Hair mask with castor oil

I used to put few drops of castor oil on my eyelashes and eyebrows to give them shine and beautiful look. Castor oil has been known since Cleopatra times. It has a high fat content and is slowly absorbed by skin. It is perfect for massage, lip balms and hair treatments. It has been also known as a mild laxative.


I have been using this hair mask for some time and always been very pleased with results. It is very simple and you need only few ingredients. Mix egg yolk with two spoons of castor oil, add squeeze of lemon, you can add a drop of honey if you like. Use two egg yolks for longer hair. Mix all for a smooth paste and apply to your hair. Cover with foil or shower cap and leave for at least 20 minutes. Wash and rinse as usual. Your hair will regain shine and egg yolk will provide an excellent nourishment.


The remaining egg white you can use for a face mask, as it has great lifting properties. See next post.
