How To Use Coconut Milk For Hair Growth? February 1, 2017

Coconut milk is a liquid derived from mature coconuts and it’s different than coconut water. It is used in many dishes as an alternative to regular milk. Coconut milk is a high fat content but still it’s very effective during weight loss. It contains vitamins like niacin and folate which increases blood circulation and also prevents cancer in some cases. Besides the health benefits, coconut milk is also good in enhancing beauty. Yes, you heard me right…. It can be beneficial for your skin and hair.

Today I’ll be talking about coconut milk for hair growth. Coconut milk is the answer of every hair problem you are facing. It contains vitamin E and fats which are very beneficial for hair and also promote hair growth. A year ago, I found my hair so dull and damaged. I was so tensed about my hair. Then my mother advised me to use coconut milk twice a week. And now I am in love with my hair. Coconut milk has been known to particularly help people who are facing hair problems.

First, let’s take a quick look at how to extract coconut milk:

  1. Take fresh coconut and grate it with the help of coconut grater.
  2. Take a cheese cloth or muslin and put some grated coconut on it and squeeze out the milk in a bowl.
  3. After squeezing all the milk, filter the milk to avoid the grated particles of the coconut.
  4. Then preheat a pan, and pour the milk into the pan and cook it for 3-5 minutes. After this, allow the milk to cool down and then freeze it for a night.

How to apply coconut milk for hair growth?

  1. First detangle your hair properly.
  2. Then take a cotton ball and dip it into the milk. Cotton is going to ease up the whole application process.
  3. Apply the milk on your scalp, hair and tips. After this, use your fingers to massage your scalp. Scalp massage is good for blood circulation and hair growth.
  4. Then tie up your hairs and cover them with a hair cap. It’s going to naturally heat up your hair and also prevent the milk from leakage.
  5. Leave your hair for 4-5 hours, so that the milk enters the root of the hair.
  6. Wash it with your favourite shampoo.
  7. After shampooing, condition your hair.

Now you can see the awesome results of your hard work. Trust me you will fall in love with your hair. This hair mask will not only help in hair growth but it will also make your hair silky, smooth and shiny.
