Banana Hair Mask

Bananas are a great way to combat and rectify damaged hair caused by over-exposure to dirt, pollution, toxins, and environmental elements.  Bananas contain a rich source of potassium, carbohydrates, natural oils, and vitamins all of which are important ingredients for improving the overall health of hair.  By using bananas as a key component in hair care treatments you will notice increased manageability, growth, shine, and the ability to control symptoms of dandruff.

This beneficial mix of properties helps soften, strengthen, and protect the hair as well as maintaining its natural elasticity.  The abundance of vitamins found in bananas help repair and protect the hair from sun damage and are vital ingredients for adding volume to the hair.  The vitamin E present is very effective for treating dandruff and assist the scalp in retaining moisture helping to prevent split ends and hair breakage.


1 Bananas (potassium contained can soften the hair shaft)
1 egg (moisturizer)
3 tablespoons coconut milk (to strengthen the hair follicles)
3 tablespoons honey (natural moisturizer)
5 tablespoons olive oil (a very good conditioner)


  • Mash bananas, then mix egg, milk, honey and olive oil in a bowl.  Mix very well and ensure that there are no lumps.
  • Apply on the hair and cover with a shower cap. Leave on hair for 15-30 minutes then wash with shampoo.
  • Enjoy your soft, bouncy hair!

      Hola! David…it should not affect the colour. I use it and my hair remains light. I would add mayonnaise instead of yoghurt though for extra softness. If you wanted the hair to remain light, add some chamomile to it too.
