I know that coconut oil is very useful for hair, but I've heard many times that coconut milk is also used, it is added in homemade shampoos, masks etc. Has someone tried to use it, did you see any results?

Coconut milk can be used not only for hair but for hair growth as well, you need to apply it on the roots and massage the scalp, then you might need to use shampoo twice to wash it out. Here's more information about coconut milk for hair loss.

Yes coconut milk is very beneficial for hair. Read more about the benefits of coconut milk for hair. Massage your head with it for 3 to 5 minutes, so that the milk enters into the roots of the hair. Allow it to stay on your head for an hour or so, and then use warm water on your head to rinse it out.

Many people who are SAD or non-paleo uses coconut milk, coconut oil, clay, different oils, eggs, mayonaise, avocados, apple cider vinegar, and much more to condition their hair.

They make a mixture, apply it to the hair, let it sit and rinse it out.

Go to youtube and search "homemade deep conditioner"

You may find that some use already prepared products and others make it from their kitchen. Coconut milk is VERY popular for hair conditioning.

I have used coconut milk and coconut oil.

They are fine. I feel as though, however, that I can get straight to the point with coconut oil.

Here are some videos:

I've seen things around that have coconut milk in them or are made primarily with coconut milk but my personal opinion is that other oils and naturally occurring items will probably be just as effective, if not more so and will probably be cheaper in the long run. It doesn't seem to be some cure-all wonder-item for hair unfortunately. I HAVE used coconut oil for frizz in my hair and it does have a mousse-like effect but it doesn't kill my frizz more than argon oil or "frizz-ease"

Good luck! Let me know if you try it and it is the end-all-be-all.
