I’ve always wanted to have very thick, full, and long hair. It seems some are just lucky and have it naturally, but for me, I do quite a few things to make my hair thicker and longer. This overnight hair growth mask is definitely one of my “go to” ways to increase hair growth!
This hair growth mask is easy to make and very inexpensive too! You only need 3 ingredients.
It is very effective at boosting hair growth. Many say that they see results with improved hair growth in less than 3 months of using the ingredients regularly!
Not only, is this hair growth mask great for growing thicker and longer hair, it also helps moisturize hair, reduce frizz and leave your hair shiny and soft.
You will see great results after using the hair growth mask consistently after a week and full results after using it for 3 months.
How this Overnight Hair Growth Mask Works:
The main ingredients in this overnight hair growth mask are eggs, olive oil and coconut oil. The combination of these 3 ingredients gives you benefits from each as they are absorbed into your scalp to boost hair growth.
Some use only egg whites and some use the whole egg. After much research, using the whole egg has more benefits as the yolk contains many nutrients that can improve hair growth in addition to the contents of the egg white.
This combination of ingredients in the overnight hair growth mask contain a high amount of protein which helps increase hair growth and make your hair stronger to prevent breakage. Eggs also contain a good amount of sulphur and zinc, which also promote hair growth.
The olive oil and coconut oil are moisturizing and contain vital nutrients including mono-unsaturated fatty acids which help stop hair loss and prevent hair breakage. These two oils have also been found to increase the thickness of hair.
Who Should Use it:
If you’re looking to increase hair growth, make your hair longer or thicker, this overnight hair growth mask is definitely for you! Applying it several times a week will help your hair grow faster and thicker. Just make sure you’re pretty consistent with using it to get the best results.
How Long Will it Take to See Results from the Hair Mask?
If you apply the hair mask regularly at least several times a week, you can expect to see results in a month to three months. For me, it took about 2 months to notice a change in hair growth.
How to Make the Overnight Hair Growth Mask:
What You Need:
- 2 eggs
- 1 teaspoon olive oil
- 1 teaspoon coconut oil
1. Before applying the overnight hair growth mask, use your fingers to massage scalp for 5 minutes. This increases circulation to the area and boosts blood flow to help encourage hair growth.
2. Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl and stir well.
3. Use your fingers to apply the mixture all over your scalp. Massage it into your scalp to ensure it is fully absorbed.
4. Leave on for several hours or preferably, overnight.
5. When you wake up, shampoo out the mask. I use castile soap as shampoo which is all natural and does not contain any ingredients that can cause hair loss or hair breakage.
How Often Should You Apply the Overnight Hair Growth Mask?
Apply the hair mask 2 to 3 times a week to get the most benefits. On the other nights, I use a combination of these hair growth strategies.
Here’s my before and after pictures. My hair is noticeably thicker and the thinning section near the back of my head has improved. Now, I have to be honest, my before picture was taken just over a year ago and I have tried other remedies in the mean time. I included links to those at the bottom of this post. I also gained weight and have been taking prenatal vitamins too. I have been very consistent with using this mask though, so I do feel it contributed the most to my good results. My hair is also shinier and less frizzy. I also got rid of my bouts of dandruff from using it as well.
Other Ways to Increase Hair Growth
There are many other great natural and effective ways to increase hair growth. I wrote a post about a study that found how applying onion juice to your scalp significantly increases hair growth. Many have commented on the post over the past few years that the onion juice really does work and made a difference for them!
Do I half to have my hair up in a ponytail or anything like that overnight if I have the mask in my hair?
Can I use bertoli Oliv oil on hair with this mask?
Yes, that would work.
I was told that leaving masks in your hair overnight rather than just an hour and a half does no difference to the hair since it can only take it so much vitamins and protein at once. Why is your recommended amount overnight?
The mixture can still penetrate your hair throughout the night. I notice a difference from just using it for 30 minutes vs as an overnight mask.
Do we put the mask onto wet or dry hair?
Great question. I put it on my hair when it’s dry.
my hair is terrible
I have the same problem with my hair. After yess of bleaching and colouring. I have been using Ayumi hair growth oil and it works a treat.
Please help. My hair has always been my pride and joy. I figured since it is pretty damn healthy, it could deal with some bleach damage. And I figured the master stylist who did all the color-corrections would know how much would be too much. I was wrong, and now I want to burst into tears every time I look at my hair or touch it. I just don’t know what to do. My hair has also NEVER been shorter than this and it breaks and falls out. What should I do to regrow hair?
Have you considered seeing a naturopath? They may be able to help determine if there’s an underlying cause like hypothryoid etc.
I have use this hair mask eggs and olive oil for over a month and I see my hair getting longer, my friends and family specially my partner was surprised my hair growth so fast, I also notice my split damage hair no longer shows, it turns into very shiny and smooth and no freezy no more but lately I felt thingly and itchi on my scalp, I am hopping this is a sign for more hair to growth, I have very thin hair and I have lost a lots of hair due to chemical I have use before plus hair extensions I’ve been apply for almost 10 years to cover my hair lost, those hair extensions do look good but also has made my hair become worse, now I don’t need the extensions hair anymore and I am going to wait 2 more months and hope I will get to where I was in young days.
Hi Ida, I’m so glad to hear the hair mask has helped 🙂
I woul honestly change the blonde first and foremost. U need to put pigment back into your hair first. Then try the masks to encourage the moisturizing and nuetralizing your hair oils.
You’re only supposed to put egg mask in your hair once a month due to the protein content.
For me, it worked significantly the first time I used it. My hair grew a centimeter in just 3 days. Now it still shows results, but not a significant.
Beautiful hair! If i had hair problems i would definitely try it. Several months ago i started drinking Dr. Axe’s bone broth protein powder (chocolatr flavor). I drink it daily in my cocoa. I’ve taken numerous supplements that supposedly help hair, nails and skin such as collagen and gelatin that never did anything. But this bone broth has made my hair shiny, thicker and more lush than it bas been in years (i’m 59 this year). I considered trying other (cheaper) bone broth powders, but they’re usually made from beef bones whereas Dr. Axe’s is made from chicken bones. And my sweetie pie noticed the skin on my body has become baby smooth and soft without moisturizer. You can’t argue with results! 🙂
Just from the above commenter will look into ordering a Dr. Axe bone broth protein powder. I could use some collagen and all the amino acids. Thank you above commenter.
Thank you! Glad to hear the bone broth is making a difference 🙂
