Can You Use Eggs to Thicken Your Hair?

Using eggs on the hair can help thicken it by increasing its volume and strength. Eggs are essentially made up of proteins, and regular protein treatment promotes hair growth. Protein treatments make hair follicles stronger, resistant to breakage and less likely to get split ends.

Egg protein treatment also makes the hair smooth and easier to comb. This means that hair is less likely to get knotted and tangled while brushing, which reduces breakage. Eggs act as a conditioner and can help restore dull and damaged hair with regular treatment. The treatment is especially helpful to people with thinning hair.

Depending on the length of the hair, beat two or more eggs in a bowl, mixing thoroughly. Apply the eggs generously on dry hair, massaging it into the hair. Allow the protein treatment to sit for 15 minutes before rinsing with cool water and shampooing as usual.
