coconut milk for loosening curl/relaxing

taltaltaltal Posts: 614Registered Users
Has anyone tried using coconut milk for naturally relaxing / loosening her curl without chemicals ?

I read about coconut milk being used for this purpose.
Does anyone know how to use it ? Has anyone used it ?
Would be glad to read some tips.

I have 4a and would like to loosen my curls a bit, not make my hair straight.

Thanks

    Try the Cherry Lola Treatment. It's on youtube. This seemed to loosen my hair up a bit especially before flat ironing.It made it more loose to begin with.

    ive used a recipe i found on a website with coconut cream extract yogurt and coconut oil

    it was amazing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! my hair got so much softer it didn't get rid of the curls but made them so much softer and loosened them up a little bit i have about 3c textured hair but with some3a and some 3b sized curls and waves that when i blow dried my hair and flat ironed it it was so much easier i used a blow dryer with a comb attachment and it went right through the hair usually i have to tug it through to straighten it

    did you try flat ironing it after trying the 'relaxer'?

    does it also fight humidity?
