DIY Banana Hair Conditioner For Smooth And Silky Hair

By Bindu Vinodh

A hair wash is complete only when you condition your hair after shampooing. This is because shampoo cleans the hair off excess oil and dirt, and opens the hair cuticles, while the conditioner seals it back by locking up the nutrients and keeps away pollutants. This process helps in strengthening hair shaft, prevents split ends, breakage, and hair loss. Further, conditioning helps in keeping the dryness away and seals the moisture back in the hair.

Deep conditioning treatments can get too expensive when done in a hair salon, or when you purchase conditioners from stores available as packaged products, not to mention the overload of chemicals in them. Furthermore, most of these conditioners may strip hair off their natural oils. Therefore, making your own hair conditioner with natural ingredients at home may be a great way to nourish your locks with the required nutrients.
