Eggs For Hair Growth
We’ve all watched countless shampoo commercials but have rarely felt as depicted on screen – until now! This instant “omelette shampoo” will make you feel like you’re living one of those shampoo commercials and it’s because eggs provide protein to your hair. Eggs also prevent hair breakage by conditioning the scalp and can even increase hair growth. Simply mix one egg with a small amount of shampoo then apply onto your hair for five minutes and rinse well.

Olive Oil For Scalp Irritations
Olive oil is known for improving overall wellness but most are unaware that it can reduce scalp irritations, too! Raw olive oil can actually be directly applied onto your hair for a soothing effect. You just need to wrap your hair with a towel after applying olive oil and then let it soak into your hair for at least 45 minutes. Do this frequently and you’ll definitely notice a decrease in scalp irritations.

Combine 1 teaspoon of apple cider vinegar with 2 tablespoons of olive oil and 3 egg whites then rub the mixture into your hair. Keep your hair covered for about half an hour using cling wrap or a shower cap then shampoo and rinse well.
