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.

Tips for ponytails

I love ponytails, especially in the summer months when I really don’t want to be wearing wigs all day long. ( I wear wigs in the winter and ponytails during the summer. For me it makes perfect sense.) Ponytails are practical and make a fashion statement that you are stunning even when you are wearing baggy clothes. My Afro hair is short so I have different lengths of ponytail extensions. You can get them through the links below.

I think every woman knows how to do a basic ponytail, but if you need something extra here are some tips:

1. Comb your hair (if it is Afro hair you will need to moisturise it. ) Put a hair band around your wrist. Pull your hair with one hand and with the other tie the hair together.

2. If you want to use hair gel use it now to prevent runaway hairs.

3. Take your ponytail hair extension and clip it or wrap it around your own ponytail and you are ready to go.
