Egg white for hair

Probably the first thing that comes to mind is how bad your hair will smell if you apply the mask. It does not leave a bad aroma at all, and after the treatment you have to wash your hair well so that there are no traces of egg white or yolk.

As the egg has all the essential nutrients for the development of an organism, the hair notices its use positively, since it recovers shine, repairs damaged ends and strengthens the scalp, while it de-frizzes and nourishes the hair fibers. In addition, the hydration power increases if you add honey, avocado, or some vegetable oil such as rosehip, sweet almonds, etc. to the natural mask.

Remember the following indications:

  • If you have dry hair, you will use the yolk, not the white.
  • If you have oily hair, you will only use the white one.
  • For normal hair, the whole egg is applied.

Don’t forget to try the mask on your face. Remember that eggs are rich in minerals, proteins, healthy fats, and vitamins. Here are some benefits of applying it to the face.

  • Anti-aging effect. When we are over 25 years old, wrinkles begin to show up on the skin, the signs of aging advance over the years. The egg mask serves to attenuate these signs and delay them as much as possible.
  • Hydrate. Take advantage of the yolk to hydrate dry skin, where saturated fats are concentrated. In addition, it enhances its effectiveness with avocado, olive oil or almond oil for sensitive skin.
  • Skin regeneration. Following in the same vein, antioxidant vitamins control free radicals, neutralize them and preserve the cells of the dermis in a healthy state.
