Eggs for a beautiful and lustrous hair is the nature's gift for humans. Eggs contain all the nutrients required to create a new life, thus it can add a new life to the living part of hair inside the skin through nutrients needed for formation of new cells, and add beauty to the non-living part of hair outside the skin, through their effect on both living and non-living parts of hair.

Paying back for the nature's gift is very trivial, since eggs are very cheap and can be found in almost every house on planet earth, so enjoy the many benefits of applying eggs for your hair.

Composition of Eggs and Your Hair

Instead of listing constituents of eggs without you in mind, we will relate the benefits of these constituents to your hair.

Phospholipids (Lecithin) in Eggs:
Eggs are the richest source of lecithin. It is an essential part of the cell membranes. Involved in the cells of hair follicles, phospholipids repair damaged cell membranes and maintain their integrity helping the hair to grow normally, and keep their moisture content. Eggs are excellent moisturizing agent for hair. Lecithin is a good source of choline.

Vitamin A in Eggs:
Eggs are one of the richest sources of vitamin A. Vitamin A is required for the development and maintenance of the epithelial cells of the skin. Deficiency of vitamin A leads to dry scalp and hair.
With other constituents in eggs, vitamin A increases oil production by the scalp. For best results, vitamin A is taken with vitamins B,C,E, Choline, essential fatty acids, Ca, P and Zinc. Eggs contain generous amounts of these agents.

Fat in Eggs:
More than 1/4 of egg yolk is fat, about 1/3 of this fat is lecithin mentioned before. About %75 of fatty acids in egg yolk fat are unsaturated (essential) fatty acids. % 47 of fatty acids is Oleic acid (of Olives) which is a good moisturizer, as well as it is needed for stronger and thicker hair.

Protein in Eggs:
The best dermatologists will advice you to increase protein intake to fight hair loss. Eggs are a natural source of protein and can be ingested or used externally to promote hair growth. It can also repair the damaged hairs from chemical applications or heat.

Antioxidants in Eggs:

Egg yolk contains the yellow or orange carotenoids (xanthophylls) which gives its color, namely they are lutein and zeaxanthin. Antioxidants fight the free radical chain reactions which causes many harms to hair, including dryness.

Vitamins in Eggs:

Eggs are a rich source of vitamins, a special attention should be paid to eggs white content of vitamin B5 which controls excessive secretion of oil by the skin. High Methionine content should also be stressed because it is necessary for formation of coenzyme A which acts in the same direction.

Uses of Eggs for Hair

Eggs as a Moisturizing Agent for Hair:

Phospholipids maintain integrity of cell membranes of the hair follicle, and antioxidants prevent the formation of the plastic-like film produced through free radicals chain reactions and propels water, ensures maintenance of moisture to the hair follicles and scalp. Adding olive oil with its unique antioxidants that fight this harmful effect, makes moisturizing your hair a real fun. Just do it every week.

Eggs as a Scrub for hair:
Lecithin and fatty acid esters (triglycerides), resemble an optimal vehicle to dissolve both fat soluble and water soluble dirt. You like to add some sea salt or baking soda? go ahead.

Eggs as an Exfoliating Agent for Hair:

Vitamin A, B, Lecithin, and protein in eggs ensure a rapid turnover of scalp cells, and this clears the skin from dead cells and debris, as well as it regenerates new cells. You may add Olive oil to egg yolk to reinforce this effect. You like to add some fruits like Orange, Lemon, Avocado to egg yolk? why not?

Eggs as a Conditioner for your Hair

Adding an egg yolk to your favorite hair conditioner, gives you all the smooth and silky hair you dreamed of. Adding a bit of Olive oil to this mixture makes it incredible.

      Thanks for the information on eggs. I marked you up and I am going to try and see what it does for my hair. The stores sell so many types of conditioners that it is hard to know what is good for your hair. I always used henna and now it is hard to find it in the stores. The henna helpd to thicken my hair.
