Add whisked egg into the hair, ensure it is well-massaged. Leave it on for a few minutes covering with a plastic bag then wash off with room temperature water.

The yolk will rejuvenate your hair while the white helps maintain really clean hair.

However, in the case that the smell of the egg tends to be unbearable to you, use only the yolk in hair treatment.

Eggs can also be accompanied by other natural ingredients to achieve hair conditioning.
