PIPS TIPS - Eggs for your HAIR!

Pips Tips

PIPS TIPS – And for something rather random this week…Who wants healthier shinier hair?  My little big sister from another mother hasn’t used Shampoo or Conditioner for over 15 years.  She uses eggs to wash here hair…..and yes I had vision of half cooked scrambled congealed egg through my hair once it hits the hot water, but she assured me this was never the case.  So for this weeks tips I thought I would do some research and it turns out, she’s not the only one that does this.

The nutrients in eggs are the same ones that are found in strong glossy hair and adding eggs to your beauty routine can refresh even the most frazzled locks.  It turns out that there is a science and tailored approach depending on what issues you have with your hair.  You can mix in aloe vera, essential oils and lemon juice to target specific issue and do eggceptional things for all different types of hair.

Understanding hair problems

To appreciate why your hair is behaving the way it is, it’s essential to think about the factors that contribute to hair problems in the first place. An unbalanced diet, chemical treatments, environmental damage, time of year, and over styling can all take away your hairs moisture, minerals, and protein. This leads to dry, weak strands that break and frizz more easily.

Why use eggs for healthier hair?

Eggs are a nutrient-rich hair superfood. Vitamins A and E, biotin, selenium, calcium, magnesium, potassium, phosphorus and folate are known to help keep hair thick and healthy. The yolk is loaded with healthy fats, which help replace moisture and make strands look sleek and shiny. And because hair is 80% protein, applying protein-rich eggs to hair can help replenish the protein lost through styling, making hair stronger and better able to stand up to heat.    In fact, the yolk portion of the egg contains lecithin, which helps in promoting hair growth and making your tresses silky and smooth

Choosing the best ingredients for your hair

To get the most vitamins and minerals from your eggs, it’s important that you use organic free-range eggs from hens that have access to outdoor pasture. Thanks to access to pasture and high-quality organic feed, the hens' eggs are full of the vitamins and minerals your hair needs to grow thick and shiny.  To apply these to your hair, a sauce dispensing bottle with a nozzle can be very helpful!
