Scalp Revitalizing Rose Coconut Hair Milk

A lot of us ladies spend a great deal of time putting on creams, scrubs, lotions, and hair products to take care of our skin and hair.  But for as much time as we spend on our skin everywhere else the scalp, I’ve found, gets neglected an awful lot of time.

Taking care of the scalp not only does wonders for keeping our hair growing and looking nice but taking care of the scalp feels really, really amazing and revitalizing overall.  If you’re ever gotten a scalp massage at the hairdresser, you’ll definitely know what I’m talking!

But since most of us don’t have the time or the funds to get someone else to rub down our scalp on a regular basis, this scalp renewing hair milk recipe is a cheap and easy alternative.  I highly recommend applying it, throwing on a good Friends rerun, and kicking back while the soothing tingling works its magic on your head.

Scalp Revitalizing Rose Coconut Hair Milk

Ingredients:

THMO Skin Care Routine

Steps:

  1. Combine the coconut milk, aloe vera gel, rose water, and essential oils into a small mixing bowl. Stir with whisk until everything is combined.
  2. To make it less drippy on your head, you can add 1/4 teaspoon guar gum to the mixture and it’ll turn it into a sort of gel. I find it easier to work with that way. Alternatively, you can thicken it by adding some potato/tapioca starch if you have that on hand but I didn’t like the results quite as much.
  3. Decant into an applicator bottle (I buy a plastic condiments bottle for cheap) and then spread all over scalp and hair. I suggest placing a towel over your shoulders or standing in the shower so that it’s not all over the place.
  4. Leave on your head for 45 minutes and then do whatever you normally do for washing you hair.

I liked washing it out with my favorite shampoo bar and following it up with an apple cider vinegar rinse. For more info on transitioning to a natural hair care routine, check out this post I wrote.

XOXO,

  1. How many “treatments” would this last (approx)? Will the coconut milk cause it to kind of go bad if not used soon enough/ how long would the mix be good for, and would there be a proper way to store leftovers 🙂

  2. Do you have the recipes posted for the hair treatments you showed on periscope? The one when you did the hair test to determine if hair needs protein vs. moisture. Or are you on katch.me? I couldn’t seem to find you there. Thanks!

    • I have a bunch of different ones in the DIY hair section for both protein and moisture treatments 🙂 Katch unfortunately doesn’t work for me because it won’t let me link my periscope and Twitter accounts…but you can get access to all of them by signing up for my email list!
