Benefits Of Eggs For Hair

1. Makes Hair More Resistant To Damage 

As egg yolk is rich in vitamins, it makes your hair more repellent to damage making your roots stronger each time you apply a hair mask. It also reduces breakage and diminishes the chances of split hair while improving your hair texture at the same time.  

2. Makes Hair Shiny 

Egg works as a great natural conditioner and is the best ingredient you can put on your hair for that shine. It moisturises dry hair and is a superfood to your hair, full of vitamin E and B. 

3. Promotes Hair Growth

If you apply egg yolk to your hair, you are infusing vitamins right into your roots. As we all know, hair growth happens from the root of the hair. Egg yolk strengthens it so that the hair that grows can be stronger and much less prone to breakage.
