Benefits of Fruits for Our Tresses – Bananas
Bananas are Delish


Hello My Dears,

Hope you and your family continue to be all well.

Well, today will talk you bananas, hahahahahaha, sorry just could not resist! 

Bananas are a favorite for all especially here in the Caribbean. Let’s dive in. 

Condition Hair –

Bananas offer many natural benefits to keep your hair looking fabulous, like folic acid that makes hair shine, while also keeping it moisturized and well hydrated.” 

Enhance Hair Health And Appearance

“Bananas contain folic acid that makes your hair shine. They also keep your hair moisturized and well hydrated. The potassium in the fruit and the other natural oils also improve hair health.”

Boosts Hair Growth –

“Antioxidants in banana can also infuse your scalp and hair with a stronger defense system, and decrease oxidative stress — a major reason for hair to look brittle and aged. Using banana overtime can make hair follicles stronger, and, as a result, grow longer.” 

Banana for Hair –

“Banana is great for hair growth as it is rich in vitamins, calcium, potassium, carbohydrates and natural oils that help the overall nourishment of the hair. It also promotes shiny, silky hair with great elasticity and control. A simple banana mask can treat dandruff and hair fall. The best part is that it is natural and organic making it completely safe to use for just about anyone.”

“The major benefits of banana for hair growth includes high potassium that strengthens your hair and reduces breakage. It is not only great for your hair but your overall health. Another reason people having been using banana for hair growth for many eons is that since it is a home remedy, we need not turn to any chemical-based facilities for treatment.”

I have always loved bananas and it seems they are the # 1 Go To Hair Masks:

Take out the gel from the aloe vera leaf.
In a blender, transfer the aloe vera gel and bananas.
Blend the contents until you get a thick paste.
Apply the paste onto your hair using a brush.
Ensure the paste gets deep into your hair roots.
Coat the paste on your entire scalp and hair.
Leave it for 2 hrs. Rinse your hair with cold water and shampoo, pat dry.

*Make sure you blend the bananas well as it tends to stick in our hair, so blend, blend, blend and blend again.*
