Do you apply Egg on Hair? {Your Opinion}

Hey Everyone! I know I am not being regular with the posts so please bear with me. So, today, I wanted to discuss a very stinky topic. Now, I love watching videos on hair care and reading home remedies for hair care. But, more often than not, you would find egg to be almost one of the best remedies for healthy hair.

Now, I perfectly agree with that because I myself have tried it and I totally love it. But, there is a huge catch with Egg. The Smell. Yeah, you all know how awesome it smells! And, now I am not able to bear it. And, my whole room and bathroom starts stinking so I am not able to use it anymore.
I have been applying curd very regularly in March but sadly it is not helping with the hair dryness. I don’t know what’s wrong with it because curd works fantastically. And, I do use homemade curd not the yogurts available outside. And, still no benefits. And, I have been seriously thinking of switching to egg. It does help hair dryness and provides nourishment.

But, how to avoid the smell? Well, first is Essential Oils. May be they will work unless egg is so powerful that it will overpower the goodness of EO’s ๐Ÿ˜€ Ok, second, I heard in one of those home remedy videos that lemon juice helps reduce the stink from egg. Well, I do not know how true it is but seems worth a try. But, there is another catch. Lemon makes the hair extremely dry, at least for me. So, I tend to avoid it. 
Or, may be, I would try using egg with musk root this time. And, that would be a working day so that I don’t have to bear the egg smell all day long. It would dissipate till the time I am back. Only my maid would be cursing me ๐Ÿ˜€ Or, it is also said that if you mix egg with henna, it doesn’t stink. So, probably I might go ahead and check out either of the remedies. 
What about you? Do you apply egg on your hair? Can you bear the stink or you take some steps to reduce the stink? Would love to hear your remedies :)

    I actually used egg for a while until for some reason i was getting a bit of a rash on my face for using it..but i found that if you mix it with olive oil, yogurt, a squeeze of lemon…its usually fine…i kind of found the smell of olive oil to be too annoying :)

      oh my gosh…you also faced the same issue??? one of my friend also went through it after which she has stopped using egg altogether. i have never used olive oil so no idea about the smell but yes lemon juice reduces the stink of egg!

    Egg even with heena stinks! So, make sure that you do not let it dry and keep it wet throughout the time. Cover your head with a shower cap to prevent it from drying. This helps a bit to keep the smell down.

    i found this remedy online somewhere.
    to remove egg smell.
    dilute vinegar with water and apply on hair o skin . smell will go
    i tried it on my hands after applying egg on my sis’s hair as well as on her hair. it worked wonderfully. also i kept the ratio 1:1.
    hope it helps.

      yes that is true. vinegar is quite overpowering in its smell and removes all other smells but vinegar is very drying for hair so it should be used sparingly!

    i used to use egg white mask to tighten my skin.. i used a real nice hair egg protein from India which was cheap and exquisite but i only found it in Singapore Little India.
    I think lemon bleaches the hair. I’ve heard that apple cider vinegar cleans the scalp.
    i want to try egg on my hair too cos i have heard good things about it. my hair is below my waist now so quite long and i like to keep it real healthy. i use minerals and it darkens my hair and thickens the shaft.

    I regularly use eggs on my hair… I mix olive oil, honey and egg… mixing these does reduce the smell to an extent but not much… though after seeing the results I really dont mind the sting! :)

    egg white part is applied on hair or yellow me bit confuse .. plzz anyone do help me out ….

  7. says

    I apply a mixture of egg, olive oil, curd and honey and I only use the egg white. The smell is almost nil especially if you use 1 day old curd. The only smell you’ll get is of sour curd! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Avoid the yellow if you dont want the smell. The yellow is more moisturizing than the white, but the stink of yellow doesn’t even go away after a wash!

    • says

      yes egg white does not smell much! but then curd also smells ๐Ÿ˜€ i have dry hair so need nourishment because of which yellow is unavoidable ๐Ÿ˜€

    Instead of stinky, messy raw eggs, it is so much easier to use egg oil without any risk of rashes or salmonella infection. There is absolutely no smell and it is so much more convenient. Since I am a working girl, I could use eggs only on Sundays and my hubby always used to crib. Egg oil, I can use any day of the week, leave it on overnight and wash it off in the morning like any regular oil.
    Have you tried it? It’s available on Flipkart and Purplle.

    Every three days, i will find myself the time to do hair masker using henna, egg and honey. The results are awesome. My hair is less frizzy,smooth, and most importantly, my hair loss reduced to the maximum. I m only experiencing two to three strands of hair fall. I tried it for two times only. I m satisfied with the results.i will practice using this hair masker for two months, and let you all know the results.
