What You Will Need:

1 avocado

1/2 can of coconut milk

1/4 cup of mayonnaise

1/4 cup of honey

1/2 banana

Benefits:

Avocados contain many vitamins and nutrients that help with the growth and nourishment of hair.  The high fat content of avocados helps hair that is dry and prone to breakage.

Coconut milk is extracted from grated coconut.  This milk contains saturated fat and vitamins such as C, E, B1, B3, B5 and B6.  Coconut milk adds protein to your hair while also helping to restore dry, damaged, and brittle hair.

Mayonnaise has long been used to add in moisture and nourishment to damaged hair.  Mayonnaise contains vinegar which can help to restore the pH balance to your hair.  Like the coconut milk, the protein in mayonnaise binds to your hair, helping to fill in the gaps and strengthen weak hair.

Honey is a natural humectant and works to attract moisture to your hair.  Being a natural emollient (another term for a softener), honey helps to smooth your hair.  Honey is also a natural antioxidant, helping to keep your scalp healthy which further stimulates growth.

Bananas contain a number of vitamins ( such as B6, C, biotin, copper, and potassium) which help to restore strength and increase hair volume.  They also help to protect the hair from the sun and the harsh effect wind can have on your hair.  Bananas can help to increase the moisture content of your hair, as well as reduce frizz.

Directions:

Simply combine all ingredients in your blender (as usual, I’m using my beloved Nutribullet) and mix until smooth and well combined.  If you find that there are bits of banana or avocado, pour the mixture through a strainer so that those pieces are caught there (and not in your hair).

Apply to freshly washed hair.  Cover with a plastic cap.

Sit under a warm dryer, or use a conditioning cap, for at least 20 minutes.

Rinse with cool water.

Add a leave-in conditioner and proceed with styling.

Final Notes:

This conditioner mix contains a combination of both moisturizing and strengthening ingredients.  Depending on your hair, you may or may not need to follow up with a more moisturizing conditioner.  If you decide to use a moisturizing deep conditioner, or to just go ahead with styling, make sure you at least apply a leave in (one that you do not rinse out) conditioner to your hair prior to styling.

Make sure you watch the video below to see how I made, and used, the conditioner.
