So my plan for the day changed slightly when school was cancelled, but we are making the most of it…the boys are playing policemen and hockey while I am playing mini spa day! I know that this is not a recipe to eat, but it sure smells like you could! (You actually can……I did a quick taste test). The banana in this mask has benefits of potassium and is a natural softener and it also gives your hair a beautiful shine. The coconut oil is a super moisturizer and is able to penetrate your hair to leave it full of body and also protect if from damage. As the mixture warms under your shower cap, the coconut oil will start to melt and soak into your scalp to help alleviate dry scalp itch! All of these benefits and it’s cost less than $1 per treatment……a lot more budget friendly than a trip to the actual spa!
f I can drown out the sounds of a clanking swords and tattling, the smell of this mask is sure to make me feel as though i was transported to a tropical island…..at least for 30 minutes! One thing is for certain….I will have shinier, softer hair than I did this morning!
Coconut Banana Hair Mask
- 1/2 ripe banana
- 1/4 cup coconut oil
Using a fork, mash all ingredients until smooth. Wet hair and towel dry. Cover all hair with the banana coconut oil mixture and place shower cap over your head. Let sit on hair for 30 minutes to 2 hours. Be sure to keep a rag near by because as the time goes by,the coconut oil might melt and leak out of the cap just a bit. (not a lot, so don’t be scared off) Rinse well in warm water and follow with usual shower routine.
