Coconut Milk & Honey for Hair loss


I just started trying coconut milk on my hair, not only for it’s known hair growing abilities but also to prevent hair loss. Recently my hair has been falling out when I comb (gulp), so I decided to try and add some coconut potion on it. Coconut is known for promoting hair growth because It’s rich in protein, and essential fats. These elements are valuable in growth and maintenance of healthy hair, and also preventing hair loss. When applied  to the hair, coconut milk provides quick results. I read many articles on how your hair responds to the coconut milk and hair gets noticeably softer and hair loss diminishes.

So I decided to give it a try, I brought a can of coconut milk and added some honey for moisture since these winter days in New York have made my hair rather dry.


I then whisked the ingredients together and poured the mixture into an empty hand soap container for an easier distribution of the treatment.


   When you apply it to the hair, make sure to massage your scalp for at least 2 minutes, this will stimulate blood flow to the scalp and help nourish it. Leave it in for an hour, if your in a rush leave it on for no less than 30 min.

Finally shampoo and final rise with cold water.

*Your hair will feel greasy at first, but after you let your hair dry it will look  shiny, hydrated, and soft.

Do this once a month or once a week for people with really dry hair, and you will reap the rewards.


*The last picture was taken recently and I have “ombre” tips. My hair was brittle in the first pic, falling out a lot, and very dry.

  1. Hello I’ve use this on my hair and it did stop my hair loss by reducing shedding almost instantly. I also did a black tea rinse first then the coconut mix. I find it to be quite messy and runny. I’m seeing more shedding again so I plan to do a second treatment. I want to know what you think about coconut cream instead of the loose milk. I will also share my results with you. Thank you.

    1. I don’t use coconut cream since it has a lot of added sugar and ingredients that your scalp doesn’t need. The coconut milk, although runny, is more effective in my opinion. Let me know how works out on your hair :)

      1. Omg i have tried this and i must say it works for me. I have hand a scalp problem and issues with my hair falling out.for 5yrs. The amount of money i have spent on such expensive treatments to try heal my scalp and help my hair loss was quite depressing. And come across this smiple solution has helped me tremendously for 2 months.

    1. I put it in the fridge if I’m going to use it again within a week. If you plan on using it once a month you can store in the freezer and thaw it out before applying. It keeps well in the freezer, up to 6 months. Or in the fridge for up to a week.

    1. You can use a sulfate free shampoo after the treatment. Don’t shampoo twice and make sure it’s a hydrating chemical free shampoo. The shampoos that have sulfates will strip your hair from all it’s moisture. I recommend Shea moisture shampoo and follow with a conditioner.

      1. do you recommend a specific shampoo and conditioner thats available in uk please i have not long done an aphogee treatment and been left with very very coarse dry hair that is not responding to oil

  2. What is the fastest but best way to thaw it out? In the microwave (which I think would cause a film to form on top.) Or just put the container in luke warm water before using?
    I was thinking of putting it in a separate container, and scoop out what I needed, instead of thawing out the whole container.

    1. Once the honey is mixed with the coconut milk it is no longer sticky. Honey is for moisture. The shampoo’s name brand is SheaMoisture, Coconut & Hibiscus Shine Shampoo. It’s all natural you can get it at target

      1. Hello I’ve done a big chop on my hair since last year. I alternate the tea rinse and your mix. Because my hair is so short now, I’m going to use Parrot brand all natural pure creamed coconut. I will follow up on my results and thanks so much for your reply.

  3. Hi, I can’t find coconut milk in canned form in my country, only coconut cream. Does it work the same way too? What about fresh coconut milk? And my scalp is so oily, but hair fall has always been so serious, this mask is suitable too?
    Thank you for helping me.

    1. It has to be the milk not the cream. Fresh coconut water if helpful but coconut milk contains iron, calcium, magnesium, potassium, protein and vitamins that are great for hair loss.
