DIY | Honey, Egg and Olive Oil Hair Mask

This is a really easy and affordable way to give your hair a deep treatment!

These three simple ingredients that you can find in your own pantry are not just good for eating but also have amazing benefits for skin and hair.

Apply this mask at least once a week and you will have beautiful, shiny and healthy hair!


  1. 2 Eggs
  2. 1 Tablespoon of Honey (I highly recommend using this or this honey)
  3. 2 Tablespoons of Olive Oil (this is the Olive Oil I use and love)

What To Do:

  1. Mix two whole eggs with two tablespoons of olive oil. Add in the honey and mix until creamy.
  2. Smooth through from roots to ends of your hair until completely covered. Cover your hair with a plastic wrap or shower cap and leave for one hour. Rinse with warm water and shampoo (this is the shampoo I use) until hair is no longer sticky. Use conditioner if necessary. The mixture will only be sticky until you rinse it out and once it’s out your hair will feel so soft and conditioned!
  3. Get ready to have smooth and healthy looking hair!

      1. It works for me, im losing a lot hair whenever i brush my hair. Bec.of that , i tossed my brush in the garbage, im using wide tooth comb now. I notice i don’t lose much hair now as to like before… i intend to use it for as long as i can.

  1. I hope to try this out, thanks for the recipe! I have a hair mask i recently bought from, Pro Naturals Moroccan Argan Oil Hair Mask, it has worked really well but it’s pricey so I’m getting into homemade recipes to make it last.

  2. thank you for the info, sounds good, I will try this as soon as I can, I use another good one that has worked well for my hair, it’s pro naturals moroccan argan oil hair mask and leaves my hair pretty and healthy.🙂

    1. Your very welcome! Please let me know what you think if you try it out!! I love argan oil hair masks! I just think it’s fun to play around with ingredients you can find at home! so affordable and really fun.

  3. Can you please check your links? Sorry for going off topic but diy beauty | honey, egg and olive oil hair mask Beauty By Britanie and hair health and beauty keeps redirecting me.

  4. Gonna try it tomorrow coz i adore beautiful hair. The day after tomorrow is the first day of my job). Hope i’ll have nice hair to impress everyone there.

  5. I’m trying this out now, except I got the recipe from a different site, it just said one egg, one tbs honey and one tbs olive oil. Hopefully it works! My hair is HORRIBLE!

    1. Hey, you could use one or two eggs or one tbs of olive oil but it depends on how deep of a mask you want and how long your hair is. I prefer two eggs and two tablespoons of olive oil – you can adjust it to your preference though!

    1. yes you can, though I would recommend some type of oil for more deep conditioning. you could substitute the olive oil for jojoba or sweet almond. Honey and egg would be fine on it’s own though!

  6. hey guys! i did this treatment yesterday and i’d love to share my results(i know this is very long but i hope it can help someone)! i have very long (down to my belly button) and extreamly thick hair. it is naturally brunette, however, i color the ends pink. they are very dry and i have awful split ends (i haven’t gotten my hair cut in a little over a year). i as looking fr something that would really deeply moisturize my hair and make it soft. i used two eggs, one tablespoon of honey and two tablespoons of olive oil and used my hands to put the mixture in my hair from root to tip (focusing on my ends b/c thats where the most moisture is needed) i then wrapped my hair in a towel and left it in for about 45 minutes. at the end of that time i hopped in the shower and used my Aussie confidently clean shampoo to rinse it out (had to shampoo it about 3 or 4 times to get all of the stuff out) and then used the Aussie confidently clean conditioner and combed my hair out with a wide tooth comb (in the shower, while the conditioner was in). then i rinsed all of the product out of my hair and got out of the shower. i left my hair in a towel for about 10 min just to get some of the water out of my hair so it wasnt dripping wet, and then i blow dried it about halfway dry. then i put in about a quarter sized amount of Chi Silk infusion oil and brushed that evenly throughout my hair. then i allowed my hair to air dry.

    today my hair is feeling VERY soft and looking much healthier. i woud strongly suggest this treatment and i will probably start doing it once every two weeks to give my hair an extra boost.

  7. Hello! This looks great and I am looking forward to trying it. But I have a question, could you substitute coconut oil in for the olive oil? Would it be better? What do you think? Thank you!

  8. I must say I was a little skeptical. I have never taken a spa like treatment from the internet and bring it to life. My hair is a little tricky to deal with. I did this hair mask because I was getting split ends since re-growing my hair out for this past year, for I had a Mohawk last year, and I must say you would foolish not try this amazing hair mask!😀 It’s absolutely brilliant!

  9. I am a black woman and I’ve tried this and can say that this really works immediately, usually when I comb my hair after a deep conditioner lots of dead hair falls out, but not this time. My hair feels like silk and I am loving the results. Thanks for sharing.

  10. I was skeptical to try this because I was scared it would mess up my hair. But I followed the recipe and left it in for about 50 minutes and washed my hair with my Moroccan shampoo about 3 times and then used my conditioner. Let my hair dry and then straightened it and wow. What an amazing difference! My hair is super shiny and soft!!! I will be doing this treatment often. I’m in love with my new hair!

  11. Hey guys😀 I just do it right now😀 I have a long big wavy hair. Long time ago I’ve tried egg mask, but I can’t stand the smell. Now, I mixed it with honey and olive oil like your suggestion and I don’t smell any egg. I hope it will give me a good result cause I have a really dry hair. Since I was a child I’ve already got a dry hair, but I made it worse by smoothing it 6 years ago and my hair never back as it used to be since then (which I regret). I hope this recipe will make my hair better and healthier cause I always jealous when I see girls with beautiful hair😀

  12. AMAZING! I had so much frizz and this totally does it…now my stringy Asian hair doesn’t look like a dried poof of straw… the cool thing is my hair absorbed it all… so one rinse with water was enough! I guess my hair was super dry… thanks!!!

  13. Hi everybody,

    My hair is so short and instead I used 1 egg, 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil and a tablespoon of biological honey. Well if I’m honest I was hungry and after half of the honey tablespoon was poured in I put spoon in my mouth, and Yum! My mixture has been in my hair for nearly 10 mins, and shall leave this for an hour.

  14. Nice post. You can use 1 tsp of lemon juice if you have scalp infections and a piece of camphor for good aroma. You can use coconut milk for smoothing your hair. Add 1 tsp of honey to the coconut milk and stir it to mix honey well and apply the mix to your hair and wait for an hour and rinse with cool water. This makes your hair healthy and smooth.

  15. I have very curly, frizzy hair, and it has been a challenge for me to find products that reduce frizz while not making my hair feel “crunchy.” My hair dresser started using the Shielo Restoration Oil in my hair after I dry it – and the result is very smooth curls. I really like the Shielo Oil and it smells delicious. I would recommend for anyone with dry or curly hair.

  16. i was very scared to do this i have very fine hair that always broke off in the back since i have been using this my has grown in the back and i look like i have a full head of hair

  17.

  18. I’m planning on trying this, but will it mess up my newly dyed blue hair??
    Yesterday, I had a hair disaster! I bleached my hair and it came out terrible, my hair was extremely dry and it was breaking very bad, this is the worst my hair has ever been. So, today I had my boyfriend’s mom fix my hair because it was multiple colors, the bleach didn’t get out some of the purple, so my hair was blonde, grey, pink and purple. We decided that she was going to do a bleach bath and dye my hair blue, I was a little skeptical on it, because I was worried that it would fry it even more, but for some reason my hair turned out to be softer. I have been looking all day for some sort of DIY mask because I am so terrified my hair will continue to break off. Please respond to my question, thanks!

  19. Does using eggs make your hair smell? And can I use vegetable oil in stead of olive oil? And is using honey, sticky and hard to get out? Sorry for so many questions but it’s my Birthday in a few days and I’d like to have beautiful, silky, and shining hair.:) Please reply as soon as possible!!!! Thanks!

    1. No it will not make your hair smell and the honey won’t be sticky once you wash it out! Just make sure to shampoo and condition after. Happy birthday🙂

  20. I must thank you for the efforts you have put in penning this blog.
    I really hope to view the same high-grade blog posts by you later on as well.
    In truth, your creative writing abilities has inspired me to get my very own site now😉

  21. I just tried it, I followed all the directions and its not washing out! I have thick, absorbant hair! I’ve tried shampooing 4x’s in a hot shower and poured 3 beers on my hair to get out the grime but it still won’t come out! Help!!!!

  22. Egg whites will dry out your hair, save the whites for your face. When it comes to your hair, use the egg yolk only. I loved the outcome🙂

  23. I just tried this and my hair feels very clumpy an thick:/
    I was followed the recipient and I had slightly damp hair when I started, I left it for about 45 mins and after I rinsed it out as used shampoo my hair felt like this, any suggestions of what I might have done wrong

  24. I’m doing this right now and not gonna lie the smell is kinda weird but it feels nice on my scalp…. The smell not gonna last after I wash my hair is it?

  25. I just tried this, i added coconut oil and yogurt for the extra protein, made my dry frizzy hair so much softer! This is the first time ive done a diy hair mask and i will definitely be doing it regularly now.

  26. I’m trying this tonight and I really hope it works! My hair has bad split ends because of heat damage since I am a middle school student. I only have one question; Will it take my split ends away right away or atleast correct a lot of them? Please Reply thank you!

  27. I honestly didn’t really think this would work with me my hair is long and thick, kinda dryish… Tried it for about 25 minutes and shampooed twice waited for it to dry and wow it’s so so so soft I’m so amazed thank you

    1. Use jojoba oil or olive oil alone and or coconut oil. There is this really good oil called castor oil that will make ur hair soft, shiney, healthy and thicker

  28. You can avoid all this stink and mess by using egg oil (eyova). An effective remedy is massaging your scalp with egg oil twice a week, leaving on overnight and washing off in the morning using shampoo only once.

  29. When I did it it stunk and when I washed my hair it was super duper knotted and I had to use a lot a lot a lot of conditioner but it made it shiney and noe I’m just waiting for it to dry to see if it made it soft not. Guess we will see!!! !

  30. so i tried making this, and you said to mix the ingredients together until creamy. however mine didnt become creamy when i mixed it together it was super slippery and goopy and idk why. so i didnt use it on my hair in the end… what did i do wrong??

  31. I tryed it and my hair felt really soft and it did seem a little shiny toda y was my first day doing it and I will continúe doing it every week.

  32. Hey, I’ve been hearing about this mask from all over the intenet and am finally ready to try it! (I tend to stay away from internet trends because I have no idea what’s or not). I do have a question though, is it okay to substitue the olive oil with vegetable or not? I’d love to know! Thanks a bunch!

  33. Hey.. I did try this too with one egg, 2tbsp olive oil, 1tbsp coconut oil, 13/4tbsp honey and 1tbsp butter. Its like a miracle hair masque. Believe me. My hair was really damaged after all that smoothening and hair dyes I used. And ut had become really frizzy and brittle. It really bothered me since I had really healthy hair once. Now it was so uttely damaged and were losing their thickness.. Thanks to this natural home remedies, it’s getting my hair back to life. Even though it smells awful, I would definitely do this over and over again till my hair is more healthier. All women out there you should give it try.

  34. Instead of stinky, messy raw eggs, it is so much easier to use egg oil on hair without any risk of rashes or salmonella infection. There is absolutely no smell and it is so much more convenient. Since I am a working person, I could use eggs only on Sundays and my spouse always used to crib. Egg oil, I can use any day of the week, leave it on overnight and wash it off in the morning like any regular oil.
    Have you tried it? It’s available on Flipkart and Purplle.

  35. Can i use pomace olive oil in place of extra virgin olive oil ..plz rply smone is my sisters marriage and i want my hairs to look gorgious..plzzzz rply

  36. Does this help your hair grow? I seen a video on YouTube where the girl said this would help your hair grow overnight.

  37. I just washed this treatment off of my hair, left my hair wrapped in a towel for 10 minutes then took it off and lightly brushed my hair with a roller brush with plastic teeth. My hair is now mid-way dry and I can already feel a MASSIVE difference in the texture and thickness! It’s definitely not as frizzy as it was before, it feels really smooth! Baring in mind my hair felt like a f**king brillo pad! Hahaha! I used a colorB4 on my hair a few weeks ago then a bleach just 2 days after, my hair was horrible and the thin dry ends knotted really badly, I constantly have a sore and painful scalp, but since using this that’s eased off a lot too! I’m pretty impressed! My hair will never feel 100% soft but going from 0% soft to 30% softer is a really good feeling! haha! I’ll update you guys in the morning!
