Lustrous Locks

[an at-home remedy... get ready to get your DIY on]

I have a confession. I LOVE at-home hair recipes. I won't bother to tell you how much (it's a lot) because it could take awhile. So here, before I run off on a tangent, is one of my favorites: a recipe for soft, shiny, healthy, faster-growing hair. I did it at night, then woke up to these pretty strands:

All you need are two egg yolks, two tablespoons of olive oil and some water. Sounds gross? Well it does feel a little that way when you're swishing your fingers around in it. But hey, it works. And it's an awesome excuse to wear a shower cap. So just mix the stuff together, massage it into your hair (scalp and roots, but especially scalp) and let it sit for fifteen to twenty minutes. Then hop in the shower. NOTE: I would recommend shampooing your hair after doing this or your hair will come out on the greasy be sure to plan this accordingly with your shampoo schedule (shampoo schedule? what am I talking about? check out my shower tips here).

NOTE: the original recipe calls for a whole cup of water. I have decided that is too much. Not only does it make the mixture too runny, making it even more difficult than it already is to get into your hair, but it also dilutes the mixture, making it less effective in my opinion.
