Coconut-Avocado Hair Milk is a stable, water-thin, oil-in-water emulsion designed specifically for use in hair care. Utilizing oils with known benefits for hair, it is prepared by ultrasonic cavitation along with a plant-based, biomimetic phospholipid resulting in the formation of micro-droplets. Coconut-Avocado Hair Milk uses carefully selected botanical ingredients, resulting in a multi-functional product that provides proper oil and moisture balance with an improvement in shine, frizz and overall appearance of the hair
Coconut-Avocado Hair Milk easily penetrates and nourishes the hair. With nearly half of its fatty acid profile made up of Lauric Acid, coconut oil has a natural affinity for hair. Hair protein easily binds with Lauric Acid, which can gradually lead to the strengthening of hair strands, reducing breakage. In addition, the well-known qualities associated with coconut derivatives such as purification and revitalization, are subsequently beneficial for the hair. Avocado oil, rich in fatty acids and vitamins essential for healthy hair and skin, imparts an overall luxurious and creamy feel.
Gene expression studies conducted on the special phospholipid found in Coconut-Avocado Hair Milk show its ability to regulate genes and pathways responsible for bringing hair and skin into balance. The inclusion of this phospholipid also aids in the structuring and stabilization of the emulsion. The carefully selected combination of these ingredients in this milk helps fortify and condition the hair resulting in enhanced gloss and softness.

Technical Details & Test Data+
COCONUT-AVOCADO HAIR MILK SHINE STUDY
A study was conducted to measure the effects of Coconut-Avocado Hair Milk containing systems on the level of shine on damaged hair. The damaged hair tress was treated with a shampoo containing 1% Coconut-Avocado Hair Milk and a separate damaged hair tress was treated with a mask treatment containing 10% Coconut-Avocado Hair Milk. Both systems showed a noticeable increase in shine compared to that of the damaged control.
COCONUT-AVOCADO HAIR MILK FRIZZ & APPEARANCE STUDY
In two separate studies on damaged hair, the effects of a shampoo containing 1% Coconut-Avocado Hair Milk (Study 1) and a mask treatment containing 10% Coconut-Avocado Hair Milk (Study 2) were observed.
Both studies revealed that systems containing Coconut-Avocado Hair Milk helped to improve the appearance of the damaged hair. In addition, both increased moisturization, improved the feel, and noticeably reduced the level of frizz.
COCONUT-AVOCADO HAIR MILK DAMAGED HAIR STUDY
The hair from Study 1 and Study 2 was then evaluated using the Aramo TS with lens X-1000. Based on observations, both systems showed the Coconut-Avocado Hair Milk helped reduced flaking, closed the cuticle, and improved the overall condition of the hair.
