But at the same time, a banana hair mask can give you a lot of trouble while you are trying to take it off by washing your hair.
So let’s discuss homemade banana hair mask recipes which are easy to make.
If you do a lot of styling which leaves your hair frizzy and lacking luster then this homemade banana hair mask is for you, there are alternatives to the ingredients which will make it an easier task to make this mask.
The following are the ingredients for banana mask for hair:
- 2 mashed ripe bananas
- 1 whole egg
- 5 tablespoons honey (alternative – 2 big teaspoons of mayonnaise)
- 5 tablespoons raw milk (Alternative – 5 tbsps of sour curd or yogurt)
- ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil (Alternative – ¼ cup sweet almond oil)
The quantities mentioned above is for hair that is shoulder length. You can increase the quantities in the same ratios for longer hair.
Preparation Of Banana Hair Mask
While preparing the banana hair mask at home, remember the more your hair is damaged and chemically withered, the longer you will have to keep the mask on.
- In a bowl mix all the ingredients to form a smooth smoothie mixture.
- Part hair with a big toothed shampoo comb and use this mixture on the head with fingers and then smooth out to the strands. Coat the strands of hairs.
- Then, use a plastic cap so that it doesn’t drip and fall all around your face.
Keep it on for at least 15 minutes, and longer as I already mentioned, for more damaged hair but not exceeding 35-40 minutes.
A proper rinsing is essential to lock in the new found moisture.
Since I already mentioned that banana is hard to get off from the hair, firstly bend your hair down and let the tap water run thoroughly through the hair and see how much is cleansed.
Next, shampoo your hair, and again rinse in the same way under running tap water.
Take a shampoo comb and comb out your hair, and keep rinsing the comb to get the banana flakes out of the teeth of the comb.
Again rinse under running tap water. And now lastly take one mug full of water, mix 5 tbsp honey and mix it, and then rinse for the last time with this. You can also use beer rinse or vinegar rinse (5tbsp) mixed in one mug of water.
Do not abrasively towel dry, press gently and towel dries your hair.
