DIY: Homemade Coconut Milk Deep Conditioner

Coconuts are extremely useful as food items and more.

The juice inside of coconuts is sweet and palatable, plus it is full of electrolytes. However, the actual milk many people have come to enjoy from coconuts comes from the seed’s inner pulp. This pulp is grated or ground and processed through pressing, boiling or both to extract nutrients. The result is coconut milk – a special concoction with a variety of uses.

Although coconut milk is widely utilized in foods, it can also serve one’s skin and hair quite well. Common concerns such as dandruff and itchiness are drastically improved through the use of coconut milk.
