What’s not to love about banana and chocolate?
This mask smells SO good! I slathered it all over my hair + body. It made my hair super soft + shiny without weighing it down. My skin felt smooth + moisturized. What a great shower treat!
One of the perks of my job is playing with good-for-you ingredients. I get to test out new beauty treats + share them with you guys. So, I’m pretty spoiled when it comes to treating my hair + skin as self-care is part of my job! But, I have to say, this one is one of my favorite masks. It smells delish + it works!
I’ve found overripe bananas to be easiest to rinse out, + this is a great way to reduce food waste 🙂
Make sure that the banana is blended until smooth + be sure to rinse your hair THOROUGHLY. I had to check in the mirror to make sure there were no banana bits stuck in my hair.
It’s also really moisturizing for the skin, + this recipe makes enough to use on your hair, face, + body. Yum!
1 Tbs water
1/2 overripe banana
Blend all ingredient until smooth (banana chunks are difficult to rinse out).
Apply to wet hair.
Use any leftovers on your face + body.
Rinse thoroughly, making sure no banana is left in your hair.
Eat the other half of your banana. Nutrition is important for hair health too!
