How to Make a Conditioning Hair Mask with Olive Oil and Eggs
Don't Break the Bank for Luscious Hair
Do you have damaged, frizzy, dry hair? Repair it now! Don't rush out and buy expensive products that offer results but don't deliver, or spend lots of money getting it conditioned at the salon. There is a way to get hair smooth, silky and strong without breaking the bank. You can do it for about a dollar a treatment.
Go to the Grocery Store
For this hair treatment, you only need two very basic ingredients. You may already have them in your kitchen, already! These two items are olive oil, and eggs.
Mix Things Up
To concoct this amazing conditioner, crack your eggs, and separate the yolks (the yellow part of the egg), from the whites. Put the egg whites in a bowl. To the bowl of egg whites, add two tablespoons of olive oil. Mix the two ingredients until they are well blended. Personally, I like to use my hand mixer so that I can get it nice and whipped. This makes it a lot easier to put on your hair.
Why It Works
This treatment is effective because of the fat and protein in the eggs, and the fatty acids in the olive oil. These components help protect the shaft of the hair, and restore protein into your locks.
Kick Back and Relax
Apply the mixture to your hair, paying special attention to the ends, and cover your head with a shower cap or a towel. Let it sit for about fifteen to twenty minutes, and rinse out. Another tip is to rinse in lukewarm, not hot, water. If you can stand it, end the rinse with cold water. This helps close the cuticle and makes it less susceptible to damage. If you find that your hair feels a bit too greasy, lightly shampoo.
