Bananas ... one of my favorite fruits and scents! Apparently, these little yellow cuties are packed with a moisturizing amino acid called tryptophan and combined with potassium (a powerful softening agent), they are perfect for nourishing winter-ravaged skin, hair and lips! Burt's Bees makes a beeswax and banana hand cream that I love to use on my feet, Ulta has a Banana Bliss Shower Smoothie, LUSH makes a banana body cream, and The Body Shop sells banana shampoo and conditioner. All of those sound so yummy and I can't wait to try them! I found a recipe for a DIY Moisturizing Banana Hair Mask ... it claims to repair dry or damaged locks! I am going to give it a try and I will let y'all know if it works ... feel free to try it yourself at home and let me know what you think!
In a bowl, mash 1 ripe banana.

Add 1 tbsp. honey and 1tbsp. olive oil; whip until smooth.

Massage into damp hair.

Cover hair in plastic wrap and leave-in for 30 to 60 minutes.

Rinse well.

I have been having one banana each morning since last summer. I missit if I do not have them. They are fabulous and packed with so much nutrients.

I have just finished making 2 dozen Banana muffins and a double batch of Banana Rain Coast Crackers and I still have about 7 Bananas on my counter. I am going to put one on my hair now! Thank you for the inspiration I will let you know how it works for me.
