#Number One - Eggs in your hair
Eggs - Do they really benefit our hair? Arguments for eggs: -Contains a lot of protein and conditions the hair - Strengthens the hair - Increases thickness - It's natural - Rich in Vitamin A, D and E (vitamin A helps in the production of sebum which works to cure dandruff, vitamin E helps increase the absorption of oxygen and vitamin D helps promote hair growth) - The yolk makes the hair glossy/shiny Arguments against eggs: -It's meant to go in us, not on us. - Doesn't contain hydrolyzed or quanternized proteins (small enough to penetrate hair, less than 2500MW). - Egg protein molecules are too large to repair/change/penetrate the hair. - Doesn't change the condition of the hair - just coats the hair strand. - natural/unprocessed proteins have a negative charge, hair has a negative charge as well, therefore there's no natural attraction to adhere to the hair. - No lasting effect. #Number Two - trimming Makes your hair grow faster Trimming - Does it really make your hair grow faster? Arguments for trimming: - hair stops growing or slows down when cuticle layer thins - trimming triggers new growth -regular trimming can make your hair look longer because the ends of your hair tend to be thinner as they are the oldest parts of your hair so regular trimming makes the ends appear thicker and therfore more visible = longer looking hair Arguments against trimming: - your hair folicles determine how fast and how long your hair grows - trimming does not affect this #Number Three - you can 'Repair' damaged hair Can damaged hair be repaired? Put simply - no. Products that claim to repair split ends or repair damaged hair are lying to you. Damaged hair is damaged forever. Products can only alter theappearance of damaged hair. So please don't try to 'save' split ends because they can travel up the hair strand and damage the whole strand if not cut off early.
