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 somebody, but I had a 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.
