heyy ladies:),

i've been doing some research on the web about protein treatments and I came across eggs used for a protein treatment. My first reaction was ......" this has to be a joke.... eggs on your hair?" but now i'm considering it. What's your thought on using eggs as a protein treatment? Or if you've tried it share your experience on using it as a protein treatment.

Eggs are an excellent and long time home remedy for breakage
You should give it a try. Many do the egg + mayonnaise treatment.
I'd like to mix one egg with 1/2 avocado and olive oil.
But you'll need to rinse it out of your hair with cold to lukewarm water.
The egg will cook in your hair if you rinse in hot water :eek:

I have a question about OCT, to achieve the best results are you supposed to apply to scalp or all over the hair?

Egg is a great source for protein. I usually mix it with a deep conditioner or make a mask with avocados, eggs, and oils and I have had excellent results from doing this (http://forum.blackhairplanet.com/f11/avocado-mask-results-pics-inside-2462/ ). BTW, if you are not mixing the egg with any other product or ingrident, it is not a good idea to sit under the dryer :o It will be very difficult to wash out to say the least.

1 egg, like 1/2 cup mayo or 1/2 avocado. Olive oil is just something extra. However much to suit your taste. It also depends on your hair length. If it's really long, then I'd double the recipe.

eggs are great... I mix an egg in with my favorite conditioner every now and then for extra strength, but if you want a stronger protein treatment use yogurt

I heard yogurt is awesome for softening the natural hair.

remember, whenever you work with eggs for a "deep conditioning" treatment, 30 mins. or so under the dryer, you must moisturize with a 1-3 min. conditioner, afterwards.. straight protein has a tendency to make the hair hard..

if you find your hair feels stiff after a deep conditioning with egg, just use your plain old ordinary conditioner for about 3 mins. and you're good to go.

I may have to try yogurt as a protein treatment. Do you add anything else to the yogurt?

can you still deep condition with a full head weave on your head when trying the yogurt or egg treatment?

so, would a yogurt/egg mixture be too much protein for relaxed hair?

I don't know about that...I don't think it is a good idea to put so much thick product on your hair when you have a weave, it will probably get stuck in between your hair and the weave and leave a residue...I would not do it, but maybe some other ladies in the forum have had a different experience with it.

That's the idea. :D But of course, you can use just the egg whites if you so desire. Either way, it makes for a good protein treatment.

I can never get the egg pieces out of my hair- does make it stronger though. If I ever try it again, will have to be as a prepoo- but I'm sick of food in my hair- use a real hair product for better results.

After re-bonding hair, it is believed that one has changed the basic nature of their hair. To put it simply, during hair re-bonding, the chemical bonds in your hair are broken, and put back together after some re-arrangement. Perming lotion is added to your hair during this process to soften your hair. The hair is then heated and pulled between two metal plates of a styling device after giving it a wash. A neutralizer then stabilizes and resets the hair. Hair re-bonding may use other techniques too, depending on the required results or the quality of hair. Since your hair undergoes a lot of chemical exposure in this process, be wary of what you apply to your hair after re-bonding, as the possibility of the hair getting fractured or otherwise damaged is high. To maintain re bonded hair and to retain the soft look, you might even need to go over to the same parlor for a touch up. During your visit to the parlor, do ask the expert if you can try various home remedies to make hair soft and straight.

To make your hair softer, many recommend an egg rinse, which can be done by using egg instead of a shampoo. A tea rinse or a beer rinse is also said to have good softening properties. Vinegar can help you make your hair shinier, and even baking soda, when mixed with shampoo, can help to soften your hair. However, perhaps you should concentrate on strengthening your hair first. To strengthen hair, there can hardly be anything more helpful than a good 30 minute massage with coconut oil, twice a week before going to sleep. You can

wash the oil out during the morning shower. You can also replace coconut oil with mustard or olive oil once a week, depending on what your hair needs. Rubbing Indian Gooseberry on the scalp too can help you strengthen your hair. Other than this, try not to change your shampoo brands too often, and be sure of what you are using on your hair. Experts have commented that split ends are mainly the result of strong chemicals in your shampoo, hot air from the dryer, or exposing your hair in the sun too much. Try to avoid all of these. 15 minutes of direct sunlight is more than enough to extract the life out of your hair. For split ends, the best remedy is a regular trim. Do not wear a shower cap or a regular hat too often, and try to avoid wearing a helmet directly on your scalp. A little care for your hair can help you give it a long and healthy life.

Are you rinsing with warm water? I heard that when doing an egg protein treatment you should always rinse with cold water so that the egg doesn't start to cook.

The best yogurt for hair is the full fat one, instead of low fat.

Many women on LHCF mix it with conditioner. I personally have never tried that myself. I've been doing plain egg and oil treatments once a week lately and I like it better than any protein conditioner or reconstructor I've ever used. I'm thinking about not using the conditioners anymore. This last time I added honey too and it turned out great. My hair is a lot stronger and shinier, I've noticed that my breakage has virtually stopped. My shedding has been cut waaaay down too. Some ladiesm mix their egg with conditioner b/c they say that the plain egg is too strong for their hair. There's never a smell after I do the egg treatment b/c I do that treatment first and then I shampoo and DC.

I have grown to love and master how to do an egg treatments.
Egg is the highest source of protein and also sulpur. That is why when you use it without mixing in conditioner it stinks. That is the sulpur element of it. That is why with consistent use, ppl report an increase in growth which both from the protein and the sulpur itself.

Since I've added cassia to my regimen, I haven't done an egg treatment in a looooong time. I need to do one soon, to remember why I liked them so much.

You will like it, and you will see a difference too, just make sure you use a moisturizing DC afterwards and also rinse the hair with luke warm water or cold water. Egg is my main protein treatment now apart from a keracare super reconstructor. Which is a luxury treatment for me as t is so expensive, but is very effective.
