Has anyone had any luck doing those egg hair masks?

I haven't done one of those since I was about 13 and I don't remember how it was lol. Does anyone ever do it, and if you do,what ingredients do you mix with the egg and what is the main benefit you get?
Type 4 hair
High porosity
Medium density
Medium strand thickness

    I have never done one, but I have heard a good piece of advise about it.  Be sure to rinse with cold water, otherwise you run the risk of cooking the egg into your hair!  Scrambled egg hair will not be a pretty look!

    I've done them and noticed no difference. I much prefer the gelatin mask.

    I did one once, and my hair was horribly rough for weeks afterward. I have since read that egg proteins are too big to penetrate the hair shaft and so sit on top. I agree with @BrittanyM that if you want to try protein, gelatin is a better option.
