If you want stronger hair that won't break and will grow long and healthy, then you need to include protein in your diet.
Eggs are an excellent source of protein, as well as another hair-loving vitamin called biotin.
Biotin helps to prevent hair loss and thicken your strands, as well as stimulate new growth at the roots. As your hair grows out, you will notice that it looks and feels much fuller and softer.
Aside from eating them, try an egg protein mask by whipping up an egg or 2 with some olive oil and applying all over your hair. Leave for 20 minutes before washing your hair as usual. Do this only once every 3-4 weeks, as too much protein can actually cause brittle locks.
