DIY Homemade Banana Deep Hair Conditioner

1 of 2

Bananas, coconut milk and honey might sound more like ingredients for a tropical smoothie, but the combination is actually an effective deep hair conditioner. It’s easy to make, will nourish your hair and leave you with soft, smooth and shiny locks.

Bananas are rich in potassium that strengthens hair, minimizes breakage by restoring your hair’s natural elasticity, and facilitates repair of damaged hair. Bananas also moisturize your hair as they contain natural oils and about 75% water.

Strong, moisturized hair also is less prone to frizzing and tangling. In addition, the fruit is packed with vitamin A, B6, C and E, as well as zinc and iron.


With bananas as a base, this homemade deep hair conditioner also includes:

  • Coconut milk, which is loaded with antioxidants and fats. It conditions your hair, boosts hair volume, and fortifies your hair with proteins and oils.
  • Coconut oil, which contains vitamin E and healthy fatty acids that moisturizes your hair, encourages growth, adds shine, and reduces keratin loss. The lauric acid in coconut oil gives it antibacterial and antifungal properties that also prevent dandruff.
  • Honey, which is a natural humectant, helps hydrate your hair and lock in moisture. It is also rich in zinc, iron, sulfur, and B vitamins that promote healthy hair growth.

  1. I got to know the first time that bananas can be used for our hair.Please be with me each and everytime for this new and amazing information.

  2. I would like to say thanks for sharing your knowledge on line. I have been looking for these types of home remedies although I haven’t tried them yet. I’m looking forward to good results. Thanks again.

  3. can you add more on facial home made? like that can relieve scar,body odor, bad breath and etc. thanks really like your blog keep it up!

  4. I tried the banana mask, but substituted 2 tsp olive oil. I have tried it with and without the avacado. This is amazing. My fine blond hair has more shine and elacticity. I find that banana’s over ripe work best. I have used it 3 times and I get comments all the time. You do not need a blender. Mash up a banana or 2, add 2 tsp oilve oil, stir… Apply to dry hair, and work into your scalp and hair. Leave on for 30 minutes. Then wash with a mild shampoo, and your regular conditioner. Try to avoid flat irons. Avoid over processing your hair. If you need a weave. Ask for 5 foils instead of a full or partial. The effect is healthy hair. It works.

  5. Amazing, it seems delicious and effective too hahaha. Right now I am using the pro naturals argan oil hair mask and it is incredible good moisturizing the hair completely!

  6. Hi all,
    I just tried this recipe out. The hair does feel softer and yes it adds shine. I alsi added some olive oil to it.

    The hard part us the banana!I dud a proper blender smoothie with it!but once its in the hair u gave some tiny bits of banana all over the hair! Its suoer hard to wash
    away. The banana remains as residue and I had to shampoo over again to get it off!

    no it does not untangle hair easily and yes it gives volume by fluffing off the hair!

    1. The best way to get rid of the banana after using this mask is to comb your hair with a wide toothed comb during shampooing.

    1. I always do this but with Avocados-Honey+ Mayo if you use a sifter maybe two on top of each other to push out the banana or avocado you wont be left with residue as you will just be extracting the liquid out of it

    1. Do you mean it will make my hair turn white. I am almost 80 years old, and my hair is still mostly a dirty blonde or mousy color, with grey hairs and black hairs and white hairs mixed in, but not enough of the grey or white to lighten it. I love white hair. How do you use the honey to make your hair turn white?

  7. First of all, THANK YOU to ALL the contributors of information on this site! I just discovered this website and so far everything I’ve seen is great!! I already have a folder full of things printed that I want to try 🙂
    Now, I just have a couple of questions….I saw someone else ask the first one but I didn’t see an answer to it so this is why I’m asking again….I apologize if I overlooked the answer…..
    1. Once all the ingredients are mixed together, how long will the mixture last, refrigerated, of course?
    2. My hair is on the longer side, a couple of inches below my bra strap, do I need to double ANY of the ingredients?

    Thanks & keep up the GREAT work y’all!

    1. i guess it should last for a couple of days if stored in the refrigerator, as for the amount…it should be sufficient for your length, maybe you could add more coconut milk

  8. how long can i keep this for? or i need to make a fresh batch every time i want to condition my hair? I’m loooooving it.wish i could bottle it and send to my mum!!

  9. This is a wonderful conditioner. The idea of using a jar of banana baby food would be a great way to avoid needing a blender. Now I have found a great way to use overripe bananas besides making banana bread, too.

    1. you should apply about once every few weeks or once a month, you don’t want to over stress your hair, considering it has to get used to it. it’s better to do it once a month 🙂

  10. Thanks for the sharing this wonderful conditioner recipe. Can v apply dis on oily hairs also or dis is just fr normal or dry hair type

  11. I have relaxed hair and I tried this hair mask last week and it really worked wonders. Added sheen and made my hair softer, with a silky feel to it. Also, I normally section my hair when I dry it and when I removed my clips where I had rolled and clipped them after I had dried all sections, my hair had nice curls in such a short time. I am thinking this would work really well with a roller set. Oh, rather than shampoo after the treatment, I shampooed before and just rinsed it out with water. If you use a blender and blend till there are no chunks, it washes off easily. The consistency is a bit runny, so be sure to protect whatever area you will be sitting and your clothes. I will try putting a head band over the plastic cup next time and see if this helps.

  12. I found this site by pure coincidence and I was just reading the comments. I must say, I am quite eager to try these on my hair, but I wonder if it will work on my African hair. And that Aloe vera face mask… Hmm, can’t wait!

    1. It depends on your definition of “African hair”. Namely, this should work on all hair types. However, if you have what they call the “koily” hair texture, I suggest you strain the banana mixture before putting it in your hair, lest you get banana bits stuck in there (ask me how I know!)

  13. Really it works.. but my problem is how to get rid of the banana that is sticking to my hair even after the wash. I need any easy tips pls.. help me out to check diz problem.

  14. Works great but the bananas got stuck in my hair . I washed and mixed mayonnaise and some conditioner together and my hair turned out great.

  15. Works great but I added in apple cider vinegar to the mix. The bananas got stuck in my hair so I washed again and then mixed some mayonnaise and conditioner together and combed through my hair rinsed out and my hair came out perfect. Will do again.

  16. I simply put all ingredients into a Ziploc bag and smooth them out with a rolling pin. After all the ingredients are smooth, I cut one tip of the bag and used it to pipe on my hair .Less mess ,no stress.

  17. I recently gave my hair a deep protein treatment and of course, followed with a deep moisturizing treatment, used a leave in conditioner, twisted my hair, secured it with my satin scarf and went to bed. Well the next morning, when I removed the scarf, my hair looked so dry and looked horrible!! (This was last week/, I My hair needed some serious moisture!!!!!!)
    I went searching for a Deep Hair Moisturizing Hair Treatment and ran across your site. I found this today (18 March 2018) and looked at all the ingredients and I had ALL of them! Since I cook with coconut oil, I also purchase the milk and creme for additional meals. I made this wonderful hair moisturizer; I used my blender, put the setting on puree and WOW! I tasted it and I liked the way it taste…I wonder. But anyway, I did the treatment, I sat under my hair dryer for about an hour and a half, let my hair cool down, shampooed (with my natural homemade Castile Tropical Shampoo); used my coconut oil to twist my hair and used Softee Styling Gel with Argan Oil on the ends and pinned my hair up and I am impressed! I prefer to make my own natural hair products and recently used and average store bought hair packets, (I won’t do that again).
    After the shampoo, my hair was so soft and easy to detangle (my hair wasn’t as tangled and separated nicely, I could run my fingers through my hair and there were no knots). I also noticed, no breakage! No hair was on the comb when I sectioned my hair! My hair was soft, smooth, felt great, looked great and I was very pleased with the overall appearance of my hair! THANK YOU AND THANK YOU!
    I didn’t realize how much this great hair moisturizer makes! No problem, I went downstairs to the basement, retrieved a pint size canning jar, poured the contents into the jar, labeled and dated and placed in the refrigerator. I will check daily to ensure the mixture is still good to use. I like this, I plan to continue to do this at least once a week! My hair does get dry and I may have to moisturize more often. But this is simple, quick and I love this! My natural hair looks so healthy after one use! THANK YOU!!!!
