Banana hair-mask treatment

Have you got some overipe bananas that nobody wants to eat? Don’t throw them away. My kids love their fruits including bananas, but from time-to-time some gets left too long. When a banana or two is left over that is when I get to treat my hair.


My Afro hair is very dry, but a good  banana hair- mask provides it with much- needed vitamins B6, C and also potassium.

Bananas are known to be really good for treating your hair and scalp. They also good for preventing and controlling dandruff.


I like to give my hair a good banana hair-mask treatment in the morning before having my shower.

All you need to make one are some overipe bananas, and, if you are feeling adventurous, you can add olive oil and coconut oil.


Here is what to do:

1.Put the bananas in the blender ( adding the olive and coconut oil, if desired) Blend until it turns into a paste.

2. Apply the paste to your hair with a brush or your hands.

3.Wrap with a shower cap or cling film.

4. Leave to dry for about  20mins

4. Rinse your hair and condition as usual.
