I had no idea that coconut milk had so many health benefits until I started working on this blog. I'll focus on hair...
You can use coconut milk as a conditioner or to make a moisturising shampoo.
What is in coconut?
It's packed with vitamins C, E, B1, B3, B5, and B6 as well as iron, calcium selenium, sodium, magnesium, manganese and phosphorus. It's also a good source of proteins and natural oils.
How does coconut milk help hair? It:
If you are making a shampoo coconut oil gives it a moisturising quality so that the shampoo doesn't strip your hair.
If you are making a conditioner then it fortifies hair fibres with proteins, iron and oils. Using heat by wearing a shower cap to trap body heat or blow drying over the surface of your shower cap helps with the absorption of nutrients.
