We start the week with a wonderful healthy hair tip from managedmoms.com team writer and professional and celebrity makeup artist, Karen Hall. Her hair remedy is all natural and includes ingredients that you probably already have on hand in your kitchen!
Beautiful Hair Egg and Honey Pre Poo Method
This simple kitchen remedy has really changed the quality of my hair for the better! The egg contains proteins, vitamins and essential fatty acids, and the honey is a natural humectant that helps to hold moisture in the hair. It is a balance of these elements that keeps hair healthy.
Here is how to do it:
1. Make up the mixture…in a bowl, whip together with a fork, one or two egg yolks (separate the whites, and save them for a nice egg white omelet), with 1 teaspoon raw honey.
2. Before you shampoo, rinse your hair well and squeeze out the excess water. Apply the egg and honey mixture. You can spread it on right from the bowl with your hands, or put it in a squeeze bottle. I do it over the tub and just apply it with my hands. That way the excess in the tub can be easily rinsed away. Saturate the hair, squeezing out the excess.
3 . Leave it in anywhere from a few minutes to half an hour. If you leave it on longer than a few minutes, put a plastic cap on, and then wrap your hair in a towel.
4. Shampoo it out and condition as usual. I find that I get good results if I skip the conditioner, after towel drying, and use a leave in conditioner.
My hair has gotten consistently better if I use this pre poo method, and I saw results after only one time! Once a week is enough to see amazing results….stronger and shiner hair!
