Egg, Honey & Olive Oil Hair Mask

I made a deep conditioner for my hair today... ingredient's are as follows

2 raw egg yolks (more if your hair is longer)
3 tablespoons Olive Oil
2 tablespoons Honey

Optional (essential oil)
5 drops of lavender
5 drops of ylang ylang

The benefits of using lavender essential oil for your hair are:
  • Nourishes hair
  • Moisturizes scalp and strands
  • Helps prevent shedding hair
  • Improves blood circulation on the scalp aiding in hair growth
  • It has powerful antiseptic qualities treating dry scalp, fungi, bacteria, and other microbes 
Like Lavender, it is thought to
  • Reduce stress
  • Iincrease the thickness of the hair shaft and to grow thicker hair
  • Balancing effect on scalp oil production
  • and may help with slpit ends

Whisk all ingredient's together and apply to your hair not forgetting to massage it into your scalp as well, cover with plastic shower cap and leave for 30-40mins. Rinse off with warm water.

This treatment is extremely good for treating dry, dull and damaged hair.  It leaves your hair soft and shiny and definitely more manageable and can be used for all types of hair.

If you have any left over why not pamper yourself by applying to your face this mask, will not only soften your skin and add moisture especially if your suffer with dry skin.

The benefits

EGGS have lutein, which is immensely useful to make your skin elastic and hydrated. Egg protein has an important role to play for repairing of tissues and tightening the skin. Proteins contained in eggs, are also helpful in improving the appearance of hair and imparting strength as well as luster. Eggs provide you the adequate level of protein, which is required for growing nails and hair. Try to include eggs in your diet,as well as topically to get beautiful skin and hair, naturally!

OLIVE OIL contains four different antioxidants, which help fight off the free radicals that cause aging and skin damage.Olive oil can help restore and retain hair and skin`s health, youthfulness and beauty. Dandruff sufferers find products containing high concentrations of olive oil to be very effective.

HONEY contains vitamins, minerals, is antibacterial, acts as a humectant (attracts moisture), and has incredible healing properties it's great for sensitive scalp and skin and hair loss and smoothes the cuticle:  Your hair will feel softer and look shinier when you add honey to your recipes. Try adding some to your favorite conditioner.

Please don't throw your egg whites away, make some yummy scrambled eggs on toast or in my case with smoked salmon.
