Egg Whites bring in Curls

by

Hair is one thing that always seems to astonish me. There are so many ways that you can do it, and different styles to wear. Not every style is for everyone but I had a friend in high school who showed me a trick that I am sharing with you today. The best part about it, is that it literally takes minutes. It is fast and easy to do when you are on the run. This is my go-to-hairstyle in a pinch.

First you will need two eggs, a bowl, hairspray, gel, and a diffuser. These items will ensure that your hair will hold those scrunched curls longer. I do most of my hair in the shower. Since I can’t post that, wink wink, I did my hair a little bit differently. I started by grabbing the two eggs and a bowl. I cracked the egg but was careful not to let any of the yolk fall into the bowl. Look at the picture and see how the entire yolk is still in the egg. That is what you want or you may end up smelling like rotten egg! :)

I bring the bowl into the shower with me and place it where water wont get into the bowl. One side note is that I always brush my hair before I get into the shower so that I don’t have tangles in the way of my curls. After washing my hair, I use my fingers to run through my hair to separate my hair and make sure that I still don’t have any tangles. If I do, I fix them before moving on.

Turn off the water, and grab your bowl. Start spreading the egg whites throughout your hair. Remember to stay away from your roots as you don’t want them to look greasy. The egg whites should be put in the front, back, and sides of your hair while scrunching. I add a little gel afterward on top of the egg whites and you are pretty much done. You should already see your hair looking crimped or curly.

All of this is done in the shower. Once I leave I get a towel and wrap my hair to get out the access water. It helps me dry my hair faster and keeps the time down.

When I am ready to do my hair, the diffuser will help me keep the crimps and curls in place. This literally only takes minutes to complete.The final touch is adding a little hairspray to make sure that I don’t have too many flyaways.

The look is great and I always get lots of compliments. The best part is that from the shower to my finished hair, I am down in less than 30 minutes, and as you can tell from my photos, that is saying a lot. Good luck and I hope that you share your photos with me as well!

    This is so interesting! You don’t rinse out the egg whites at all?

  2. April says:

    Will this still work without the hair dryer? I try to do no heat most of the time.

    I have completely straight hair and I’ve used egg whites and a diffuser to get my hair curly…works wonderfully! The only thing I did differently is I whipped up the egg whites with a hand mixer until they were light and fluffy then put it in my damp hair like a gel. I’ll have to try it this way too. :)

  4. Jessica says:

    Can I just tell you how nice it is to see someone else with semi-curly/semi-wavy long, THICK hair?

    Everyone seems to love my curls when I can 1) get my hair curly and 2) keep it curly…but they don’t realize it usually takes 60+ mins to get the look. My hair is so thick that the longer it gets, the less it curls. However, after seeing this post, I am PSYCHED about trying this method. Your hair is longer than mine and I’m hopeful that if you can get these curls, then I can too :)

    Thanks for a great post!

    So cool. I had no idea . . .

  6. Becca Becca says:

    Totally tried it yesterday- holy curls, Batman! Love it!

    • Bethany says:

      So you don’t rinse out the egg whites? Or do you? I’m confused. I really want to try this but I’m afraid that I might come out smelling like eggs.

      • Becca Becca says:

        Nope, you don’t rinse out the egg whites. The egg yoke is the stinky part- so as long as you don’t get any yoke in your hair- you shouldn’t smell at all. :) Let us know how it works.

  7. Does this work for those who already have curly hair? I love my curls, but they can be quite unruly sometimes!

  8. Marcela K. says:

    I have naturally curly hair also and it’s about the same length as yours, but my curls don’t look as defined as yours, so I’ll have to give this a try! One thing I’ve done for years is I take my hairbrush into the shower with me. After I condition my hair, I brush my hair to get the conditioner throughout my hair and to detangle my hair. Once I’m done showering and the water is turned off, I brush my hair again with my head down and squeeze the excess water out with my hands, brush it again, and then I “whip” my hair 2 or 3 times. I then use a leave-in defining curl conditioner (I will try the egg whites next time though) and then I wrap my hair in a towel, and then dry it when I’m ready to. Thanks for the tip! I look forward to trying it out!

  9. MaryAnn Bench says:

    I second the whipping idea. The egg whites are easier to work with when they are whipped and then you just apply like a mousse. I have found I use a LOT less this way, I use only one egg and I have some left over.

    Love this soo much fun!!! What I love about egg whites is that they are natural, easy, and proven to work, you can’t go wrong! Love all the cute pictures of you too!!! xox

  11. Megan says:

    Definitely want to try this – but what does your hair feel like after you’re done? I love the defined curl look, but hate when my hair is hard/sticky.

  12. courtney walker says:

    been working on how to do my hair for prom, and i think you just solved my biggest problem. Now my hair will be ready to put half up, or in an elegant bun. Thanks!

  13. Jalane says:

    may seem like a silly question, but does it make your hair smell?

  14. megha says:

    my hair straight after do this but my hair is shining and very beautiful now……………………………

  15. Stephanie says:

    I have curly hair and try not to wash it to frequently with the eggs can you get a couple days between washing or do you need to wash the next day

  16. Kate says:

    I hope this works with short hair – I have a chin length bob and I’m going to give this a try soon!

  17. Chelsea says:

    I love this idea and am NOT afraid to put egg in my hair lol! But are the curls soft? I don’t like crunch in my hair :/

  18. Amber says:

    I’m African American with 3c curls and this works! Pros are that you will get super defined curls egg whites hold better than any gel I’ve used. Cons are super crunchy hair. I use Argan oil and/or olive oil flip my hair over and scrunch to help with that. Also it’s super flaky but you can use a leave in conditioner on top of it to get rid of that. Garnier has a great leave in for curly girlies. This has made my hair thicker and less frizzy.
