DIY Egg Yolk Hair Mask

Yesterday’s agenda had so many errands scheduled but of course, Williamson was covered with snow when I woke up and any excuse to stay in and take a personal day was a win in my book.

{Most of the time}, I take really EXTREMELY good care of my hair– I don’t put heat to it often, saturate it with coconut oil once or twice a week and deep condition it on a weekly basis. I haven’t had the luxury of “ down time” these past couple of weeks and I noticed how not giving my hair that extra TLC like I usually do, completely changed the texture of my locks. Fly-aways and frizz is something new to me and is a definite sign of damage and lack of moisture so I decided to create a DIY hair mask that would put protein and moisture back into my luscious locks.

Ingredients:

  • 2 egg yolks (depends on length of your hair)
  • 2 tablespoons of caster oil
  • 4-tablespoons of coconut oil

This DIY hair mask is my own concoction but feel free to skip out on or add your own fresh ingredients and/or oils. I mixed 3 super ingredients in this mask together and applied it for 20-30 minutes then washed it out as I normally would.

Benefits:

Egg yolks are full or lecithin, protein and cholesterol. Like most cholesterol-rich foods, they are jam-packed with important nutrients, especially the fat-soluble vitamins and essential fatty acids that make your hair stronger, shinier and healthier.

Caster Oil contains many hair growing properties. I’m sure you all have seen my “Beauty Tip Tuesday’s” on Instagram where I swear by using caster oil on my lashes and brows to help them grow and become fuller. This was the perfect ingredient in this mask since stress has been an everyday thing for me, resulting in hair loss. Caster oil is VERY thick in consistency, therefore I diluted it with my all time favorite, coconut oil.

Coconut Oil is my staple beauty product (as if you all don’t know this by now). It has so many uses and benefits for the body, inside and out! I love using it to moisturize and deep condition my hair and scalp.

Results:

I let my hair air dry like I always do to help prevent damage from heat. Instantly, my hair felt shiner, moisturized and very lightweight. I’ve never used this particular recipe with the caster oil but I absolutely love it and find it a must– especially for these colder months that can be brutal to our luscious locks and scalp!

 Hope you all enjoyed and try out this mask! If you try any other ingredients with egg yolks please share in the comments below, I’d love to try out different recipes!

Be sure to keep up with me on Facebook and Instagram where I post more regularly!

Love Always,

<3 Megan

  1. Love this and I will definitely try this. Let me ask you a question though. I’m have naturally curly hair. If I don’t blow dry it straight it is a mess. Lol. Like I don’t know how to make ipthe curls look soft and bouncy. I jphave to use mouse or gel and then it looks stiff.

    1. Thank you, Tiffany! Let me know how you like it after trying it out! First of all, I must say, I’m very jealous that you have bouncy, curly hair! My hair isn’t straight but more on the wavy side… I would give an arm and a leg for natural, bouncy curls!

      Instead of using a mousse or gel, have you ever tried using a serum? Serums aren’t sticky and they will leave your hair very smooth and manageable. Gels and mousses tend to make hair crunchy while serum and oils soothen and moisturize. I have been using a Garnier Fructis serum from the drugstore for YEARS now and absolutely love it. Buy any serum that you may like and when your hair is damp, rub a very small amount through your hands and the ends of your hair. When all the serum is distributed, take what’s leftover on your hands and work it towards your scalp. You don’t want to saturate your scalp with serum because it will weight it down. Let it hair dry and see if that makes any difference in your curls!

      I hope this helps you a little bit! Thanks so much for stopping by and reading! ❤

Leave some love!
