well dang I don't have rose petals and I have jojoba and not almond oil.
I'll have to save this to be used after I go to the store. It looks good!

This sounds yummy; can I leave out the almond oil if my hair doesn't absorb oils?

i guess you could do that,
maybe try to replace it with aloe vera or more honey instead?

I will add more honey; one of the few things I can count on my hair to love consistently. Aloe makes my hair squeaky. I think this will be a great monthly DT. It is what I was planning to do when I started eliminating 'cones and such from my hair care routine, i.e., more natural, food based conditioner recipes.

Thanks for sharing this, esmeralda; have you tried it on your hair yet?

i havent yet..as i"m thinking of ordering the real stuff from curlmart first!!
oh,remember to blend the banana really well...those bits can be hard to wash out...!

now where can i get dried rosepetals??
most potpurristuff is just artificially perfumed.
anyone know?

i would not store this for a long time,as we all know what old bananas look like..

I was thinking of doing this and applying the CJ hibiscus and banana after . I think the recipe is more like a reconstructor type of conditioner, so I would use the second DT to smooth the hair afterwards, as well as give added hydration.

I would definitely use it on the same day I made it as well, whilst the ingredients are still active.

I don't know where to buy dried rose petals but one of my friends grows roses ( I'm sure you could do this with fresh roses from the florists, also), and she sundries the petals for a day or two, laid out on a tray in her garden, so that's a good homemade option to go along w/the homemade DT

I had a bad experience with this. It took me 10 minutes to rinse it all out! That's why I use the CJ one, but I would probably like the smell of this one better, because I'm not a huge fan of the CJ scent.

I had a traumatic hair-banana experience so I won't even try this. I'm perfectly happy to buy the CJ!

Years ago, I tried twice to make my own banana conditioners. Even whipping the banana with a stick blender, I always ended up with bits of banana glued into my hair. It took me forever and a tub of conditioner and a fine tooth comb to get it all out...both times I tried it. Yuck. I'm sure there's a trick to completely liquifying the banana, maybe you just have to be sure to use really ripe bananas.

Oh, that's disappointing then. My main problem with banana is those stringy bits, but I thought that was because I didn't blend it up thoroughly. Also, to me the stringy bits were worse on the really ripe ones. OK, now I'm really .

Just my 2 cents, bcz I don't even like the smell of bananas, but I would definitely remove the stringy things first, and I don't see why you couldn't simply use old fashioned rosewater from the drugstore, in place of the water + rose petals

That's a good idea; I could lightly peel off the outer layers of the bananas to get rid of the stringy bits. It seems so obvious now you say it!

As for the rosewater; that's what I was planning to do, I have a big bottle sitting in the cupboard almost unused.
