Now another amazing use of eggs can be done when it comes to hair care. You can easily make its hair pack and its one of the easiest DIY hair masks.  If your hair is oily, use egg white.

You may also like to add a spoon of yoghurt. Blend well and use this protein hair pack to tame your frizzy locks on a bad hair day. You will notice the few extra inches in your hair length in a few months only.

Composed of yoghurt, gram flour and eggs, this hair pack will give a brilliant shine to your hair and will also get you rid of frizzy and unmanageable hair. You can take one egg and break it in a bowl, add half a cup of curd and half a cup of gram flour. You can adjust the quantity as per the hair length. Mix them and use as hair pack on your hair and roots. Shampoo after 40-45 minutes.

Multi Benefit DIY Protein Hair Mask

This hair mask is not for the lazy bones as it requires you to arrange a few ingredients which can make you a procrastinator? Am I right? Probably I am. In today’s fast moving life we hardly have time to do long elaborate DIYs but if you can pull this off, your beautiful hair will love you for that. It has 5 key ingredients which are 2 eggs, ½ cup olive oil, ½ hung curd, ½ cup honey and ½ flat beer/vinegar which will not only give your hair a super silky shine but will also prevent it from breaking in future.

Now comb your hair and apply the hair pack with a brush, wrap your hair in an aluminium foil and wait for 30 minutes, then rinse with cold water and apply conditioner before shampooing your hair. And lastly mix flat beer or vinegar with water and rinse it off to restore shine in your hair. Pheww? Tired? Only by reading? Don’t worry it will be worth it in the end.

Egg protein hair pack for thicker stronger hair

Here comes the king ingredient which alone also can give you some incredible benefits to your hair. Since the earlier times egg has been used in a lot of hair care products. This hair pack is very easy to apply, just take 2 eggs and beat them in a bowl. Apply that pack on the scalp and hair with gentle massaging. Leave it for 1 hour and then wash with cold water. Get a nice shampoo  to get rid of that peculiar bad smell the eggs leave in your hair.

Banana-Avocado Hair Pack

Another super pack which I recommend you to see instant changes..I can literally vouch for this protein diy hair pack ! Take one banana, one ripe avocado, wheat germ oil and rose oil. Mix all these ingredients thoroughly and prepare a fine paste. Apply the pack on your scalp and hair. Wait for one hour and wash off with cool water. Shampoo and condition your hair as usual.

Gram flour protein hair pack with shikkakai for hair fall

Since the early times in the era of homemade shampoos, there was a king ingredient which were used on a daily basis which called Shikkakai. It is a natural cleanser and due to its mild properties it never washes away the essential oils from your scalp. Now mix it with gram flour and see the magic of this hair pack. Here you go, Take some shikkakai powder around 3 teaspoonfuls and add 3 teaspoonful of besan or gram flour. Make a paste of these two ingredients using some water. Apply this protein hair pack on the scalp and hair. Leave for one hour an then rinse with water. You will not require shampoo as besan is a natural hair cleanser and shikkakai as well. If you have dry hair, this is one of the best hair packs you can try.

DIY Egg and honey protein hair pack

If you have a day off and in a mood to pull off a hair pack like this then you will thank me in the end, I am pretty sure about it! Take 2 eggs and beat them properly to make the texture thick. Add 1 tablespoon of honey and mix it. Use this protein hair pack on the hair and scalp. Leave it for 30 minutes then rinse off with cold water. Shampoo will rinse off that eggs smell.

DIY Coconut milk and banana hair pack

Banana is rich in phosphorus and coconut milk in proteins thus this protein hair pack is best for stronger and beautiful hair but getting rid of that stickiness of that banana pulp can be a hell of a task. Still, it will be worth the effort in the end. To get those silk like hair you can make this pack easily at home, just take one banana and put that in the grinder along with half a cup of coconut milk. Blend them so that the banana gets a pulpy paste. Apply this hair pack on the hair and scalp. Let this pack sit on your head for 30 minutes and then rinse with cold water. This will also heal the dry damaged hair and you will also be prevented from hair breakage in future.

Okay! You don’t need to worry abut those lengthy conclusions. Let me sum it up in one line “THERE IS NO GAIN WITHOUT PAIN”! So all you beautiful girls pamper yourself once in a while with these natural protein pack remedies and you never have to visit a spa for those long hair sessions again.
