I've been really getting into DIY beauty products such as masks, scrubs and lotions since I had so much fun making my first one, that I have decided to experiment with this homemade coconut and banana hair mask. It's a really summery masks which smells like a cocktail you'd sip on whilst on a Caribbean holiday and the best thing about this hair mask is that it is 100% natural. I picked the ingredients not only to suit the summery theme, but also because banana (when used in hair masks) has many benefits such as: decreasing hair loss by aiding the scalp and soothing itchy/flaky scalps, softening the hair, preventing split ends as it contains vitamins A, B and C. Coconut oil hydrates the hair, and Argan oil is a known miracle worker for any type of hair as it smooths flyaways, nourishes the hair and softens it.

What you will need:
2 bananas (preferably really ripe, to the point where they're brown)
1 coconut
100% pure Argan Oil (I'm using Argan Oil by Nouris*)
1 lemon (if you're blonde/fair haired as lemon lightens the hair!)

This isa really quick and simple mask to do: you've got to mush the bananas and the coconuts to a complete paste. I find that buying an older coconut, or waiting until it's pretty old is the best, as then more oil comes out from it. You absolutely must mush these ingredients into a smooth paste, otherwise (like I found out the hard way) some bits get in your hair and although it's not a hard job to brush them out, it's not really an experience that you want. I use a pestle & mortar to blend the paste together, and work off any anger.
Once both of these ingredients are in a paste form, mix them together. Now add a tiny bit of lemon juice, just a quick squeeze! Follow by a few pumps of Argan oil - judge how much you need by the length of your hair.

Once you've got the PASTE, remember PASTE otherwise be prepared to pick stuff out of your hair, wet your hair and smooth the paste on. Leave it there for about 15 - 20 minutes and follow by your usual hair wash routine!
I love how natural this hair mask is, and how strong a revived my hair felt after it. If you make too much, remember you can always freeze this mask and use it another week!
