After a long period of time when people thought that the industrially produced products were better than the homemade ones, people are slowly going back to the DIY products.

Treatments for Hair

Homemade products are being proven to be more effective than the industrially manufactured ones. This is because the industry as a whole is only interested in making money and they don’t care whether their ingredients have got side effects on the side of the consumer.

The only advantage that the industrial products have over the homemade ones is the fact that they work faster. However, their results are always short lived unlike the homemade ones whose results are more permanent.

Among all the natural products, avocados have got oil that is closest to the skin oil, hence good for the scalp.

The mild acidity in lemon will be better and gentler than those chemical laden industrial products.

The egg yolk is naturally moisturizing and is rich in proteins and fats. On the other hand, the egg white is rich in bacteria eating enzymes and is good for removing unwanted oils.

To Use: Use the whole egg for conditioning a normal hair.

Only egg white is used for treatment of oily hair and egg yolk is the only one used for moisturizing dry hair and brittle hair. Half a cup of the selected part of the egg is applied on a damp and clean hair.

If half a cup is not enough to cover the scalp, you can proceed to add more as your hair may require.

Leave for about twenty minutes and rinse with cool water. Warm water must not be used because it will cook the eggs.

After this, shampoo the hair. Whole egg or yolk only treatment can be done once a month while egg white only treatment can be done after a fortnight.

For Dull Hair
