Take two egg yokes ¼ cup of water, beat the mixture together and massage through hair well. Put on a plastic cap for thirty minutes, and rinse thoroughly with warm water (not hot). Make sure all of the egg solution is rinsed from the hair (do not use shampoo). Dry your hair and style as usual. Taken From Braids & Beauty Magazine
