Kendall Jenner’s DIY hair mask
1 ripe avocado
1 ripe banana
2 tablespoons extra virgin coconut oil
- Scoop out the avocado pulp and mash it into a bowl

- Stir in coconut oil and mix till you get a thick paste
- Apply this paste to dry hair
- Rinse with warm (not hot) water after 30 minutes; wash hair with a mild shampoo if needed
Why does this DIY hair mask work?
Avocados are super-loaded with fatty acids and vitamins, including vitamins B and E, which literally rebuild the hair structure, leaving it stronger, smoother and healthier.
Bananas are high in potassium, vitamins and natural oils that soften the hair, add shine and help prevent split ends and breakage.
As for coconut oil, we already know it’s a miracle-worker, tackling everything from frizz and breakage to dandruff and environmental damage.
Given the amount of minerals, proteins and healthy fats in this natural hair mask, it’s the thing to negate the effects of heat styling and residue-building products. Use regularly and it will actually boost hair growth, besides giving you model-worthy gloss!
