Try this egg-cellent winter conditioning tip
By D. H Foreman
Eggs are so nutritious that they are often referred to as the perfect food. One whole egg contains an amazing range of nutrients including Vitamins B12, B2, B5, A and Selenium.
Eggs also contain small amounts of calcium, iron, potassium, zinc, manganese, Vitamin E, Folate and much more.
Not only are eggs wonderfully nutritious they can help with winter-worn hair.
When the weather starts to change so does our hair. During the colder months you might see a few flakes on your scalp or throughout your hair.
“It’s not actually dandruff it is dry skin,” said Scott Faber of Scott & Co in Comfort. “Our bodies and hair get dryer during the winter months and our scalp does, too.”
Faber says that by preparing a mask for your scalp it will help in the prevention of dry skin. Select any conditioner and add egg whites to it to form a paste and then add honey to this paste. Work the paste into the scalp and hair and leave in for 10 minutes. Make sure to shampoo twice after.
Try this method every couple of days to keep flakes from appearing on your clothing.
The good news about winter weather for your hair is that the color does not fade as quickly and there is no need to shampoo every day.
Faber also announced that Deb Hidalgo is joining the Scott & Co. team on March 1. She will be there during the week and Faber will be available on the weekends. You can contact Hidalgo directly at (210) 373-0275. She will be available by appointment only.
