What are the Benefits of Coconut Milk for Hair
I had no  idea that coconut milk had so many health benefits until I started working on this blog. I'll focus on hair...You can use coconut milk as a conditioner or to make a moisturising shampoo.
What is in coconut?

It's packed with vitamins C, E, B1, B3, B5, and B6 as well as iron, calcium selenium, sodium, magnesium, manganese and phosphorus. It's also a good source of proteins and natural oils.

How does coconut milk help hair? It:
1.     Helps to protect hair from the loss of protein.
2.     Boosts hair's body/volume and shine by replenishing hair fibres with oil.
3.     Helps to repair damaged hair
4.     Helps to detangle hair.
5.     Helps to soften hair.
6.     Treats a dry flaky scalp.
7.     Helps to treat hair loss - not scientifically proven but some claim tis so!
8.     By protecting hair and the scalp, it helps hair grow.

If you are making a shampoo coconut oil gives it a moisturising quality so that the shampoo doesn't strip your hair.

If you are making a conditioner then it fortifies hair fibres with proteins, iron and oils. Using heat by wearing a shower cap to trap body heat or blow drying over the surface of your shower cap helps with the absorption of nutrients.
