Honey and egg, two ingredients to say the least magic for our hair. The honey has a high moisturizing and literally makes hair shine, as well as giving new structure and body to the hair brittle and weak. The egg, on the other hand, is a concentrate of advantages: the yolk contains proteins, fats and hydrates in a natural way: the albumin brings enzymes and eliminates the excess of oiliness (which makes it an excellent ally for oily hair) .

2 eggs (if you have very short hair it will be enough even 1) 
3 tablespoons of olive oil 
3 tablespoons of honey

Add the olive oil to the beaten eggs and mix carefully, then incorporating the honey and continuing to beat until I have obtained a cream that is as homogeneous as possible.

The mask should be applied to dry hair, starting from the roots and spreading the mixture for all lengths. It will be important to carefully massage the skin, applying circular movements where the follicles are found, the only living part of the hair. After about 30 minutes you can rinse with cold or lukewarm water (never boiling otherwise you will make an omelet) and finish the treatment with a normal shampoo.
