Stir in both the white and yellow of the egg, add in some herbal powder such as hibiscus powder etc., or choose to apply the raw form of the liquids onto your scalp.

Let it sit there for an hour or so, before you wash it out with luke warm water and a natural shampoo that will not dry out your hair. Egg hair mask is also very helpful for adding that black shine to your hair and this is what you need to do:

Stir in egg white and yellow into a bowl. Add a teaspoon of olive oil and a teaspoon of honey (if you are looking for a natural brown streak in your black hair). You can otherwise avoid honey. Beat this mixture well, apply it your hair scalp and strands. Cover with a shower cap, leave it on for an hour nearly and wash it off with water and shampoo.
