Dyeing gray hair with instant coffee: is it possible?
There are those who dye their hair with coffee to keep their black locks shiny, but there are also those who resort to the recipe with instant coffee to cover gray hair. The effect can even be achieved to cover the first gray strands that appear, but the result lasts a short time and there is a great chance that the color will not be uniform.

Does the coffee powder in the shampoo darken the hair?
The best way to dye hair with coffee is to put its liquid (and cold) version on the hair, then mix the soluble powder into the conditioner, as the recipe in the previous topics teaches. Coffee shampoo, in fact, is a popular recipe on the Internet that is more associated with the growth of strands.
It all started with a study conducted by the University of Lübeck, Germany, which proved that caffeine, applied directly to the scalp, helps treat hair loss, increasing the growth of new strands up to 25 %. But there is a catch: the substance used by researchers is not the same as the coffee we consume at home. To achieve this result, they actually used anhydrous caffeine, a synthesized version that is pure and without water molecules.

But remember: the effect won’t necessarily be the same as what scientists get from anhydrous caffeine.
