🍌 Banana Hair Pack! You will always have ripened bananas at home so why not use it for the hair!. 🍌Did you know that bananas can give your hair a boost in texture, thickness, and shine?. 🍌 Bananas contain silica, a mineral element that helps your body to synthesize collagen and may make your hair stronger and thicker. 🍌Bananas also have antimicrobial properties that can heal flaky and dry scalp, relieving dandruff! Who knew right ?? . All you need is 1 banana 🍌 spoon of honey 🍯 1 spoon oil (olive / coconut/ jojoba) and 1 spoon curd/yogurt. Super easy! Please Blend the banana in the mixer till super smooth till no bits are left . It should be a smoothie consistency. Add the remaining ingredients and apply to hair and massage till the ends . Keep for a 1/2 hour . Wash it off really well WITH SHAMPOO . Comb the hair after using conditioner for sure . To make sure any bits come out . And after you semi dry again please comb the hair out. . Myth – Does honey 🍯 whiten hair? 🍯 The answer is no. Honey has a particular agent that lightens your hair color but does not make it white. Just like how the natural acidity of lemons lighten your hair, the naturally occurring lightening agent in honey (hydrogen peroxide) is a safer alternative to store-bought hair lightening products. . So there you go ! A home Remedy that could work for your hair ! 💃 . #messymama #hair #haircare #banana #ideas #bollywood #kollywood #tollywood #actress #tired #mom #glam #glow #quickfix #momlife #feelinggood #keepingitreal #beauty #hair #simple #momlife #minimalism #nofilter #natural #letsglow #imperfectlyperfect #beautytips #sharingiscaring

According to Reddy, the answer is “no”. “Honey has a particular agent that lightens your hair colour but does not make it white. Just like how the natural acidity of lemons lighten your hair, the naturally occurring lightening agent in honey (hydrogen peroxide) is a safer alternative to store-bought hair lightening products.”
