  1. Is it also important to condition the hairs after shampooing? I have excessively dry and rough hairs and whenever I use eggs on my hairs it made them even drier after shampooing. Why is it so?

  2. How many times are you suppose to repeat the castor oil egg mask? Because isn’t it not good to wash your hair everyday.

    1. It is better to try castor oil egg mask 2 – 3 times in a week. Washing your hair daily can leave the scalp excessively dry leading to scalp infections. So, 2 – 3 times in a week should be good enough.

  3. I used to have thick hair until I cut it a few months ago since then my hair has just fallen out. And now I’m freaking scared that I will be bald. I have oily hair so I’ll use the egg white hair mask. Do eggs really work on my hair? I’m afraid of putting something on my hair. Thank you!

    1. Yes, eggs are helpful in repairing the damage, strengthening the hair follicles and nourishes the hair. Choose any one method among the above mentioned and try it regularly as specified for achieving effective results.

  4. I applied egg and lemon 2 times in one week. in the first day, hair fall reduced. but in the second day it was as before. is it because it is because of giving two times in one week?

    1. Try the remedy for at least a month to know whether it is working or not. Even after a month, hair fall doesn’t reduce then stop using this method and try another one.

    1. You can use whole egg (both egg white and yolk). For effective results add 1 – 2 tablespoons of olive oil or coconut oil into it.

  5. MY hair were perfect but the time i just started doing a lot of exercise caused hairfall. My scalp itched as well as pain it might be because of stress im taking pls tell mesome special treatment…… THANKS

  6. I just used the treatment egg yolk, castro oil and coconut oil for 40 mins and wash it off. But after finished my hair fall even worse than usual, is it normal?
