Massage it into your hair and scalp and leave it on for a few minutes before washing it off with a mild shampoo.
If you have the time, heat up the oil and give yourself a warm oil head massage and you will see how both your mood and hair benefits from it.
Eggs are great for your hair. Use just the egg whites on your hair as it is difficult to get rid of the egg yolk smell.
