Here is a NaturallyCurly.com article on avocado for the hair.
Another great ingredient I keep stumbling upon when researching homemade deep treatments is coconut milk. Apparently coconut milk, unlike coconut oil, is high in proteins and can lead to stronger hair that is easier to detangle. I could always use hair that is more easily detangled. When using coconut milk for the hair, a diet is shunned. Go for the full fat content, not lite, brand for optimum results. Coconut milk also adds moisture to the hair. Coconut milk is popular in ayurvedic medicine and has been purported to lead to hair growth.
Coconut milk can be added to hair directly or added to commercial products. I even read in the NC.com thread on coconut milk how one curly mixed it with her OH Honey Hemp Conditioner. The thread can be found HERE. I plan to use coconut milk on a regular basis now, assuming that my hair responds well to it, but I am sure it will. I very much am looking forward to mixing it with avocado for a deep treatment mask.
Other great coconut milk recipes include:
- Moisturizing Conditioner (protein free) + Coconut Milk
- Avocado + Coconut Milk + Oils
- Coconut Milk + Bentonite OR Rhassoul Clay
- Thick Conditioner (such as Aubrey Organics) + Coconut Milk
