They say the average person loses 50 to 100 strands of hair each day, but much more than that, and you may start to develop a bald patch, or thinning hair.
Millions of people experience hair loss, and the reasons behind that are many, from extreme stress to hereditary thinning or baldness, autoimmune diseases, medications, pregnancy, weight loss and more.
Both men and women frequently spend exorbitant amounts of money every year on hair products that promise to make their hair thicker, longer and give them a healthy shine. And often, they don't even work.
But why waste your hard-earned money when you can have stronger, thicker hair simply by making a concoction right at home using just three ingredients: an egg, raw honey and castor oil.
Egg yolk contains protein, fatty acids and vitamins that all work together to strengthen your hair, while the vitamin A helps to moisturize and promote growth. It also contains lecithin, known to help protect the hair from breakage.
Honey, provided you don't go for the processed stuff, is loaded with antioxidants that work to soften your hair while providing a healthy boost to your scalp and follicle. Adding honey helps to add shine while promoting growth.
Castor oil contains an amino acid called ricinoleic. It has the ability to penetrate into the scalp and hair follicles to work its magic. Plus it aids in regulating the pH level of the scalp while eliminating dandruff and protecting the hair from damaging environmental factors.
To make this hair tonic, you'll need an egg, one tablespoon of honey and two tablespoons castor oil.
Combine all of the ingredients into a bowl and mix thoroughly. You can double or triple the recipe, depending on the length of your hair. Apply for to the scalp and roots of the hair, then apply the remaining mixture to the rest of your hair. Place a shower cap or other covering over your hair, and allow it to sit for two to four hours. Afterwards, rinse, shampoo and condition as usual. Aim to do this once or twice each week, and within about two months, you'll experience incredible results.
