Kudos to you siameselouise and your friend! I’ve used the mayo thing before but never its raw ingredients. Nice!!! So, I’m pretty happy with my hair regime and due to my networking with you all lovely MUAs, I now have soft and silky hair that I’ve only dreamed about. Many, many thanks!
I saw this yesterday and said, why not. I have all the ingredients at home and it’s my deep conditioning night so it’s perfect evening to try it. So, very pleased that I tried it. I followed the instructions: whisk egg yolk, add EVOO and honey. Worked it thru my hair…felt kinda funky…then, placed about a tablespoon of mayo. Wrap in plastic and towel and wait for 30 minutes. I was cooking, ladies!! After the kitchen clock’s ding, I rinsed, shampooed, and mild conditioner again. My hair didn’t feel soft as it usually does, even when wet. Hmmm….let it dry…same texture after my Kiehl’s deep conditioner. Nice!! Cheap, really nice!! So, the lesson here is why buy store brand product for nearly $30 when you can get the same result for products that are staple in your kitchen…well, at least in mine. Will have to use up Kiehl’s so I’ll follow Siameselouise’s routine…twice a month and use Kiehl’s the other two weeks in the month. Very please indeed! Many thanks again Siameselouise to you and your friend.

Yes, of course, I was skeptical too. But this simple 3 ingredient concoction is amazing. I have color treated, 50% coarse gray hair and this is the first thing that's actually smoothed it out. I use Pureology Nano shampoo and conditioner, and although it helps, nothing compares to this. I left mine on 2 hours while watching a movie, and I just can't say enough. Like another reviewer, I used no serums or products at all: just shampoo, condition and blow dry. I plan to use this weekly. Thank you so much to the gal who posted this!

Hey... this was awesome. I MUST say, I was definitely skeptical. I think next time I could double the recipie-- my hair is short, but very thick. I also probably didn't leave it on long enough. I only had it on for 20 minutes, then rinsed and then washed and conditioned as usual. I DID sit under the dryer with my conditioner on (which i must admit, I don't typically do, but...) AnYWAY... I love the way my hair feels... very silky smooth. If there are any African-Americans out there reading this contemplating whether or not to try this, I would HIGHLY encourage it. My hair is relaxed and it's now bouncy and shiny. The only other products I used were my handy dandy Biosilk, a little gel my short tapered hair in the back and a little Chi Infusion.

I was drawn to try this product because all of the ingredients are natural, household items and they're pretty accessible. I did one treatment and although it was a bit messy, it was kind of fun to make. It smelled a bit unpleasant and whoever said it smelled like cake batter was sadly mistaken! Just saying, but either way it did a good job of making my hair feel soft and strong. Especially would recommend for ladies with thin, fine hair because it gives it the illusion of looking thicker.
Overall good thing to try because you have very little to lose, all items are common.

Amazing. My hair showed an immediate difference, and remains soft, shiny and manageable. Geat big thanks to SiameseLouise for the receipe.
Note: I have short ( chin length), very thick hair, cut in a Clara Bow type Eton crop. I used half the OO recommended, and it was more than adequate. Short haired ladies will likely less than the recommended amount.

Hello my fellow dames of MUA. I have been looking for that miracle treatment for my fine curly hair that I am desperately trying to grow out super long. I just recently tried the "Coconut Cream Relaxer" (youtube it, it seems to work super well for super curly hair) and thoguh it did leave my hair conditioned, I found the mess irritating beyond belief and I was left wondering if there was something better so that I could avoid having warm yogurt dripping down my face and back... So, I find this egg bomb deal and im like... why not? So I decided to use coconut oil instead of olive oil because I actually did not have any on hand (for the first time in my life D= ) So, I whip up a batch like so 2 egg yolk, 2 tbsp honey and only 2 tbsp coconut oil since I usually add some to my hair later on anyways. I was worried because they egg yolks were cold and coconut oil solidifies at around 70 degrees but it blended just fine and the consistency of the mix coated my hair with no drips! I left it on for 30 min. So, the verdict??? I really like it, wasked it out with an olive oil bar and now im waiting for my hair to dry to see how my curls look. Ill update asap! So far it feels super soft and my curls look like theyre clumping well. ::crosses fingers::
EDIT** Ummm... I think I just found my HG... my hair looks fabulous... Wow... seriously, thanks ladies! I put a smidge of my pomade in my hair and that was it and it looks and feels soooo soft. I really wonder if using either olive or coconut oil makes a diff.

Definitely liked this treatment. I go between using this and Aphogee, which works a little bit better and is easier for me. I have to triple this recipe as my hair is to the middle of my back (it's not thick at all either). Messy to put on but I just wrap it up against my head and wait. Definitely easier than Aphogee, too. You really need to do a deep conditioning treatment after this... I do, anyway. Still, love it!

Awesome! Gives the results of an expensive salon conditioner for cheap, natural/non-chemical items already on hand in my kitchen. I have hair just below my shoulders with a top layer of very thick fine hair which tends to frizz and not go vertical. After the first treatment I noticed my hair was soft, shiny and going more in a vertical direction. I'm on my second treatment now and will continue. The nice thing about this treatment is it seems to really soften my hair and make it shiny without leaving any buildup. I wish it smelled more like cake batter, it does a little bit but i tend to smell the egg more.

Just tried the egg bomb yesterday night, wasn't able to wash out all of the oil with 2 shampoos, but my hair still looks and feels fantastic! Supermodel hair, looks very sleek and healthy. :)

My hair is extremely dry and I just did the egg bomb on my hair. I'm waiting for my hair to air dry as I'm typing this, but the parts that are dry are SUPER shiny, SUPER soft, and extremely manageable!!
My hair has been victim to many years of hair dye, but I've been growing it out so that my natural color will come back in. However, the ends are still really dry and brittle. After doing this egg bomb, my ends are soft and silky!!
I didn't notice any smell, good or bad. I kinda wish I smelled the cake batter smell :D
PLEASE try this at least once! I promise you won't be disappointed :) Plus, it's so inexpensive to make!!!

YAY EGG BOMB! I made a girlfriend give this a try with me so we could both compare results the next day, and you should see our hair! First of all it smells like cake batter, which is awesome. I have very, very long, thick hair, I try to take super good care of it, only use natural dye, but it can be quite unmanageable, so I just keep it in a bun most of the time. I did have to triple the recipe, and it still barely covered all my hair, but it was fun to do! At first I only noticed a silkier texture, but then I wore it down all day. After wearing it down I'm usually close to dreadlocks by the end of the day and have a heck of a time getting a brush through it. But it was barely tangled at all! Easy to brush is a dream come true! Thank you for posting this crucial recipe!

My 1st review on MUA! Just discovered the site recently, & I'm spending way too much time catching up with all the wonderful reviews! Background: fine hair, about 40% gray now (with original dark brown). The gray is coarser, & depending on the humidity, can be frizzy. Do not color or process, but can get dry due to daily blowdry. Anyway, with some apprehension, did this treatment tonight. WOW! Not incredibly messy since it stays put in your hair once you coat it. I also used the suggestion for coating with an additional heaping teaspoon of mayo. I left it on for 30 min. Very easy to shampoo out (I was worried about "poaching" the egg solution!). After shampooing, no smell noted. I'm letting it air dry tonight, but it feels very soft. Looking forward to styling in the morning (I'll shower but not shampoo, use some hoarded Neutrogena conditioning mousse). Definitely plan to make this part of my weekend ritual. Keep up the good work!

Wow is all I can think to say. I had my doubts... major doubts and as I was doing it they just got more intense like what the heck and I doing, this is a huge mess and how is this ever going to even penetrate my hair. Then as I was air drying my hair it looked horrible and kind of frizzy, so I said, screw it, I'm blow drying it the way I normally do and that's when the magic happened! My hair is like silk. I'm not sure my hair has felt this good in 20 years. I usually have orangey looking hair at the bottom where I am growing out many bad hair coloring jobs, but after this is looked shiney and vibrant and I couldn't believe it was my hair. I am so thankful to whomever shared this. This will for sure change my hair. I plan to do it as often as necessary! Thanks so much!

Heres some background info on my hair; its curly and ethnic, a bit on the dry side, frizzy and damaged from dying. When you damage curly hair it often becomes limp; which mine did. the root limpness is also because its getting long and therefore heavy. So my hair can look flat, unhealthy, frizzy and dull all together at any given time (sexy huh?). I also heat style so yeah...I'll try anything in the name of deep conditioning. The Egg Bomb sounded perfect, I had all the stuff on hand and I just took to the attitude "can't hurt, might help" so I tried it. I didnt love the idea of using olive oil on my hair because I thought it might weigh it down and make it greasy but when I mixed it with the honey it looked fine and sure enough when I slopped this onmy dry and unwashed hair the sticky honey kinda neutralized most of the olive oils greasiness! I have long heir, average thick and didnt find I needed to double the mixture. Perhaps extra thick hair might need to. Also you can kinda customize it to you by adding more oil and less honey if you hair is dry and adding more honey and less oil if oilness is a problem for you. I added a touch more honey just for the smell (I love honey). I wrapped my hair in a towel (no plastic wrap) and left it on for a little over 25 mins. When I took the towel off to wash my hair it felt a bit like I had ut glue in it...but once I was washing it in warmish water the mixture just washed out very easily....not sticky, not oily, not funky just so soft! I noticed right away how soft and managable my hair has become, like right away...as I was shampooing infact (Creme Of Nature Ultra Moist in the white and green bottle) and after that I probably could have gone without conditioner but I used a little bit anyway (Aussie Deeeeep) and my hair was just so so nice. I keep swaing soft and manigable and thats an understatement! It wasent weighed down at all. It was smooth and shiny and the least frizzy it has been for years (forever?)...wow! I was a little concerned about it smelling weird so I made me brutally honest boyfriend smell my hair and he said it smelled "good". So as far as The Egg Bomb goes I am a believer. I will be doing this to my hair twice monthly from now on.And also recomending it to friends. family and coworkers. I can't thank SiameseLouise enough for sharing this!

Well I just had to try this seeing as my hair is a frizzy, dried out bush right now.My hair is very thick so i doubled the
recipe and added a little extra honey.Next time I might triple it-my hair is *that* thick.Anyhow, it was a bit messy but fun
to make and felt good going on.I left in on for 30 minutes but as it is so hot here(97 degrees!) I didn't use cling film lest it cook on my head!!!Like 'siameselouise' stated it was very easy to wash out-I then used Herbal Essences Long Term Relationship 'poo and Break's Over conditioner.Even after shampooing I could tell my hair was softer.I usually have a hard time with knots but they seemed to comb out easier.I always use a leave in and shine serum afterwards but didn't this time to see the 'full effects'.....I was happy to find that the EVOO I used left no trace of scent in my hair.I can definitely tell my hair feels thicker(thanks to the egg yolk no doubt)and is seriously soft and shiny.I will definitely be doing this treatment on a regular basis-yay for natural goodies!!!!!!!!
ETA-Now that my hair is completely dry, I am amazed at how soft and shiny it is-with absolutely no product in it at all.....that is truly a first for me-A++++++

I have very long and thick, coarse, color-treated (double-process/permanent dye, wouldn't you know) hair, and I'm constantly searching for a perfect deep conditioner. Even though, at 37, I"m really pushing serious middle age, I want to recapture the super-soft, shiny brunette of my youth! I usually wash with a shampoo for dry/color-treated hair (I use both drugstore products as well as the high-end/from the hairdresser ones) and use a super-deep conditioner (one of those that you leave on for at least 3 min. before rinsing) and follow up with Aussie's leave-in conditioning mousse and a thermal-protection styling serum. Because I also heat-style (some kind of iron--either flat- or curling-; I know, I know, I'm a bad girl and a glutton for punishment), my hair really takes a beating and it needs all the TLC it can get. A friend told me about this recipe, which she calls "The Egg Bomb." Even though I was quite skeptical of the whole thing, I had to admit that her hair's lovely. She, too, abuses her own long hair, but it's super-soft and shiny. I agreed to "Bomb" my own hair one day when visiting her at her home. Here's the recipe:
Whisk together 2 tablespoons olive oil and 1 teaspoon honey (I think I added just a little more). In a seperate bowl, beat the yolk of one egg. Mix the oil/honey emulsion with the egg and saturate your hair. Since I have a lot of long hair (it's nearly to my bra strap), we doubled the recipe--that made the perfect ammount to completely saturate my hair. Leave the whole mixture on for 30 minutes. We wrapped my head in cling wrap (we didn't have a shower cap! I was praying that no unexpected visitors dropped in!) to avoid dripping, but I don't think that this stuff would really drip much, if any. For extra conditioning, my friend says that she occasionally slathers mayonnaise over her hair (on top of the Bomb mixture) for even more conditioning power. After 30 minutes, rinse in cool water; then shampoo and condition as usual.
This left my hair SUPER, SUPER-SOFT, SHINY, and MANAGEABLE!!! I even skipped my mousse and serum--my hair was that good! It hasn't been like this since I was probably 12!!! Despite the stickiness of this stuff, it really was easy to wash out--no scrubbing and scrubbing and scrubbing and negating the moisturizing of the treatment! I have been using L'Oreal's Pro Vive shampoo for dry/color-treated hair and their conditioner for women of color--I probably didn't really need it. I've been Bombing my head once a week/every couple of weeks, and it's never looked or felt better. Even my hairdresser has commented that it's in much better shape. The ingredients are cheap, and everyone probably has them on hand (even I usually do, and I really don't cook!) I recommend this HIGHLY to all!
***Addendum: Hi all, and thanks to everybody who's messaged me about the Bomb! Since I'm MUA freshman, I'm only allotted 10 messages per day, so I'm not intentionally ignoring/snubbing anyone to whom I haven't yet responded! To answer the questions that several people have asked, 1.) Apply the emulsion to DRY, UNWASHED HAIR! I heard from a lovely lady in Italy who more correctly referred to this as a moisturizing pretreatment rather than a conditioner. 2.) After you've finished treating your hair, you will need to WASH, RATHER THAN RINSE, your hair. This mixture is tenacious, so just rinsing with water wouldn't work. However--paradoxically-- it does wash out easily (no need to break out the Comet!) and really doesn't leave your hair smelling of egg. (I made several people bury their noses in my hair, and they couldn't detect anything offensive. I myself haven't picked up any scent other than my shampoo.) 3.) Don't use the entire egg, just the YOLK. Using both it and the white will make the mixture too runny--my friend who shared the recipe with me says that it just won't work as well and will be, and I quote, "a big, slimey mess!"
