Feed your Hair:Coconut Milk
Coconut Milk is a thick creamy and fatty substance extracted from coconuts. It is high in proteins, vitamins A and E and many other vitamins which help to strengthen the hair and minimize the amount of breakage you may have had. Coconut milk is great for hydrating, moisturizing, repairing and healing hair and the skin.
Unlike Coconut oil, Coconut milk is rich in proteins and is great for protecting the hair against harmful UV rays and prevents frizz. Although Coconut milk is sufficient to put directly onto the hair, try mixing with your favorite conditioner or reconstructor for a boost of much needed vitamins,luster and moisture. Remember, coconut milk is rich in proteins so it's not necessary to mix with a protein enriched conditioner.
Here's one of Kiianah's favorite coconut milk hair recipes:
1/4 cup coconut milk
1/4 cup your fav(non-protein conditioner)
2tbs aloe vera juice
1tbs each jojoba oil, almond oil,hemp oil, grapeseed oil
1/4 cup vegetable glycerin (recommended only during summer months and in warmer climates)
Mix ingredients thoroughly, apply to hair and allow to sit for at at least one hour under a plastic conditioning cap. Rinse and continue with your normal styling routine.
Kiianah 's favorite brand to use is the Thai Kitchen Brand pictured above. She recommends the Goya brand coconut milk as well.
