I loved this!! I used baby food banana instead of the mashed banana, worked great! sectioned the hair lathered it on, combed it through. when i finished putting it all over my head i placed a shower cap on my head, then tied my satin scarf around my head(so it wouldn't drip) i left it on for 35 mins.when i rinsed it out my hair felt so de-tangled and easy to comb through, will definitely use again!! hair type 3c

I used a blender to combine all the ingredients. I used coconut oil instead of olive oil. I left it on my hair (covered with a shower cap) for about 45mins. I rinsed it out , but I still had little pieces of banana in my hair. My tip....wash with shampoo REALLY REALLY good. I also used conditioner. The first time I tried to wash my hair I just kinda slathered the shampoo on and didn't really scrub it in much as the second time. So, if you use this recipe wash it good! All the banana was out of my hair when I washed it out properly. This mask made my hair SUPER soft and shiny! I styled my hair as usual and even my boyfriend complimented me on how soft it was. I have less frizz too! y hair type is 3a/3b. This mask worked really well for me and I will do this again next week. Don't be scared of the banana...I know it can be a pain to have banana in your hair...but blend the ingredients and wash REALLY good.

http://www.keratinresearch.com/keratin-treatment-2/inverto-keratin-mask.html The Mask- packed with high quality moisturizing proteins, amino acids, vitamins, essential oils and The Patented Inverto™ Keratin for the ultimate hair transforming experience like never before. Within 30 minutes you will get amazing results. The Mask is designed to immediately repair, re-build damaged dry frizzy hair and bring back that healthy shiny look you were missing. The Mask will soften, moisturize, strengthen, detangle and repair your hair on the very first time. There is nothing like it out there. In a six months trial research we have compared and tested The Mask to other leading masks like: Kerastase™. Our volunteers (18 total ages 19-55) were candidates with damaged hair due to constant coloring, bleaching, blow drying, ironing, prolong exposure to sunlight and chemicals and also some unfortunate girls with bad hair by all means. The Volunteers were instructed to apply The Mask every 3 days for the first two weeks and weekly thereafter. During the testing period our volunteers reported to us on a weekly basis and we were all amazed by the results: All volunteers noticed immediate improvement in their hair condition and it got better and better with following application. We noticed Healthier, Thicker Fuller Stronger and Shinier hair at start. Volunteers with very dull thin hair noticed that their hair was actually rebuilding itself , Not a surprise at all; Inverto-M™ was formulated to do just that. Many noticed that they had less split ends; Frizz was eliminated in most cases. Also all agreed that The Mask had a pleasant fragrance unlike most other masks. Inverto™ (hydrolyzed keratin) is advanced patented micro keratin polypeptides that are the closest to your own hair amino acids structure; therefore it binds to your hair and literally re-building your damaged hair. Simply there is nothing like it out there

I would think the baby food is better than the actually banana considering it felt a lot of leftovers in my hair. My roots, especially, were softer though. But I'd be too scared to try this again.

I love this! Just tried it and my hair was so soft and shiny! Make sure to use a blender to mush the banana or baby food banana, otherwise you would have the pieces in your hair.
