Egg and Hair Vitamins

Natural hair care doesn’t need to be expensive. There are two basic recipes you can use:

If your hair is oily or has dandruff:
- Mix a raw egg with lemon juice, beat well and apply to hair and remain for 20 minutes and then rinse off.

If your hair is dry or normal:
- Mix a raw egg with a few drops of olive oil and apply to hair, leave it for 20 minutes and wash your hair with shampoo.
