    Default Egg: Whole or just yolk?

    If you use eggs on your hair, do you use the whole egg or just the egg yolk? Do you find it makes a difference or no?

    I use the whole egg because I'm too lazy to separate them.

    I use only yolks, I find it's harder to wash out whole ones.

    I use the whole egg in my hair mask. It makes my hair super soft and lasts for days after the mask is applied, even after I've showered again multiple times.

    Oh wow, I'm definitely going to try this asap in a mask! How often do you guys find you use hair mask in general?

    I think I like using a whole egg vs yolk only... for shampoo. Because I feel like I need more than a yolk’s worth to wash so I use two and it’s wasteful to not use two whites.

    This may be a dumb question, but what does an egg mask do? Does it work as a protein treatment?

    No protein in egg is too big to penetrate the hair shaft. It is moisturizing, but forget about the protein.

    If you want DIY protein try gelatin!
    WCC method (washing) --- Rinse-out oil (MO) --- LOC/LCO method (styling)

    Thanks for the reply. I was just curious why eggs, but moisturizing now makes sense to me since I remember people who used to use mayo.

    I've tried both, but I liked it better when using just the yolks. Idk I just felt like the yolks were the more moisturizing part, but I don't really have any science to back that up. I just feel like it. The downside of that is that you have to use more eggs to get the same volume of mask. I loved the way it made my hair feel, soooo smooth and shiny, but it was a lot of work and difficult to wash out so I don't use it anymore.
