When you break an egg open, the yolk is the yellow ball floating in the white. The yolk of an egg is high in nutrients and proteins such as biotin, folate, vitamin A, and vitamin D.
The nutrients present naturally in egg yolk are the same ones found in good, shiny hair. Some people add an egg yolk to their scalp to treat hair loss, brittle hair, or to encourage hair growth.
To understand how egg yolk benefits your hair, we must first explore what causes common hair problems. A bad diet, unnecessary chemical therapies, oxidative stress from your environment, and heat styling can all deplete the proteins in your hair shaft.
Egg yolk is high in vitamins, which can help to improve hair and make it more resistant to injury. The yolk can be particularly helpful for moisturizing dry hair.
Because of the unusual combination of vitamins present inside, egg yolk can be considered a superfood for your hair. Vitamins A and E, biotin, and folate are just a few of the nutrients that have been linked by researchers to hair growth and healthy hair.
Iron deficiency is the most common dietary deficiency in the world. Iron is needed for your body to create new cells. Each egg yolk contains a small amount of iron, but it is significant.
Topically applying egg yolk to your scalp will infuse vitamins into the root of your hair. As a result, the new hair would be smoother and less vulnerable to breakage and shedding. When the hair stops falling out too much, it grows fuller. It can also seem to be rising faster.
How to Apply Egg Yolk to Your Hair:
Mask for the hair
To reap the advantages of egg yolk for your scalp, make a hair mask with egg yolk and olive oil. As a deep moisturizing treatment, you should even use a whole raw egg without combining it with anything else.
Simply combine the egg or egg and oil. Apply the mask to your hair with your fingertips when wearing gloves. Be sure to cover the top of your scalp and the ends of your hair with the product. Allow the treatment to hang on your hair for about an hour before rinsing with cold water.
Possible dangers and side effects
Using egg yolk on the hair is a relatively safe procedure. However, there are a few possible side effects. If you are allergic to eggs, stop using egg yolk on your head, except as a topical remedy.
To see benefits from using egg yolk on your scalp, it may take several weeks of continuous care. Although using egg yolk to enhance the look and health of your hair might not be for all, it is a low-cost and easy way to treat hair that is worth a try.
