Hair Treatment for Dry, Brittle Hair


  • 1 egg
  • 3 – 4 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 1 quarter peeled cucumber


  1. Place all ingredients in the blender and blend until a wet paste.
  2. Spread evenly on your hair and leave it on for about 10 minutes.
  3. Rinse thoroughly.

Olive oil is lightweight and contains essential fatty acids to strengthen hair. A raw egg is marvelous for your hair – The yolk, rich in fats and proteins, is naturally moisturizing, while the white, which contains bacteria-eating enzymes, removes unwanted oils. Because cucumbers are high in silica, sulfur and have just enough vitamin A, they are excellent for promoting hair growth and preventing hair loss.
