    Well described. I have a dry hair and I heard from my sister that egg mask effects on me. But can I replace olive oil with castor oil? Please help me out. Thank you in advance.

      Thank you Jessica for your appreciation.
      Regarding your query: You must use only olive oil with egg mask. This is because, egg yolk has a very high moisture content and is thick, the consistency of castor oil is also very thick. Hence, when the mask will dry off, it will be difficult for you to wash your hair. Excess shampooing to get rid of the mask will in turn lead to hair loss. Therefore, it is advisable to use olive oil only with egg mask. You can use castor oil separately just for oiling purpose.
