Sure Wendy. If you have oily hair go for it but if you have dry hair, I would recommend you to add a tsp of yogurt, castor oil or even coconut oil 🙂 You can also add banana to it and make banana and egg hair mask. Hope this helps 🙂
Can I just use egg white and lemon?
I have seen wonderful results when I applied hair masks twice a week. So I would recommend you to use the hair mask of your choice once every 15 days.
You can apply hair masks whenever you prefer. No need to do hair spa every time. 🙂
am prasanna from hyderabad,
Can I apply hair masks every week?
And Should we apply banana egg mask only while doing hair spa?
Not at all. I have been using it for long time now. Haven’t faced any such issues. But if you are nt comfortable, just skip the ingredient.
