Sunny-Side Hair (All Natural Hair Mask)

It's so not sunny where I am... the groundhogs lied... it was snowing yesterday and freezing today.

Anyway, I wanted to share how you can keep your hair amazingly soft and shiny for weekS with this hair mask method of mine.
I don't like doing store-bought or professional salon hair masks, because a) they're a waste of money, b) they look and feel synthetic, c) the results aren't that great, and d) the shine and softness doesn't last much longer than two days.

What you need from the kitchen:
  • 1 large egg (2 medium eggs if you have thick or long hair)
  • 1/2 teaspoon vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil (2 tablespoons if you are using 2 eggs)
Put all within a bowl:
and, whip it real good.  It should look something like this:
Now, you need:
  • 1 disposable shower cap
  • 2 attached kitchen paper towel sheets
  • 1 or 2 bobbypins
  • 1 hair tie
Scoop the mixture onto your head with your hands or a spoon, primarily coating the entirety of your hair stands, as you would with conditioner.  I would recommend doing this in the washroom.
Once you have used up all of the mixture, tie your hair into a high bun.

Fold the kitchen roll sheets, such that, they are a thick strip, and wrap it along your hairline.  Make sure the ends overlap above your forehead.  Fasten the strip at your forehead, with bobbypins.  The purpose of this paper towel strip is to catch any liquid that may run from your scalp heat.
It's important for you to leave the two sheets attached; otherwise, good luck trying to keep both on your head, lol...

Finally, put on the shower cap.

Leave the mask on for one hour, then shampoo.  You will have no need conditioner for at least three weeks!

When I did it a month ago, I did it with a nose strip.  What better time to stick shit on your nose than when there's egg in your hair?


  1. How often should you do this?

    1. I usually do this once a month during the Summer and once every two weeks during the Winter. If my hair is particularly feeling the harsh weather conditions (wind or sun), I'll do it more often.
