Well, if you are also experiencing the same issue, this article is exclusively for you then. Learn how to revive damaged and rough hair with homemade protein treatments from this post. Here we go:


Protein Treatments

1. Egg Protein Treatment

When it comes to pampering dry and damaged hair with external protein sources, nothing can really be better than an egg mask. If you have shoulder-length hair with moderate volume, one egg will be enough for you. Crack it open and beat nicely. Once it becomes frothy, apply all over the scalp and hair by using a brush and cover the head with a shower cap. Wait for 20 to 25 minutes. Then, rinse off with a mild shampoo and cold water. Being rich in protein and fatty acids, the yolk or yellow part of the egg acts as the ‘active ingredient’ in this treatment. It can moisturize our hair strands efficiently and make each of them stronger internally. Hence, we get healthy and shiny locks. You can follow this treatment twice a month.

In order to prepare the mask, you have to take a whole egg in a bowl and beat it properly. Add 3 tablespoons of plain yogurt to it and blend well. You can also replace the yogurt with similar amount of sour cream. Now, apply the mixture to your scalp and hair thoroughly. After 25 to 30 minutes, wash off with a mild shampoo.
