Egg Protein, Tea Rinses And Garlic Conditioner Tutorials For Shedding and Breakage

DIY Egg protein treatment

So we are approaching the yuletide season which means great food, great parties and frigid temperatures. For some of us, this is the time when we wear our hair out; blow outs, flat irons you name it.

Knowing the effect the elements can have on our hair  as well as the consequence of some of our styling options, we’ll be making sure that we cover up to protect the precious inches we achieved.

But even with some of the stringent precautionary measures against the elements, some of you might still battle dry brittle hair that’s breaking off every time you turn around.

We know this can be quite frustrating and for this reason we have decided to remind you of some of the steps you can take by providing tutorials that address the problems of shedding and breakage.

Tea Rinses

Tea rinses are great for stopping shedding. Many ladies have had positive results using tea rinses to stop their shedding totally or cut it down significantly.


Applied directly  to the scalp, the caffeine in the tea will stimulate hair growth while strengthening the hair follicles. Here is one YouTuber’s version of a tea rinse using black tea.

Protein Treatments

A protein treatment may be the fix you need to repair weak damaged hair. Having looked at the different types of protein, you should have made your decision about which option is best for you.

A protein treatment can leave your hair feeling soft as it fills in the gaps in the weak areas of the hair structure to allow your hair to mend. Needless to say, it is vital in any long hair growth journey.

About Marsha Buchanan


As a Jamaican girl raised in a devout church family headed by my mother, I have always had my natural hair, no chemical processing. After years of mistreating it , often ignorant of that fact, I began my healthy hair journey in January 2013 in fact, I have seen to it that my entire household falls in line where this is concerned. When I am not poring over some hair blog or forum I spend my time teaching English to rowdy high school students (ok maybe I have some little sweethearts in the mix), mothering the most adorable two year old on this globe, or rushing to meet the deadline for a writing project on Elance. In my spare time I enjoy a stroll along the beach with my doting husband.

      Hi Leah Bowden. To do a tea rinse you may:
      1. Brew 1-3 teabags in 5 cups of hot water and allow it to cool. For high caffeine teas stick with just 1 teabag.
      2. Section your hair and twist in preparation for your wash.
      3. You can use a color applicator bottle or a spray bottle to douse your scalp with the tea, or simply pour the mixture through your scalp using a jug.
      4. Let it sit for 2-5 minutes if the tea you use contains high levels of caffeine but there is no harm in leaving the ones with a low caffeine concentration in for up to 30 minutes if you wish.
      5. Shampoo and DC as usual. Conditioning is very important because teas have a tendency to leave hair feeling dry so do not use a tea rinse at the very end of your wash cycle. – See more at: https://blackhairinformation.com/hair-care-2/hair-treatments-and-recipes/tea-rinses-benefit-hair/3/#sthash.6gIpAXry.dpuf

    Wasn’t this the same site that said egg protein and mayonnaise does nothing for hair because the hair shaft is unable to absorb the size of the egg protein?
