Did you ever want to wash your hair with an eggnogg? Then this might be the shampoo recipe for you!
- 1 egg yolk
- 120 ml wine
- 60 ml water
Beat the solution; then use it like ordinary shampoo.
(The original Edwardian recipe calls for red wine, but I had a bottle of white wine open, so I’ve used white wine.)
The shampoo smells strongly of wine; even the dried hair smells of wine. It was difficult to distribute the shampoo on the scalp because the shampoo is so watery. Maybe adding some natural thickener, such as linseeds or chia seeds, would make the shampoo easier to handle. While washing the hair, the wine burnt a bit on my scalp. I found the shampoo has some cleaning power, but not enough. Maybe if I would use 2 egg yolkes the next time, it would clean the hair thoroughly. However, the egg shampoo made the hair smooth and shiny, and very easy to comb.
