3 DIY Banana Hair Mask Recipes That Will Hydrate, Strengthen And Make Those Curls Pop Pop Pop!

Banana hair MaskI have three bananas left in my fruit basket on the kitchen counter that no one plans to eat. How do I know this? Well you know how it is with kids, if they see even one spot on a banana, suddenly they are gross and untouchable. I do not complain though, more for me. Spotted bananas are great for smoothies and awesome for my hair which is why I am here.

If you have bananas that you just want to use up and your hair is in need of some TLC, do not throw them out, blend them up and make a great mask.

There are a number of mask recipes out there and in this post we have one that is detailed in a video but if you need more we have a few others as well.

Recipe 1

Mix a ripe banana with avocado add some coconut milk, apply it to your hair and leave it on for at least 30 minutes. Be prepared, for strength, hydration and the most springy curls ever!

Recipe 2

Mix a ripe banana with 1/4 olive oil and one egg. Make sure you mix this very well, as a matter of fact it might be better to just blend everything. Add the mix to your hair and listen to your hair thank you for days.


Recipe 3

This one adds moisture, strength and shine all in one. You will need the following according to YouTuber She’kia Renea:

2-3 ripe bananas (mashed) or Banana Baby Food
2-3 tablespoons honey
tablespoons of olive oil
tablespoons of Mayo

Mix well and apply it to your hair for at least 30 minutes. All of these recipes should be added to damp or dry hair before you shampoo or co-wash. Do not forget to cover your hair with a plastic cap, or you can steam your hair without the cap for the allotted time under your steamer.

Check out the video demonstration for Recipe 3:

Oh finally something i can use bananas for but I wonder if I’m allergic to eating them, will i have a reaction applying it to my scalp? Lord I’m too scared to find out.

I would say given it a miss Raynisha, you may have a reaction use avocado instead.

Do the bananas have to be rotten (as far as I’m concerned even a single brown spot = rotten); or may I use green or yellow banana?

Doresha Blackwell

Darren The third recipe besides Mayo Is similar to what I have in.

These treatments need to be strained so that it will not leave residue .
