How Do You Use Coconut Milk for Dry Hair & Hair Growth?
1. Use it as a Hair Mask
Use coconut milk for dry hair and hair that has been seriously damaged! The fatty acid profile of coconut milk has amazing moisturizing effects. This means it can act as a powerful hair mask for both dry hair and damaged strands.
Make your own fancy hair mask right at home with these simple ingredients!
- 1 Can of unsweetened coconut milk
- 2-3 Drops of WOW Rosemary essential oil
Mix the coconut milk in a bowl or in a simple mason jar with the essential oil. Leave it in the fridge overnight so it hardens. The next day, you can start applying the milk onto your hair in sections. Work through one section at a time and be sure to apply it from root to end.
How long should I leave coconut oil in my hair? Leave it on for about 20-30 minutes and rinse right after.
This is really helpful if you have split ends & frequently suffer from frizz. The coconut milk will provide your strands with the nourishment it’s craving while the essential oil helps to improve hair thickness.
2. Use as a Leave-In Conditioner
This DIY Leave-In Conditioner is perfect if you’re looking to just get a quick fix in the middle of the day. This leave-in spray not only hydrates your strands but it adds shine and strength as well.
Here’s a simple recipe you can use:
- A Spray Bottle
- 2 tablespoons of coconut oil
- ½ Cup of unsweetened coconut milk
- 6-7 Drops of WOW Ylang Ylang Essential Oil
Melt the coconut oil & mix it with the essential oil. Pour the oils into the bottle and fill the rest with the coconut milk. Be sure to swirl it around well to combine the oils.
Whenever you’re about to use it, simply take it out of the refrigerator and leave it out for a few minutes until it melts before using it.
Ylang Ylang is perfect for anyone with dry hair as it is usually a lack of sufficient oils and sebums that causes hair to turn brittle. It stimulates the natural production of sebum from the scalp.
An easier way of reaping the benefits of coconut milk is by directly massaging it onto your hair and scalp. A gentle 5-7 minute massage can help nourish the strands and stimulate hair growth.
The coconut milk's high-fat content will help with detangling as well, making your strands far more manageable.
