Grey hair is a big worry for young people. White hair after fifties is common and natural. But nowadays you find even teenagers and youngsters in their twenties getting grey hair. More often, they try to cover the grey hair with hair dyes made from chemicals that are extremely harmful to health. Some of the dyes are also known to contain ammonia and hazardous cancer-causing agents. That is why of late people have turned towards natural ingredients for colouring their hair.
One of the shades that come close to black is brown or coffee shade. So if you want to color your hair using natural ingredients try this coffee-based hair dye that gives a soft coffee shade to the hair strands without causing the harmful side-effects which is a part of the chemical hair dyes.
Using Coffee To Color Hair
For colouring your hair with the coffee you will require ground dark coffee, a shower cap, a towel, and a shampoo and conditioner. Now mix 4 tablespoons of ground coffee and 2 cups of conditioner until the grounds of the coffee dissolve completely.
Make the mixture smooth by blending it for some time. Wash your hair with regular shampoo and squeeze out the excess water by tightly gripping the hair strands with your hands. Put a worn-out towel around your shoulders.
Apply the mixture on your hair with a brush or simply pour it on the scalp so that it gets wet sufficiently.
Tread your fingers slowly through hair and ensure that the mixture covers all the hair strands. Massage the scalp and then cover your head with a shower cap. Rinse the hair after an hour. Use lukewarm water for rinsing until the residues are out of the hair. Clean the hair properly and dry naturally to get a soft, coffee/chocolate-coloured hair.
