Hair Treatment

Effective hair treatment makes your hair sleeker and more shiny. Among the following methods, you can select one which is most suitable for you.

Method 1: Massage your hair with 2 – 3 eggs and incubate it for half an hour. After that, wash your hair with shampoo and rinse it well. Do it twice per month and get surprised how sleek your hair is!

Method 2: Mix 2 tablespoons lemon juice with 1 egg and incubate your hair for half an hour, and rinse it with water later. It helps your hair get stronger and more shiny.

Method 3: Stir 2 yolks (depends on your hair length) with 2 teaspoons castor oil. Apply the mixture evenly onto your hair, leave it there for 10 minutes and wash it again with regular shampoo.

Method 4: Beat a yolk until it is foaming throughout and slightly pale. Add 1 tablespoon baby oil and stir the mixture again. Pour a little water into the mixture and then rub it evenly on your hair roots. Wait until your hair gets dry and wash it well with shampoo. It will make your hair softer than regular conditioners.

Method 5: Stir a yolk with 1/4 cup yogurt, a little finely chopped lemon zest. Beat the mixture evenly and apply it onto your hair and scalp. Make sure that the mixture can be absorbed on all hair. Wait for 10 minutes and then wash your hair well with shampoo. This mixture is really good to nourish hair.
