I have been shedding like a golden retreiver for the past couple of months and it's driving me crazy!! After investing in a new vacuum and dry shampoo (temporary fixes), I decided to do a little more research on what I can do to prevent the shedding and hair breaking... turns out stress and diet are huge indicators...grrr! Since stress and diet are not things I can immediately change I found out bananas, honey, and coconut oils are great ingredients for quick healthy hair results. 

This banana, honey, and coconut oil hair mask is the easiest hair mask to make and it works the best with a hot towel. Your hair cuticles will open and absorb all the nutrients to make your hair silky smooth!

1 super ripe banana
1 tablespoon honey
1 tablespoon of coconut oil

  • Mix in a blender until mixture is smooth and creamy. 
  • Start with the ends of your hair and work your way up to your scalp. Once entire mixture is in your hair, place a shower cap or plastic grocery bag to trap in heat for ultimate silky hair results. I also threw a towel in the dryer to heat up and twist over the plastic bag. 
  • Leave in your hair for 20-30 minutes. Rinse well and follow by washing with shampoo and conditioner. Style as usual.
