The best 'Off the shelf' coconut milk and coconut oil shampoo, use high quantities of natural ingredients in them.
Aloe Vera seems to be one of the most popular natural ingredients used in coconut milk and coconut oil shampoo.
Aloe Vera's 75 plus vitamins, minerals and enzymes, combined with the coconut oil works a treat. The Aloe Vera being anti-bacterial in nature, helps reduce skin irritations and can assist with hair growth.
Coconut milk has coconut oil in it. Coconut oil has Lauric acid in it. Lauric acid is transformed into monolaurin by your body. The great thing about monolaurin is that its regarded as anti bacterial. It also has great penetration and nourishing ability. Its small molecular structure and weight enables it to act as a super nourisher of minerals, vitamins and specific fatty acids.
When the coconut oil combines with the Aloe Vera, they make a great anti bacterial super team, that naturally helps fight a large array of potential scalp conditions, that you may have. Both coconut oil and Aloe Vera help promote healthy hair, so it makes sense that shampoo brands uses both ingredients together.
Additional to shampoo brands that use coconut milk oil and Aloe Vera, there are also many brands that are using coconut milk instead of coconut oil.
When virgin, cold pressed coconut oil is used in a shampoo, you can really smell a coconut aroma. Processed coconut oil and coconut milk is more neutral smelling.
Virgin coconut oil can be used to help conditions, such as dry skin. It has also been shown to help reduce protein loss in hair. The loss of protein is one of the main reasons for hair breakage and dryness. Both Aloe Vera and coconut oil/milk naturally helps balance your pH levels in line with your scalps pH level.
