6 Coconut Milk Hair Masks For 2 Times Thicker Hair

Touch your hair. Does it feel coarse, is the colour changing from deep black to faded brown, is it dry and breaks easily? Your hair is crying for help. And your routine 'oil chumpy' is just not enough. What you need are coconut milk hair masks that can give you two times thicker hair.

Coconut milk is not the same as coconut water. Coconut water is found in the cavity of the coconut, whereas milk is extracted from coconut meat that is soaked in a measured quantity of water.

It differs not just in the consistency, but also in the amount of proteins, antioxidants and minerals it contains. Coconut milk has concentrated essential vitamins than coconut water.

Now, let's understand how coconut milk promotes hair growth. Herbal coconut milk hair mask has a high ratio of niacin and folate, both of which stimulate blood slow, which in turn boosts hair growth.

Not just that, coconut milk happens to be a powerhouse of vitamin E and essential fatty acids, which address pretty-much all hair problems.

It cleanses the scalp of impurities, seals cuticles, repairs damaged hair cells and promotes hair regeneration.
