DIY Banana Hair Mask
Make Your Own Banana Hair Mask.
I’ve been experimenting this winter with some do it yourself concoctions. This is one of them. I hope you enjoy it. It’s easy and super fun to make. Give your kids some of the ingredients and have them help.
DIY Banana Hair Mask
This is the perfect way to use up those over ripe bananas. They can be made into a deeply moisturizing hair mask which can also do wonders for the hair on your scalp. Packed full of Vitamins A, C & E as well as potassium, bananas are the goto fruit for homemade hair treatments. This quick and easy recipe will leave your hair feeling soft and conditioned.

- 1 medium sized ripe banana
- 1 Ripe avocado
- 3 Tbs of Coconut Milk
- Using a fork, mash the banana and avocado together in a bowl.
- Add the coconut milk and mix together well to form a paste.
- Use immediately
- Massage into dry hair and leave for 15 mins.
- For optimal effect, wrap your hair in a warm towel for 15 mins.
- Rinse the paste from your hair with warm water and then wash your hair as usual.
- If you have very dry or damaged hair you can leave out the avocado and replace the coconut milk with coconut oil
Super easy, right? Give it a try and let me know what you think of this DIY banana hair mask.
Have you ever made your own hair products?
Never thought about using banana in my hair, but my hair is very dry so this might be worth a try.
Mine is dry too. I totally get that.

I never would have thought to do this, but it’s definitely a different idea. Plus it smells awesome.

This is really interesting. I’d love to give this a try. My hair could use some love.

I have heard of many things to treat the hair with but never have I heard of bananas. Interesting. That is one food that would be on the bottom of my list to use.
I think I will end up eating the mix if I have to prepare it lol. Kidding aside though, I did not know that you can make you own musk with fruit!
I never knew you could use banana in your hair! Sounds interesting!
This is so cool, thank you for sharing! I’ve actually used bananas on my hair and face before and they work so well! Have a wonderful week and thanks for linking up with the OMHG WW! xx Ashleigh @SimplyWright
I make my own face masks all the time but I never think to make hair masks. This is a great idea!!
I didn’t know you could do this! I know banana and coconut smell great together though. This hair mask sounds really nice!
I am not very experienced with hair products, but I’ve never heard of a banana hair mask. It must smell so good!
I wasn’t aware of this! Does it work? Love to try it for my hair!
I have never tried a banana mask. I will have to try this out some time.
I’ve used many different natural products in my hair…but never banana! I think I would eat this before I could get it in my hair, lol!
I didn’t know I can use banana for my hair! I’d definitely try this one when I have the time!
This is a very natural way to go about hair care! I think I need to try this! Thanks for sharing the how-to!
I have never heard of this before, this sounds really interesting to try!

Wow, I’ve never even heard of a banana hair mask before. It sounds like an interesting hair mask and I might consider trying it.
I have never made my own hair products. But if it’s good for the inside it’s got to be good for the outside.

That looks so easy to make! I always have an extra banana lying around, I’ll be trying this.
As I was reading your great recipe and post – I was wondering, and Ashliegh’s nice comment responded to my question – with yep can also use as a facial – Thank you 🙂

This must work so well! Going to give this a try, bet your hair smells heavenly after.
I would never think to use banana in my hair, but it’s nice to know that there’s another option for using up bananas. Thanks for the recipe!
Wow, I have never made my own hair products. I didn’t know it could be so easy. Thanks for the tutorial.
I had not heard of a banana hair mask but I am intrigued. My hair is so dry and frizz, I bet this would help with that.
I need to try this. My hair has been awful lately, I blame the winter.
I am definitely going to try this for my hair. My hair is so dry in the winter. It could use the tlc.
Omg I’ve never heard of a banana hair mask!! Will have to give it a try 🙂
Somehow we always seem to have overripe bananas and now I know just what to do with them (especially since I have 2 daughters with waist long hair). Thanks for sharing at the This Is How We Roll Link Party at Organized 31.
That is definitely interesting. I love bananas but never tried using them as hair mask. I did try coconut milk when I was young. 🙂
I have definitely never heard of such a thing. But I’m always looking for new things for my hair so I’ll have to try this out.

I have heard about using banana, but I don’t think I could waste a perfectly good banana and avocado for my hair. A hot olive oil treatment works just as good. Coconut oil too.
I’ve tried tomato and egg, but never banana. Mix all three and you’ve got a nice breakfast on your head!

Haven’t tried bananas yet, but I do use olive oil with great success. Must try bananas, at least once, though, as I’ve heard it before but never tried it. I like your other ingredients also. Thanks for sharing, Thrifty Momma!
Ooh, I need to try this! I love DIY hair masks! I’ll have to try it!
I haven’t heard of this one before. It sounds great. My hair could use a little extra love!
