*FRIENDLY WARNING AND MISTAKES I MADE THE FIRST GO AROUND:
1. One banana is plenty. I have thick, coarse hair and one banana worked better. While it was easier to get the banana out of my hair, one banana didn't clump my curls as well as two. But that really done banana didn't clump my curls as well as two. But that really doesn't matter since it’s going to be rinsed out.
2. The more you mash your bananas the better. Large chunks WILL cling to your curls, resulting in multiple rinses. The first time I tried this, I rinsed at least three times and began air drying only to realize I still had a lot of banana in my hair.
3. Be prepared to have a few banana remnants in your hair. Good news is it won’t do much harm if you co-wash regularly.
