Benefits of Coconut Milk for Kinky Hair

Updated on December 29, 2016

Coconut milk has high protein content, due to it being extracted from the skin of the coconut. Our hair is of protein as well, and hair strands are very much alive, because it's growing from the scalp. Coconut milk absorbs into the hair shaft to give it strength and to stop breakage. Coconut milk can be found in most health food stores or grocery stores in the canned food aisle. Coconut milk also supplies nourishment to the hair shaft during the conditioning regimen. A great way to condition the hair with coconut milk is to add 2-3 ounces on the hair, mix it with one egg yolk, leave it in for 25-60 minutes with a shower cap or plastic bag.

Easy Coconut Milk Conditioner Recipe - mix 2 ounces of coconut milk with 1 whole avocado, 1 tablespoon of pure clover honey, and 1 pinch of cayenne pepper; this is a great DIY homemade conditioner for promoting thicker hair.

      Thanks for this information. Would it work if I applied only coconut milk? Because my hair tends to retain the smell of any foods I put in, and I don't wish to smell like avocado or egg.

      I understand other rinses that help hair are black coffee and tea.

      Hydrolyzed protein treatments also help strengthen hair.
