Using a cotton pad, gently rub your face with the mixture to clean dirt and grime. You can also make a hair mask out of buttermilk by blending together banana and a cup of buttermilk. Apply and keep it on for half an hour to make your hair soft. A buttermilk hair mask is best for those with frizzy hair.
