Thread: Coffee powder hair mask

  1. #1

    Default Coffee powder hair mask

    Anyone here adding coffee powder to their hair mask? If yes then are you using instant coffee or regular granular coffee powder? How was your experience with using coffee powder on your hair?

    I want to give it a try, but I currently have instant coffee at home, so not sure if that would give me any good results. So checking if I would need a regular coffee for this or instant coffee would work.

    Thanks!

    ^^ This.

    Adding something granular, and something that is even used for exfoliating to a hair mask? I don't think so. To a shampoo? Maaaybe, as then at least it will rinse out with the suds, but as a mask? Nope.

    Is this for the caffeine? What are you hoping to accomplish?

    A lot of videos floating around on YouTube these days(just like rice water videos) to get long hair and to make it smooth. So was thinking to give it a try.

    Okay, that doesn’t answer the instant vs. ground coffee question, but here’s a link about caffeine for hair growth:

    There’s no evidence I’ve read of creating smoothness with coffee or caffeine.

    Thanks for sharing the article!

    I have seen 2 types of videos - one with brewed coffee rinse and other as hair mask where coffee powder is mixed with yogurt. I am going to give it a try in couple of days and will post my experience here.

    I've heard of people using old coffee powder to exfoliate the scalp. It's not suppsed to be easy to wash out.

    Never heard of this before! I've done tea before, I'm thinking it would turn out similar
