@Lyn I don't have gray hair so I do not know if you can use coffee to cover gray naturally without using chemicals. I do not see any noticeable difference in hair color but then again I haven't paid attention.
@CueBallBob let us know how it goes. I too am using coffee as leave in conditioner. In the beginning I tried mixing coffee with Castile oil but the smell makes me think that it is not chemically stable so I decided to use pure coffee and nothing else. When I finish shampooing and rinsing, I pour coffee onto my scalp, massage, leave for a few minutes, then do a very quick partial rinse with small amount of water and then towel dry, trying to leave as much coffee on my scalp as possible without carrying the smell.
@Lucky it has been working great. Helpmeout is right, why bother making a coffee shampoo when I can use pure coffee as leave in conditioner. My hair feels thicker and stronger, more texture these days. I can't talk about hair growth but it has certainly slowed down my hair loss as I do not see a lot of hair all over the sink these days.
I actually look forward to this regimen every morning as the coffee smells really good , i think the smell of coffee alone wakes me up even though I am just pouring coffee onto my scalp.
@karxxx what measurement do I use to create a 3% coffein formula with alcohol and dmso? I mean how much coffee is needed to create 3%? I am happy with my coffee recipe right now so I will not change it just yet, but I am hoping to make my own topical spirolactone as anti androgen and I would like to know how much spirolactone tables do I need in order to make a 5% topical formula. I plan to mix spirolactone tablets with topical minoxidil but not sure how many 100mg spirolactone tables do I need in a 60 ml bottle. Sorry, am not good with math or science at all.
@Parminquale1943 Hey I have been using pure fresh brewed coffee for well over a month now as leave in conditioner, am very happy so far. I can't talk about new hair growth yet but I can clearly feel that my hair texture seems thicker and fuller. Also I do not shed as much in the morning so that is another good sign that this is working for me.
Good luck guys, please post here if anyone has other ideas.
