Dr. Oz’s Banana Conditioner: Tested

  • 2 of 4

Ingredients:

2 or 3 ripe bananas
(That’s all. Could it get any simpler?)

These are the two bananas I started with. The less ripe one smelled so good when I peeled it that I decided to eat it instead. Good thing I have short hair.

Directions:

1. Puree the banana completely. This is important.

2.  Pour the banana mixture into a glass or bowl.

This is the amount of puree from one banana.  I added a few tablespoons of water during the process to get it out of the blender.

3. With your hands, massage the banana puree into your hair.

It felt smooth and milky like a conditioner should, and I knew it didn’t have chemicals in it!

Interesting article.I can't eat ripe bananas, so I buy them while still quite green, and as long as they are kept in a fairly cool place, they don't ripen too quickly. Don't know as I would try them as a hair product.

I think this was meant for April first. I don't think my pipes would react well to banana down the drain.
