Eggs have gone from being a feared food to one that is deemed beneficial for body nourishment and hair health. The idea that eggs increase cholesterol is being left behind.
Eggs are a protein food that provides the body with healthy fats. In order to sum up, we are going to go over eggs’ nutritional benefits, which is why today, health professionals recommended freely consuming eggs once a day.
Eggs provide different vitamins like: B5, B12, A, D, and E. They also contain selenium, iron, iodine, folic acid, and choline.
Constant exposure to ultraviolet rays damages the skin on our bodies, yes. But it is easy to forget that our scalp is also a skin that suffers from the sun’s harmful effects. Furthermore, environmental contamination, chemical products in dyes, and constantly using hair driers and flat irons also cause significant damage. That’s why it’s important to find ways to restore hair health and recover its natural shine and strength.
How do eggs help hair health?
Thanks to the protein and the health fats present in eggs, they help nourish the scalp and hair follicles, achieving a healthier and fuller head of hair. This makes the new hairs stronger, more resistant, shiny and soft, preventing early breakage that only makes hair look weak and untidy.
If you’re worried by the idea that your hair will smell funny, this is not a problem. The egg is applied as a mask. Beat the egg (the yolk and the white) and rub it into the length of your hair. You should let it set for at least 15 to 20 minutes so that the egg’s properties can take effect. Then wash it off with water (cold or lukewarm water). Wash it the way you normally do.
Remember: the entire egg is preferably used for normal hair, just the yolk for dry hair, and just the white for oily hair. The white alone should be used every two weeks, while the other two options should be used once a month.
Keep in mind that increasing or over-using the recommended amount you will not achieve better results. Quite the contrary, this could be counterproductive and your hair will suffer the consequences.
