The secret to great-looking, radiant hair during the dry, hot, summer is: moisture and conditioning. You can do this naturally and avoid adding potentially harmful substance to your precious locks. Coconut milk and bananas contain essential vitamins and minerals, as well as antioxidants. Lustrous Henna Shampoo Powder is completely all natural and filled with ancient Ayurvedic botanicals to gently cleanse condition and grow your hair.
The organic properties of coconut milk to promote healthy natural hair care have been known since ancient times. Manganese protects the hair shaft, iron help prevents hair loss and protein promotes natural hair growth. Coconut milk, when used as a hair soak, actually untangles and softens hair and provides needed moisture and protection.
Want to strengthen and add volume to your natural hair, prevent split ends and stop hair breakage? Bananas are full of potassium, vitamins, natural oils and carbohydrates that produce marvelous results for hair care. They can repair dry and sun-damaged hair, hair damage caused by pollution, dirt and exposure to environmental toxins.
Even Dr. Oz and his top scientists found that one of the best home remedies for damaged hair is: mashed bananas pureed until smooth and applied to hair.

Coconut Milk- Banana Hair Mask Recipe
Note: All measurements are approximate; adjust to the length and thickness of your natural hair.
6-14 fl. ounces of fresh or canned coconut milk.
2-4 ripe bananas or 1-3 jars (2.5oz. each) of organic baby food bananas
- Puree the ingredients completely in a blender or food processor until thick and creamy like pudding. If using ripe bananas, make sure they are totally pureed, to avoid getting banana pieces and flakes in your hair. Rinsing out these pieces can be difficult – so make sure it a complete puree. (This is the reason I use the organic baby food.)
- Pour mixture into a cup or bowl and apply to hair. Application can be very messy and dripping, so you might want to apply over a sink or in the shower. Wrap hair in plastic wrap or cap. Use a smooth cloth or towel around hairline to absorb the dripping mask.
- Wait 15-20 minutes (or longer if you want) and rinse out.
- Gently cleanse hair with Lustrous Henna® Shampoo Powder. Made into a paste with a little water and applied to hair. Leave on for approximately 3-5 minutes and wash out.
- Style your hair.
Try this “one-two punch” soon -to wake up your hair and scalp and protect it from sun damage – naturally.
