Ever considered going that extra mile to keep your hair healthy and beauteous?! Well ‘caring for hair ’ or “Haircare” is what that displacement of yours is known as, commonly. In today’s rapidly developing world, people are so involved in their daily life that they often forget about themselves; physically and mentally as well. Diy Egg Hair Mask
Hair is an integral part of the human body and lifestyle too. Therefore, proper care of the hair is as much important as it is of any other part of our body.
The hair mask is some sort of a conditioning treatment that helps to heal up damaged hair. They most often contain natural ingredients such as oils, lipids, etc. in heavier amounts as compared to normal conditioners
How To Make a DIY Egg Hair Mask
Considering the process of the making of masks, I would rather say that there is a multitude of masks readily available in the market. Even the internet today is overflowing with millions of ideas of “How to make an egg hair mask, with most of them being DIYs. (Do it yourself). But I would rather like to say that INGREDIENTS ARE THE KEY to making an egg hair mask.‼
Look for products like jojoba, olive oil, almond oil or even avocados.
Egg yolks are a commonly used hair mask, as they are well known to provide moisture. If you are using your own egg yolk mask, be sure enough to separate the yolk from the white. This is important because the egg whites have a drying effect on the hair and skin as well. Just keep in mind that, the more natural things come into play; the better the mask will be for your hair.
You can certainly follow these steps to make one:
• Mix 2-3 eggs with few drops of lemon juice to reduce the egg-smell of the mask. (It is genuine trouble!)
• Mix properly until it becomes froth-like.
• Apply it to the hair in absolute quantity.
• After applying, cover it up.
• Leave the applied mask for about twenty minutes. Now the mixture will start to feel sticky and dry to the touch.
• Wash the mixture off with cool water. Avoid using warm water as it could cause the egg to clog the hair.
• Condition and shampoo as you usually do.
This treatment can be done at least twice a month. In addition to egg yolks, some people suggest adding other ingredients (e.g banana, honey, olive oil, etc.) it to enhance its shine and softness.
How to use a Diy egg mask?
The usage of egg hair masks depends on the individual using it for treatment. But so, to say it is conventionally used at least once a week, that too as a part of your daily washing conditioning routine.
After you squeeze out the water from your hair, apply the prepared mask to the lower portion of it. Slowly and gradually, massage the hair strands thoroughly to ensure optimum coverage of all your damaged hair. After the duration of the mask gets completed, rinse your hair properly and continue with the usual conditioning.
Also, avoid using the traditional towel for drying your hair as its tough fibres may roughen your hair follicles and it may end up getting split. Use an old top or shirt etc. to dry it. Results would be visible as clear as a crystal to you after the first mask use.
Diy Egg Masks Benefits
• So Shiny: Firstly, adding a “hair mask” to your hair care routine will protect the hair from daily-basis damage. Be it the summer winds or the embracing winters, the tenderness of the hair is restored by the hair mask.
• Presence of proteins & fats: The proteins in the egg yolk are nourishing and shine promoting. In addition to this, the fats present in the yolk enhance the hair’s softness.
Other benefits include: –
1. Shinier & softer hair
2. Added moisture
3. Reduced hair damage & hair fall
4. Less frizz (tight curls in hair)
5. Stronger hair
Disadvantages of using a Diy Egg Mask
There are several potential risks in using the egg hair masks, especially the biological ones.
Some of them are:
1. Allergic Reactions: The proteins in the yolk may react with the skin of the individual applying the mask. People having even a mild allergy to eggs are strongly not recommended to try this treatment.
2. Biological Alarms: The allergic reactions can cause severe problems such as itching, swelling and redness etc.
3. Reaction on the face: Sometimes the additive ingredients such as olive oil etc. could lead to the transfer of allergic symptoms to the face. Therefore, it is not advised for those who have an allergy of eggs.
4. Greasiness: The egg yolk may also cause the hair to be greasy.
5. The ‘Cooked-up’ risk: If the egg yolk is mistakenly exposed to high temperatures while on the hair, it could become hardened or “cooked-up”. This can make it much harder to shampoo it away.
