How to Make Banana Hair Mask

Looking for a little shine in your hair?

Bananas are pretty awesome. Not only are they delicious, they make an amazing Hair and Face Mask.

Making banana mask is more like making a banana shake, you blend it to a smooth paste. And instead of drinking it you apply it on your hair 

You will need:

  • 1 ripe banana (2 if you have long hair)
  • 2 tablespoon olive oil or coconut oil
  • 2 tablespoon honey
  • 1/2 cup full-fat milk (you can also use  coconut milk or yogurt)
  • 1 tablespoon butter (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon lime juice (optional)
  • 1 egg/yolk (optional, for body and volume)

Pick a ripe banana (s), put it in a blender (or use a stick blender). Very ripe bananas work best for this recipe. Then, add honey, coconut/ olive oil, and milk and blend really well. You don’t want any chunks, just smooth paste of creamy consistency. This will make it easier to rinse out.

Banana tip:

1. If you want to save yourself the hassle of blending the banana, just use banana baby food puree. Open the banana puree bottle, add the remaining ingredients and mix well and you are ready to go. This will also save you from banana bits sticking to your hair.

2. I read this somewhere, if you do not want the banana to stick to your hair: split the banana in half lengthwise and scoop out the centre black seeds, and then use for the mask.

To Use:

  • Apply this mask starting at roots and working your way to the ends. Slather as much as you can, making sure you have covered every bit of your scalp and hair. Wind your hair into a loose bun if long.
  • Put on a shower cap or wrap a towel around your head to prevent dripping all over your house.
  • Leave this on for about 30 minutes. While you wait for 30 minutes.. you can read a book, listen to some soothing music, watch your favourite show or sit in a bath. I chose the last option. I put some sea salt and a few drops of lavender essential oil and soaked in for a relaxing bath.
  • Then rinse hair thoroughly and shampoo as usual. You may not need to condition your hair (see how your hair feels).
  • Let your hair air dry.
  • And enjoy your beautiful hair.

Bananas for Your Skin

If you have got some left over banana mixture, apply on your face and neck. Let it sit for 15 minutes, then wash with plain water. Your skin will be soft and clear. Bananas help to remove uneven skin tone and blemishes and give you a smooth radiant complexion.
