Have you ever considered washing your hair with egg?
It sounds intriguing and weird at the same time, right?
Washing your hair with eggs is a real thing. It is quite an effective way of cleaning your scalp and hair. While I first heard about it, I felt bit weird. I thought it would make my hair greasier or leave the strong egg smell behind and thought it would be really messy. But when I gave it a try, it worked like a charm.

Egg shampoo actually makes your hair softer and adds a beautiful shine. It helps in removing dirt and greasiness from your scalp and hair. It actually adds life to your dull hair and makes it softer, smoother and more manageable.
This shampoo is completely natural and free of harsh chemicals. This won’t strip off the natural oils from your scalp leaving your hair dry and damaged. Plus within 2 minutes you get the benefit of using egg for hair.
How To Make Egg Shampoo At Home?
To make this shampoo you need very basic things that are actually readily available in your home.
- Shikakai Powder-3tsp
- Lemon juice (optional)-1tsp

- Lavender essential oil (optional)-4drops
Take a bowl and crack open the egg.
Now add Shikakai powder to it and mix everything very well nicely.
Now you will have the paste. Adjust the consistency as you need for the shampoo by adding water or lemon juice. I like mine bit runny. It makes it easier to spread through my hair length and works better for me.
Add either Rosemary or Lavender essential oil to the shampoo if you like.
