Whether youâ€™re looking to repair your hair after a cold, dry winter, or just reinvigorate parched locks after a few too many hours in the summer sun, this DIY hair mask is the perfect answer. With only three ingredients, you can whip it up in no time. Itâ€™s packed with potassium and vitamins A, C and E, which are known to boost scalp and hair health â€” helping hair grow stronger and healthier. This quick and easy recipe makes hair feel soft and conditioned by harnessing the nutritional powers of bananas, avocado and coconut.
1 medium-sized ripe banana
1 ripe avocado
3 tbsp coconut milk
- Using a fork, mash the soft banana and avocado in a bowl.
Add the coconut milk and mix well to make a paste. If you have very dry or damaged hair, you could leave out the avocado and replace the coconut milk with 1 tablespoon almond, coconut, or olive oil.
Use immediately as the mask contains fresh ingredients.
Massage into dry hair and leave for 15 minutes. For optimal effect, wrap the hair in a towel, preferably warm, and leave for 15 minutes.
Rinse the paste from the hair with warm water and wash as usual.
