It can be beneficial for all hair types, whether dry, oily, smooth, curly, frizzy or curly. It is rather the other ingredients associated with egg which determine the specific properties of the hair mask.
Before revealing 10 good recipes for egg masks, I invite you to discover the properties and virtues of the egg in hair care.
The raw egg contributes to the health of the hair due to its high sulfur content and by the presence of a wide range of vitamins and minerals.
The egg yolk is rich in lecithin. It contains minerals such as phosphorous, zinc, selenium and vitamins A, D , B12 , B8 (Biotin), B9 (folic acid) in which the components are ideal for treating damaged hair.
Egg white, in turn, is mainly composed of protein. The egg gives shine to your dull hair. It nourishes, strengthens, and makes them more flexible and shiny.
The egg is especially used in cosmetology to treat dry hair. Note, however, that it may be combined in a recipe with other ingredients which have been designed to take care of oily hair-they are not necessarily incompatible !
Mix the eggs with a little water and then vigorously whisk the two ingredients. Apply this non-greasy mask to clean, wet hair, and then gently massage the hair and scalp. Leave the natural beauty mask on for 10-15 minutes and then rinse well with cold water.
This is a classic among beauty recipes for hair care ! Mix two whole eggs with four tablespoons of olive oil. Apply this mixture on the hair, ensuring that the hair absorbs most of this hair mask. Wrap hair with a plastic wrap or cover it with a shower cap. Leave the natural mask on for ten minutes and then wash your hair with a mild neutral shampoo.
Olive oil has the property to nourish and beautify hair.
Beat the egg yolks until frothy and mix it with whole milk and rose water, if desired (this is optional but useful to change the unpleasant smell of egg and milk).

In a bowl, mix the avocado pulp with yellow to obtain a homogeneous mass. In another bowl, mix the green clay powder with a little witch hazel floral water and finally mix all natural ingredients together. If you want a more fluid mass, add lastly a hint more of witch hazel floral water.
Green clay powder will help absorb excess sebum from the scalp while the avocado will help replenish the ideal level of moisture that your hair may have lost due to a great heat (heat from styling), cold or because of certain cosmetic products containing chemicals.
The witch hazel hydrosol (also called floral water of hamamelis virginiana) is astringent and tones the oily scalp. It also has disinfectant and deodorizing properties.
Melt beeswax very carefully in microwave and mix all these 100% natural ingredients to obtain a smooth paste.
Apply this mask to jojoba oil and yogurt in the hair and leave it on twenty minutes. Rinse using a mild shampoo and use a conditioner if you wish.
Jojoba oil combats hair loss resulting from excess sebum in the follicle of the scalp. Jojoba oil contains linoleic acid which helps to accelerate cell regeneration, and keratin proteins that help nourish the scalp and strengthen the hair.
Yogurt moisturizes and nourishes the hair. Due to its acidity, yogurt naturally has an anti-dandruff effect, thus deep-cleansing the pores of the scalp.
Beeswax is involved in restoring the volume and shine of hair irritated by pollution.
Mash the banana and crush it the with egg, avocado pulp and other 3 ingredients. Apply this natural hair mask to the hair from the root to the tip.

Here is a recipe from Michel . F :
I ‘ll let you read his testimony :
« My main problem : increased hair loss. I admit that losing more hair than usual may be the result of many problems, such as stress, lack of sleep and hormonal changes. Anyway, I was looking for anything that can accelerate hair growth, as well as natural products to prevent the loss of the remaining hair. And here is my latest discovery : the mask cognac ! Wait, I ‘m not crazy … I’ve found this recipe in an old book at my parents’ house and it works ! This mask works by stimulating blood flow to the hair roots. Cognac contains alcohol which dries the hair but is certainly suited for oily hair. Anyway, olive oil is present in the recipe to compensate for the drying effect of cognac.
Take my advice: Mix all ingredients in a glass bowl. Apply to washed and wet hair, massage and cover your head with a shower cap. You’ll look ridiculous, but it does not matter ! Leave the mask on your hair as long as you can, but not less than 30 minutes and not more than 2 hours. Above all, do not leave it on all night ! Rinse with warm water and let the hair dry in the open air. I do this mask once a week and I noticed a marked improvement in my problem of hair loss. See for yourself if it suits you too! »
The mayonnaise is an oil in water emulsion of egg yolk, vegetable oil and vinegar. This very popular condiment for accompanying certain dishes can be successfully used as a hair cosmetic.

Cover the top with plastic wrap or aluminum foil. Leave on for five minutes, then take a shower to remove the mask.

Other fans of this type of hair masks recommend using vinegar. After thoroughly washing your hair pretreated with natural egg mask, rinse with a little cider vinegar.
