Protein treatments are very popular in haircare to strengthen the hairstrands and prevent breakage of brittle, thin hair. Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut gives the following advice for treating hair: “One should stick more to things that are in your kitchen. You can apply… egg white on your hair for a nice protein treatment. Natural beauty always lasts longer.” (Beauty India). Egg whites are also popularly used as a natural shampoo, leaving oily hair feeling clean and refreshed.
Split a few eggs in half and carefully separate the egg whites from the yolks. Beat the egg whites, and if desired, add a little fresh lemon juice and/or olive oil to the mixture for added benefits. Massage the egg whites into damp hair from the scalp down to the tips. Leave on for a maximum of twenty minutes, and wash out thoroughly.
