Raw eggs contain a significant concentration of essential proteins and other nutrients. As a matter of fact, one egg contains 6 grams of high-quality protein and all 9 essential amino acids. Additionally, eggs contain naturally occurring vitamin D. Vitamin D is gotten naturally from the skin’s exposure to sun.
The accolades do not just stop there for eggs; this particular food is very good for the hair. Eggs promote healthy hair and nails because of the high sulphur content and wide array of vitamins and minerals that it contains. Many people find their hair growing faster after adding eggs to their diet, especially if they were previously deficient in foods containing sulphur or B12. Additionally, the high protein content in egg acts as a strengthening agent for the hair follicles and the vitamins and minerals that egg contains works like a conditioner to add volume and sheen to the hair.
Just a simple egg can work wonders on the hair strand to thicken and strengthen the hair. It works very well in conjunction with other ingredients too like natural oils, apple cider vinegar and your regular shampoo or conditioner for an extra protein boost.
How To Use Eggs For Hair
Egg is useful for oily and dry hair conditions. For oily hair use only the white of the egg with some lemon juice and apple cider vinegar as a pre-shampoo. For dry hair use the whole egg, along with other nourishing ingredients like yogurt and milk and create a deep conditioning protein treatment.
Please note that eggs should not be used with hot water—ever! There are several commercially prepared protein treatments, which include egg as the base for their treatments. You can do a protein treatment at home without the expense of buying a high priced product that uses the same egg that you have in your fridge. With egg, doing it yourself is pretty simple and easy.
