Try This: DIY Banana- Avocado Hair Mask

Recently, I made a commitment to take better care of my hair. Honestly, I have to confess that I am the worse at taking care of my hair. Taking better care of my hair means getting regular trims, doing protein treatment, keeping it moisturized and lastly giving my hair some TLC with weekly deep conditioning treatments. So, to accomplish this I started doing some research on my go-to site “YouTube” because ladies you know there is a plethora of information on YouTube for hair and other beauty related stuff. When I started research deep conditioning treatments on YouTube I wanted to find something a product with the least amount of chemicals and this is when I stumbled across the DIY Banana-Avocado Hair Mask. I love bananas and I love avocados, so I was like why not give this yummy mask a try. I had all the ingredients in my kitchen already and it was super easy to make. Ladies, this hair mask smelled so damn good. I honestly was so tempted to eat it but I couldn’t due to raw egg in it. I loved this mask so much that I just knew I had to share it with my readers. So in case you want to give your hair some TLC here is the recipe for the DIY Banana-Avocado Hair Mask. Enjoy xx <3Banana Avocado Hair Mask

 My Overall Impression of the Banana-Avocado Hair Mask

Banana Avocado Hair Mask

I loved this hair mask. I kept the hair mask in my hair for about two hours on Saturday, because I was doing homework and too busy at the time to wash it out. After washing out my hair the first thing I noticed was how soft and silky my hair was. I also noticed how curly my hair was. This mask definitely brought back my natural curls. It’s been four days since I’ve done the hair mask and my hair is still very moisturized and has that clean, fresh and silky feeling it had, when I washed it on Sunday. Also, make sure to thoroughly wash out the hair mask and then follow it up with a good shampoo and conditioner. Your hair might smell like bananas for a bit but it still a good smell.

    This looks awesome! I have a couple of hair masks I need to try, but I haven’t gotten around to even using those. I did hair masks more often before but they were never able to help me with dandruff and other things like that so I never really found out the true benefit since they didn’t hydrate! This one looks like it would work well though so I may have to give it a go! xx adaatude.com

    • Aren’t hair masks just so much fun! BTW this particular mask is actually very easy to rinse out since I use the blender and I basically puree it. The consistency is just like your conditioner and it’s not lumpy at all. Next time you’re making a mask just use the blender

  • Savannah Ward

    I’m not a huge fan of bananas, but maybe I’ll like them in the form of a mask!
