Last few years I have been playing around with various kitchen recipes for face and hair masks. My hair is on the fine side and that I have been trying to grow as long as possible. This recipe makes about two batches depending on how long your hair is. You can wrap up the rest and put in the refrigerator, but use within the next day or so.
Hair Mask Recipe #1
2 Tbl. Of plain yogurt, whole is preferred.
1 Tbl. Of Olive Oil
2-3 drops of Tea Tree Oil (little goes a long way)
Mix all the ingredients together well. Make sure to break up the yoke and white as much as possible. Since this is messy, it is best to do this over a sink or tub. Using your hands, work the mix onto the scalp since that is where you want this concentrated on. You can then move it through the and down to the tips of your hair. Rub and work the mix into your scalp but don’t comb through or you could break or pull the hair. Pile your hair on top of your head and cover with a shower cap and even a towel as well. Be warning that the mix might drip around the edges as it warms.
Leave the mix in for about 15-20 minutes. Rinse mix out well so not to have any egg left in the hair and let air-dry.
Yogurt- Protein, conditioner
Olive Oil- moisturize the hair
Tea Tree Oil- Helps with scalp irritation (Be careful since in concentrated form it can burn if over used, a little goes a long way)
Egg- Protein, moisturize
Disclaimer: I am not a doctor, this is just my own research and working within the kitchen. Don’t ingest this recipe since it has raw egg and tea tree oil in the recipe. Don’t let it get into your eyes as well.
