How To Use Coconut Milk For Soft Curls
Dry, frizzy curls can be seriously annoying. So many curly girls spend their time trying to figure out how to smooth and soothe their errant strands. As a result, they’re loading up their delicate curl with tons of product that might just end up weighing their hair down. Instead of using product, here’s how to use coconut milk for soft curls.
Why use coconut milk?
First of all, there are a lot of benefits to using coconut milk in your curls. For example, another reason to use coconut milk is that it helps add shine to damaged strands. This is because it encourages healthy curl growth and helps prevent hair loss. Finally, it boosts frizzy strands with moisture to help smooth them down.
What you’ll need:
1/2 cup full fat, organic coconut milk
1/4 cup organic, raw honey
What to do:
Place both ingredients together into a bowl or a jar. Mix until completely blended and a smooth consistency.
Section curls into 4-8 even sections and apply the mixture directly to your scalp using a cotton ball or finger tips. Once the scalp is covered, use the rest of the product to cover your strands. Massage the mixture into your scalp and then tie your curls back in a bun.
Cover your hair with a plastic shower cap and wrap a towel around your head. This will allow heat to remain trapped against your scalp to activate the coconut milk.
Allow the mask to sit on your curls for 2-3 hours minimum. If your hair is very damaged, you can leave it on overnight or for a full day. Rinse out with cool water and a mild cleansing shampoo. No need for a conditioner, as the treatment will provide the necessary moisture. This is a great mask to use at least once a week to help revive dry, lifeless curls.
