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? When you suffer from excess hair loss, you may feel the need to make a change immediately in order to put a stop to the loss. Inadequate nutrition is a common reason for hair loss, which is probably why so many foods are promoted as surefire ways to prevent baldness.
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.Eggs, either eaten or massaged into the scalp, do actually have properties that can stop excess hair loss and potentially prevent baldness. Some of them include:
- Protein: Your hair is made primarily of protein, so it is essential to eat enough protein in order to get your hair to stop shedding and grow instead. Eggs are good sources of protein that can promote hair growth and prevent baldness.
- Fatty Acids: If you are less interested in eating eggs and instead want to use egg as a hair moisturizer, there may be benefits of doing so. Fatty acids found in eggs can nourish your hair and scalp, which leads to hair that is healthy and less likely to fall out.
- Lecithin: Egg yolks contain lecithin, a fat that is important for building cell membranes. Some advocates of using eggs for hair growth believe that lecithin, either eaten or massaged onto the scalp, is one of the reasons egg is effective for preventing hair loss.
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.
In order to make an egg mask for your hair, whisk together a couple of eggs with a fork, apply the mask to wet hair, and wash it out with cold water after half an hour or so. You can also try adding other ingredients to your masks, such as honey, olive oil, or yogurt. These can add moisture to your hair and scalp while strengthening your hair.
