For this recipe you will follow by washing with baking soda water or another no poo recipe, but do not use shampoo.
Do your hair need new life, just a bit of moisturizing or is it looking dull? Are you losing hair or do you have weak hair? Then try this simple hair mask & within minutes you will love your hair. Our hair needs protein to be healthy & egg yolks provide that protein effectively for little cost. The protein in yolks strengthens hair follicles & makes the roots stronger all while nutrients give your hair life & shine. Yolks can help stop hair loss, split ends, damaged hair & scalp issues too.
Eggs: Of course fresh eggs are best but store bought will work just fine as well. Use the egg whites for a face mask.
The basic hair mask is just egg yolk & oil, but ACV & Essential oils are commonly added & work well in this mixture.
Essential oil: Essential oils like Rosemary, Tea tree, Lavender & Lemon can be great for hair & scalp. Essential oils are optional but can add a great boost to hair & scalp health as well as smelling great.
Apple cider vinegar: Do not use white vinegar stay to Apple cider vinegar or organic apple cider vinegar with the mother, or if you prefer you can use coconut water vinegar. Adding vinegar is optional but it is amazing for hair & scalp health as well as it helps hair detox.
Other options you can add: Yogurt, milk kefir, mayo, homemade mayo, kombucha tea, green tea, lemon juice or lime juice. I suggest doing the basic hair mask several times before adding extras just to see what mixture you like best, one of the great things about DIY is you can add the amounts you desire.
For short hair: To a bowl add 1 egg yolk & 1/2 to 1 tbsp oil of choice. Optional: 1/2 to 1 tbsp vinegar, 3 to 5 drops essential oil of choice.
For long hair: To a bowl add 2 or 3 yolks & 1 or 2 tbsp oil of choice. Optional: 1 to 2 tbsp vinegar 5 to 10 drops essential oil of choice.
Next: Whisk or beat with a fork until it becomes well mixed or creamy.
Add t tsp of baking soda to 6 to 8 ounces of warm/hot water mix till dissolved, wash hair with the baking soda water, scrub in just like you would shampoo, let sit a minute & rinse hair, towel dry just so it is still wet but not dripping.
Apply the egg mask with your hands making sure to saturate hair & scalp working it in with your fingers., pile hair on the top of your head, or put in a bun or whatever & wrap with a towel or use a hair cap/shower cap.
Let sit 15 to 20 minutes (I prefer 30 minutes personally). Rinse off with warm/hot water & use more warm baking soda water to wash out the egg, keep washing & rinsing until water runs clear & hair does not feel greasy.
You can do this great hair mask once or twice a week depending on your hair.
