Egg Shampoo- Variation 2
3 tablespoons of mild shampoo (baby shampoo works best)
Take a small bowl and beat the egg till it has become foamy and soft. Blend the yolk with the shampoo gently. Dampen your hair with lukewarm water, and massage half of the shampoo into your scalp and hair. This shampoo will not create a lot of suds- you don’t have to worry about that. Now, completely rinse out shampoo of your hair. Then repeat the same process with the other half of the shampoo. Remember, the second time you shampoo don’t do it for more than 60 seconds. Rinse well with luke warm water.
- If you find that the smell of eggs is too overwhelming, use some essential oil in your shampoo- lavender oil or vanilla essence works amazingly well.
- Make sure that you never wash your hair with hot water when using an egg shampoo. It will make the egg smell more prominent. Wash your hair first with warm then cold water.
- You could follow this up with a good egg conditioner, if your hair is really damaged. There are some really good egg hair masks and egg conditioner recipes you could try out, as well.
So after reading this article, I’m sure you’ll try this great homemade recipe for an egg shampoo that will add instant shine to hair. Stay beautiful and shine always!
