DIY 2 Ingredient Coconut Milk Shampoo


Looking for a shampoo that takes no time to whip up and produces great lather, is gentle on the scalp, gives your hair a great lustre and contains no parabens, sulfates, chemicals and all those other hard to pronounce ingredients! This 2 ingredient coconut milk shampoo has all the benefits that coconut milk can offer combined with the gentle cleaning that comes from castille soap. That’s it – coconut milk and castille soap.

Never used coconut milk to treat your hair before. My coconut milk and lemon juice hair treatment gives amazing results in a very short time, mainly because of the MCFA’s in the coconut milk. In one treatment your tresses can go from difficult to manageable. It’s a great once a week treat for your hair or when that special occasion comes up.

But maybe you’re looking for something on a daily use basis that will combat dandruff, thinning hair or hair that has just lost it’s funk. Using the 2 ingredient coconut milk shampoo gives your hair all the benefits of the MCFAs (medium chain fatty acids) and all the gentle cleansing power of castille soap. One of the big bonuses of MCFAs for hair is that it protects the shaft of the hair from protein loss, which means slowing down the process of ageing, losing natural colour and less hair falling out. Who doesn’t want that!

DIY 2 Ingredient Coconut Milk Shampoo


A quick and easy hair treatment and cleanser all in one.

  • Coconut Milk
  • Castille Soap
  • Squirt or pump bottle
  1. Use coconut milk and castille soap in a ratio of 1:3
  2. For eg: 1 teaspoon coconut milk to 1 tablespoon of castille soap (single serve)
  3. For larger quantities: 1/3 cup coconut milk to 1 cup of castille soap will make about 330mls
  4. Even larger quantities: 1 cup of coconut milk to 3 cups castille soap will give you approx 1 litre.

Depending on your hair type, you may not need to condition afterwards. Oily hair probably not and dry hair you may need to experiment to see whether you need extra conditioner.

If you don’t have castille soap on hand you could use another paraben, sls and chemical free shampoo base but the results may not be the same.
