Milk & Honey Hair Smoothie Recipe

Here is a recipe I found on Breakink New Ground. This recipe was created by Mahisha Dellinger the founder of the Curls product line. As per the instructions, you can use the mix for styling. This is a rinse out not a styling product. Let us know how it works for you.


* 1 can of pure coconut milk (rich moisturizer - hydrates, conditions and de-frizzes hair)
Ripe Avocado
 * 1 ripe avocado (natural source of protein - chlorine robs the hair of protein)

* 2 tablespoons of pure honey (conditions and adds sheen)

* 2 tablespoons of olive oil (hydrophobic oil that acts as a barrier to chlorine and salt water)

Add ingredients to blender. Mix at high speed until your concoction reaches a smoothie consistency.

Store in refrigerator for up to 2 weeks. You can warm up your hair smoothie in the microwave before next application...just enough to de-chill.

Feel free to substitute the olive oil for any natural oil of your choice.


Add more oil for extra dry hair, e.g. 1 tablespoon.

Add more honey for hair that needs more sheen, e.g. 2 tablespoons.

Instructions for Use:
Section hair into 4 segments.

Generously apply evenly to hair, from root to ends concentrating on they are the most prone to damage. Leave in for about 15 minutes then rinse off.

Smooth hair into a protective style (e.g. braided ponytail, or bun).

Keep it natural!

It is a rinse off. Can I just say that when making a choice of coconut milk, read the ingredients to make sure it is pure coconut mix or it does not contain ingredients that are bad for the hair. The wrong choice will make your hair feel dry/ coarse instead of moisturised. Leave on hair for 15 to 20 mins but because it is made from pure natural ingredients you can leave in hair for up to 45 mins b4 washing off. Oh and cover your hair with shower cap to help it penetrate.

Is this a leave in mositurizer or do you have to rinse out? If you rinse out how long should it be left in the hair? What ingredients in the coconut mix maybe bad for my hair?
