Egg water is a simple beauty treatment that will leave your hair feeling soft and shiny. Here's a step-by-step guide to making egg water:

Step one: crack an egg and collect the contents in a small bowl.

The process is simple.

  • Crack an egg and collect the contents in a small bowl. If you're using an egg from your own chickens, or even just an organic one from the store, make sure that it's fresh. You can test it by dropping it into some water - if it floats to the top, then you know it's still good; if not, pass on that particular egg and try again until you find one that sinks.
  • Add water to the bowl with your cracked eggs and stir together so that there are no clumps left behind (or else they might get stuck in your hair).
  • Let sit for 15 minutes before rinsing out well with cool water so as not to cook any ingredients on either side of this equation!

Step two: add cold water to the bowl with the egg, and stir.

  • Add enough cold water to cover the egg.
  • Use a fork to stir the mixture until smooth, then set it aside for at least 30 minutes - overnight is better if you want smoother hair in the morning!

Step three: spray your hair with egg water (one section at a time).

This is the most important step of all, but it's also the easiest. You'll want to use a spray bottle to apply egg water directly to your hair. This will help evenly distribute the product and make sure you get it into all of your roots. If you have longer hair, comb through once or twice with a wide-tooth comb after spraying each section for even distribution.

If you're using this as an everyday conditioner, apply egg water on clean hair right away after washing; if you're using this as a deep conditioning treatment, apply egg water on damp hair before bedtime and leave overnight; if your hair needs some extra TLC because it's dry or damaged from heat styling products like curling irons or flat irons (yes, even those can damage!), try applying some egg water when wet after washing - then let air dry while still in its natural curl pattern or style with curling iron/flat iron again afterward (remember: never use heat tools more than once every two weeks).

If you have fine or oily hair, use less water.

  • Oily hair: To treat an oily scalp, rinse your hair with egg water for 5 to 10 minutes and then wash with a mild shampoo.
  • Fine/Straight Hair: For curly or wavy hair, use egg whites only. Put one tablespoon of white vinegar in the bowl (the same as if using whole eggs) and whip with a fork until foamy.
  • Dry/Curly Hair: To treat dryness on the ends of your curls, pour over some extra virgin olive oil before rinsing out the egg water so that it can coat every strand evenly. Then wash with a mild shampoo instead of clarifying shampoo because this will help seal in moisture from the inside out instead of stripping it away from outside forces like styling products do!

For dry or frizzy hair, use more water.

Whether you have fine, dry, medium-textured, oily or frizzy hair, the amount of water in your egg mixture will vary. If you have fine hair and want to smooth out its texture (or if it's just naturally straight), use more water in the recipe. If you want volume and body, use less.

If your hair is dry and prone to frizz when exposed to humidity or heat from blow drying (and let's face it - most people fall into this category) then adding a little bit more liquid will help make sure that all the protein gets absorbed into each strand evenly for maximum protection. If your strands are healthier than mine though - or if you're just looking for shine without as much body - a little bit less may be better for you!

You can add other ingredients to the mixture for extra shine, like apple cider vinegar or coconut oil.

Apple cider vinegar is an acidic ingredient that can help to remove buildup from hair and make it look healthier. Coconut oil contains essential fatty acids that can moisturize and nourish your hair, making it shinier and more hydrated.

You can add these ingredients to the water before you add the egg. Or you can use them during your egg-water treatment by breaking open an egg into a cup with apple cider vinegar or coconut oil, mixing well until it becomes smooth, then applying as usual to freshly shampooed hair.

After spraying on the egg water, let it sit on your hair for 10 minutes before rinsing it out.

You can keep the mixture in place by using a shower cap or wrapping your hair in a towel. You can also rinse it out with cold water or warm water - either way is fine!

Rinse thoroughly with warm water.

Rinse your hair thoroughly with warm water. Warm water helps to rinse out the egg, which is why you need to wash it out right away before the egg dries on your hair. Cold water will make your hair stiff and close off the cuticle of your hair follicles, which can lead to breakage or split ends. Warm water will help open up the follicles and close up their cuticles as well as soften any frizziness in your locks!

If you choose to shampoo, do so after rinsing out the egg water, then follow up with conditioner as usual.

If you choose to shampoo, do so after rinsing out the egg water, then follow up with conditioner as usual. Shampooing will help remove any excess oil from your hair and is especially beneficial if you have oily hair or scalp. Conditioner can be used after shampooing to help protect the hair from damage and make it shiny.

Egg water is an affordable, easy way to make your hair softer and shinier!

Egg water is an affordable, easy way to make your hair softer and shinier! It's a natural way to get healthy hair. Egg water is also called egg white water or albumen water.

Egg white is a great natural remedy for oily hair as it helps to control the production of sebum in the scalp. Egg whites contain vitamin B5 which acts as a moisturizer and improves circulation in the scalp. This will result in healthier looking hair as well as increased volume and shine because it increases blood flow that brings more oxygen to your hair follicles causing them to produce more keratin protein which makes them stronger, smoother and less prone to frizziness (which leads us back again).

Conclusion

Egg water is a great way to treat your hair, and it doesn't cost much at all. It's easy to make and use, so we recommend trying it out today!
