What is a hair milk?

Hair milks are like lotions for your hair. With a light and creamy texture, hair milks provide daily moisture that your curls need. Hair milks work best after washing or to refresh your second day curls. Because hair milks are light, those with a looser curl pattern could use hair milk as their only styling aid. However, those with tighter curls and coils should incorporate styling serum or butter in addition to their favorite styling milk. Here are 5 hair milks for every curly girl.
