How eggs help your hair?
There are a number of ways egg help our hair. But let’s take a look at the most important ones.
- Being rich in proteins and other nutrients, eggs serve as hair food and boost the rate at which your hair grows
- Not only eggs promote hair growth, they promote healthy new growth
- The nutrients found in eggs also curb hair loss by stimulating and nourishing your scalp and strengthening your hair roots
- Eggs are also rich in lutein, a compound that hydrates your hair and improves the hair elasticity
- Lutein in egg yolks will help with brittle hair, prevent breakage and split-ends, and improve the texture of your hair
- Hair is made of 70% protein, which means the protein found in eggs will help rebuild the damaged keratin gaps and heal damage
- Last, but not least, protein in egg whites will give your hair a healthy shine
What part of the egg to use?
Some recipes for egg hair mask require egg yolks, others require egg whites, and some require whole eggs.
Here is a breakdown what part of the egg is best suited for you.
The egg white is a rich source of protein, and also contains minerals like potassium, sodium, and magnesium.
The egg white is great for promoting hair growth.
If you have oily hair, it is best that you use only egg whites, as they help control the production of oil, all while nourishing your hair.
However, egg whites do not condition your hair as much as the yolk, so you’ll need to use a conditioner.
The yolk is also rich in protein, but not as much as the egg white.
What the yolk provides is an abundance of B-vitamins and folic acid, which are referred to as “hair food”.
The fatty content of the yolk is a great condition agent.
People with dry hair should definitely use the egg yolk.
