Raw Eggs Grew My Hair Fast: Here's My Historical Hair Care Secret

After going down an historical fashion rabbit hole a while back, I eventually entered the realm of historical hair care practices, which lead to many recipes including today’s magic ingredient – raw egg.

I have been using raw eggs to wash my hair now for approximately a year, so I was a little surprised to learn that I had adopted a Victorian hair care routine, without even knowing it.

In this video, I explain why I started using raw egg in my hair in the first place, along with how I wash my hair. I also show off my handsewn 1880s Victorian bathing suit a little bit!

For the thumbnail, I decided to go to great lengths, even cracking a raw egg on my head which was a bit shocking.

I hope you enjoy this fun little video that hopefully proves to be at least somewhat educational.

Do you clean your hair with any strange household items?

Thank you so much for watching, and see you all on Thursday for another video.

Yours, etc.
