I know I used to be.

We all have experienced bad hair days. While we try fixing the damage with different products available in the market. But most often the problem hides for a while and then just multiplies.

That is why, I have this super beneficial homemade banana hair mask recipe. This hair mask has the power to completely transform your hair within just 2 hours.

Homemade Banana Hair Mask For Damaged Hair

No matter how damaged your hair appear or how frizzy and unmanageable they seem, this hair mask will leave you with the beautiful results. Without further delay let’s have a look at this banana hair mask recipe.

Diy Banana Hair Mask for Dry and Damaged Hair


  • Banana (preferably over ripe): 1 whole
  • Yogurt (unflavored): 2 tsp
  • Honey: 2 tsp
  • Coconut Oil: 2 tsp


  1. Take a banana and mash it. I mashed it using a fork but you can mash it with your hands or a beater whatever you prefer. We just need smooth paste of banana.
  2. Now add yogurt, honey and coconut oil in the desired quantity and mix all the ingredients together. Give it a good mash and mix to form a homogeneous paste.
  3. Strain this mask with a muslin cloth so that no chucks remains. This step is extremely important otherwise you will spend about 2 or 3 hours trying to remove the banana hair from your hair. The first time I applied it, it took me literally an hour and a half to remove banana from my hair. Just because I didn’t strain the mask. Please don’t make the same mistake.

The mask might seem really sticky but it is worth the effort. The hair mask is extremely hydrating and will instantly add a new life to your hair. After you strain the mask, it will become more of a runny consistency which makes it easier to apply.

How To Apply Banana Hair Mask

Start by de-tangling your hair and parting them in smaller sections.

Now apply the mask using your fingers or brush or cotton ball. mask sure you concentrate each and every hair strand generously and concentrate more on your dry ends. This will prevent split ends. I just do it with my bare hands because this mask is extremely hydrating and my hands feel really soft afterwards.

After you have applied the mask to your hair, cover it with a shower cap and relax for the next 2 hours. I know it is a long time but let the mask work its charm.

How To Remove Banana Hair Mask?

After 2 hours, remove your shower cap, and start rinsing with your tap water. The best way is to take a wide tooth comb and just run it through your hair length with water flowing through it. This would take just a minute or two to remove the mask completely.

If you wish, you can shampoo your hair. I skipped it.

Let your hair dry naturally and please avoid blow drying.

You will notice the instant difference in your hair. My hair appeared much more straighter, shinier, healthier, smoother and extremely manageable. I use this mask once a month. But if your hair are more damaged, rough and frizzy hair you can apply this mask twice a month.

This is one of the best deep conditioning hair masks. I swear by it.

      Hi Anamika,
      Once you mix the banana mash with yogurt, honey and coconut oil, the smell of banana is not that strong. And it does not stay on your hair either after you shampoo it. But if you really hate it that much I would like to add that trust me the end results are worth the trouble. See you back soon. 🙂

  • Monica Bruno

    What an interesting idea, I have never heard of using bananas as a mask for the hair. The ingredients are delicious, is it hard not to taste it when you’re making it? I’ll have to give it a try, thanks for sharing!

    • Nimi Popat

      Sure Anne. Do give it a try. It is my personal favorite tricks that actually makes my hair more smooth and manageable. 🙂

  • Alison

    I need to do this with my hair after the cold winter! I liked the tip on straining the banana pieces! I can see how that could really stay with you for a while. I have done masks on my face but never on my hair before so I am interested in what it can do for me.

  • Zion

    Is banana good for hair? Other than that, this looks like a good DYI solution and another impressive trick I might be able to use…hihihihi. The perfume plus this!!

    • Nimi Popat

      Zion, Bananas are extremely beneficial for your hair. Bananas contain potassium which strengthens and fixes damage on your hair.

  • Charu

    Wow it looks so simple and effective. And the best thing is that all the ingredients are freely available in any household. Will surely try it soon

  • Subha natarajan

  • Berlin

    I never thought banana could do some tricks for our hair. The ingredients, too, are available in our kitchen; just need to look for yogurt. Ive commented before that my son loves banana and I buy banana for him alone. Now, he has to share the banana with his mother so i could make some hair mask. 🙂

    • Nimi Popat

      Thanks for coming back Berlin. I really appreciate you taking time and leaving comments. It really means a lot.

    I’ve wrote it down. I don’t have coconut oil at home yet, so I couldn’t do this right away. I have some allergic reactions to something I used in my hair, don’t know what, but it’s really annoying and since this is natural, it must be so great without having any risks of feeling allergic to ingredients.

  • Georgia

    What a fantastic diy! I’m all about hair masks currently as I have bleached hair so I’m trying to add as much moisture back in as possible! I love how accessible all the ingredients are, we all have this lying around the house!! I will be trying this out for sure!!

  • Rhoda Fajardo

    Bananas, coconut oil, yogurt and honey sound more like ingredients for a tropical smoothie! I would try this conditioner recipe on my hair if I don’t end up drinking it (after adding some crushed ice). =)

  • Kat

    I know banana has lots of uses – it can be used as a facial mask, for instance – but I’d only learned just now that you can also use it to make a hair mask! I normally just put mayo or egg white mixture on my hair, perhaps I’ll try this one sometime. Looks promising. 🙂
