Coffee and Your Hair

There’s nothing like a hot cup of coffee first thing on a cold morning.  But before you brew your next cup of Joe, consider some other ways to use that coffee for more than just your morning (or afternoon) pick me up.

Coffee for Hair Growth

Why stop with your skin when your hair can benefit from caffeine as well? The way that caffeine increases your circulation can be applied to hair growth. When massaged directly into your scalp, caffeine can stimulate the hair follicles to speed up growth. Let brewed coffee chill, and pour it into a spray bottle for easy use. While in the shower, spray the coffee onto roots as an after-cleansing scalp treatment, and allow it to sit for as long as possible. Rinse your hair, and use products as usual. You will likely notice less shedding and increased hair growth with regular use.

Coffee for Hair Color

Women with naturally curly, dark hair have discovered coffee as a great hair color enhancer. It can darken and add shine and dimension to hair. Use very strongly brewed coffee as a hair soak or rinse. Pour it through the hair, and allow it to really sink in. Make sure you protect any light colored clothing or surfaces in your home (line your bathroom with old newspapers or towels), and do not let the coffee run down your face. A shower cap is a great way to keep hair up and protected while doing a treatment. For a thicker moisturizing mask, mix coffee grounds with your favorite oil or conditioner. Your hair will be left shiny with an even tone. These mixtures can be added to henna hair dyes to amplify the darkening effects. You can also add cocoa powder to make the mix even darker!
