‘Can a Coconut Milk Scalp Mask Combat Hair Loss?’

HairlossANSWERS - Click to Submit Your Query to Our Hair Loss Experts

Name: Ash

Coconut MilkQuestion: I read an article in Refinery29 that had a recipe for making a coconut milk mask that said it was to combat hair loss. Is that true? Will it really help thinning and if it does how many times a week should I do it?

Answer: Hi, Ash. Coconut oil and coconut milk are undoubtedly known for their moisturising properties so we see nothing wrong with applying either of these products to your scalp as a soothing scalp treatment. They will not, however, fight hair loss.

Looking at the ingredients featured in the suggested mask for fighting hair loss, this seems to be mostly about nourishing the scalp with coconut milk and yoghurt whilst using the camphor oil and massaging action to stimulate blood flow to the scalp. This all sounds fine as long as you take it for what it is; that is to say, do not regard this as something to stop or prevent thinning hair, but rather a cosmetic conditioning treatment to help improve the health of the hair and scalp.

If you are concerned about excessive shedding, this can be used alongside clinically-proven hair loss treatments.

The MHRA and FDA-approved medication Minoxidil is the only solution to date that has been proven to treat Female Pattern Hair Loss. However, Belgravia has also seen significantly impressive regrowth results when using topical applications of high strength minoxidil to regrow hair lost to other conditions which also cause thinning.
