This past Saturday I celebrated my THIRD Blogiversary in Philly at International Natural Hair Meetup Day (INHMD) moderating the Natural Hair Blogger Panel and I had a blast! We covered everything from transitioning to moisture to the controversy behind hair typing. During the Q&A session one of the guests asked us about clarifying shampoos. Alikay Naturals Caribbean Coconut Milk Shampoo, a recent discovery, instantly came to mind and I realized I never shared it with you dolls.
I received several Alikay Naturals products at an event and I’ve been using quite a few of them. The one that I absolutely fell in love with was the Caribbean Coconut Milk Shampoo.

Consistency: Watery and perfect. I LOVE the new packaging. The bottle I had didn’t have the thin nozzle. It is absolutely perfect for applying the product directly to your scalp and hair to easily cleanse it.
My Experience: When I stretch my styles sometimes I experience a little product buildup and residue. Normally I would use clarifying shampoo but I decided to give the Alikay Naturals Caribbean Coconut Milk Conditioner and Alikay Naturals Caribbean Coconut Milk Conditioner a try. As always, I sectioned my hair into 4 parts and got to work. I used the shampoo on each section twice. I love how it lathers up and how clean my hair is after I use it.
Pros: I love this shampoo. It’s not drying or stripping. And, it’s unlike any other cleanser I’ve ever used or seen on the market. I love the originality, the results, the scent. I also love the ingredients. As with all Alikay Naturals products, it’s filled with good ingredients – water being first on the list is always a plus in natural hair products.
Cons: None. My only con was the packaging because it was a little hard to control where the product goes. But, now that the packaging has been changed and the bottle has an applicator tip I think this product is perfect.
Final Thoughts: I love this product so much I actually finished the bottle! As a blogger I receive so many products so when I finish one, I know it’s a staple. The next time you’re in Target, be sure to pick up Alikay Naturals Caribbean Coconut Milk Shampoo.
