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?

Sounds good. I've been using mostly avocado but I heard about banana. THere is even a recipe where u mix banana and avocado.

You can also use baby food but then it's no longer 100% natural fresh banana.

To get banana out of your hair comb with a teeny comb, whilst in the shower. Then when your out of the shower

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!!!
use babyfood banana jars -- i have never had a problem with banana chunks
Is this conditioner, and other similar ones like the avocado, best applied to damp hair?

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

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

GF Triple Nutrition, Aubrey Organics Honeysuckle Rose, Walgreen's BioInfusion Balm
Leave Ins: AO Honeysuckle Rose, raw shea, coconut oil, sweet almond oil, sometimes aloe gel or KCNT
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.
Spirals, curls & waves, Med-Coarse Texture, Med Porosity, Low Elasticity
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?
