Something went wrong.

For as long as I can remember I have always had something going on with my hair. I had thick long natural hair which I HATED so I had it creme; the stylist burned my scalp the first time my hair was processed so any strong chemical such as creme goes in my hair it would burn (the heck) out of me. 

I started to not care about my hair until it was way too damaged, we had to chop it off (BIG CHOP). My hair was then jerry curled where the process included it processed first then forcefully curled (lol, did anyone say Michael Jackson?) 

To strengthen my hair, I learned that an egg – yes that breakfast food you have in your kitchen – is the most organic way for your hair -and dare I say body- to receive high-quality protein. Jo Lewin a registered nutritionist stated in her article, “The health benefits of eggs” that “eggs are rich sources of selenium, vitamin D, B6, B12 and minerals such as zinc, iron, and copper”. She then went on to say that “they (the eggs) are a source of fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E and K, and lecithin”.

It must be stated that even though they are rich sources of many vitamins the body needs there is little scientific evidence to back the claim that it is good for your hair. So then why this article?

During this pandemic, most of us are home and most of us now have the time to work on aspects of our body that we don’t like; for many of us it’s weight loss/gain, sleeping more, focusing on our businesses, spending time with our family while for others we want to work on growing our hair; not just for length but healthy hair. An egg is a perfect solution to this problem.

My second big chop came in 2018 where I had in a weave for more than 3 months. YIKES! When I finally decided to take it out my real hair decided to go with it. I could tear my hair like paper when it was wet. I decided I could not go on with this so I cut off everything. This time I decided to go NATURAL. 


I became one of those women who was (and still am) very obsessed with their hair. I was no starting from scratch and was learning about my hair; what it liked, what it didn’t like, and so forth. I found out that organic products work best with my hair. My hair hates products that are tampered with; so I go for items such as egg, aloe vera, and honey. 

This is my growth one year and four months later:

All in all, an egg is a great source of protein for persons who wish to strengthen and grow their hair. It is rich in many vitamins and minerals that are important to our body, it can be found in our yard or our neighbor’s premises and most importantly, it works! 

Let me know how it works for you.
