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.
