Friday’s Formula: Milk & Honey Hair Smoothie – Pre/Post Swim Conditioner

Sorry, I know that I am late on this and some bloggers already beat me to posting this recipe but I will go ahead with what I planned anyway. This recipe was created by Mahisha Dellinger the founder of the Curls product line (I love their products).


* 1 can of pure coconut milk (rich moisturize - hydrates, conditions and de-frizzes hair)
* 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 do 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.
Smooth hair into a protective style (e.g. braided ponytail, or bun).

Thanks for reading. Be blessed!
