Hair masks become absolutely necessary for maintaining healthy hair especially during winters. Hair masks help in sealing the lost moisture of the hair and also provide them with required nutrients. Banana hair mask works exceptionally well on dry and dull hair.
Ripe bananas are rich in anti oxidants and potassium and other important nutrients. Bananas are known for their property of imparting glow and shine to things they are rubbed on. Plus, they are also good moisture locking agents. When combined with honey and curd, the banana doubles up its benefits and acts as a great hair mask.
Honey is not only anti bacterial in nature but also a great moisturising agent. It imparts smoothness to hair and tackles the frizz and dullness of hair.
Curd is also great when it comes to moisturizing and taming the dull hair. Curd is loaded with anti oxidants and Vit. C and thus gives good shine to otherwise dull hair. Honey and curd together work as a fine conditioner for hair.
Adding a bit of coconut oil takes care of any dryness left in the hair and thus leaves the hair manageable.
How To Make DIY Banana Honey Curd Hair Mask For Dry Dull Hair
This hair mask takes two minutes to make and is also easy to apply on the hair. I have given the instructions below that are simple to follow. Make sure to strain the mixture properly so that no lumps remain in the hair.
1 Ripe Banana (you may need more for longer hair)
2 tbsp curd
2 tbsp honey
1 tbsp coconut oil (this is optional; add if you have dry hair)
- Cut the ripe banana into small chunks and place them in a blender
- Add curd and honey to the bananas in the blender
- Blend at medium speed
- The mix will now turn into a smooth paste
- Strain the mix through a strainer to obtain a clear paste
- Add coconut oil to the mix
- Apply on hair starting from top to bottom
How to use:
Apply the mix onto hair starting from top of the head to the bottom of the hair. Tie hair in a shower cap or else the mix may start dripping from hair. Keep it on for at least half an hour. Wash off normally with a shampoo. Rinse well.
You can store it in refrigerator for upto 2 days.

Below you can see the before-after pictures of using this hair mask. I absolutely LOVE this hair mask. It makes my hair look very beautiful, shining and salon like. Plus, I know I am not exposing my hair to any harmful and harsh chemicals.
The effect of the hair mask stays upto 2 days. You can conveniently use this mask once a week to maintain the health of the hair.
The only thing to keep a note of while making this mask is that you need to properly mash the mix and strain it. Even after using the blender, some tiny pieces of banana remain in the mask mix. These small, tiny pieces get stuck in the hair and become very difficult to be removed. But if you strain the mix properly, you get a clear paste like I did and in that case there is no problem in applying the mask on hair and using it. The best part is this mask acts as a good face mask too! Just make sure you aren’t acne prone because in that case curd can cause break outs.
I adore this DIY recipe and will suggest you all to try it out at least once. Because I am sure if you use it once, you will keep using it. All the best!
