All Natural Hair Health: Reviving Hair Mask



My apologies for the delay in posting of late. Busy-ness crept into my schedule and I fell behind; but we're here with another fabulous recipe for your lovely locks, so all is forgiven, yes? Of course yes!

. . .

When I was trying to grow and repair my hair after it began falling out, this was my go-to recipe. Nothing else I tried made my hair this soft, silky and shiny, nor made it grow so quickly.

A picture of what my hair looked like a year or two ago:

 This recipe is a bit on the messier side but it's totally worth it!

Let's have a look at the recipe, shall we? Onward...! 
  

Reviving Hair Mask Recipe
 

- 2 eggs
- 2+ tbsps of oil (I used coconut oil)
- 1 c of water
- several drops of essential oil of choice (I used rosemary) 
 

Throw everything in the blender (a food processor will work, too. Or if you don't own either of those, simply melt your oil and whisk ingredients together by hand) and whizz it up.

Be sure to mix it very well. You don't want bits of egg white stuck in your hair...trust me, been there, done that.


It should look something like this:


It's very frothy and creamy, like putting liquid ice cream in your hair. It smells good enough to eat too...but I wouldn't recommend eating it. ;)


Pour mixture into a bowl, large enough for you to dip your hair into easily. And grab a clip for your hair so you can put it up after you apply the mask.


Go someplace where you can make a mess and easily clean it up. You could stand in the bathtub and do this for an easy clean up. Or go outside like I did.


Begin by dipping your hair in the mask, and slowly working it in until you cover everything. Pay special attention to your scalp and ends.


Once you've applied the mask to your hair, twist it up in a clip or shower cap and leave in for a minimum of 1 hour, or longer if you wish. Afterwards, wash your hair out in the shower using just water, or you can go ahead and give it a little shampoo.





Air dry your hair and enjoy silky smooth locks with a lustrous shine!

  1. I love it! The mix of egg (protein for strength) and coconut oil (moisturizing) and rosemary oil (stimulates the scalp) is a great blend. Do you find that adding water makes it easier to wash out?

    I never thought to add water with oil lol!

    1. Thank you! And yes, adding water makes it easier to apply and not so thick and sticky. And I haven't had any trouble with egg white pieces sticking in my hair since I've started blending it up, it comes right out.
