Dandruff (You may also like: Using Apple Cider Vinegar to Cure Dandruff and if your oily hair is causing dandruff, check out: 10 Ways to Make Hair Less Greasy)

Egg yolks contain vitamin A, B, D & E while most of an eggs protein is found in the white along with some bacteria-eating enzymes. There are a lot of different recipes and suggestions on which part of the egg to use and what to mix it with but after a lot of reading, it seems to make the most sense to use the whole egg to get all the benefits it has to offer.

DO NOT USE THIS MASK IF YOUR HAIR HAS TOO MUCH PROTEIN. Not sure if it does, check out THIS ARTICLE for the warning signs. If you’ve been using a mask, deep conditioner, shampoo or conditioner with protein, you may be overdoing it and causing more harm than good.

-Vitamin A – helps increase sebum production which in turn helps prevent dandruff. This vitamin is also said to help with hair loss
-Vitamin B – There are several different groups of vitamin B found in an egg yolk, most of which increase the oxygen supply to the hair and improve circulation.
-Vitamin D – also helps with hair loss and hair growth
-Vitamin E – also helps with oxygen supply
-Fatty Acids – help to make your hair shiny and prevent dandruff, hair loss, psoriasis and flaky scalp.
-Protein – helps make the hair thicker and the follicle stronger

Here’s an all around beneficial hair mask:

-2 eggs
-2 Tbsp Olive Oil
-1 Tbsp Honey
-Optional ingredients: baking soda, lemon juice, yogurt

I mixed the olive oil and honey together first and warmed it in the microwave for around 30 seconds (don’t get it too warm or it will start to cook the egg when you add it). I then added the 2 eggs and mixed everything together really well before applying it to my scalp and hair. I left it on for about 10 – 15 minutes and then washed it out.
