Milk & Honey Hair Smoothie – Pre/Post Swim Conditioner

Here’s a great hair smoothie/deep treatment recipe from Curls. I don’t swim in chlorinated pools because chlorine is to me what sunlight is to a vampire. But this would make a great DT for any parched hair. I would apply pre- or post-cleanse on dry or wet hair, and use with my Micro Hair cap.


  • 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)

Directions:
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.
