a guide to protein treatments ♥

You will need 2 eggs, or more depending on the length of your hair. Some honey, some olive oil and a bowl. 

Now in terms of the egg you need to use a different section depending on the state of your hair. If your hair is dry you need to use the egg yolks of the egg, if your hair is oily you need to use the egg white part of the egg. First you whisk/stir your eggs into a bowl. Then you will need to add around 3 tablespoons of olive oil (but if you have oily hair then you might want to skip this part). Then you stir in a couple of tablespoons of honey. I find that honey helps to soften the hair, and it also eliminates that awful smell of egg. You apply this mixture either to wet or dry hair but I have found that it is easier on dry hair. Cover your hair with a plastic cap and leave it on for about 20 minutes. when you wash it out, do not use hot water as this will cook the egg in your hair. Use lukewarm water and make sure you follow up with a conditioner because your hair may feel a bit hard afterwards. The main purpose of a protein treatment is not to moisturise the hair, but to strengthen it from damage and split ends. The addition of honey and olive oil are just a little boost to try and add moisture. So you can do it solely with eggs if that is how you prefer it.
