Default Banana Deep Conditioner

Banana Deep Conditioner:

♥One ripe banana.
♥One tablespoon of honey.
♥One egg yolk.
*Feel free to double the ingredients if you have longer hair.

You should blend it though, or else you'll get chunks that are a pain to rinse out. My hair loves this recipe, however. I use it weekly and my hair feels totally soft afterward.

I know lots of people have different variations on the Banana Deep Conditioner, but this recipe works best for me personally.

I'm curious about other kinds, though. I might try changing it up a little. Have you ever used a Banana Deep Conditioner?

heat it up then slap it on your head. leave it on for 15 min under a hot towel or shower cap then rinse it out. I shampoo it out then follow up with a tea rinse and hot oil treatment.

Does anyone have any tips on how to get the banana chunks out of your hair?

Mix with a blender till it becomes very smooth ( no chance of blending too much ) then pour it through a seive to catch the little seeds, and then you can blend again just to make sure.
You can also use baby food but then it's no longer 100% natural fresh banana.

Default Finally out

Thanks. I had to rewash my hair, brush it in the shower, and comb it out when I was doing my braid outs. It may be a while before I try this again.

I love banana deep conditioners, its currently my most frequent one -- I use baby food jars the 2nd level plastic containers along with a couple tables plain full fat yogurt and olive oil/jojoba oil -- let it sit for 1-2 hours and my hair is super soft and moisturized!!!

Is this conditioner, and other similar ones like the avocado, best applied to damp hair?

I was gonna try a dc like this but replace the egg yolk with olive oil because my hair does not dig egg yolk for some reason. I'm anxious to see how it works!

Would this be considered a PT because of the eggs? If so, then should I follow up with a moisturizing DT afterwards?

yeah the eggs and the banana make it a PT. But I always do a DT with Coconut oil and honey after.

So does a banana treatment without eggs or avocado still act like a PT? I don't think bananas themselves have much protein, and honey doesn't. I'm just kinda looking for more moisture treatments, and I have some bananas, so... experiment time.

Also, I found a Hair Boutique article about banana treatments that's kind of interesting: http://www.hairboutique.com/tips/tip937.htm

i used this conditoner, except I didn't have any honey so I used EVOO instead. I put alot of in it with one banana and some yogurt into the blender. I let it sit the first time for 30 minute, no heat. My hair was soft and moisturized more with this than any other thing, but prior to that i did a pre-oil poo, and then conditioner poo too. This last time I used it I left it on for almost 1hr and a half, hair was soft again, hair seems different too somehow. I did use heat for about 30 minutes and then the rest of the time I let it cool down. I will keep dont this since I'm still deciding what DT to buy form who.

I also add olive oil and lemon juice sometimes, and the egg isn't totally necessary if your hair reacts negatively to it. Just a thought.

I've done this with avocado, EVOO, and a smidge of conditioner overnight. My hair loved it but I noticed a protein-y reaction afterwards. I'll do a oil pre-treatment and moisturizing conditioner afterwards next time.

Tried this today and really liked it. I used one banana, 1 tbp EVOO, 1 tsp honey, 1 tsp Lecthin. Left it on for an hour and cowashed. Next time I may use a low poo because my hair is a little greasy afterwards. But I don't mind because it's Saturday and my curls have never been curlier. My husband even noticed.

Next time I'm going to try baby food bananas.

Hmmm.....I started just using the baby food bananas by itself because my hair seems to love it. At least the day I do it I have great curls with shine and no frizz. But then the next day not so great. I didn't understand what was going on but maybe it is the protein reaction? I have been staying away from protein and my hair seems to like that better.

Wonder if it would work better to add an oil like jojoba?
