    For this next part, lean over a bathtub, or stand in the shower, because this gets messy!

    Flip your hair foreword so that it's all in your face, dip your brush into your warm mask mixture and start applying to your DRY hair!

    *If your hair is wet, it will absorb the water instead of your mask, and won't be as effective!

    Continue brushing the mixture through your hair until it's gone and ALL your hair feels wet and soaked.

    *Be warned, the egg doesn't smell the greatest...

    Twist your egg/yoghurt/olive oil soaked hair on top of your head, and cover it with saran wrap!

    Let it soak in for 30 minutes, then take a shower, rinsing your hair VERY thoroughly!
    Shampoo and condition as usual, rinse with cold water just before you get out, let air dry, and

    WHAM!
    Thicker, shinier hair for no cost!
    :)

  • Step 11

    I use this mask at least once every month, because I am in the process of growing my hair out!

    Starting Length: 15 inches/38 cm
    Current Length: 16 inches/40.5 cm
    Goal Length: 24 inches/61 cm

Could this be left in your hair for a while (more than 30 minutes) or even overnight, or would that be too much with the egg an all?

Myka: I started my hair journey on November 6, 2011 and last measured it on December 5, 2011! I've been doing additional things to make it grow besides this mask, but it grew an inch in one month! YAY!

Dizzy: Wow really?! What a nightmare! D: That has never happened to me! Once I rinsed and shampooed my hair really well I couldn't smell the egg at all!
