5 Ways to Use Eggs for Healthier Hair

Words by: Hello Glow

Raise your hand if you’d like healthier, shinier hair. Because who doesn't? As someone who’s always looking for ways to make her hair grow faster, look shinier, and feel thicker, I’ve got some good news: you can stop splurging on expensive hair products. The key to healthy hair has been right in your refrigerator this whole time.

The nutrients in eggs (those gorgeous golden yolks, especially) are the same ones found in strong, glossy hair. And adding eggs to your beauty regimen can refresh even the most frazzled locks. While you’re free to slather raw eggs in your hair and call it a day, I recommend taking a more tailored approach based on your particular hair woes. Combining eggs with other ingredients like aloe vera, essential oils, and lemon juice can help target specific issues and do wonders for all different types of hair.

Understanding hair problems

To understand why your hair is acting up, it’s important to consider the factors that contribute to hair problems in the first place. An unbalanced diet, chemical treatments, environmental damage, time of year, and overstyling can all strip your hair of moisture, minerals, and protein. This leads to dry, weak strands that break and frizz more easily.

Why use eggs for healthier hair?

Eggs are a nutrient-rich hair superfood. Vitamins A and E, biotin, and folate are just some of the nutrients found in eggs that are said to help keep hair thick and healthy. The yolk is loaded with healthy fats, which help replenish moisture and make strands look sleek and shiny. And because hair is 80% protein, applying protein-rich eggs to hair can help replenish the protein lost through styling, making hair stronger and better able to stand up to heat.

It’s not just the hair shaft itself that benefits from eggs—they can do wonders for your scalp as well. Applying eggs directly to the roots helps infuse hair follicles with much-needed vitamins and minerals. Nourishing the scalp encourages new hair to grow stronger and be less prone to breakage or shedding. And when your hair doesn’t fall out as much, it appears thicker and healthier.

Choosing the best ingredients for your hair

To get the most vitamins and minerals from your eggs, it’s important that you use organic, free range eggs from hens that have access to outdoor pasture. Pete and Gerry's egg farmers allow their flocks spend most of their time outside enjoying grass, bugs, fresh air, and sunlight. Thanks to access to pasture and high quality organic feed, the hens' eggs are chock-full of the vitamins and minerals your hair needs to grow thick and shiny.

So just pick up some Pete and Gerry's Organic Eggs and whip up these hair treatments for healthier hair in minutes.

Hi Shirley! Our eggs are currently only sold in the United States, which likely explains why you haven't come accross them yet. Perhaps someday we will expand into Canada, but for now, we hope you will enjoy our eggs the next time you take a trip to the U.S.!
