25. Banana Mask
Bananas are a very rich source of potassium and vitamins A, E, and C, which make them the perfect choice for homemade hair growth treatments.
We all know our hair needs all of these vitamins to be healthy and grow strong, but because bananas are very rich in calories, we rarely allow ourselves to eat as much as we need.
Well, here’s one very simple recipe that could and will help you enjoy fast-growing, long, and healthy hair – instead of eating that last banana, mash it and massage it into your hair and scalp!
It’s a piece of cake – just pick a soft, ripe one, mash it into a paste, then apply it on your head and cover with a plastic bag.
Wrap a hot towel over your head for maximum results or, in case you are out of hot towels, use a hairdryer to help your hair quickly absorb all the nutrients.
Recipe: Pick a soft, ripe banana, mask it up into a paste (use a food processor if you like, to make sure there aren't any chunks), apply it to your hair, and cover it with a plastic cap or bag. To lock in the nutrients, either wrap a hot towel around your head or remove the cap after 20 minutes and use your blow dryer long enough to help the banana set. Shampoo your hair and rinse well. Some users have reported difficulty rinsing out the banana, but if you end up with a smooth paste, rinsing should go smoothly. You can also add olive oil or almond oil to your paste, or a tablespoon of conditioner.
How Often: Try this treatment once a week for the best results.
