Yummy bananas. I love banana bread, banana flavored coffee, banana yogurt, banana Runts, and even just straight up eating a banana for breakfast.
Turns out that my hair wants to eat a banana, too!
I love this DIY beauty recipe because I am the only one who likes bananas in my house and when I buy them, a few always go bad before I have a chance to eat them. Now I can just mash them up and use it as a deep conditioner for my hair. Perfect for cold weather when my hair is drier than ever.
You will need:
- 1 banana (the more ripe, or over ripe, the better)
- 1 tablespoon of olive olive
- plastic wrap
How to prepare:
Wash hair using only shampoo and towel dry. Peel banana and mash in bowl, adding in the olive oil. Continue mashing until well blended. Apply banana mash to hair. For long hair, only apply to the ends. You don't have to rub into scalp. Saturate hair and then pile on top of head and wrap your locks with plastic wrap. If you really want to get all spa-like, dip a towel in hot water, ring out, and wear as a turban over the plastic wrap. Leave on for 20 minutes and rinse.
It leaves a light banana scent and your hair will be softer. Keep up this routine weekly, and you can save your hair from split ends and damage just from the nourishment.
Have you ever tried using bananas as a deep conditioner?
