Ok, so in my quest to feed my hair some protein, I finally bit the bullet and decided to use the egg treatment…cue cringe moment! I tried looking for an alternative, really I did…but everything I read and watched sort of pointed to eggs. So hey…the worst that could happen is I spend a couple of hours picking scramblies out of my hair right!? So I got a container thing, put in an egg, a good sized dollop of ORS hair mayo treatment, a dash of conditioner (I’m not sure why, but I just did), a little olive oil, a little castor oil and mixed it all up…BY THE WINDOW. Note winter is coming and so temps are like zero degree’s in the evenings and I figured the colder the less risk of the eggs scrambling right? Yes I was paranoid like that. So as I mixed everything in, I could swear there was an egg boogey look alike and the urge to gag took me over and that led me to putting in some tea tree to completely mask anything egg about this dodgy mix. So I left it by the OPEN window while I changed (I don’t really trust room temps – threateningly warm me thinks lol). So I then sectioned my hair in 4 parts, put some music on and sang along as I put the stuff on my hair. Granted it was messy, but it wasn’t messy as say the yogurt mix which is good. I initially thought I was going to leave it on for like half an hour, but miss tried and tested scramblie here said she left hers on for two hours. So I figured, it’s on my head, I might as well right? Thing is, with my scramblies paranoia, I was worried bout my body temperature warming up the egg mix so popped my head out of the window in sub-zero temps to make sure it stayed cool…much to the amusement of the same miss scramblie. Good thing it was misty out and I don’t think people would spot serious old me sticking her eggy head out of the window in those temps.
Aaaanywhoo, so I washed out my eggy mix in yes freezing COLD water (disclaimer – hair care can result in the flu). Admittedly even after aaall those precautions I still had some eggy boogers…ok ok they were tiny and were like 3 or 4, so I guess I did relatively well. I then did a co-wash and bantu-knotted for the night.
Results? Well, I really could feel a strength to my hair and because of the oils in there it was very well moisturized, so I guess it did something. I’ve been having lots of shedding lately and looking closely at my lifestyle, my protein intake hasn’t been what it should be, so with this protein treatment, I am also planning to include more beans and protein stuff in my diet and hope the shedding stops. So yes…Asilia Prime it was…egg on asilia bots!!!
