Randy Tries Dr. Oz’s Banana Conditioner

Dr. Oz commissioned his researchers to find the best treatment for damaged hair and surprisingly, they ended up with bananas!

At Real Food For Life  we wondered if there was something to it?

I confess being a novice in this area. My own experience has been focused on what goes inside the body from the mouth, not the skin or scalp or dead hair.

I do know that personal care product companies spend a lot of money finding out what exactly you can put on the outside of your body that helps. They also process ingredients so they are absorbed properly.
I’m sure though that they spend even more money marketing their various ‘natural’ ingredients.
Is it all worth it?

Some people who tried the shampoo complained it was hard to wash the bananas out afterward.
This scared Diana since she has such long hair.  It was therefor up to me to be the  guinea pig! 

Here is how it worked …


2 or 3 ripe bananas
(could it get any simpler than this)

The less ripe one smelled so good when I peeled it that I decided to eat it instead.  Good thing I have short hair.


1. Puree the banana completely.  This is important.

2.  With your hands  massage the banana puree into your hair.
This is me with the banana in my hair.  It sure smelled good.

  1. I’m putting this on my husband’s head right away. Thank you in advance. I’d better put some on me too now that I think of it.

  2. Thanks Jean and Caroline!

    Linda one small hint if you want good results.
    Both the banana I used and the banana I ate were ORGANIC.
    Also I’m naturally healthy and handsome to begin with, so as you can see, the change was very small and subtle!

  3. Looks great – sure made your hair grow. Maybe I will try it when I have some left over bananas.

  4. Love it. Like the fun down to earth” before” picture guy not the photo shop “after” guy. After guy would spend too much time with his bananas!!

    1. Dear Prasart – Yes this information is serious – except for the last photo. I really didn’t notice a big difference in my hair – good or bad – but I don’t have a lot of attention on it.

    1. Thanks Sarah for the suggestion. Many cultures have used coconut oil on the skin for its healthy effects. Did you warm up the oil a bit to help it mix and spread well?

    Randy, what exactly did Dr. Oz say that this banana puree was supposed to accomplish by putting it in your hair?
