Coconut Milk And Aloe Vera For Smooth Hair

Written By:

All of us have faced having to deal with rough hair at some or the other point of time, and it never seems to really go away on its own, does it?

Rough hair tends to be more prone to breakage as well because it lacks moisture. Rough hair also tends to look dull and lifeless.

We don't want our hair to look dead and rough, so we keep trying on new products to make it look shinier and healthier. However, you can't make your hair look healthier, if it is actually not healthy at all.

And the last thing you want to do for unhealthy hair is to layer it with even more chemicals. But, sometimes, because we have so many products lying around, that's exactly what we do.

One thing you must remember when you have rough hair is that to save it from further damage, you must avoid the usage of all the heat-styling tools, as these could further damage the hair strands and make them rougher.

Method & Application:

Scoop out the gel from a few aloe leaves and put the gel in a bowl. Mix it well, so that it's smooth and not lumpy. Add in the coconut milk to this mix.

And then add a few spoons of coconut oil to the mix for that added moisture.

Apply this evenly all over your hair and scalp. Wear a shower cap to cover your hair, so that the mix doesn't drip and create a mess all over your house.

Leave the mask on for about half an hour to one hour, and then wash and condition like you usually would.

This is a pre-shampoo treatment for rough hair. Once you wash it off, you'll see softer, more nourished hair.

Aloe vera is great for hair because it is rich in amino acids and proteins. It provides moisture to the hair without weighing it down, as oils would. The texture of the gel ensures that the moisture reaches deep into the scalp.

Coconut milk, on the other hand, is rich in vitamins and minerals, and the oil derived from coconut can be used for treating hair problems. Coconut oil acts as a natural conditioner.

Regular usage of this mask will make your hair turn a lot more smoother and shinier. This is a perfect remedy that you can try. So, try it today and let us know if it helped you!
