I Dyed my hair with COFFEE

Yes you read that correctly...Coffee... But I was pretty bad...I didn't take any before and after pictures...so you'll just have to trust what I say :)

This is how I did it...

*I did wash my hair right before I did this, because I had been swimming a lake earlier, and I wanted it to be going on a clean surface...

1: Have about 3-4 cups of room temperature coffee

2: I added a splash of Vanilla extract, to cut back on the coffee sent (optional)

3: Douse your hair about 15 times with a cup, in the coffee.

4: Let it sit on your hair for at least 30 min...(can do more if you want it to be darker)

*Don't wrap your hair in a towel, because the towel will soak up the coffee, instead of your hair :)

5:Rinse your hair, until your water runs clear.

You don't have to condition your hair, because the coffee is it's own conditioner...My hair feels SOOO soft! and shiny!

My hair is already a dark brown, but I have noticed that lately it is getting even darker, so my roots are 2-3x's darker than my ends. Causing my hair to look greasy/oily...NOT a pretty sight, when you know it's clean! So now my ends are pretty much the same color as my roots, and my whole head is Shiny and soft.

Would I do this again?

For dying my hair? No, because my hair is already so dark, that it didn't do that much to it...unless I need to quickly dye my ends to match my roots. don't get me wrong it worked!

For a deep Conditioning Treatment? MOST DEFINITELY!

Hair types this will most likely work the best on:

Blonde's, who want a quick change, that doesn't cost a lot of money, and isn't more chemicals going on your already bleached hair (the latter for the ones who've dyed it blonde)

It'll work fantastically for you!
P.S. I'll let y'all know how fast it washes out!

Oh wow! I've never heard of dying hair with coffee! Who knew? My hair is kinda dry in the summer so this might actually work for me. I'm not brave enough to try it though :-(

XOXO~ Renee

Omg I wanna try this so bad but I don't wanna do it and then it looks bad. If I don't like it... how long does it take to washout?

It takes about 4-8 weeks, its about the same as a 28 shampoo color, because it is a stain...kinda like a henna....

would this work on dyed hair? my hair is natually strawberry blonde, but I dyed it to a sandy blonde with platinum looking highlights, I want to get it back to my natural hair color, or as close as I can get it.
