    Coconut Milk is the liquid that comes from the grated meat of a coconut. It can only be produced from a brown coconut. The colour and rich taste of the milk can be attributed to the high oil content. And it can also be used as a shampoo.



    1/4 cup coconut milk (Like I said, you can either make your own, or use store-bought)

    1/3 cup liquid castile soap (like Dr. Bronner’s)

    1 tsp vitamin E, olive or almond oil

    10 to 20 drops your choice of essential oils (I used lavender. Next time I think I’ll do something citrusy just for fun.)

    Combine all ingredients in a shampoo bottle or jar and shake well to mix. (I bought the squeeze bottles above at the dollar store.) You can keep it in the shower for up to one month…just shake before use.

    Use about a teaspoon every time you shampoo. (I used a little more, but my hair is pretty long right now!)

    I loved pretty much everything about this shampoo. It smelled good…it lathered up nicely (which I feel strongly about)…and after washing, rinsing and drying…my hair felt soft and smooth. No fly-aways.
