Coconut Hair Masks

beauty products coconut milk hair health

Coconut milk is great for keeping hair soft and shiny and it´s especially good for dry hair.

You can easily make your own nutritious coconut milk from dehydrated coconut using the NutraMilk, then you simply add a few ingredients and you have yourself a nourishing hair mask.

You can use just the coconut milk on its own since it´s pure and fresh. You can add your favorite essential oil even though it smells so good on its own or you can add a few more ingredients. Here is one recipe we like:

INGREDIENTS

For hair mask

  • 3 tbsp. fresh coconut milk made with the NutraMilk
  • 1/2 avocado
  • 1 tbsp. honey 

For Coconut Milk (yields 6 cups)

  • 2 cups (160g) of unsweetened dried coconut
  • 1 ½ quarts (6 cups) of water

*you can use more or less water depending on how full-bodied you want the milk to be.
