Bananas are a terrific source of potassium and vitamins that keep hair strong and healthy. Strangely the best way for hair to benefit from banana isn't to eat it, but smash in onto your hair. Bananas need to be ripe to use and it is a great way to use overripe bananas for something other than filling up your trash can.
You will need 1 ripe banana and 1 tablespoon almond oil(optional). The first thing to do is remove the peel and mash the banana until it forms a paste. The paste must be as smooth as possible so as to be massaged easily into the hair.
Now add the oil to make the paste smoother; it is worthy noting that is also easier to rinse the mashed banana from your hair if you use the oil. Massage the paste onto the scalp and thoroughly through the hair. Wrap your hair in a plastic wrap to seal it. This enables absorption of the essential vitamins into the hair. To keep the plastic wrap in place,tie a hot towel around it and allow it to sit for 20 minutes without disturbing. After 20 minutes rinse well and shampoo your new healthy hair.
