We go great lengths to stand out: putting on makeup, wearing designer clothes, and undergoing beauty treatments. The hair is one aspect of beauty everyone looks out for. It is, as they all say, “one’s crowning glory”. Keeping hair hip and chic is troublesome, especially when one basks under the sun for long periods. Getting hair treatments at expensive salons may do the job but notice how these chemical treatments don’t seem to last.

How do you address damaged, frizzy, tangled, dry, dull, thin hair? The list of hair problems is endless! It is time to adapt a more natural hair care routine with this one essential ingredient found at home: banana.

Banana is known for its countless health benefits. While there are a lot of other natural sources of potassium, bananas contain a significant amount. Not only that, the fruit is loaded with other vitamins and nutrients: Vitamins A, B, and E, zinc, amino acids, and more. Banana is known to be a natural hair conditioner and it is great for strengthening and thickening fine hair.

Because of its numerous benefits, women opt to use banana in natural homemade beauty treatments for hair repair. While banana treatments are available mostly at spas and salons, there are lots of DIY natural hair recipes you can try at home. These DIY hair masks are easy to make and are also free from chemicals that may be harmful to hair.
