Want strong and dark hair? Here's how to use coffee for it

ET Online

Coffee rinse

Brew a pot of coffee and let it cool completely. After shampooing and conditioning, use the cool coffee as a final rinse. It adds shine, helps remove residue, and may stimulate the scalp.

Coffee scalp scrub

Mix finely ground coffee with a carrier oil like coconut or olive oil to create a gentle scrub. Massage it onto your scalp before shampooing to remove dead skin cells and promote circulation.

Coffee hair mask

Combine brewed coffee with ingredients like yogurt, honey, or ripe avocado to create a nourishing hair mask. Apply it to your hair, focusing on the mid-lengths and ends. Leave it on for 20-30 minutes before rinsing thoroughly.

​Mix cooled coffee with rosemary oil or carrier oils like jojoba or grapeseed oil. Massage this mixture gently onto your scalp after showering.​

​Scalp massage​

Add a few drops of coffee essential oil (not brewed coffee) to your favourite carrier oil. Massage this onto your scalp to stimulate blood flow and potentially promote hair growth.

Coffee hair dye

Coffee can subtly darken hair colour. Rinse your hair with cooled, strong coffee after shampooing. Leave it on for 10-15 minutes before rinsing thoroughly. This can add a slight colour boost to brunette hair, but remember, it's not a permanent dye.

Coffee consumption

Consider incorporating coffee into your diet in moderation. Studies suggest that the benefits of caffeine for hair growth may work from the inside out as well.

Use coffee-based treatments consistently for optimal benefits. Aim for 1-2 times a week for hair masks or scalp scrubs, and incorporate coffee rinses or scalp massages into your regular routine.

​Listen to your hair​

While coffee offers potential benefits, it's not a one-size-fits-all solution. Pay attention to how your hair reacts to coffee treatments.
