This was the nicest part of my hair.
Few days ago I was despairing about my hair. About week before that, I had decided to risk my hair by re-blonding it because my roots were showing and a trip to a hairdresser was out of question. I KNEW that I was risking it. My hair wasn’t in a very good condition to begin with but vanity took over and I went ahead with the dyeing anyway.
Okay, the first day after the dyeing my hair didn’t look too bad. Mainly because of that extra efficient conditioner you get with hair dye packages. By day three, my hair was a complete frizz fest. In fact, words like fried and pubic hair came to mind. It looked that bad. I tried conditioning it but it didn’t help at all. Insert tears here.
Then I remembered that someone had said that egg masks are really good at fixing hair. I didn’t have anything to lose so I googled some recipes and decided on one by Wikihow that is put on dry hair and left on for 30 minutes.
All you have to do is whisk them together. I used a fairly large cup and a lollipop stick to whisk :D
It is quite runny. I tried to spread it by pouring some on my head and then spreading it with my hand. It was quite clear that I would have wasted most of the mix this way, so I used an extra hair dye brush I had in hand to spread it.
There’s Something About Mary-action going on.
After the mixture was somewhat evenly spread, I took a plastic bag which I slit open from the front and back to make myself a turban to stop the mixture dripping while it ‘developed’:
Gorgeous me. Am I classy or what?
Don’t move the plastic during that 30 minutes! Otherwise this will happen:
Don’t they call this money shot in some circles?
Use this 30 minutes wisely. I put on a face mask too and for once let it sit long enough because I had to wait for the hair mask anyway. When the half an hour is gone, the mixture is somewhat set, and you can remove your turban. Your hair should look like this:
Even more like Something About Mary.
To remove the mask, just rinse it with warm water. Then you can wash and condition it like you would normally. And here’s the result:
It even reduced the split ends!
Day three AFTER the mask. Smoother than ever!
My verdict: SUPERB! I wish I could have gotten better picture of the frizz I had before the mask because words can’t describe how different my hair is now. Definitely worth the effort! Maybe now I dare to venture towards DIY facial masks. Have you tried DIY-beauty remedies?
