but am I better off just eating a banana?
I don't like using homemade food masks. It's difficult to get the food out of your hair then you're flushing it down your pipes.
Not to mention that a lot of the food treatments don't work as well as a product you can buy.
A healthy diet is vital to good hair just like it is for skin. You can use the best skin care products in the world but if your diet is horrible, your skin won't be its best.

I used to eat them a lot but once I cut them out, I noticed a huge difference!!

My hair is basically my hobby!!

I tried bananas after seeing it on Dr. Oz as one of the best hair treatments and I fell in love. It is now the only dc I use because nothing else compares. I mix it with honey and oil. Leave it in for about 30 minutes and rinse it out. The only time I've had a problem rinsing it out is when I bought whole bananas and didn't puree them well enough which is my fault. Now I buy banana baby food so it's not an issues. Comes out easily.
It can be messy to apply. And I rinse in in the kitchen sink so I don't have a bunch of banana on the bottom of my tub. Whenever you use food to dc I don't recommend doing your initial rinse with really hot water especially if you use eggs..

Yes, it's real. No, you can't touch it.
Banana makes a great deep treatment. I just did this for the first time last night. I used organic banana baby food with honey and jojoba oil. I applied the majority of it with an application brush, so it wasn't too messy. It was easy to wash out and my hair felt great afterwards.

My hair looves banana deep treatment. What I do is put two bananas (my hair is thick) and olive oil in a blender on purée. I make sure that there's enough olive oil to make the banana purée smooth.

I'm not a huge fan of homemade deep treatments either because of the mess, but this works.
