I recently happened to hear about Eyova’s egg oil when someone commented about it on one of my most popular posts – 2 eggs = 1 fabulous DIY hair mask + 1 face mask!. I checked their website and was pretty intrigued to know more about it. I found out that this brand ships and sells only within India. So, I didn’t check more into it. However, I was quite surprised when someone from Eyova contacted me recently and asked me if I am willing to review a bottle!. I was pretty overjoyed at the chance to try it. They couriered me the bottle from Mumbai 🙂
Pretty much every one knows that when you apply egg to your hair, it’s very beneficial. However, not everyone does it because of how inconvenient and uncomfortable it is. This is where Eyova comes into picture.
One bottle of Eyova contains 50ml of product. This 50ml has the goodness of 22 eggs!. It’s packed with egg’s nutrients. It doesn’t drip or smell disgustingly of eggs.
I have been using it twice a week for a little more than a month. The oil is slightly hazy, yellow in color and viscous. It’s not as thick as castor oil but still is thicker than any regular oil. It has a really mild smell of eggs. However, the dominant smell is a fragrance that smells good.
When you apply it on to your hair, it seems like your hair is drinking up the goodness. There is no oiliness or greasiness at all. However, almost immediately your hair gets a natural shine. You have to apply it for a minimum of 3 hours or you can even leave it overnight and then wash off with your regular shampoo. I usually applied it overnight since after the application, your hair isn’t oily at all and the smell isn’t pungent.
I mainly concentrate on the lower half of my hair since it needs more conditioning than the roots. Of course, this being an oil, long term usage brings more benefits to your hair. My review is based on a short term usage of a bit more than a month. I am sure the more I use it, the better my hair will be.
This oil contains :
- Essential Fatty Acids (like Omega 3 and 6 fatty acids) – which stimulates hair growth and fights poor scalp conditions like dry and flaky scalp, thus preventing dandruff and hair loss.
- Cholesterol – which deep conditions hair and enhances the penetration of other bioactives, thus adding shine and luster to hair strands.
- Lutein & Zeaxanthin – which helps fight free radical chain reactions which damage hair, thus increasing hydration, elasticity of the scalp and preventing premature ageing (graying) of the hair.
I am loving this hair nutrient and I highly suggest you give this a try!
Price of a 50ml bottle is Rs. 590 (AED 35.59) and can be ordered from their online site www.eyova.com. If you suffer from weak, thin, damaged or greying hair, give this oil a try. The bottle will last quite a bit of time, even though it’s 50ml, since a little goes a long way.
[Update as on 1st Mar 2016] – Eyova is now available in a brand new look. Check it out!.
