Homemade Coconut Milk & Aloe Vera Hair Mask for deep conditioning 

I have naturally wavy/curly hair with a lot of frizz. So, naturally, I was obsessed with getting my hair silky & straight. In my quest to get silky straight hair, I’ve chemically treated my hair 3 times. At that time, my hair was really strong and thick. But after Relaxing my hair for the 3rd time, I noticed that my hair is becoming a little thin! Not drastically thin because I used to take care of my hair a lot. I used to buy the shampoos recommended by my hair stylist, I used to go for regular spas and all. But, no matter how much precaution we take, chemically treating our hair is never a good idea. So, it’s been two & a half years now since I’ve done any chemical treatment on them. I’m growing out my curls now and trying to manage them at any cost. I’m always on my quest to find the perfect products for them. But, more than finding good products for my hair type, I’m more interested in experimenting with my homemade recipes because in terms of results, nothing works for me like my homemade hair masks with ingredients from my kitchen cabinet (almost, always). The Diy hair mask I’m talking about today is my Homemade Coconut Milk & Aloe Vera Hair Mask for deep conditioning dry & frizzy hair!

Benefits of using Homemade Coconut Milk & Aloe Vera Hair Mask:

Coconut Milk 

Coconut milk is really rich in proteins that strengthens and replenishes the hair very well. Coconut milk contains Lauric acid, a medium fatty acid, which gives coconut milk its anti-viral, anti-fungal & anti-bacterial properties. Because of these antibacterial properties of Coconut milk it helps in taking care of dandruff, itchy or flaky scalp along with a number of skin issues as well. Coconut milk also contains vitamins C, E, B, B3, B5 & B6. It softens and nourishes curly hair very well! Coconut milk is a great organic conditioner for our hair that restores dry, damaged & brittle hair. You can use any market bought organic, unsweetened coconut milk or you can make one yourself. I’ve explained how to make DIY Coconut milk at home further in this post. Scroll down to read it.

Aloe Vera Gel

Aloe Vera gel is the ultimate moisturiser for your skin as well as hair. It isn’t a medicine but it cures so many problems, you’ll be baffled by it! It contains fatty acids, vitamins A, B C, & protein, which are all amazingly nourishing ingredients for your hair. You can get Aloe Vera gel in the market as well but I prefer making my own Aloe Vera gel at home. But, If you don’t have an Aloe plant, you can use a market packed Aloe gel. Make sure it’s organic and NOT GREEN!

Coconut Oil

Coconut oil, according to me, is the king of all oils. It never disappoints in making my hair healthy and smooth due to the presence of Vitamin K & E. Coconut oil also contains Caprylic acid which is a really good fatty acid that has amazing anti-bacterial, anti-viral & anti-fungal properties. In addition to all of this, my personal experience with Coconut oil has been splendid!

Vitamin E Oil

Vitamin E oil has crazy mosturising properties. It helps in hair growth and prevents hair loss. It promotes new hair cell to grow. Vitamin E oil also encourages circulation to the scalp and promotes hair growth. It adds shine to dull lifeless hair! You can use Vitamin E capsules as well. Just prick the capsules with a pin and squeeze out all the oil.

  1. I also have really curly frizzy hair and I’m hesitant about using a mask full of chemicals. Thanks for sharing this, I will definitely give it a try! I have most of these ingredients already, woo!

    1. Well, that’s the beauty of DIY beauty recipes. You almost always have everything in your home! Definitely, try it and let me know your feedback!

    1. By using the exact same ingredient quantities I’ve mentioned, you’ll make enough hair mask for 2 usage. It’s supposed to be used fresh but it can be kept in the fridge for up to 24 hour. If you have a sister you can share the remaining mask with her. I shared it with my mom! Or you can divide my quantities by half and use it in a single application.

  2. Woah! I’m really loving the template/theme of this site. It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s hard to get that “perfect balance” between user friendliness and visual appeal. I must say you have done a amazing job with this. Additionally, the blog loads super quick for me on Internet explorer. Outstanding Blog!
