    • What about shampoo? Won’t your hair be dirty and greasy?

      Most shampoos actually strip the natural protein called “keratin” from your hair. it’s essentially like taking enamel off of teeth, very damaging.

      it’s actually healthier for hair to just be conditioned daily and genuinely washed once or twice a week to allow your hair to recover. The milk basically acts as a moisturizer and anti-frizzing gel in one since milk has fats in it that help the hair out.
      and to yaj11471, it can be used on African American hair. you’ll probably still have the curls, but at least it’s cheaper than going out and buying anti-frizzing creams.
      hope this comment helped!

    • Milk? Does it matter the fat content? Skim, 1%, 2%, Whole, Goat?

      The instructions read “regular milk” so I would say whole.

  1. the instructions do not say if you are to rinse your hair either after letting milk sit and before putting conditioner in, or after you put conditioner in or both?

    • The instructions do not say if you are to rinse your hair either after letting milk sit and before putting conditioner in, OR after you put conditioner in or both?

      Yes they do, they say:
      1. Spray your hair with mil, wait 20 minutes
      2. Jump in the shower
      3. Condition Hair LIGHTLY and RINSE IT OUT.
      4. Towel or blow dry hair normally.

  2. this was a total waste of time and milk for me! and i followed the directions exactly as they are shown. hope anyone else gets better results.
