  1. 1

    Use 2 eggs for short hair and 4 eggs for longer hair. Crack each egg lightly on the edge of a large bowl. As you crack the egg, turn it upright and separate the shell in half. Keep the egg yolk in the bottom half.

  2. 2

    Pour the egg yolk back and forth between each half of the shell while holding your hands over the bowl. Allow the egg white to spill into the bowl, but keep as much of the egg yolk in the shell as possible. Continue this motion until the egg white has been emptied into the bowl.

  3. 3

    Dump the egg yolk into a separate large bowl. Repeat this process for the remaining eggs. Add about 3 tbsps. of almond or sesame oil and a dash of lemon for each egg to the bowl. Mix well with a whisk.

  4. 4

    Wash your hair with your regular shampoo and conditioner. While your hair is still damp, gently massage the egg mixture into your scalp. Cover the entire length of each strand of hair.

  5. 5

    Wrap your hair in a plastic shower cap or dry towel. Let this mixture stand on your hair for about 30 to 45 minutes. The warmth of this extra layer will allow the mixture to infiltrate each strand. Rinse the mixture from your hair and repeat as necessary.

Tips and warnings

  • Rather than throwing away the egg whites that you don't need for this recipe, use them to create an all-natural shampoo to treat all hair types. Use a blender to whip the egg whites into a stiff mixture. Massage it into your scalp. Allow the mixture to sit for 5 minutes. Use a warm, wet towel to remove it from your hair.
