Add Protein & Moisture to over-styled hair

Time:  20 minutes to apply, 20 minutes to sit on hair
Supplies:  2 - 4 eggs, 1/8 - 1/4 Cup of Honey, hair clips or barrettes 
Difficulty:  easy, but somewhat messy

What are we doing with these:  eggs and honey?
No, it's not a cooking post.
It's a salon-quality hair treatment at home!

If you're like me, and Bella, your hair suffers damage every day from UV rays, styling products, hard water, coloring.  
You name it.  What's a girl to do?

You could try expensive salon treatments and hair masks promising keratin delivery to your locks, 
but it could cost you a ton.

Keratin is a protein naturally found in hair that gives it strength, and leaves it smooth and healthy looking.  But keratin can break down from all the stress we put our hair through.  

If yours feels stretchy, dry, stringy, broken and 
just plain tired, try this.

Honey is a natural humectant, which means it traps the moisture inside and restores its softness.  The eggs restore the protein, which strengthens hair and smooths the cuticle layer.  You can also add 1 - 2 Tbls of olive oil to really add a moisturizing punch.  

Watch our video tutorial for how to do it, and how often to do it.  You won't be able to stop running your hands through your new hair.

  1. Is the honey hard to wash out?

    1. Honey alone would be. But mixed with the egg it wasn't too bad. I gave it a really thorough shampooing afterward and it was fine.

  2. How does it help for strengthening? Will it help for preventing dead ends?

    1. Your hair loses its own protein with daily damage. Adding protein strengthens the hair shaft itself and smoothes the cuticle. It makes it less breakable and frizzy. Which leaves it softer and shinier. Dead ends are usually a result of styling. It won't stop them completely, but it will make them less of a problem.

    1. Coconut oil is great for adding moisture to hair by penetrating the hair strands and clinging on. It helps the strands actually repels water, so it helps reduce frizzy hair. But it doesn't add protein like the eggs or other protein products can. If you have coconut oil, use it. But you might try mixing in an egg or two if your hair has a lot of breaking and damage.

    1. Absolutely! Protein is great for all hair types, so is the honey. You may want to add a few tablespoons of olive oil to really soften and moisturize the hair. Good luck.

  5. Did the smell of the egg get to you? It sounds so gross, but I'm sure it works!

    1. It did smell "eggy" when it was on my hair, but not overpowering. And it doesn't smell at all after you wash it.
