Person Cracking Eggs For An Egg Shampoo

Egg shampoo? What’s next – a mayo hair mask? Oh wait, that already exists…

Lame jokes aside, let’s admit that using natural beauty products has been successfully working for women for ages. We’re blessed with tons of ready-to-use products waiting for us at the stores, but it doesn’t mean they’re good for us. On the other hand, if you ask your mom or grandma for their best beauty tips, there’s a good chance that most of them will involve natural ingredients. I don’t know about you, but I think women in the past looked gorgeous despite the lack of expensive beauty products. They must be onto something!

In this article, I want to talk about egg shampoo and how it can help you to achieve healthier hair without chemicals.


Egg Shampoo Benefits For Hair And How To Use It


What Is An Egg Shampoo?


Egg shampoo is a natural shampoo made from whisked eggs. Since eggs are full of protein, vitamins, and oil-dissolving emulsifiers, it makes it an effective and healthy hair washing option that cleans and nourishes hair without chemicals.

What Is An Egg Shampoo For?


Egg shampoo is gentle enough to be used on any kind of hair:

However, damaged hair can benefit from egg shampoo the most – here’s why!


Benefits Of Using An Egg Shampoo For Hair


Probably the most common benefit of using egg shampoo is the revitalization of lifeless, dull, damaged hair. Egg shampoo is different from regular shampoos that can leave your hair dry and brittle (thanks to lots of chemicals that tend to harm your hair). After shampooing, many of us hope that our hair will retain a healthy, shiny appearance and in some cases, it does. However, there are many women who still experience dullness, breakage, and other problems after shampooing their hair, even when using salon-grade products. Egg shampoo, on the other hand, can give you a completely different experience.

Egg shampoo benefits come from the active ingredient, called Egg protein. The protein can help to rebuild your hair and leave your hair looking significantly healthier than it did before you shampoo. Eggs are also rich in lecithin which is a fatty acid that gives your hair shine and luster. And that’s not all! Eggs also contain a whole bunch of vitamins that are especially good for your hair:

  • Vitamin A;
  • Vitamin E;
  • Biotin;
  • Folate.

All of these nutrients can help you to achieve healthier hair and scalp, boost hair growth, improve hair elasticity and make your hair stronger. Yes, all of that with simple egg shampoo (and eating eggs every week, if you can!).


How To Make Egg Shampoo At Home


Egg shampoo has one more benefit – it’s incredibly easy to make. All you need is, well, eggs (preferably – organic). Take a bowl, crack 2-3 eggs (depending on your hair length), whisk the yolks and whites together and you’re ready to wash your hair!

If you want your egg shampoo to have more hair-healing properties, feel free to add extra ingredients like honey, aloe vera juice, a few drops of rosemary or lavender oil, even green tea! The only thing I don’t recommend adding to your egg shampoo is oil. While egg shampoo is foamy enough to produce a thick lather that washes any dirt and oil out of your hair, adding any oils to it will make it less cleansing. But it’s up to you!

How To Use Egg Shampoo To Wash Your Hair


Now, egg shampoo is easy to use, but there are a few important things to know before you use it:

  • Never use hot water when washing your hair with egg shampoo! Hot water will instantly “cook” the eggs and you will be left with scrambled eggs in your hair. Trust me, you don’t want to see or feel that situation in your hair.
  • Take your time. Egg shampoo is not your regular sulfate shampoo – the foaming action is controlled by natural amino acids instead. Therefore, it takes a little bit more effort to create a nice lather, but it’s not hard – just takes longer.

And that’s it! Egg shampoo is super simple, but it can be a real game-changer in your hair care routine, especially if your hair is weak, damaged, or falling out. Try it out yourself – there’s nothing to lose!
