A study was published by Mary Ann Liebert, Inc. and the Korean Society of Food Science and Nutrition in the Journal of Medicinal Food, there egg yolks were found out to be scientifically effective for hair growth and a better alternative to minoxidil and alike. The minoxidil acts by promoting vascularization and growth of hair and also stimulates the production of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF).

But if you use this medication for a longer duration, then there would be some side effects too. Hence, egg yolks come as the best substitute or say alternative.

Eggs of chicken and  hair growth

It is a fact that chicken develops hair before hatching. Hence it is said that the egg could have important factors for hair growth.

How do egg yolks help?

But studies found that, in men,  androgen is responsible for hair fall. But, there is no relatedness between the function of HGP and androgen, so it won’t affect men and women differently.

It has been found significantly that both men and women can experience hair fall. And the use of egg yolk along with hair transplant and another kind of modes of restoration, there are many possibilities. Compared to other treatments, it is a relatively inexpensive option for treatment or transplant without any side effect, if applied properly.

Disclaimer: Although the research tends to be a good promise for treating hair fall in the future, more studies must be carried out to support the study before it gets recommend as an alternative to minoxidil.
