How to Make Mango Hair Moisturizer

A do-it-yourself mango-based mask lends frizzy, brittle or dull hair heightened shine and manageability at a fraction of cost of store-bought options. The vitamin C and E in the fruit promote hair growth and strength, and its natural fat content bolsters essential moisture. Whip up a safe and all-natural tropical hair moisturizer with a process as easy as making a fruit puree.

Things You'll Need
  • Mango
  • Banana
  • Kitchen knife
  • Cutting board
  • Blender
  • Plain yogurt
  • Towel
  • Shower cap (optional)
  • Gentle shampoo
Wash and peel a fresh, medium-sized mango and one banana, which moisturizes with potassium and natural oils. Slice the fruits into manageable chunks using a sharp kitchen knife and a cutting board. Add the cubed, diced or sliced fruit to a blender.

Add a few spoonfuls of plain yogurt, which acts as a thickening agent and conditions the hair to its roots. Blend the mixture on high until it takes on a smooth, pasty consistency.

Wet your hair, then pat it dry with a clean towel until it's somewhat damp. Massage the mango mask into your scalp, spreading the mixture from your roots to the ends of your hair for optimal coverage.

Wrap your head with a towel or cover it with a shower cap and leave the mask on for about 30 minutes. Remove the wrap or cap and thoroughly wash your hair with a gentle shampoo, then allow it to air-dry.
