Banana and Avocado Hair Treatment

My friend Stephanie is a health food nut who refuses to put anything chemical on her body or her hair. So when I asked her how she keeps her naturally curly hair so glossy she gave me her recipe for this deep conditioning treatment she uses about once a month. She also loves it because it’s a great way to get rid of ripe bananas and avocados.

Ingredients:

  • 1 ripe banana
  • 1 ripe avocado
  • 1 tbsp of wheatgerm oil – You can substitute olive oil if you, like me, don’t have wheatgerm oil or time to run to your health food store for some.
  • A few drops of essential oils, such as lavender, rose, sweet orange, or jasmine. Stephanie uses essential oils to mask the smell of the wheatgerm oil.

Preparation:

Mash all of the ingredients in a bowl or better yet, use a blender. Shampoo hair, comb it out and towel-dry.
Apply mask to hair, including the scalp if you want. Or you can just deep condition the ends.
Put hair in a shower cap or wrap it in cling wrap and let it sit for about 15 minutes, longer if you prefer. Rinse mask out in the shower.
Place a heavy duty paper towel over the drain to catch the avocado and banana bits.
