egg-for-shampoo?

Have you ever read the ingredients on the back of your favorite shampoo? Many shampoos boast of “all natural ingredients”, but if you look further you will find that there is probably not much, if anything, “natural” about it.   My Mother asked me to find her a shampoo without all the chemicals that she is so allergic to.  So, I started my search for nature’s best.

I started with research on eggs as an alternative to shampoo.  The thought of putting an egg in my hair was less than appealing to me.  But since I am my Mother’s guinea pig, I had little choice but to give it a try. I whisked one egg and headed to the shower.  You don’t want the water hot enough to cook the egg in your hair, so my shower was cooler than I am accustomed to.   The sensation of the cold slime in my hair was unlike anything I had ever experienced.  I massaged the egg into my hair and scalp before rinsing well.

I really wasn’t expecting much.  I was sure that I would have to jump back into the shower and lather up with my shampoo.  But, after drying my hair I was amazed at how much volume I had.  I usually have to shampoo, condition and then add a little mousse to give my fine lifeless hair some body, but I had body, with one egg!! No weird ingredients that I couldn’t read or understand…just nature’s best!

Before anything else I had to call my Mother to share the good news—it works!!  Yes, I will have to get past the cold slime and the cooler showers.  I will have to give up the great smelling lathers.  But in exchange I get great hair naturally.  I’m sold!   And now my Mother is ready to test the waters.

I have used egg in my hair now for one week and still love the effects.  I have always washed my hair daily, but have noticed that I can get away with washing every other day.   What do you have to lose?  I say, give it a try!

Stay with me, next week I will try mayonnaise (yes I said mayonnaise) as an alternative to shampoo.
