Eggs are considered the perfect source of protein, as they contain all the essential nutrients that are required for building muscles and bones. However, they are also great for hair, helping it to grow thicker and denser.

While people usually avoid the bright yellow part of the egg – known as egg yolk – it contains a lot of nutrition. Egg yolk when applied externally as a hair pack can help in hair growth and banish commonly found hair problems, including hair loss and hair fall.

In this blog, we explain the various benefits of egg yolk for hair and why you should consider using egg yolk for dry hair.

How Do I Use Egg Yolk on My Hair?

Use Egg Yolk on My Hair

While many of us usually eat the egg whites and avoid egg yolk, it has been proven by scientific evidence that most of the nutrients are concentrated within the yellow part, although the protein content may be evenly distributed throughout the egg.

However, if you are thinking of applying egg as a hair mask, you should not miss out on the egg yolk. Egg yolks can condition your hair naturally, add luster to your mane, enhance hair growth, resist hair loss, prevent scalp and hair dryness, and even make brittle hair stronger. Here’s how you should use the egg yellow for your hair:

Method 1:

Mix 2-3 tablespoons of egg yolk with 4-5 tablespoons of aloe vera juice in a bowl. Add 1 tablespoon of lukewarm olive oil to it. Starting from your roots, apply this mask all over your hair. After keeping it for 30 minutes, rinse your hair with cool water.


A combination of these 3 ingredients will not only leave your hair feeling soft and smooth but will also nourish the scalp with nutrients essential for hair regrowth.

Method 2:

Whisk 1 egg and mix it with 1 tablespoon of lemon juice and 3-4 tablespoons of curd. Now apply it on your scalp gently and let it stay for an hour. Wash your hair with a mild shampoo and cold water.


Eggs and curd together make a great combination to strengthen your hair and roots. The mixture is a natural hair fall treatment. It is an organic way to moisturize your hair within and also helps in adding volume to the hair.

Method 3:

Beat 2 eggs and mix it with 1 tablespoon of onion juice. Apply the mixture to your hair, starting from the very root. Leave it for 30 minutes and then rinse it with cold water.


Onion juice is a rich source of Sulphur which helps in promoting hair growth by stimulating the scalp. Sulphur boosts collagen production thereby improving blood circulation, ensuring that your follicles are well nourished.

Does Egg Yolk Help in Hair Growth?

Egg yolk is a superfood that can boost hair health. Eating egg yolk for hair growth is recommended as yolks contain a lot of rich nutrients, such as vitamins A and E, biotin and folate – which are excellent for hair growth. They prevent hair loss, improve hair texture and shine, and give strength to brittle hair.

The most common nutritional deficiency in the world is that of ‘iron’. Egg yolks are rich in iron that promotes the growth of new cells. Finally, the vitamins found in egg yolk also prevent hair damage.

There are also many benefits of applying egg yolk on hair. Egg yolk for dry hair is also equally good. Yolks moisturize the scalp and the hair strands. When mixed with coconut oil or olive oil, yolks help in retaining moisture.

Can Eggs Yolks be Used for Dry Hair?


Egg yolk for dry hair works like a conditioner. A lot of hair conditioners are actually made from artificial egg protein to boost hair growth and prevent dryness. Apply egg yolk regularly to improve hair texture. If you have an allergic reaction while eating eggs, then try applying egg as a conditioner for dry hair. Regular usage of egg yolks can make the hair silky and shiny.

Can You Leave Egg Yolk in Your Hair Overnight?

You can certainly leave egg yolk overnight as this would allow for the protein in the egg yolks to penetrate more deeply into the hair strands. You can apply egg yellow for hair overnight and wear a shower cap to prevent the eggs from dripping onto your bedsheets. While it is true that your bed sheets may smell a bit, that is, however, a small price to pay for beautiful, luscious hair, isn’t it?

How Often Should I Use Egg Yolk in My Hair?

While both egg yolks and egg whites help hair grow, to improve hair health, you should concentrate more on egg yolks. Apply egg yolk for dry hair and watch it grow in weeks. For combination hair too the benefits of applying egg yolk on hair are immense.

However, eggs should not be used more than once a week. You should use it as a hair mask for both scalp and hair and then wash it with cool water to get rid of both the stench and the residue. For a good clean and detox, you can use just the egg whites.

What Can I Mix With Egg for Hair?

There are a lot of benefits of egg yolk on hair when applied as is. However, you can mix several supplements to boost hair growth, strengthen your hair care regimen and improve general hair health. Using egg yolks for hair is better and easier than eating eggs for people with certain health issues.

This is because egg yolks contain cholesterol, which may shoot up your existing cholesterol and triglycerides level.

If you are a heart patient or suffer from any sort of heart disease, you might want to be careful about eating eggs. However, egg yolk for hair growth doesn’t need to involve ingesting it. Apply it as a hair mask with coconut or olive oils or natural yogurt to make your hair strands silky smooth.

Why Do Some People Have Thick Hair?

Some people have thicker hair follicles and therefore have thicker hair than others. Factors such as genetics, age and hormones influence hair thickness. But there is an easy way to achieve hair thickness – using egg yolks as a hair mask. Regular usage of egg yolks for hair can make them appear thicker and stronger.

I am honestly thankful to Advanced Hair Studios. I suffer from a hair-pulling disorder. There is this constant urge to pull off your hair follicles. It is painless when you pull but extremely painful when you see a missing patch on your scalp. But, I feel blessed with AHS hair fall treatment. I can see baby hair growing. It’s been two weeks. All I can see is low hair fall.

I have done my hair transplant surgery in AHS Delhi Branch on 2019 by travelling to Delhi from Dhaka, Bangladesh. The front and the back portion of my head were bald and through the hair transplant surgery, they have managed to cover the front portion of my head and the former appearance of my face returned back. The way they collected hairs from the donor portion did not affect my donor area at all. I am quite happy with my result. I have been consulting with them for a second seating so that they can cover the back portion of my head as well so that the hair density on top will increase and the bald portion of my head will reduce to a minimum level.
