Egg and Lemon Hair Mask For Healthy Hair
Just like with oily skin, egg white controls sebum secretion in the scalp by tightening the hair follicles. This will reduce the amount of sebum secreted by the hair follicles and remove excess oils from your scalp and hair. What’s more is that egg white contains lysozyme, an active enzyme that kills off bacteria and germs. Lemon juice, on the other hand, has an added bonus of antiseptic properties that fight bacteria and dandruff.
