    I was really frustrated with my frizzy hair. It used to be smooth and shiny but somewhere along the way after my cancer therapy, it lost its texture and thickness. My hair used to stand on end and fly all over the place. Well, I used this banana and honey mask. The difference is that I used it after oiling my hair and wrapping a warm, moist towel around it for 20 minutes prior to the banana mask. IT has worked wonders for my hair. I can’t quite believe the difference it has made! Yes, there are a few banana flakes in my hair, but hey! Who cares!! Yahoo. Thanks a lot. Strongly recommended.

    BETTY CRUNCH: I just want to know “WHY” can’t you answer at least some of these questions people have asked you?
    I mean “Bluehairfanatic” has asked a reasonable question. And w/o a reply in almost a month.
    Bluehairfanatic, I guess “YOU” are suppose to “do” (experiment) what you’re asking on your own, then come back here and post your experience doing it.

    I think/believe “Crunchy Betty” is more interested in making money from advertisements from people like us visiting this site, than she is answering your question.
    I also believe, she isn’t the least bit worried/interested about helping anyone, but rather just wait for someone to try out your suggestion and post the results.
    If people were more interested in truly helping others, instead of padding their wallets/purses, this world would be a great place.

      (I’m guessing this applies to hair recipes as well. I’d imagine there is an overwhelming amount of questions for her to answer, making it impossible to do so. I have found the forum to be very helpful. Hope to see you there.)

      Contact Crunchy Betty

      I would absolutely love to hear from you; however, Crunchy Betty no longer answers personal inquiries for suggestions or advice on how to take care of your skin. We have a LOVELY community forum where people get together to brainstorm and share ideas on natural health/skincare, and if you have a question, I really, really, really suggest you visit there. Read through a few threads. Ask your own questions. Get to know each other. Party the crunchy way.

      However, if you’d like to send me a love letter (sans a question), an idea for a blog post, or if you’re a natural business that has a proposal, please use the contact form below.

      (Again, please remember, no personal questions soliciting skincare or other advice. Thank you! <3 )

      I’m agree here with S.Michelle, but because I’m not such a nice person as S.Michelle, I’m gonna be blunt.

      YOU OBVIOUSLY DON’T UNDERSTAND HOW HARD IT IS TO KEEP UP WITH A BLOG AS POPULAR AS THIS ONE. OBVIOUSLY, IF YOU HAVE THE SPARE TIME TO TROLL AROUND THE INTERNET AND INSULT PEOPLE WHO AREN’T AS ON-TOP-OF-THINGS AS YOU CLEARLY THINK YOU ARE, YOU DON’T HAVE A BLOG TO KEEP UP WITH. SO TO GAIN SOME PERSPECTIVE (Because perspective helps make the world a better place, right?) YOU MIGHT JUST WANT TO START YOUR OWN BLOG ABOUT HOW AWESOME YOU ARE AND HOW ORGANIZED AND PERFECT YOU ARE AND HOW EVERYONE SHOULD BE JUST LIKE YOU. THEN YOU MIGHT GET IT. IN THE MEANTIME, TAKE YOUR OPINIONS AND HOLIER-THAN-THOU ATTITUDE SOMEWHERE ELSE.

      Also, for someone who’s so concerned about helping others and talks about a better place, you sure do have a way of contributing. I guess if everyone else was as cold-hearted and insulting as you are to people who are giving their best to something they love, that would solve the world’s attitude, work-ethic, and depression problems, wouldn’t it?

      Reality check: YOU ARE NOT BETTER THAN LESLIE. And posting something on her blog about what a terrible person she is does not make you better, and it does not make her worse. It makes you a power-hungry bully in need of attention that you do not deserve. Go back to middle school.

      As for S.Michelle’s post, it was copied and pasted from the Contact Crunchy Betty section of this blog. Look it up for yourself. And stop looking for people to pick on.

      That is all.

    Manohman, i can’t wait to try this recipe! I do have one question, though. I normally rinse my hair with a mix of ACV and honey (2 spoons/1 spoon), which leaves my hair clean and moisturized. If there such a thing as too much moisturizing? Should i skip the rinsing when i use this mask?

    Many thanks:)

    I used this recipe this Summer and OMG!!!! I’m African American with Natural hair and my hair LOOOOOVVVEEDD this!!!! Where’s the Love<3 button for this cause this made my hair sooooooo soft and the scent is awesome. The cocoa powder gives it that extra umph.

    Thank you so much for this! ^_^

    I used this recipe last night:) I added a little too much milk and panicked, thinking it would run down my scalp and into my clothes so I *may* have in my craziness added some random ingredients such as coconut oil and guavas. I love coconut oil so no harm there, guava well I figured it would add even more nutrients and what not to my hair. Fast forward to 30 minutes later when the globs of banana and guava seeds became an ugly tangled (and dry looking) mess in my hair. Needless to say I was very disappointed at this stage. But lo and behold when I was finally done with this (another 15 mins) my hair was a beauty!!!!! I actually wanted to do it again tonight my hair feels silky and looks darker and shinier!! I am soooo impressed by this! Definitely do it! Just don’t add guavas ;)

  13. What to do if I don’t have any (hair)?

  14. Mel Stevens

    wow, loved the “goodies” part =). It is certainly a different mask from most I’ve seen online. Right now I’m using the pro naturals argan oil hair mask and it is extremely good, and it smells fantastic too =D

  15. I made this hair mask with bananas, milk, and honey, but never thought to add the other ingredients! I’ve used it twice and love the results…but next time I will definitely try adding cocoa powder or green tea! Thanks for the awesome suggestions and recipe!

    No, no, no and NO. I stupidly gave this concoction a try because I had some spare time and it sounded quite good. It did smell good and I admit I drank a bit of it, but it was holy hell to get out of my hair! I ended up totally washing and conditioning it with regular stuff out of bottles, but before that, more hair than ever was broken off while I tried to comb out the goo. I was really disappointed and shocked at how bad this was and how impossible it was to get out of my hair. Never, ever, ever EVER again!!!

    I’ve been doing no-poo for almost a year and my hair just gets drier and drier–I’m thinking soon it will all fall out and I’ll have no hair to have to worry about. Any ideas on how to soften it up and still keep it manageable? I use baking soda with water for the poo and ACV for the conditioner. Admittedly, the first few months my hair washed better with ACV and conditioned better with the baking soda and until one week the buildup was crazy and everything flipped, but still it is just getting drier and drier. HELP! SOMEONE!?!?!?
