Default Question?

I used one egg and mixed a little natures gate awapuhi conditioner with it and left it on for 20 minutes. My hair is straw like. My hair is fine, normal elasticity and normal porosity. What happened??

Do any if you think I should do a DT with Shea Moisture Deep Treatment Masque?

Too much protein, not enough moisture. Yes, you need to DT, you can still do PT's when you need them but definitely do at least a regular conditioner after.

The protein of eggs won't penetrate the hair shaft because its molecular weight is too large. Most likely, something else was the culprit.

Agree egg protein is too large to penetrate.
