This is what happens when you run out of hair conditioner! I spent this afternoon looking up DIY homemade hair care and landed on this recipe for a Banana Hair Mask that looked good enough to eat. I threw in some grounded rolled oats for my scalp.

Oats and Banana Milkshake Hair Mask
via the black hair media forum

1 banana or more
3 tablespoons of milk
5 tablespoons of olive oil
1 egg
1/4 cup of grounded oats

Fair bit of warning: The best way to go about this is to mash the banana(s) first and then blend it with the rest of the ingredients until it’s been liquidized. Otherwise, you will end up like these poor saps on the comment section of the Dr. Oz fan page. The oats have to be finely grounded as well – trust me on this, you do not want to be picking out little bits and pieces of wet oats in your hair. It’s nightmarish.

Obviously, despite its appearance, the mixture isn’t meant for drinking.
