    I use it as a pre-poo. I blend it with avocado and a little honey put on my head and leave it on for a few then I shampoo my hair.

    I'm considering adding coconut milk to my DT but have no idea what it does lol. Someone please school me :)

    And for now I'm just DT with GVP Conditioning Balm but I'd love to add some natural ingredients for some extra OOMPH. Right now I PT with avocado/banana/evoo/honey mix and then DT with the conditioning balm alone.

    I tried to use coconut milk for hair grow, as my hair is quite slow-growing and I've heard many times that coconut milk helps for hair growth, but when I washed it off I was surprised because it relaxed my curls and left my hair very soft. Now I often use coconut milk for hair and add it to my everyday conditioner. I also use coconut oil, its also good for hair, here are some facts about coconut oil benefits for hair)

    I had a horrible experience using coconut milk as a pre-poo. It made my hair hard and brittle. First I think coconut milk is high in protein. Second it is very alkaline, which is why it is used in natural "relaxers". So if you are protein sensitive or pH sensitive like I am, be careful using it straight out of the can.

    It does have protein. CM makes my hair like straw. It was a horrible hair experience for me.
    Yes, it's real. No, you can't touch it. :wav:
