OGX Nourishing Coconut Milk Shampoo Review

Hairstylist Tries The OGX Nourishing Coconut Milk Shampoo In 2024 (A Complete Review)

Here is the OGX Nourishing Coconut Milk Shampoo review! I’ve answered questions if OGX Coconut Milk Shampoo is good for your hair and if it’s good for hair growth and colored hair. 

When I heard about the OGX Nourishing Coconut Milk Shampoo I was quite impressed because it was the very first time I’d heard of a shampoo containing coconut milk.

And I honestly love the smell of it, because it gives me such a tropical vibe and I’m here for it!

Well, I couldn’t wait any longer and so I decided that I must try it out myself and see how well it works on my curly hair. So I went ahead and I ordered just the shampoo.

OGX Nourishing Coconut Milk Shampoo Review

I have been using this shampoo for around a month now and I must say that I am quite impressed with how effectively it worked on my curly, color-treated hair.

I did not use this shampoo along with its conditioner, which is something I should have done as the product too recommends doing so. 

But either way, even though I used this shampoo first and conditioned my hair thereafter with a different conditioner, it still felt good on my hair and made my hair feel fresh and very smooth.

OGX Nourishing Coconut Milk Shampoo Review

My curly hair sometimes gets terribly difficult to manage because it gets tangled up in no time.

But once I started using this shampoo, I must say that my tangles have reduced considerably because my hair is much smoother now and definitely more manageable. This shampoo leaves no residue and washes off well.

Talking about the fragrance of this shampoo, I simply loved it! It was not too strong and made the hair smell amazing once it was washed and dried.

Also, I found this product relatively reasonably priced as compared to other such shampoos.

One thing I didn’t like is that the product didn’t make any specific mention about whether it is safe to be used on color-treated hair, so that is the chance I took and luckily for me, it didn’t fade my hair color at all.

Another thing I noticed in the ingredients is that this shampoo contained the ingredient “PEG-150”, which is a synthetic ingredient known to be “harsh on the hair and scalp”. 

But as for me, this shampoo actually felt gentle on my scalp and hair, I had absolutely no irritation once I used it. So I considered this aspect negligible.

Coconut Milk

Coconut milk is rich in lauric acid as coconuts have a high content of lauric acid. It is a compound that can penetrate very easily into the hair shaft and promote hair strength and nourish the hair strand from within.

Thus, it can help promote better hair growth and also reduce the hair loss caused due to hair breakage.

Using coconut milk on the hair can help act as a natural hair conditioner and make the hair feel smooth and soft. It helps reduce hair dryness to a large extent.

The best part about using a shampoo infused with coconut milk is the fact that it can be used by a person with any hair type.

Coconut milk can help soothe scalp conditions and prevent dandruff from occurring. It can help rejuvenate the hair and bring luster and shine back to your locs.

Coconut Oil

Coconut oil is one that is rich in nutrients that can help nourish the hair from within. When coconut oil enters into the hair follicles, it can strengthen the hair follicles and prevent hair fall.

Using coconut oil infused shampoo on the hair can help make the hair feel soft and smooth, thereby acting like a hair conditioning agent and prevent the hair from becoming dry. It can help reduce hair damage like breakage, split ends and frizziness.

Our hair is made up of a protein called keratin and over time, it gets naturally depleted. Coconut oil can help reduce and prevent this loss of protein from our hair.

Coconut oil can also help reduce scalp conditions like dandruff and flaking and prevent scalp dryness and itchiness, as it has antifungal and antibacterial properties.

Egg White Protein

The egg white or the albumen of the egg is rich in protein. The more the protein in our hair, the better nourished our hair is. It can help enhance hair smooth hair growth, as it can nourish the hair follicles from within.

Using egg white on the hair can help reduce conditions like dry scalp and other scalp conditions like dandruff and flaking.

The more the protein in the hair, the thicker our hair will become and thus egg white protein can help increase hair thickness to a considerable extent.

It can also help tame frizz, as it keeps the hair well-moisturized and hydrated, thus reducing hair dryness. When the hair is well-moisturized, the problem of hair breakage too will reduce to a large extent, as the hair will no longer succumb to damage.

It can also help improve hair texture and make the hair look more voluminous and lustrous with a renewed shine and improved manageability, with reduced tangles.
