Cooking the egg on OP's head is highly unlikely. (Respectfully, this is my opinion) A shower's temperature averages to about 100-107 degrees Fahrenheit, according to Stanford studies. Additionally, "An egg needs a temperature of 158°F to become firm. In order to cook, proteins in the egg must denature (modify), then coagulate, and that won’t happen until the temperature rises enough to start and maintain the process." In order for this story to be true, OP must really 'fry' their skin, and for a long time when they bathe themselves. And finally, I've done the same thing with steaming water a couple years ago.
I can honestly see myself making this same mistake, so I guess I can't judge.
I've heard the same thing about egg whites so of course I tried it. Buuuut I used cold water to avoid smelling like McDonalds breakfast. It worked pretty well!
I don't know about eggwhites, but mayonnaise makes your hair super shiny. It also helps get sticky stuff (i.e. eggwhites) out. Good luck!
Well, I didn't read the mayonnaise one online. I had some idiot use shoe paint on my hair instead of shoe polish for a musical once, and it took three weeks of looking like I had the weirdest dandruff ever before my mom's hair stylist told her to try lemon juice and/or mayo. The juice made my hair smell awesome (and would have bleached it had I gone outside), but the mayo won the degrossifying battle.
Beware of DIY's, OP. I read olive oil and raw egg would make my hair shiny and help repair it... No. It looked like I hadn't washed my hair in years. I feel where you're coming from, OP.
I've used olive oil in my hair before. The trick is to lather in the shampoo BEFORE adding water to it, otherwise you'll never get the oil out completely and it will look greasy. If done correctly, it does make your hair nice and shiny. (: Nothing wrong with trying to save money. Use what you got!
