Banana and Black Seed Deep Conditioner
This balanced conditioner both strengthens and improves elasticity. It’s super hydrating, moisturizing, repairs sun damage, conditions the cuticles, fights dandruff, promotes hair growth, protects against split ends and breakage, and is rich in potassium and vitamins A, C, and E, which promote cell turnover. This is good for the hair and the scalp.
It’s quick and easy to make and wellllll worth the effort.
1 ripe banana*
1 ½ tbsp Black Seed oil
1 tbsp Jamaican Black Castor oil
¼ cup of Aloe Vera Gel
* TIP: I like to substitute 1 jar of banana baby food to ensure the smoothest puree and no pieces.)
1. Puree ripe banana in blender or food processor until completely smooth. If you think you’ve blended it well, blend it some more. (No. Seriously. Please see *TIP above)
2. Place pureed banana in a bowl and stir in the remaining ingredients.
How to Use:
1. Apply to hair in sections, making sure to cover every strand. (Don’t miss those dry, dense, hidden areas, Sis. Get all up in there.)
2. Cover with a plastic cap for 30-60 minutes.
3. Rinse out well.
If you do find that you have any pieces in your hair, use a rinse out conditioner to help you to slide those pieces out. You can use a detangling brush to help. But again, I highly recommend using real bananas baby food as a substitute.
Things like bananas, avocados, and even aloe vera pulp can leave behind pieces that you’d find yourself picking out of your hair for days. But, these ingredients are so worth any hassle. But, heed the tips to avoid those hassles. We don’t need hassles in our lives.
