Making Coconut milk is not new to me, but IÂ haven’tÂ seen it done in such a long time. My mom used to do this when I was growing up, she used the milk to make Rice and Peas every Sunday. Its weird how when we are younger we would take certain things for granted, I remember thinking the process looked so involved and I had better things to do than squeezing some shreds to get a little milk. Now I wish I paid more attention.
Here is Â Chris’s demonstration on how to make coconut milk
Imagine using the milk as a conditioner for your hair, I know it is much easier to just get the can from the supermarket, but you know what they say, everything is always better ‘organic’.
If you want to try using fresh coconut milk as a conditioner just simply massage the milk into your scalp using your fingers to coat the strands thoroughly. Once you areÂ satisfiedÂ that you haveÂ coveredÂ everything just don a plastic bag and let it sit for a couple hours. A great tip is to apply the milk when its a little warm to ensure that the nutrients from the milk move quickly through your hair.
Now if you are into using fresh produce for your skin, here are some ways to incorporate coconut milk:
As a Moisturizer
Mix equal amounts of fresh coconut milk and honey. Add two drops of almond oil to this mixture if your skin is extra dry. Smooth this over your face and let it sit there for 10-20 minutes. Later, wash off with clean cold water and pat dry.
As aÂ Facial Cleanser
Mix a teaspoon of creamy yogurt with a few drops of concentrated coconut milk. spread the mixture of the your face, leave it on for about 5 minutes and wipe off with a wet cloth. Finally do a cold water rinse to seal pores!
