Dying your hair with coffee
Dye your hair with coffee
I have heard of people dying their hair with triple strength coffee and want to make my light brown hair darker but keep it natural. I have thick curly hair that goes down to my middle back. How much prepared coffee would I need to dye it and what would the coffee:water ratio be for triple strength? Would this actually work and how intense would the color change be?ANSWER:
I can’t say I know much about this, but after receiving your question I did a little research. It seems that plenty of people do use coffee to dye their hair in a natural way.
From what I can find out, you’ll want to make about three jugs of coffee, let them cool and then pour them into a basin or sink. You then wet your hair repeatedly with the coffee. As for the intensity of the result, you’ll have to experiment and find out!
I don’t think you need to worry too much about the exact proportion of three to one, so just add about three times the amount of ground coffee compared to when you make coffee for drinking. If your filter won’t take that amount, then fill the filter as normal, but run just one third of the normal amount of water through each brew cycle.
If it works out well, please come back here and let us know!
