Want to cover your grey hair? Make yourself an espresso! Yes, you heard right! Making a DIY coffee hair dye is easy and it’s also really good for your hair. There are many cosmetic hair dye products on the market, but most of these contain chemical substances that can ruin the scalp.
This is a risk you won’t run with a natural hair dye like coffee, a useful homemade solution, especially for those with light or dark brown hair and for expectant mothers, who can’t use chemical products. Only those allergic or intolerant to coffee need to disregard this unexpected beauty aid from the word go.
Why dye my hair with a coffee dye?
The virtues of caffeine in the world of beauty are well-known for many different uses, such as the preparation of a nourishing face mask for example.
But hair can benefit from its qualities too: coffee contains tannic substances and essential oils capable of nourishing the hair, reinvigorating the keratin and preventing hair loss. And then, as well as covering white strands, a rich dark colour can add radiance to the whole head of hair.
