I'm sure there are many culinary delights that could be made with the use of vinegar and eggs. Alone or together...but I have chosen to go another route. What you may ask?
My hair wash! Yup, you read right. I finally did it last night. I had been reading over at www.inashoe.com/ about her trials with going w/o the shampoo and conditioner. She has been using baking soda and apple cider vinegar for a rinse, but found that her hair would still get a bit greasy after a couple of days. So a reader suggested eggs.
Well we've been using organic shampoo and conditioner for quite awhile and it does get pricey! When we first switched. I cut way back on washing my hair. I've found over the year I only need to wash it twice a week, but I would still condition every day. So this helped to keep cost down a bit.( A hairstylist friend told me that we really don't need to wash it every day and that it strips our hair.) So what I would do is rinse my hair with warm water give my scalp a good scrub w/o shampoo and then condition.
Well last night was my night to wash. I tend to get a bit more oil up near the root line by the last day and when I try to brush it down it doesn't turn out all silky and shiny like I thought. So I put the egg in and gave a vigorous scrub. I then rinsed with luke warm water. (I only like scrambled eggs on my plate.) I made sure to rinse really well. Then I took the apple cider and massaged it in (remember not to open your eyes- does it smart!) and rinsed with cool water.
Results: When I first got out I didn't have that nice soft slippery feeling that I have with the man made stuff. I was able to comb through it with no problem (very nice). I could smell a faint smell of apple/marshmallows (no I wasn't eating peeps). This morning (after exercise) I rinsed my hair again and let it air dry. It is so much thicker than it used to be (and I have thick hair)!
The oil that I get up at the root line is gone and I feel clean.
I will definitely experiment more and even try the baking soda!
Just in case anyone was interested.
