Homemade Easy Egg Shampoo

Homemade Easy Egg Shampoo

It’s the first homemade shampoo recipe I tried which is actually better than store-bought shampoo. 😀 And it can’t get easier than this to make shampoo!

You need:

  • 1 to 3 eggs depending on your hair length (1 for short hair, 2 or 3 eggs for long hair)

DIY egg shampoo recipe

Beat the eggs by hand or with a mixer until frothy. Distribute the egg foam evenly through the still dry hair. Let the egg shampoo sit for at least 15 minutes in the hair (I tried to not let the egg shampoo sit in the hair before rinsing and it didn’t clean my hair). Then rinse the hair thoroughly with cold water.

I was sceptical at first but this is really the best homemade shampoo: it’s easy and fast to make, and it’s as easy to distribute in the hair as store-bought shampoo. And the hair is so smooth, fluffy and glossy – even if rinsed with hard water!

Here you’ll find my tutorial for Victorian bran & egg shampoo.

  1. I make a paste using raw egg and baking soda. Then rinse clean in cool water and a final rinse in acv/cold water mix. It’s been a miracle for my dry, frizzy, fragile hair ? It doesn’t smell sexy, but sometimes these old school recipes work!

    1. Thanks for sharing your experience with egg shampoo, Stacie! 😀 I actually think my hair smells better after using egg shampoo than after using store-bought shampoos with their artificial fragrances. 😉

  2. ive tried this several times, and it cleans my hair nicely and gives it lots of volume, but it always leaves a sticky residue, especially around the crown of my head, even after ive rinsed it thoroughly. i’m not sure if it’s because my water is too hard or if there’s some other cause… maybe egg shampoo isnt for me ?

    1. Thanks for trying it out! 🙂 I’ve had no problem with a sticky residue so far even if rinsed with hard water. Did you let the egg shampoo sit in your hair for at least 15 minutes? You could also try using more eggs. Or you could try this Victorian bran-egg-soap shampoo. Hope this helps! 🙂

  3. I tried this hair wash and it worked amazingly!
    But how long do you whisk the eggs for? I do it for about five minutes or until fluffy and foamy but there’s always liquid under the foam. Or perhaps that’s how it’s supposed to be! Regardless, I use the liquid anyway, let it set for at least fifteen minutes, wash with cool water, and drip dry my hair. It brings out the shine and makes the colour bright versus the dullness store bought shampoos give. I no longer struggle with dandruff or a flaky itchy scalp and the sores I had from bad shampoos are disappearing. Along with the scalp massage mentioned in a different article, I’m excited to see what my hair will look like in a few months time! I think this will be my go to shampoo now. Much more ethical and environmentally friendly, especially if you have your own chickens!
    Thanks for the recipe! Many times older is better, that’s for sure!

    1. Thanks for trying and glad you like it! 😀 I also beat the eggs until fluffy. And it’s normal that there’s some liquid under the foam. You could also use the eggs without beating if you’re in a hurry but then the egg shampoo is more difficult to distribute in the hair. Hope this helps! 🙂
