After spending all day in the intense sun yesterday at Santa Cruz, my hair was THIRSTY. I love my Oatmeal Water Conditioner (see under Recipe tab) but I needed to give it some deep conditioning power. There are many banana conditioner recipes out there, but I wanted to build on what I knew works for my hair. I thought of using coffee off the top of my head, did some research, and decided to try it with the banana. I LOVE the results!!!
Prepared Oatmeal Water Conditioner Recipe substituting avocado oil for olive oil (optional)
1/2 overripe banana
2 tablespoons coffee
I wanted to include a picture of how ripe my bananas were so you can visualize what I used (Just use 1/2 a banana!). The softness and gooeyness of overripe bananas are perfect for deep-conditioning.
Prepare Oatmeal Water Conditioner Recipe. Cut up the 1/2 of a banana into 1-inch pieces. Add the bananas and coffee to conditioner and use a stick blender to mix. Use immediately.
Apply after shampooing to saturate hair. Cover head with plastic cap and allow to sit for up to 1 hour. This conditioner can be used with a bonnet dryer for deep penetration. Rinse hair and scalp thoroughly until water is clear. Do not use as a leave-in.
After pic…never thought my hair would blow in the wind 🙂
I would love your feedback on this recipe! ❤ Ally
