Pray for me! I just put an egg in my hair!

Seriously?  Seriously? I just put raw egg in my hair.  No, I have not gone mad; at least not yet!  The quest for healthy, shiny hair eludes those of us who have color processed hair.  I will never forget; as I sat in a seminar hosted by the company I worked for at the time.  We were sitting in an auditorium at the Mandalay Bay Resort in Las Vegas, and this girl steps on stage and begins to speak.  At first I listened intently and then she turned and walked toward the back of the stage.  A co-worker noticed it at the same time, HER hair!  It was perfect in every way, it was like nothing I had ever seen.  She was talking about how as a heart patient she climbed Mount Everest and it all just blurred as I stared at her hair.  How rude, right?  Long-story now not so short... I have been trying to find the right mix to get this look for years.  So, when I see an all natural tip in a magazine or blog about an at home treatment I am willing to give it a shot.  This month in an issue of Oprah Magazine I read a little  blurb by Mathilde Thomas- co founder of the Caudalie Skincare line and I thought I would give it a whirl.  As, I sit here composing this blog post I have a mixture of 1 raw egg yolk, rum, olive oil, and grapeseed oil on my head, wrapped in a warm towel.  I am supposed to leave it on for 30 minutes and rinse for super shiny hair!  I will let you know how it goes... If you want to try it out here is the recipe
Mix together
1 raw egg yolk
2 Tablespoons Rum
2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
2 Tablespoons Grapeseed Oil
Massage into hair and scalp, wrap in a warm towel, wait 30 minutes and rinse.
