In researching natural remedies for healthy hair, I found this article in Self Magazine. I tried it on myself and I loved the results. Hope you will too.
Healthy hair with banana
|1/2 banana||Bananas are rich in potassium, an ingredient that temporarily fills gaps in hair’s cuticle, so strands feel smooth. Vitamins B5, A, E and C in the fruit preserve hair’s natural elasticity, lessening breakage and split ends over time, Dr. Graf says.||In a blender, whip the banana and yogurt until they have a smoothie like texture (about 45 seconds). Work the mask into wet hair, wrap a wet towel around your head and let the mask soak in for 10 minutes. Rinse, shampoo and style.|
|The lactic acid in yogurt helps maintain your hair and scalp’s pH balance, so they stay moisturized and shiny naturally; fatty acids coat and soften hair, says Cygalle Dias, founder of Cygalle Healing Spa in Casa de Campo, Dominican Republic.|
|Tester tip Opt for regular yogurt, not lowfat, because it has a thicker consistency that won’t slide off wet hair. Add a few drops of vanilla or lavender essential oil to de-stress while you wait.|
|In a hurry!!!! Instead of doing it yourself, we recommend Davines’s “ Nourishing Vegetarian Miracle” This cream repairing conditioner is perfect for extremely dehydrated and stressed hair. This product contains rice proteins, avocado plus seaweed to nourish and moisturize hair in depth.
