I'm not sure the difference shows on the before and after as much as I can feel it. My hair had gotten very very dry, almost straw like (top left) so yesterday I melted down some organic raw coconut oil, added a fresh organic egg and left the mixture (which if you hair is as long as mine is messy as all get out) on for about 40 minutes. Gave it a good wash and "bunned " it overnight. This morning I woke up to soft shiny untangled none strawy hair. Who needs expensive salon treatments? Not this girl...just let me raid my kitchen. Also wondering if adding an essential Oil would have made a difference.
