bANANA hAIRcARE rECIPES _ dIY
Bananas contain folic acid that makes your hair shine. They also keep your hair moisturized and well hydrated. The potassium in the fruit and the other natural oils also improve hair health.
There are numerous banana hair packs that help your hair in different ways:
For Soft Hair
Mix a ripe banana with avocado and add coconut milk to the mixture.
Apply it to your hair and wait for 15 to 20 minutes.
This pack conditions damaged hair and makes the hair soft. Instead of avocado, you can also make the same pack by adding cocoa. The presence of cocoa helps in bringing out the natural color of the hair.
For Shiny Hair
Peel a banana and add 1/4 cup of olive oil and one egg white.
Add all the ingredients to a blender and puree for a couple of minutes.
Apply the mixture to your hair and let it stay for 15 minutes.
You can then wash your hair with your favorite shampoo and conditioner.
For Strong Hair
Mix the pulp of a ripe banana with yogurt.
Apply the smooth paste to your scalp and rinse with cool water after 15 to 20 minutes.
For Dry Hair
Mix 3 teaspoons of honey with the pulp of a ripe banana.
Apply the mask to your hair while it is still wet.
Let it sit for 15 to 20 minutes.
Shampoo and condition your hair.
For Damaged Hair
Make banana pulp and add a few drops of almond oil to it.
Apply the mixture to your hair and leave it on for 10 to 15 minutes. The vitamins A and C present in the banana, along with the vitamin E in almond oil, leave your hair silky, shiny, and, not to mention, moisturized and soft.
Something Important To Be Noted – While applying any of the above hair masks, it is essential to keep two things in mind so that you don’t end up with chunks of banana in your hair post hair wash.
First, whenever you use a banana for hair mask, make sure it is in the pulp form and there are no chunks. Just to be sure, blend all the contents of the hair mask.
Second, never let these hair masks dry on your hair completely. The hair mask should still be wet when you wash your hair so that you can easily get rid of the banana, which otherwise tends to stick. You might feel that your hair is a little stiff when it is drying, but once it dries completely, you will be able to see the results.
