Gradually mix all the ingredients together, starting with the red palm oil. While adding coconut oil and milk, stir constantly so the mixture becomes uniform. Then heat it in a microwave for about 30 seconds (just to warm it up) and then apply on hair. Afterwards, put on shower cap and leave the mixture on your hair for at least 1 hour (ideally for 4). Rinse with warm water and then wash your hair with your regular shampoo.
