Another of the Many Uses for those WoNdErFuL Eggs

All of my 6 chooks are Working Girls now.  I have 2 Elderly Dames as well, one is still producing and the other, well, she is enjoying retirement.  Egg overabundance can really be a mind stretcher - what to do with those extra eggs?  I hate to waste them, and what we don't eag, bake with, or sell need to be put to a good usable use!  What to do, what to do.....?

Here's a great idea - a beauty recipe for your hair.  Holidays are fast approaching, and if your mane, short or long, needs a little conditioning, this may be just the thing!

Deep Conditioning Egg Treatment
How it works: Eggs are rich in protein, a component of hair, so eggs restore and nourish your strands. Eggs are also renowned as one of nature's best moisturizers.
  1.  2 egg yolks
  2. 2 teaspoons of olive oil 
  3. 1/8 cup of water. 
You may want to double or halve these amounts, depending on the length and texture of your hair.  Mix well, applying to hair after shampooing. Leave the mixture on for at least 15 minutes. Rinse well with water.  No other conditioner needed!  Use this treatment once a week for continued results.

I love fresh eggs. I really, really want to get chickens for our place in the spring. Right now, I buy a dozen every week from a co-worker! Love the hair recipe!

I might have to give that a try one day when I have time. I have to use conditioner everyday.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Great way to use an egg that doesn't involve salt and pepper! I will try.

Great idea. I made a boo boo grocery shopping this week and bought eggs I didn't need. I made a big quiche this morning to use some up.

I remember reading about something like that - eggs are supposed to be great for your hair.

Do you make your own mayo? That takes a Lot of eggs.

I wish I had extra eggs to try this! My ladies aren't laying right now. They've just been through a molt.

I did have a visual of me in a 6 inch mohawk made with an egg yolk that was left to harden!!! LOL

If my chickens ever start laying again I will have to give this a try!

As I don't have chickens, I never have extra eggs, but I find this recipe intriguing.

Thanks for stoppin' by my blog and encouraging me on my Etsy shop. I've been told by a friend it takes a while to get it rolling and to keep networking and stuff, so I am, but it's hard to be patient sometimes.
