DIY banana/avocado hair mask


Ingredients:
1 banana
1 half of an avocado
3 teaspoons of extra virgin olive oil

Instructions:
1. In a bowl smash the banana and avocado together and add the 3 teaspoons of extra virgin olive oil. 

(The mixture is supposed to turn out looking very smooth and creamy. Make sure there are no chunks of banana and avocado in the mixture when you apply it to your hair.)

2. In the shower wash your hair with shampoo and instead of applying your regular conditioner apply the mask. 
3. Clip hair up and leave the mask on for at least 30 minutes. 
4. Rinse the mask off and conditioner hair with regular conditioner. 

My experience:
I decided to make my own hair mask the other day because I noticed that my hair was looking very dry. I smashed a banana and an avocado together added olive oil and applied it to my hair. I didn't make sure that the mixture was smooth and creamy first. I applied the mixture with chunks of banana and avocado. Well, when I attempted to wash the mask off I had trouble. So make sure to mix the ingredients together with an electric beater or even a blender. After I washed it off and let it dry I did notice that my hair looked a bit more shiny and healthy.

  24. Really cool. I'm wondering if it will be just as effective if you use fruits that are overripe. Somehow I'm always ending up with an overly ripe banana or avocado.
