Can Coconut Milk Help Hair Loss?

coconut milk hair lossCoconut oil has been on the market as a means to soften and treat dry hair for a while, but whilst coconut milk has fallen out of favour as a soft drink due to coconut water, a less fatty treat, becoming popular, coconut milk is now being touted as a hair loss treatment.

It has been claimed that coconut milk can help treat ‘hair fall and scalp problems’ and that it also treats ‘thinning hair,’ with the reasoning being that it is widely used for these purposes in the Southern states of India and other countries. It’s true that the richness of coconut milk may give it moisturising qualities that can temporarily relieve a dry scalp when massaged in, but there is no scientific precedent for the claim of it being a hair loss treatment.

 All A Bunch Of Coconuts?

Keeping your scalp in a good condition is undeniably important when treating hair loss and generally improving the quality of your scalp and hair. As part of a Belgravia treatment programme, we closely monitor the condition of your hair and scalp and when clients visit the centre for check-ups, a clinical treatment can make a real difference to your hair and scalp, even for those experiencing scalp problems.

Our hair loss specialists are happy to asses the condition of your scalp, and even really tender scalps can be soothed by gently applying a suitable Belgravia Pharmacy lotion and cream.

However, treatments, lotions and creams alone will not regrow thinning hair, they will just improve the condition. If you’re looking to stop the thinning of hair caused by the genetic condition pattern hair loss – the reason behind the majority of hair loss in women when no other symptoms are present – the hair loss medication minoxidil needs to be included in your treatment plan. Minoxidil is the only clinically proven hair loss medication available to women, which has been both licensed by the MHRA and approved by the FDA, the medical regulatory bodies in the UK and US respectively. (Story continues after video)

Don’t Milk It

Whilst the exact mechanism within minoxidil that makes it so effective as a hair loss treatment is yet to be discovered, it has shown great results in so many women when applied locally as a liquid, or for stubborn patches of hair loss, a high strength minoxidil cream.
So, if you’re looking to improve the appearance of existing hair, coconut milk may well help. However, a combined treatment programme is the only thing that can help to pause hair loss and regrow thinning areas, providing it contains minoxidil amongst other treatment boosters. Just take a look at the women in our hair growth success story archives, who are testament to the variety of hair types and conditions which we are able to treat.There are also certain added ingredients that the Belgravia Pharmacy includes in its various strengths of minoxidil, which all appear to in some way inhibit or block the androgen DHT (MPG, azelaic acid and caffeine) which causes pattern hair loss by attacking scalp follicles on top of the head, leading them to shrink and produce weaker and eventually no hair.
