To make an egg and olive oil hair mask, beat one or two eggs in a bowl, add 2 to 3 tablespoons of olive oil, mix the concoction and apply it to the hair. Mixing takes about five minutes, and the mixture should be left in the hair for 20 minutes.
- Beat the eggs
One or two eggs can be used for the mixture, depending on hair length. Eggs have protein that helps with hair growth. However, eggs shouldn't be used on the hair more than once a month.
- Add olive oil
The amount of olive oil used also depends on hair length. If two eggs were used, about 2 to 3 tablespoons of olive oil should be used. Olive oil hydrates hair, and a small amount can be used to condition and add sheen to the hair after the treatment. Mix the olive oil and eggs together thoroughly. Half of a ripe avocado can also be mashed into the mixture for added conditioning.
- Coat the mixture on the hair
Wear a shower cap, or wrap a towel around the hair. Leave the mixture in the hair for approximately 20 minutes. Rinse the hair well afterwards, and style the hair as usual.
