Ingredients for Hair Mask
How to Make Hair Mask for Silky Hair?
1.Take 1 banana and break it into pieces. Put the pieces into a blender and add 1 cup of milk. Next add a tbsp. of honey and then blend all the ingredients together. You will get a smooth white colored cream. ( I like using this brand for honey.)
If you want to have a running consistency, then add more milk and if you want thicker consistency then add just half cup of milk.
2. If you don’t have a blender available then use a knife or fork to mash the banana and add the remaining ingredients just like above.
Pro Tip: Make sure to mash the banana completely otherwise it can be a little hard to remove the chunks from your hair.

How to Apply This Silky Hair Mask?
- Wrap a towel or cloth over your shoulders. Divide your hair into sections (smaller ones) and clip them.
- Take the first section and then apply the mask from hair scalp towards the end.
- Make sure to apply more on the ends to give them extra nourishment.
- Repeat on all the sections and after that wrap in a shower cap or create a top knot.
If you don’t have these things handy, I would recommend using this set of super affordable hair kit available at amazon. It has 15 pieces which you can use for coloring your hair or applying hair mask.
It’s perfect for those who like to use hair mask and home remedies to pamper themselves especially college girls living in dorms.
Side Note: If you don’t like using diy hair mask then I would recommend this hair mask which I like using for extra nourishment to hair. It keeps my hair frizz free and shiny.
How Long You Should Keep the Hair Mask?
As told before you can keep the mask applied for 30 minutes if you have less time. Otherwise you can apply it for 1 hour or more to give deep conditioning to hair.
Rinsing the Hair Mask Properly
After 30 minutes, wash your hair with plain water by using the inversion method. Read here about it here.
But if you think it’s difficult then you can rinse the mask just as you wash your hair normally.
Once the mask is completely removed, apply conditioner. Make sure to apply more on ends and less near the scalp.
Do not use shampoo for rinsing this mask because they are prone to make hair dry. You can use shampoo after 2 or 3 days of applying this mask so that it works best on the hair.
