Can eggs prevent hair loss?
When people begin to notice their hair shedding or thinning, they tend to seek out a variety of methods, natural or artificial, to slow it down. For some, this could be hair transplants or a trip to the dermatologist. But what if the solution was sitting in a carton in your fridge?
Eggs preventing hair loss? It’s not a yolk!
According to a recent study published in the Journal of Medicinal Food and popularized by an article in Men’s Health, egg yolk was found to stimulate the growth and production of human hair cells implanted in rats. This is because egg yolk contains a compound necessary for healthy stimulation of vascular endothelial growth, which is a protein hair follicles need to grow. Additionally, many times people begin to experience hair thinning because of a poor diet and inadequate nutrition. Because eggs contain high amounts of protein, fatty acids, and lecithin, they are often hailed as hair loss-prevention heroes.
If dietary restrictions prevent you from implementing more eggs into your diet, making a DIY hair mask using eggs works just as well. Simply whisk two eggs together in a bowl and use a brush to apply the mixture directly onto your scalp. Be sure to massage it into your scalp so it gets into contact with the follicles. Adding other natural ingredients to the mask such as olive oil, honey, lemon juice, or milk can strengthen your strands while nourishing the follicles. Leave the mask in for about a half-hour before rinsing it out.
