How do you use coconut milk in your hair??
1. Coconut milk soaks. This involves no other ingredient other than
coconut milk coming into contact with your hair. You douse your hair
in coconut using the whole can and leave on your hair for about an
hour. I have not done this because most people comment that it is so
drippy while your are waiting that hour..but they do say it makes
their hair feel nice!
2. Coconut milk+Conditioner mixtures. I do this very frequently,
about every other week to ensure that I do not have hair protein
overload. I mix coconut milk with my moisturizing deep conditioners
(not protein conditioners because coconut milk is a protein
remember!!). The conditioners that I have had great success with
coconut milk are Lustrasilk Sheabutter Cholesterol (in the bottle)
and Proclaim Aloe&Shea all of which you can find at your Sally's
beauty supply. I mix coconut milk with these conditioners and add
other natural ingredients including coconut oil, aloe vera gel, and
castor oil. You can change your recipes based on what your hair
wants. The general recipe for the coconut milk+conditioner mixture is
1/4 cup coconut milk
2 tablespoons honey
1/4 cup conditioner
Mix all of these ingredients and let sit on your hair for about an
hour and rinse out! Strong fluffy hair for the rest of the week!
