How to Make Salon Style Protein Hair Masks

Protein products can repair damage and strengthen the hair shaft, but too much protein makes hair brittle and causes breakage. A salon style protein hair mask is formulated to provide the benefits of protein but they usually cost a pretty penny at the salon. Make a protein hair mask at home that works as well or better than one you get from a salon and that is safe for your hair.


Difficulty: Easy

Things You’ll Need:

1 whole egg
2 teaspoons olive oil
Shower cap or plastic wrap


Crack an egg into a bowl and whisk until the egg yolk and white are blended. Both the yolk and the white contain protein. Together they provide the base for your hair mask.


Add 2 teaspoons olive oil to the egg protein mask mixture.


Blend the protein hair mask mixture thoroughly.


Apply the protein hair mask evenly to the hair and work it into your mane. Coat the full length of your hair.


Cover your hair with a shower cap or plastic wrap to seal in the moisture content of the protein hair mask while it soaks into the hair and scalp. The amino acids in the egg repair damage and breakage while the oil softens and conditions both the hair and scalp.


Rinse the protein hair mask out of your hair completely.


Style your hair as normal.


Repeat the application of this protein hair mask twice a month for strong, shiny hair and a well conditioned scalp.

Prevention is better than cure
