If you have hair damaged from chemicals (perms, hair straightening or hair coloring), hair tool use (flat irons, curling irons or blow dryers) or chlorine and the sun, try this banana and olive oil mask to help fix those damaged tresses.
Bananas are rich in tryptophan, an essential amino acid that can help strengthen hair, and potassium, a mineral which helps hair maintain a healthy pH balance.
- 1 banana
- 1 tablespoon of olive or coconut oil (you can also use sweet almond oil)
- shower cap
Add a dash of flour if paste is too runny.
Separate hair into 3-5 sections.
Apply mask to each section from roots to ends.
Wind hair into a loose bun if long and place a shower cap over hair. Keep it on for 30 minutes and then rinse out, shampooing and conditioning as usual.
