What comes to your mind when you think of eggs? Morning breakfast with ‘sunny side up’? Well, eggs are so much more than that and come with a range of benefits. They are rich in proteins and hence, are extremely useful in retaining the vitality of your skin and hair. They have components such as lutein and lysozyme that form the building blocks of your immunity system, hence protecting your skin and hair against these negative factors. Pretty amazing, right?
Let us look at beauty problems that can be solved using eggs.
1. Dandruff and rough hair
Yes, eggs can treat dandruff too. All you have to do is prepare an egg mask with curd and 1 tablespoon of olive oil, apply it on your hair and wear it on for 45 minutes before your shower. Repeat the process once every week and notice the change in your hair’s texture.
2. Light and dull hair
Prepare an egg mask with some lemon juice (one lemon is enough) and wear it on for half an hour before you shower. It adds a good amount of lustre and volume to your hair and makes it look shinier and bouncier more than ever. Try it!
A small tip: Make sure you don’t use hot water to clean your hair post application as it holds back the smell to your hair. Use only lukewarm water.
3. Oily hair
Take an egg, separate the yolk from the egg white. Whip the egg white until frothy and apply it on hair for half an hour before you shower. Repeat the process once every week. Your oily and damp hair will soon regain its health.
