Little Things That Make My Life Easier-Part 1
Egg white and olive oil hair mask aka Humidity Be Gone.
Coming from comparatively zero humidity in Melbourne to an average 85% in Byron, my wavy sometimes curly, short hair is freaking the heck out. A friend at work gave me the perfect trick.
- In small glass jar, break one egg white, add a tablespoon of olive oil.
- Screw on lid and shake like nobody is watching.
- Apply to hair.
- Leave in hair for 20 minutes (or three eps of Mad Men).
- Wash it out well in a COLD shower, ‘cause ain’t nobody got time for scrambled hair.
I jumped straight in the surf and by the time I was home, my hair was super shiny and had curled into perfect beachy ringlets.
Authors note: there are few times in ones life where you may find yourself laughing out loud at your own expense. Trying to neatly apply a sticky egg white mixture to your hair over a sink may be one of them. Neatly being the key word. Embrace the ridiculousness.
