If you think your hair needs protein, I'd check the ingredients of the moisturizing conditioner you listed to see if it contains protein, and if not, I'd use it and add one egg, the mashed up banana, some olive oil, and some melted shea butter. If you don't need protein now, I'd avoid the egg (and the conditioner if it contains protein).

One of those immersion stick blenders or a regular blender would work great to mix up these ingredients, since they may not get fully incorporated by hand.

You might enjoy this NC article on porosity if you haven't seen it already.

All the best with your recipe, and let us know what you use eventually.
