It is no secret that eating eggs, which are absolutely loaded with protein, has numerous health benefits for your mane.

When it comes to hair, skin, nails and overall health, bananas are the holy grail because they are rich in vital antioxidants, vitamins and other minerals. A banana based hair mask gives your locks some much needed nourishment and moisture, leading to a fresh bouncy feel. All you need is two over ripe bananas, a teaspoon of coconut oil, a teaspoon of olive oil and a table spoon of honey. Mix them all up and apply the smoothie to your scalp and the lengths of your hair. Wash it off thoroughly after five minutes, taking care to remove any residual chunks. Hello, gorgeous!
Put your hands up if Greek yogurt with tropical berries is your go-to evening snack! Switch things up with a cooling yogurt hair mask which is ideal for babes with dandruff and dry hair. Throw half a cup of yogurt, a teaspoon of honey and a teaspoon of apple cider into a bowl. Blend it all up until you have a smooth mixture. Apply this hair mask to your scalp thoroughly and work the remaining down to the ends of your hair. Allow all the nutritional goodness to be soaked up by your scalp for at least fifteen minutes and then wash it out with warm water. Apply the yogurt hair mask twice a week to banish pesky dandruff in no time!
Not only does avocado taste extremely delicious on toast, it has been a popular ingredient in beauty products over the ages. Make your own avocado based hair mask by mixing a small ripe avocado with a table spoon of almond oil and half a cup of milk. Apply the smooth mixture all over your mane, starting from the roots and working it slowly towards the tips. Leave it in for about twenty minutes, after which you should wash it with warm water and your regular shampoo. The hydrating properties in avocado will leave your locks feeling ultra smooth and shiny!
Strawberries are one of the healthiest fruits out there because they are loaded with vitamin C, which rehydrates your hair whilst helping to control the natural oil balance of your scalp. Blend a handful of fresh strawberries with a tablespoon of coconut oil and a tablespoon of honey until it forms a smooth puree. Apply the hair mask to damp hair, taking care to massage it gently into the scalp with your finger tips. Rinse it out after ten minutes with warm water and shampoo as normal. Revel in your glossy hair!
