Okay, some of you are probably sick and tired of me ranting and raving about…pretty much all things coconut lol
But please just grin and bare it – my intentions are in your hair’s good interest :)
SO, last week I really really wanted to go swimming, and actually had lots of fun in the water….
my hair, on the other hand, looked shot to hell.
I honestly was kind of surprised at how bad the chlorine jacked me up. I did attempt to take some preventative measure by drenching my hair in conditioner before the swim. But this clearly wasn’t enough. lol
I’m far from anti-water (unless I’ve just straightened, which is rare), so I refused to go with a cap on – besides, they come off anyways. Maybe it’s because I was so used to the great moisture and softness I’ve been getting with my extra virgin coconut oil, but when I got out of the pool I was immediately displeased to say the least :O(
All I can say is thank goodness I had an unopened can of coconut milk sitting in my cabinet!
I hadn’t ever tried the milk before (just coconut oil), but my tangled-up lifeless mat of a head gave me some motivation to reach out and try something new! lol
I mixed one can of coconut milk (I get mine for 99 cents at the Indian grocer/shop near me), with one of my fav conditioners – Herbal Essence Hello Hydration- and put on a plastic shower cap for about 15 minutes.
When I stepped out of the shower from rinsing, it was kinda like that Robin Thicke song “Magic” lol
Seriously, I will now be using coconut milk for deep conditioning treatments every week (or on an as needed basis).
I really do love coconuts.
