bananas Tame Frizzy Hair

Take control of dry strands with this nourishing hair calmer.

What You Need
1 banana
1/2 avocado

1. Mash banana and avocado together, then comb the mixture through dry hair, which absorbs more nutrients than wet.

2. Cover hair with a plastic cap (the heat it creates increases penetration) and leave on hair for 10 minutes; rinse clean with cool water.

Beauty Benefit
"Bananas are full of potassium, and avocados are packed with moisturizing fatty acids -- two things that soften hair instantly," says Alex Safar of Salon Acote in Boston, who advises using this treatment every other week.
