When i woke up one day, my skin felt really dry and stretchy even though i moisturised before heading to bed. So i decided to make a deep moisturising pack for my skin and hair.
After using this face mask, My skin certainly became super soft and supple. I couldn’t see the dry patches on my cheeks anymore. But i could still feel it when i touched the dry patch. But once i used this for a week, there was a complete change in my skin.
The dry patches were gone and my skin became smooth to touch. It was soft since the first time i used the banana egg yolk and olive oil face mask but, my skin became kind of slippery smooth later on. I certainly hope that makes sense. 🙂
I love this face mask as it treats my dull skin during the winter season.
Here i have mashed the banana slices with a spoon as you can see the tiny chunks in the below pic.
Keep in mind that, This consistency is not suitable for a hair mask. You need a much smoother paste to avoid creating a mess with pieces stuck to your hair.
Hair Mask Recipe
- Banana – 1 whole over ripe banana
- Egg – 1
- Olive oil – 1 Table spoon
As a hair mask, it makes my hair tangle free, shiny and soft that i kept touching my hair unconsciously. You can add one whole egg which would make it the perfect deep moisturising and nourishing hair mask with the proteins, vitamins, and minerals.
It is better to use a blender to mixture this hair pack as, mashing with a spoon would leave tiny chunks of banana behind. It is really tough to get these pieces off your hair.(Done That 🙁 :() I recommend blending everything to save time and water.
Try this banana face pack and let me know how it goes for you.
Have A Wonderful Day 🙂
