Yup, you can actually use coconut cream or milk, cream just being the higher concentrate of the two. What I love about it also is that the coconut milk/cream you buy in a can naturally separates from the heavier water and rises to the top, becoming a thick sort of paste you can apply to your hair instead of a liquid. I bought mine in a regular sized soup can for about $4 bucks (CAD) in the first grocery store I went to. If your hair is dry, then contrary to what I said in my earlier post, I would recommend using some oil. When my hair is dry it is very 'fluffy' as it mostly affects the ends that seem to bounce up, while the oil seems to work at moisturizing and keeping those ends down and grouped with the rest of my hair. I tried really hard to find an old picture showing my 3A, frizzy damaged hair to show you the difference in the hair, but I couldn't find one on this computer.
