I know, I know, I shouldn't be so hard on myself but seriously I color my hair every 5 weeks, flat iron it everyday, blow it dry every second day and even flat iron my hair when it's full of product. (Shame on me....) As you can see, my hair takes a beating which is why a fantastic conditioner, in my case, is a must. My absolute favorite hair treatment is MOROCCANOIL Restorative Hair Mask. I adore this product because it keeps my hair shiny, nourishes my split ends and improves the overall texture of my extremely thick hair. Of course, all of these positives come with a negative and that is the price - $60 is a lot to spend on a small tub of conditioner which is why making your own conditioner is fantastic:
Banana Cantaloupe Conditioner
1/2 of a banana (without skin)
1/4 of a cantaloupe (without peel)
1 Tbsp Olive Oil
1 Tbsp Plain Yogurt
Place all ingredients in a blender and mix well until combined. Once done, remove from blender and apply on freshly washed hair, saturating from roots to tips, leaving on for 30 minutes. Rinse with cool water.
Why this works?: Bananas are an amazing natural product for your hair and scalp. They improve manageability and shine while moisturizing your scalp to prevent dandruff. Plus, they smell great AND cost next to nothing.
I actually forgot I had this recipe and as I was going through my computer last night, I re-discovered it. It brought back all the memories of when I would make this at home during my home spa nights. Seriously, I am so excited to go home tonight and make this!
