1. Oil Prep

Dry hair? Oiling is the solution. We know it can feel heavy in the summer but look at the bigger picture: Oil strengthens your hair follicles to help promote growth and maintain the lustre. You can use any oil of your preference, we recommend coconut, almond, sesame oil or for a full spectrum of nourishment Ahé Naturals Hibiscus & Bhringraj hair oil. After letting it sit for a couple of hours, you can then start prepping the hair mask.

2. Go Bananas

Our main ingredient, Banana, is packed with many important nutrients that helps improve your hair for an extra soft and shiny look. Banana also has Silica, which is known to boost collagen production; anti-microbial properties that can help in restoring dry and flaky scalp and Vitamin C, Vitamin B6. It is also known to be beneficial in reducing dandruff. For quantity, you can add half to one banana, depending on the length of your hair.
[You can munch on one with your nut butter of choice, as you prep your mask. Healthy snack alert!]

3. Add some freshly grated Coconut

An ingredient that needs no introduction. Coconut contains powerful antioxidants, vitamins B, C & E and a high protein profile that supports the protein your hair is made up of, keeping it stronger. You can use a couple of tablespoons if you have longer hair. A tablespoon should be sufficient for shorter hair. The healthy fats in coconut not only have amazing health benefits for your hair but also for your body too. So again, don’t forget to pop a couple of pieces as you grate them up.

4. Add in some Honey

Consider this as a gift from nature for your body, mind and soul. Honey has both emollient and humectant properties, making it a great hair moisturizer. Emollients smooth the hair follicles, adding shine to dull hair. Humectants bond with water molecules, adding moisture to dry strands. By moisturizing and locking in shine, honey can help restore the natural lustre of your hair. Add in not more than a couple of tablespoons, depending on the length of your hair.

5. Did you know how good Methi is?

Yes, Methi seeds work wonders for your hair and gut! Also called fenugreek seeds have high protein and nicotinic acid content, which are known to be beneficial against hair fall, dandruff and in treating a variety of scalp issues like dryness of hair and hair thinning. Add only a tablespoon and make sure the seeds are soaked overnight in some water, to balance it all.

Time to hit blend!

Put all the ingredients together and blend it all up. When you will open the lid, you’ll be surprised with the thick, creamy paste and the fine aroma of the paste hitting your senses. So good!

Apply the paste on your oiled hair, let it sit for about 30-40 minutes and then wash it off. Use Ahé Naturals Hibiscus, Bhringraj & Shikakai Shampoo followed by the Wild Banana & Coconut Milk ConditionerIts non-greasy quality makes it an excellent moisturizer for the hair. It softens dry brittle hair and helps repair split damaged ends as well.
