Wake Up Your Hair With A Cup of Coffee!

Enhance Your Hair Color with Cafe

Have you ever thought about waking up your tresses with a cup of coffee?  Well, you might want to add that to your list of hair recipes.  

I was reading Naturally Curly's blog and they were examining alternative uses of coffee and I learned that brewed and ground coffee can both be used for hair and skin!  

So, before you throw out your grinds from your coffee maker, let's examine alternative uses for them!  

You can use strongly-brewed coffee grinds for a hair rinse or soak.  This will add shine, deepen and enhance your dark natural or colored tresses.

What You Will Need

1/2 Cup Triple Strength Black Coffee (Cold)
1/2 Cup Leave-In Conditioner
3 Tablespoon of Non-Alkanized Cocoa Powder

There are two options to obtain the benefits of your coffee grinds:

  1. After letting a cup of coffee sit and cool, pour the contents of the cup through your tresses while in the shower, or while standing over the sink.
  2. Lightly absorb the excess with paper towers, or cloth of your choosing.
  3. Put hair up and cover overnight with a plastic cap.
  4. Finally, rinse your hair until the water runs clear and dry as usual and enjoy your enhanced color.
Cafe Conditioner

  1. Take your cooled down coffee grinds and mix them with your favorite oil and conditioner.
  2. Apply mixture to your hair.
  3. Cover your tresses with a plastic cap for 25 - 30 minutes.
For a deeper toning effect, you can add cocoa to the mixture.  For those of you who Henna, this mixture can also be used in your Henna preparation for darkening the copper-tone of the Henna.

Next time your drink your next cup of Joe!  Remember, to wake up those tresses!
