How to Make a Banana Hair Mask

This mask is particularly good for strengthening long, thick hair that can be difficult to manage. Bananas are the perfect fruit for increasing strength, endurance and...shine? That's right, because bananas are the perfect "hair food." Your hair can be dramatically improved by a hair mask the same way that you will see immediate improvement in your face following a facial, and bananas are the number one ingredient in this particular strengthening and volumizing mask. In this article, we will discuss how to make a banana hair mask.

Things You'll Need:
2 bananas
3 tablespoons of mayonnaise
1 tablespoon of olive oil
Essential oils
Tupperware container

How to Make a Banana Hair Mask
Step 1:
Peel the bananas. You can save the peelings for another treatment or throw them away at this time.

Step 2:
Puree the bananas in the blender. Make sure that there are no lumps left in the liquid.

Step 3:
You can still see lumps in this hair mask mixture. It should go back into the blender until it has a smooth, even consistency. Add in the mayonnaise and olive oil. The liquid should become smooth and creamy.

Step 4:
Mix in 2 drops of essential oils. This will make your hair smell a little less like fruit. You can add more than 2 drops if you wish.

Step 5:
Pour the mixture into the Tupperware container. Depending on how much hair you have, you will have enough hair masks for one to four treatments. Save the rest in the Tupperware and store it in the refrigerator. Now, when you have about 30 minutes to spare, you can moisturize and strengthen your hair with your own banana hair mask.
