Before, I go into my review, I Just need to say thank you so much Allie  for sending me your products to review. I started off by co-washing my hair with the Hibiscus Peppermint Leave-In, the description  states that you can use this product as a leave-in ,moisturizer, or as a co-washing product.You can also use on wet,damp or dry hair. The smell is a light peppermint smell.It gives good slip and my scalp had a nice tingling feeling.Next, I applied a dime size to my hair for a leave-in conditioner.My hair felt so hydrated and soft.It also worked  well as a detangler. I decided to use the amla butter as a styler for my chunky flat twist-out. .I sectioned my hair in 4parts using just a little butter to each section,evenly distributing and then a little on my ends.I then flat twist my hair up in a chunky flat twist-out style.My hair was soft,moisturized and well defined.I was very happy with the results!

DIY hair repair: banana yogurt hair mask

DIY hair repair: banana yogurt hair mask

You Need:
1 banana
1cup plain Greek yogurt
¼ cup olive oil

The first thing you need to do is peel the banana puree it up until it is smooth and then combine the rest of the ingredients using an electric mixer or blender.( I messed up and mixed all ingredients up first and ended up with a banana stuck in my hair).So please make sure you puree the banana up first and then add other ingredients.:)

To use:

I applied the mask to dry hair from root to ends and then wrapped my hair in a plastic cap.Wear the mask on your hair for 30 minutes ,and then rinsed out the mask....Follow-up with a shampoo and conditioner.

Greek Yogurt is good for hair that is feeling a little brittle or dry and it adds protein.

Olive Oil nourishes, conditions and improves strength and elasticity in your hair.

Banana contains potassium, which strengthens and fixes damaged hair.

Have you done a hair mask lately, share some of your DIY favorite recipes?
