I found this page that says mixing an egg with brandy, then rubbing it on your head to grow hair. Or using almond oil…. or mixing eggs, honey, and olive oil. They also say that copper prevents hair loss and zinc prevents grey hair. WHAAAAAT?
Point is, I wonder where these crazy ideas come from. Is there anything in eggs that would lead someone to believe that they’ll regrow your hair? Why use brandy? I know you probably can’t answer that, but I’m thinking out loud. These things are so ridiculous to me and I am sure I’m not the only one that shares that thought process. I believe there’s a place for homeopathic medicine in the world, but these hair loss “cures” are so obviously dumb it surprises me that people can’t just see they’re wasting time before they even start.
I agree and share your thought process as well. Much of the homeopathic remedies I’ve been asked about through this site have been truly ridiculous and won’t do a thing for your regrowing your hair or preventing it from falling out. I have no idea where such ideas come from, but I can’t help but just shake my head whenever I hear about a new one. Maybe someone’s drunk uncle had a full head of hair, so the idea of using brandy came into play?
Eggs and brandy… isn’t that eggnog? What better way to celebrate the holidays than trying to get your scalp drunk? Garnish with nutmeg and serve.
