Dr. Oz

This week I was watching Dr. Oz and he did a show on the age of our hair versus our real age. He also said salmon is the best food to eat for hair and bananas the best conditioner for damaged hair. I actually made a banana conditioner for the first time tonight.

In these segments he talks about relaxing, coloring, stress and heat.

I can't believe that black woman let him put bananas on her hair.
Dr. Oz always offer good information. But bananas, I never heard of that on any hair boards. Please let us know how it turns out.

I have heard of bananas in homemade conditioners on hairboards. I have stumbled across several recipes. Some ladies use banana babyfood.

It's no stranger than using honey, yogurt, eggs, mayo, all types of oils, vinegar, and baking soda to name a few of the foods folks use in their hair.
Good information! Thanks for posting it. I've heard of using baby food bananas in conditioners to avoid left over chunks in the hair. I might have to give it a try.

@adthomas - let us know how it turns out.

Once you've created a habit it's so hard to break it because you don't know how to live without it.

Cool! I had a salad yesterday with salmon in it and a banana blueberry smoothie.
Thank you for posting this. It just reinforces why I'm glad I stopped believing in the "lye"

I blend the banana until smooth. Also add coconut oil & honey. Amazing!

Ok. I did the banana treatment and I'm in love. The best homemade DC I've ever used. I put two bananas in my blender then added honey and olive oil. I ran it through my hair with my fingers and put on a shower cap for 20 minutes. (My hair gets mushy if I DC too long). I probably didn't need the cap because the mixture is warm and kind of self heating. Since I don't use heat or chemicals, I didn't think it would do much for me but it made my hair feel stronger yet soft.

Only down side would be for people who are CG. I did an initial rinse, then co-washed twice and couldn't get it all out. Wasn't strong enough. One time using my moisture shampoo and the banana was completely gone. Hope this helps.
I love love love Dr Oz!!! I agree completely with the use of all natural products. I've been using home made conditions for over a year now. My hair is so much better.

Thanks for sharing!

Seriously. You know there are those people who color, flat iron, and color their hair all in the same month. What do you think is going on with all of those put together? I'll say what I always say... THANK GOD I'M NATURAL!!!

I see a lot of those who flat iron and lighten their hair (bleach) with major split ends and dry hair. And I have seen plenty of women who relax their hair that have horrible hair lines or what I personally hate, the texture at the hairline doesn't match the texture of the rest of the hair.
