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. 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
