Made my hair really soft and moisturized. DIdn't use the egg on purpose because I didn't want the additional protein since I wanted a moisturizing treatment. I didn't shampoo out either because I like the thin film left on my hair overtime I conditioner (you know who it doesn't matter how thoroughly rinsed you hair is it's still there? that's what I meant) and I knew my shampoo would take it out.

I actually forgot to put the egg in, but my hair felt really nice after. I left it in my hair for a little over an hour.

does it have to be applied only on the hair or onto the scalp too?

Good recipe. Gave my hair great slip and smelled awesome. I left it on a little longer than an hour and had to use warm water to rinse due to my low porosity hair. I'll be using this one again. :)
