Friday’s Formula/Tasty Tresses: Cantaloupe (ongoing contest)

I don’t know if you all are enjoying this series but I’m having a ball! It’s so amusing to see all the creative hair recipes for edible items. I’m sure that many may look at these posts from time to and think that I’ve totally lost it, lol. Just trying to get you to “think outside the box”. Get involved and try to figure out what I’m going to cover next week. Let’s take a look at cantaloupe this week.

What’s on the menu for your mane #6 – Cantaloupe

CANTALOUPE: Our hair thrives when we give it what it needs. Vitamin A is an antioxidant that aids in producing healthy sebum in the scalp which keeps the hair and scalp moisturized. Without a sufficient amount of vitamin A the hair becomes dry. Vitamin C maintains the capillaries that circulate blood. Amongst other nutrients, cantaloupe is rich in these two vitamins.

Here are the cantaloupe hair recipes I found:

Fruit Salad Deep Conditioner Recipe
1/2 a banana
1/4 avocado
1/4 cantaloupe
1 tablespoon wheat germ oil
1 tablespoon yogurt
Blend all ingredients. Apply to hair. For extra conditioning, squeeze in the contents of a vitamin E capsule. Leave in hair for 15 minutes. Then rinse.

Natural Hair Conditioner Recipe
2 oz. purified water
1/2 banana
1 tbsp. plain yogurt
1 tsp. honey
1/4 cantaloupe
1 tbsp. sweetened condensed milk
1 tsp. wheat germ oil
In blender combine all ingredients and pulse on medium 10 to 20 seconds. Using fingers, apply mixture to hair in downward motion, smoothing as you go. Leave on at least 45 minutes. Rinse with warm water, and shampoo. You can skip your regular conditioner, but do a final rinse with cold water to seal each strand.
