DIY for Shiny Hair

DIY for Shiny Hair

Dry, chemically treated, or environmentally damaged hair calls for some extra-special love. Try this do-it-yourself treatment once a month, and you’ll be impressed by the results: shiny, thick, and luxurious hair. Adjust ingredient amount depending on hair length.

2 egg yolks
1 tablespoon walnut oil
2 drops essential oil of choice, such as lemon, jasmine, rose, or rosemary

In a small bowl, beat the egg yolks with the walnut oil and essential oils. Massage the mixture through your hair and scalp. Cover with a shower cap, plastic bag, or warm towel, then leave on up to an hour, if possible. To remove treatment, rinse well with warm water and then use a sulfate-free shampoo followed by a conditioner.

Sounds interesting, but I have color treated hair. If I rinse with the beer, will it rinse out my color?

I have thick curly hair that can be hard to tame and I found that if I wash my hair every other day, but still condition it every day so it still feels and looks fresh it works best for me.

I heard that mayonnaise works as well. . . a little too daring for me. Thanks for the info though :)

The eggs do little to nothing for my hair. Its down past my butt. Needing a way to fight the dry ends. Any ideas. baking soda and vinegar have been the best for me. But I can only wash with it once a week. Or my hair gets to oily.

Way to unnecessarily promote the egg industry...this is not a green solution at all.
