Simple ways to stretch your coils and get your length back.
Coconut milk treatment
When the topic of curl loosening or softening is brought up, the coconut milk treatment is almost always mentioned because of its effectiveness. This treatment can be done using ingredients probably already in your pantry and it really softens the hair. I have tried this treatment many times. and each and every time I’m left with really soft hair. So if you are interested in doing this treatment then you will need:
- A can of coconut milk
- 2 tbsp of honey
- 2 tbsp of coconut oil or any other oil of your choice
- 4 tbsp plain organic yoghurt
- The juice of one lime
- Cornstarch to thicken
Mix all of the ingredients except for the cornstarch in a bowl thoroughly. Then slowly add cornstarch a half teaspoon at a time until the mixture thickens to your liking to avoid application from being a runny mess. Then apply to freshly washed hair in sections. Leave it in for 30 minutes then use a sulfate free shampoo and conditioner to rinse it out and style your hair like you usually do.
So just remember that when your hair shrinks up and decides to fight back the answer is merely a hair band away or tucked away in your pantry.
