COFFEE FOR THE HAIR?
Coffee has a long list of purported benefits for the body, such as the ability to make hair healthier. While some people have no problem pouring cold brew over their hair (and getting excellent results), you might wonder: Is it good to use coffee on my hair?
I. Restores hair growth
Hair loss can occur with age, affecting both males and females. Applying coffee topically to hair and the scalp might stop hair loss and promote regrowth.
In the case of male baldness, hair loss typically occurs when the sex hormone dihydrotestosterone (DHT) damages hair follicles. Women with too much DHT can also experience hair loss.
Hair follicle damage occurs gradually, eventually leading to baldness. But according to research, the caffeine in coffee can help stimulate hair growth and stop hair loss.
One 2007 laboratory study found that caffeine helped block the effects of DHT in male hair follicles. It stimulated hair shaft elongation, resulting in longer, wider hair roots. It also prolonged anagen duration, which is the hair growth stage.
The study also tested the effects of caffeine on female hair follicles and found that it had a growth promoting effect on hair follicles in females, too.
Since caffeine is a stimulant, it also increases blood circulation to hair follicles. This too can help hair grow faster and become stronger, giving the appearance of fuller, thicker hair
II. Promotes softer and shinier hair
If your hair appears dull, brittle, and dry, adding moisturizer can revive its appearance. Surprisingly, though, rinsing your hair with coffee may also improve dullness because it contains flavonoids, which are antioxidants that promote hair regeneration.
Your hair shaft can become smoother. This can relieve frizziness, resulting in hair that’s softer and easier to detangle.
Because caffeine has a diuretic effect on the body, you might think it’ll have a drying effect when applied on your hair.
However, caffeine doesn’t strip the hair of oils. Rather, it can help your locks retain moisture and create a natural sheen. Increased blood circulation helps move nutrients to the hair roots, resulting in healthier, shinier hair.
Therefore the main ingredient we base our products on is COFFEE! Try and see its power for yourself:
