Here's an economical way to bring life back into your hair using a homemade Organic Hair Conditioner: Mash one banana with 2 TBSP. of olive oil until smooth. Apply generously throughout your hair. Cover with a shower cap or plastic wrap and allow to sit for 20-30 minutes. Follow-up with a shampoo and rinse.

I am a cosmetologist. I never tried this remedy but I'm sure it will work. Banana has lots of benefits for skin too. (10/12/2007)
It does not work. I got banana all over my hair and couldn't get rid of it.
As a kid I had very long hair and my mother always used mayonnaise on my hair. Works good to detangle too. She would also rinse my hair with flat beer. Said it made my hair shine. (05/07/2008)
I tried the mayo one with low fat mayo, don't bother unless you're using the real deal, it's the fat that makes the hair shine. (08/14/2008)
My daughter and I use this on our natural hair. It's my grandmother's secret that kept everybody's hair very beautiful in my family.
Real mayonnaise (a good amount depending on hair length)1 tablespoon of pure olive oil, 1 tablespoon of pure honey, 2 eggs. Mix in a bowl then put on your hair from root to tip. Cover with shower cap for 30-45 minutes. Then rinse out and style. You will be amazed. (01/18/2009)
I have very long curly dry hair. I blend up a banana and avocado with a little olive oil. The key I think to getting it out is don't mash it puree it in a blender. (07/17/2009)
