This recipe comes from “Health and Beauty the Natural Way“, by Nerys Purchon. It’s meant to be used as a hair treatment or mask. I really liked it, simple to make, no exotic ingredients needed, and effective.
Combine, in a small bowl:
- 1 egg yolk, beaten
- 1 tablespoon milk
- 1 teaspoon honey
- Optional: 4 drops rosemary, and 2 drops lavender essential oil
Add enough powdered milk to make a paste, and work through slightly damp hair. Cover your hair with a shower cap or a towel that you have wrung out in hot water. Leave on for 20 minutes, rinse out and shampoo.
I made mine too thick at first, and had to thin it with a bit of water. I also omitted the essential oils, and liked it fine without. I used my recipe for castile soap shampoo, with a lemon rinse to finish, check that recipe out here.
I really liked the results, my hair was very silky, easy to style, and the conditioned feeling lasted for another couple washes. This recipe can be used on all hair types, and is particularly helpful for dry/fine/damaged hair.
