DIY: Banana hair mask

Hello everyone!
Do you remember the banana peel skincare post?  Back in August of 2012 a wrote about how bananas can help acne, psoriasis, warts and poison ivy.
Bananas are a very rich source of potassium and vitamins, which also make them the perfect choice for a DIY hair mask.
This mask is very easy to prepare, all you need is one or two ingredients.

Ingredients:
  • 1 banana (the riper, the better)
  • 1 tbsp honey (optional)

Method:
  1. Blend banana in a food processor, making sure there aren't any chunks.
  2. Add honey (optional)
  3. Apply the mixture to your hair, and cover it with a shower cap or plastic bag.  (more info: At-home deep-conditioning hair treatment)
  4. To lock in the nutrients, wrap a hot towel around your head.
  5. Wait 20 minutes.
  6. Shampoo and condition your hair as usual.

Tips:
  • You can also add olive oil or a tablespoon of conditioner.
  • Use once a week for best results.
  • Ideal for thin and damaged hair.

If you like DIY hair treatments; you can also try the avocado mask and the milk and honey mask!
