Default egg wash

Sorry I'm kinda new to this but what is a egg wash? Also can someone explain why and how you egg wash your hair?

using an egg with some oil is for a protein treatment. I whip up an egg with oil and slather it on my DRY hair. I let it sit for about 45 mins then co-wash then ACV rinse. A lot of fine hair girls do well with protein treatments. Coarse hair, not so much.

I do it as a protein treatment, but also because my scalp really likes it. When started co-washing my scalp was quite itchy, but after an egg wash that went away. So now I do it once a month or so.

*special note* if you're going to use an egg in your hair make sure to rinse with cool water. If you use hot water it can "cook" the egg and you'll have a hard time getting bits and pieces of egg out of your hair!

Still it's a good protein treatment.

ok so I think i'm gonna have to try this but before I do my hair has been extremely frizzy lately, and I thought that maybe a protein treatment could be the answer. Do you think this is a fair assumption or should I try something else.

Every time I do an egg treatment, it makes my hair shiny and less frizzy. Try it out.
