When your hair is deprived of the right care and nourishment, it tend to turn into dry frizzy hair. Dry and brittle hair causes extreme split ends, and when that happens all you could think of is trim your precious hair. For those who love to grow their tresses long, try this really simple DIY Nourishing hair mask before you finally decide to chop your hair.
I like to experiment with natural ways because you know they are safe. In case even if they don’t give you the desired result at least they don’t harm. Lately, my hair has turned way too fizzy and me being so obsessed with my hair I can never think of going for second round of hair hair. So, I decided to try this nourishing banana hair mask to tame my dry frizzy hair. All you need to make this hair mask is 1 ripe banana and 1 tbsp honey. The wonderful properties of honey is believed to help regulate and retain moisture in hair thereby help it grow stronger. Banana helps the hair regain its elasticity and add shine. So what are you guys waiting for? Go grab a bowl mix both the ingredients and get going. 🙂
- 1 Ripe Banana
- 1 TBSP Honey
- Fork or blender
Method: In a bowl mash the banana with the help of a fork or simply blend it in a blender. Once the banana is well mixed, add the honey and give it a good mix.
How to Apply: Shampoo your hair as usual (you can skip the conditioner) and towel dry it. When your hair’s still damp, section your hair and start applying from the ends. After you have applied the mask evenly on your hair, wear a shower cap and leave it on for 30 minutes. Finally rinse your hair with cold water. 🙂
Note: I used the fork to mash the banana, but I suggest you use a blender to get the best texture. If you don’t have a blender, you can still go about using the fork provided you mix it thoroughly. I say that because my mixture turned out a bit lumpy and turned out that there were still some mixture of the hair mask left behind even after the rinse.
You can try this ultra nourishing egg hair mask as well HERE.
I hope you’ll try this simple natural tips and see the result yourself. Do let me know if you happen to try out this hair mask, I’d be glad to hear from you all. 🙂

If you are a big fan of lipsticks then Mac Retro Matte Lipstick collection is definitely something you should have in your collection or at least go and check out. I totally agree that it’s not so pocket friendly but, believe me, it’s totally worth it. Also, apparently M.A.C Cosmetics has finally launched it’s new Little M.A.C collection with few of their matte and retro matte collection in much reasonable price that matches its mini size. I hope it comes to India soon, in that case we don’t have to whine about the high price and for not being able to grab and try one. 😀
I love Mac Retro Matte Lipsticks,but due to its price even I do think twice before going to the store to buy one. Well, most of my Mac lipsticks came to me as gifts, thanks to all the amazing friends I have around. They know exactly what to gift me on special occasions, a gift that will bring a huge dumb smile on my face.And, I in fact I actually went super crazy when my dear friend, Kou, gifted me a gift card from M.A.C Cosmetics on this friendship’s day. The next day, even before I hit the store, I knew exactly what I was going to buy. Of course, Lipstick and in the shade Relentlessly Red. (I am never this specific even when I go to a restaurant) 🙂
Mac Retro Matte Lipstick: Relentlessly Red Review
Mac Relentlessly Red is a bright pinkish coral matte. At first glance it looks a lot like All Fired Up, but it’s much brighter and fresh. This shade has a hint of all my favourite colour; pink, red and coral. If you are someone who loves coral shades then this is definitely the perfect coral red you should try. The red tone of this shade is not too loud, so even a person who has never dared to try a red lipstick can absolutely rock this shade. I was surprised to see that unlike most of their Retro Matte lipsticks, this lipstick shade glided effortlessly smooth and didn’t dry out the lips like most retro matte lipsticks.
Price : Rs 1,450
My Experience with Mac Retro Matte Lipstick: Relentlessly Red
I completely fell in love with the shade even while I was trying the lipstick at the Mac cosmetic store. You can call it love at first swatch/ sight. It didn’t take me long to decide on buying the shade, all I had to do was pout and turn around with the lipstick on,take a nod of approval from my sister, Pema and head straight to the billing counter. 🙂 The shade is fresh and I usually love it as a day wear. It lifts up my face and matches hour. Like most retro matte lipstick, this shade too last up to 6-7 hours straight. Has very rich pigmentation and great color pay off.
For Those Who Feels The Shade looks like the shade All Fired Up: At first, even I was bit reluctant to buy this shade, because I already have All Fired Up and I didn’t want to end up buying a similar shade. So, I carefully looked over the display counter again of the M.A.C store, picked both the shades out to try it out on my wrist and lips.Well, even though at first glance both the lipsticks look like the same shade, but on lips they look entirely different!
You guys already know my huge obsession with lipsticks, especially matte once. If you see me everyday then,I am sure, you must have noticed that there is not a single day where I step out without coating my lips with a good layer of lipstick. Therefore there are also times when I feel my lips are extremely dry and begging for moisture. And so, today I decided to make a special homemade natural lipbalm for myself.
