Protein Hair Mask! 2 simple ingredients that will leave your hair soft, shiny & frizz free! My hair felt amazingly nourished, super soft & shiny after leaving this on for just 20 minutes:) This mask contains ' #EGG ' that is a good source of protein, fatty acids, potassium, vitamins A, D & B12, calcium.. And ' #YOGURT ' which has lactic acid that helps strip away product build up & give u gorgeous healthy shine! ✨.. I suggest doing this in the bathroom & draping your shoulders with a towel as this could get a bit messy during application. Wait for 20 minutes, then rinse with cold water. Thereafter follow up with your shampoo & conditioner. Give it a go! Your tresses will thank you for it :).. #FatgreenjournalRecommends. #mask #hairmask #haircare #naturalhairmask #hairlove #healthyhair #cleanse #nourishment #deepcondition #proteinhairmask #egghairmask #eggandyogurt #protein #wellness #health #love #life #allnatural #shine #soft #healthy #antifrizz #frizzfree #ecobeauty #greenliving #beauty #fatgreenjournal
