Lately, my hair has been extremely dry. I don’t know if its the warmer weather or my frequent use of the blow dryer (I’m sure it’s the latter…), but I can’t seem to get my hair to be soft or cooperative. I started researching some natural home remedies for dry hair since I didn’t want to go out and buy a $50+ bottle of who-knows-what that would most likely not work. I found a simple recipe for an olive oil and raw egg hair mask.
The ingredients are literally 1 raw egg, beaten, mixed with about 1/4 of a cup of olive oil.
This mask is inexpensive, and I had all the ingredients in my kitchen. I will warn you, this is a little messy, but I just held my hair over the sink and applied the mixture as best as I could. All you have to do is let it sit for 30 minutes (it will get crunchy as it dries), then shampoo and condition your hair as normal. I am happily surprised by the results. I let my hair dry naturally, and my hair was immediately softer and brighter than before.
Just an FYI, I have done this mask twice since I created this post (1x per week), and I will tell anyone who will listen how effective it is. My hair is soft, cooperative, and looks healthy! Please try it and let me know what you think!
