Using eggs as a conditioner is one way to strengthen hair with a homemade protein treatment. People with oily hair should separate the yolk from the egg white.
Those with normal hair can use the entire egg. For long hair, it might take two to three eggs to coat the entire head.
To use eggs as a strengthener, the person should first wash the hair thoroughly, and while it is still damp, completely cover it with the eggs. After covering the hair, the egg should sit for 20 minutes so that the protein can work to strengthen the hair. After this time, the hair can be rinsed and shampooed again.
