As you all know from my 2019 Goals post, one of my goals for this year is to take care of my body and to be debt free. It is for this reason that I am trying to be inventive in the way I take care of my skin and hair needs without spending any money on it.
I started searching for a good hair mask to treat dry hair. That’s how I came across with these DIY hair mask. I thought it was great because I happened to have all the necessary ingredients to make it. (Kitchen Concoctions, https://www.kitchen-concoctions.com/2012/05/avocado-banana-hair-mask/)At first, I was a little apprehensive on putting all those ingredients on my hair. I decided to research about the properties each one of them had to help me treat my dry hair.
We can find vitamis A, B6, D, and E in avocados. This vitamins along with cooper and iron are extremely good for the health of your hair. Avocados also have a high content of monounsaturated fatty acids that are super good for dry hair. This fatty acids can nourish, moisturize, and strenghten your hair.
Bananas are rich in potassium, magnesium, and amino acids. These nutrients provide to your hair shine and moisture. Bananas are also packed with vitamin A,B,E, and zinc. The nutrients found in the bananas are great to improve the manageability of your hair, prevent and control dandruff, protect the natural elasticity of your hair, and prevent split ends and breakage.

Olive oil also contains antioxidants that are wonderful to get rid of free radicals that can age your hair. It helps to keep hair hydrated and manageable, controlling frizz and providing strength.
Egg has vitamin A and E, biotin, and folate. These nutrients are wonderful to keep hair moisturize and healthy. Eggs are also high in protein, niacin, and riboflavin. These nutrients are great to stimulate the renewal and growth of hair.
Avocado, Banana, Olive Oil, and Egg Hair Mask
After learning about all the benefits the avocado, banana, olive oil, and eggs can provide for my scalp and hair I decided to give it a try.
Preparing the MaskThe process is very simple. Combine 1/2 a banana, 1/2 avocado, 1 large egg, and 1 table spoon of olive oil into a blender. Take the mixture and apply it onto the hair and put on a shower cap. Wait for 20 minutes, wash and style your hair as desired.
As I said earlier, the process of preparing the mask is super easy and simple. The ingredients are simple and something that everyone have in their kitchen or they are easily accessible at your local supermarket.
I have to admit that I felt a little grossed out at the thought of having the mixture on my hair, but that quickly went away after I put the shower cap on. There was no weird or nasty smell at all, so to me that is a plus.
After I rinsed out the mask my hair felt amazingly soft. I wanted to see how the hair looked after it was completely dry so I let it air dry. My hair felt alive, it had a natural shine, and it had moisture.
Definitely, I will be keeping this mask on my black book of masks. If you give this mask a go, please let me know in the comments section if you like it or not. Also if you have any hair masks I should try live it in the comments section.
