The first reaction is “Ewwww… Really?”
But hold on, because it will worth your time.
Cosmopolitan magazine recommends this solution as being efficient, eco and cheap… and, you heard me right, Cosmopolitan, because today we’re going to talk about a clever beauty trick.
It cuts through grease…
So, if you have greasy hair… tried out different shampoos, hair masks and still dealt with the problem, or, even worse, with dandruff, this is your survivalist solution to end the story.
Shampoos strip out your hair’s natural oils, and many affect your hair’s pH balance. That’s why many cosmetics companies encourage the customers also to use a conditioner, to re- moisturize the hair.
The solution: the egg yolk shampoo
Yup, you heard that one right. A simple egg yolk will make miracles for your hair. Here are the easy steps you need to follow:
- Crack the egg and place the yolk in a small bowl.
- Add 2 tablespoons of warm water and mix the egg, while pulling out any extra pieces of white that were left behind.
- Wet your hair and paint your hair with the egg mixture with a silicone pastry brush. Saturate all your hair and leave it to sit for 15 minutes.
- Rinse your hair with cool water; you don’t want to cook the egg…
The egg yolk solution is efficient due to the lecithin, which is an emulsifier. It naturally binds water and oil. Just like in the kitchen, when you’re making mayonnaise… and you’re using the egg yolk to combine oil and lemon juice.
The vitamin A of the egg yolk will improve the hair’s ability to produce natural moisture and will stimulate the sebum production, controlling dandruff. Vitamin E will make your hair look shiny and healthy and protect it from UV rays, while vitamin D will improve the texture and luster of your hair.
So, there you go: with a little help from our friendly chicks, our hair is 100% more healthy now!
