Ingredients used in this hair mask

  • 1 ripe banana
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

Directions to prepare hair mask

  1. Get your ripe banana and extra virgin olive oil ready.
  2. Now into a blender, throw in your ripe banana (roughly chopped) and grind to a smooth, lump-free puree. This is crucial because you do not want to end up with lumps in your hair.
  3. Open up the blender and add your olive oil into the pureed banana. Give it another whirl in the blender. You will now have a really frothy and creamy hair mask that smells absolutely divine!
  4. Your banana olive oil hair mask is now ready for application! Get into the shower, wet your hair and use your fingers to apply the hair mask evenly through your hair strands and scalp as well. Allow it to sit for 10-15 minutes. Then rinse off thoroughly to reveal hydrated and conditioned, shiny hair!
You could add milk to make your hair mask more creamy, as milk is also a great conditioner. But this is totally optional.

i tried this on my dry, frizzy, bleach damaged hair and it definitely feels healthier! its considerably softer and less frizzy. the only downside was getting the banana out of my hair. i was still brushing out banana bits long afterwards lol i never wanna eat, smell, touch, or see another banana again.

Ash on June 04, 2020:

Do I was with regular shampoo and conditioner after the mask? Or just wear the mask for 30 and then rinse?

Hazel on January 26, 2020:

I was just wondering how long you could keep the mask untill you have to use it?? X

I find that this mask is quite hard to wash out and I couldn't wash all of it out. There were still some bits of banana left in my hair. Do you have any tips to help wash it out better? I shampooed and conditioned thoroughly.

The Shielo Intensive Hair mask is great like @aestheticx said. I have really hard water and it seems to be the only one that works. My hair is soft again. Be careful of HARD WATER!

You know that hair fall is normal matter for every man and woman, but excess hair fall is bad for life, it makes our life unhappy. But if you take some step for that then you can get good results for your problem

An attentiongrabbing dialogue is worth comment. I believe that you must write extra on this subject, it won't be a taboo topic but typically persons are not enough to speak on such topics. To the next. Cheers geeddaegeaed
