Who writes Beautiful Basics?

 My name is Kassie and I’m a chronically ill 28-year-old from a small town in Oregon. I have a passion for all things beauty and green living. I write about natural and organic beauty products as well as DIY beauty recipes and other odds and ends. I'm also an animal lover and believe beauty should be cruelty free. I'm a proud cat mommy and vegetarian.

I’m not an expert or a professional but I have learned a lot about beauty and skin care by experimenting and teaching myself. I like to keep my posts as positive as possible. I love testing out products but I only write about the ones I love. Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you enjoy!

I also have a blog that chronicles my life living with chronic illness.

Eggsellent Gentle Shampoo

Hey there beauty! Hope you're doing well and having a fantastic day! I'm going to be sharing a DIY super gentle shampoo recipe with you today. I tried it the other day and just loved how my hair felt but I will warn you that if you have a strong sense of smell it might not be best for you. My family jokes that I have the nose of a bloodhound and absolutely could not stand the smell of this shampoo in my hair throughout the day.

It did, however, make my hair feel silky, strong, smooth, and tamed my itchy scalp. You'll have to decide if the scent is worth the outcome for yourself.

<center>What you need:

1 egg
1/2 cup of milk (whatever you drink is just fine – skim milk will be less greasy while whole milk would leave your locks a bit oily, but hydrated)


Beat the egg until it's foamy before adding the milk. Once the entire mixture is foamy it's time to massage it into your scalp. Let it sit for at least 5 minutes before rinsing out. Take your time and make sure it's all out. I conditioned after rinsing but this step is optional.

I think using this shampoo would be best for days when you're not going on a date or an important business meeting although you can certainly style as usual and go about your normal routine if you want to. This recipe makes hair super shiny and bouncy!

Couldn't you use Coconut milk instead of dairy?


Sure! I actually have posted several recipes using coconut oil for hair health. It works great! I haven't tried it with egg but I don't see why not!

I am wondering whether you could perhaps use avocado or some other non-animal source of fat instead of the egg with the non-dairy milk. Just finishing up a henna/indigo cycle so I have washed my hair out about four times today, but shall try such a thing in the future and hopefully remember to report back on whether it works.
