Ingredients:

Step 1: Mix and Microwave

Break open vitamin E capsules. Some brands will twist open, while others may need to be broken with a small knife. Place the contents of the capsules into a small, microwave-safe bowl. Add coconut oil, olive oil, and honey. Microwave on high for 15-20 seconds, then stir until the coconut oil completely melts.

Step 2: Add Egg White

Let the mixture cool for a minute or two, then add the egg white. Stir gently until all of the ingredients are well-combined.

Step 3: Apply to Hair

If desired, put on a pair of rubber gloves for this step. Then, apply the mixture to the ends of hair strands, and massage gently. Be careful not to apply the mixture directly on your scalp—especially if you have sensitive skin.

Step 4: Wrap it Up

Wrap your hair in a warm towel. Keep the towel on for 30 minutes to an hour. During this time, your hair may stiffen, but don’t worry, it’s a normal part of the process.

Rinse and Clean

Step 5: Wash well

Remove the towel and step into the shower or bath. Rinse your hair thoroughly with warm water until all of the mixtures have been washed away. Shampoo and condition hair as normal.

Remove the towel and step into the shower or bath.

Step 6: Make it a Routine

For best results, apply the treatment to your hair once every week or two. (You don’t want to use olive oil for hair too often, or your hair will become oily.) Since the mixture contains egg white, discard any excess immediately after use. Make a fresh batch for every treatment.
