Why Is Yogurt Powder Good For My Hair?

Welcome to another Ingredient Spotlight! Ingredients found at home can be extremely useful when it comes to hair care. Yogurt powder is one of those ingredients; its rich in protein, calcium, and other vitamins that can provide many benefits to your curls!

Yogurt Powder is simply dehydrated yogurt. So, why is yogurt powder so good for your hair?

  • Moisturizing: Lactic acid in Yogurt Powder actually serves several purposes that are dependent on how the acid is formulated. It can help to soften and hydrate curls or smooth down the hair follicles, making the hair appear smooth and shiny.
  • Strengthening: Yogurt Powder is packed with protein. This will help to strengthen your hair, preventing breakage, split ends, and any other physical damage.
  • Soothing: Yogurt Powder has anti-fungal, anti-inflammatory properties that can reduce irritation and dandruff caused by a dry scalp!

You may be asking yourself “won’t the yogurt go bad in my hair?”...the answer is no! Dehydration removes any moisture from the food, preventing the growth of microorganisms like bacteria and fungi so there’s nothing to worry about!

After years of using products that left her hair dry, damaged, and dull, Muhga Eltigani decided to chop off her hair and start over. For 6 months, she committed to using only natural ingredients on her hair- foods from her fridge and the grocery store with names she recognized, like avocados, olive oil, coconut, baking soda, and even eggs. She found support through an online community of women like her, sharing recipes and ingredients on Youtube.
