Banana Hair Gel

Banana Hair Gel

Well, I’m in my third decade and I still haven’t figured my hair out. It is curly and fine so completely affected by the weather. I fix it, but inevitably 30 minutes later when I catch a gander of myself in the mirror, it never looks the same as when I left the bathroom ready for the day.

I have tried to resolve this problem with various different hair products. Some are too goopy and weigh my hair down or make it look greasy (not good!) Some are too light and don’t hold anything in place. I have resorted to carrying a pony tail holder in my pocket most days for those moments when I catch a gander in the rear-view mirror and think Good Crikey! That’s what I look like! Ugh.

At some point along the way, I surrendered to bad hair defeat. Until yesterday, when my 10 month old gave me some hope.

Think product that smells good. Light in texture, strong in hold. Cheap and always available.

I looked up from my lunch and thought how brilliant she was to have resolved my hair woes after all.

She had delicately rubbed between her tiny fingers a chunk of ripe banana and then proceeded to gently work into the intricate fibers of her hair, starting at the ends and working towards the roots. It maintained a perfect and consistent hold for well over 6 hours.


Simply unbelievable. The answer right under my nose, staring back at me from the breakfast table for years!

Be careful to remove any chunks….maybe not so attractive.

A little side view. Nice, right?

The style options could be endless. Remember, you saw it here first. Banana Hair Gel.
