Add the honey, glycerine and Olive oil to the blended banana. Mix thoroughly till it forms a smooth paste. Apply to your clean damp hair from the root to the tip, avoiding your scalp. Cover up with a shower cap. Let it stay for an hour. If you are using a steamer, 30 minutes is enough. Rinse out thoroughly with cold water or with cold water mixed with apple cider vinegar.
