Your search for a mask for shiny hair ends here! This nourishing hair mask contains just 2 ingredients from your kitchen rack which makes it super affordable. We vouch for this one because it can transform your dead tresses into shimmering locks. The first ingredient you need for this mask is green moong dal which is a staple in Indian households. It is rich in nutrients and protein that can also nourish your hair when applied topically. Another superb ingredient is banana. If you have an overripe banana sitting in the fruit basket and crying over its useless fate, it’ll be a perfect pick for this hair mask.
But before we jump on how to make this immensely hydrating hair mask, we need to speak to an expert who agrees with us on its effectiveness.
Health Shots spoke to Dr Shelly Dhallam, beauty expert at Face Craft Salon and Spa, who rolled out several benefits of using this homemade mask for shiny hair.
Dr Dhallam says, “Green moong and ripe banana hair mask is one hair mask that I strongly suggest to all the women. It hydrates and softens the hair strands due to its nourishing qualities. Moong is rich in proteins that are the building blocks of hair. Banana, on the other hand, is an elixir for hair health.”
“A combination of the two in the form of a hair mask is a powerhouse of goodness and a superfood that your hair and scalp will thank you for,” says Dr Dhallam, who is also a celebrity makeup artist.
This hair mask is perfect for individuals of any age and can be used by men too. According to Dr Dhallam, this mask is also perfect for brides-to-be. One should start using this mask a month prior to their big day to have bouncy and silky hair right in time!
