When I think of coconut milk, I imagine myself walking on the sandy beaches of Hawaii sipping from a coconut. Yes it is a nice refreshing drink, but it actually has many hair care benefits. While most of us aware of coconut oil’s moisturizing and healing properties, we often forget about its milk. It has essential vitamins C, E, B1, B3, B5 and B6, as well as iron, selenium, calcium, magnesium and phosphorus.
