Aside from making tasty omelets, eggs can also be used as an all-natural and affordable beauty product. Used in their raw form, eggs help boost the skin's vibrancy and do wonders for hair. Using a raw egg treatment on the hair will add volume to your locks and boost its shine. The egg treatment will also strengthen the hair follicles, aiding in the prevention of hair loss. Next time you need a quick hair mask, look no further than your fridge. Just be sure not to rinse with hot water or you could end up with a scrambled mess.

Raw Egg Treatment to Cure Dandruff

Dandruff cannot only be uncomfortable and irritating, but embarrassing as well. Next time you go out on the town in your favorite LBD (little black dress), avoid an embarrassing "flaky" evening by trying a simple home remedy. Mix up an entire raw egg and massage it into damp hair and leave it on for 15 minutes. Rinse off the mixture off with cool water, and you'll be left with not only deeply conditioned hair, but also a flake-free scalp. Eggs contain vitamin A, which helps to produce sebum, curing dandruff.

Egg Yolks for Glossy Hair

Heating products, chemicals and even sunlight all cause damage to the hair. It's no wonder we are constantly trying to find new methods to moisturize and boost your hair's shine. Egg yolks work as a natural conditioner for the hair. The protein from the egg yolk will strengthen hair follicles, resulting in shiny, glossy hair. For an added boost, mix the egg yolks with lemon juice for ultra lustrous locks.

Preventing Hair Loss and Promoting Growth

Raw egg treatments are also an effective method to aid in the prevention of hair loss. Eggs contain vitamin E and D, essential vitamins that strengthen hair, skin and nails. For hair, vitamin E promotes oxygen absorption and vitamin D will aid in new hair growth. Raw egg treatments keep the scalp and hair follicles healthy, which is the key to preventing hair loss.

Volume Booster

Tired of lackluster, limp hair? A raw egg conditioning treatment will also strengthen the hair and give it more body. The proteins and vitamins in the egg yolks will straighten the follicles, boosting the hair's volume. The trick to voluminous, healthy hair definitely should not have to cost an arm and a leg.
