Coffee Oil for Hair Growth? Two DIY Recipes

coffee oil for hair growth2

Coffee is one of those products where those who love it think it’s a miracle cure all for all of life’s ailments but those who are bit more skeptical think that it causes many ailments too. I’ve heard that it can help you lose weight (bullet proof coffee) or make you gain weight (caffeine making you want to eat more).

Whatever the truth is about it’s internal health benefits, when it comes to hair and beauty, the benefits of coffee are a lot clearer. Coffee is full of antioxidants and the caffeine is an excellent stimulator which increases blood flow to the hair and scalp thereby boosting hair growth. There are in fact many hair loss or hair thickening shampoos and treatments that use caffeine as their main stimulant.

Home made tea rinses are popular in the hair care community as they help combat and drastically reduce shedding but what I would like to share with you today is two recipes that focus more on coffee. Coffee has roughly double the amount of caffeine that tea does so if you are dealing with a lot of shedding then coffee should be your first point of call to stop it in its tracks.

I love a good hair product recipe, and when I already have the ingredients required to make it already in my home, I’m even happier. The recipe is for a simple coffee oil. Why oil? Well we use oil extensively in our hair regimens for it’s moisture and shine boosting properties so it tends to be the natural place that we gravitate to. Plus coffee oil can be used a number of ways in your hair regimen.

Some people use it a light scalp oil/hair growth aid used though the week. I would not necessarily recommend this as I have seen some information that seems to suggest that caffeine while a great follicle stimulat over the short term will actually hamper hair growth if left in too long. Not to mention that you will have to go around with the slight whiff of coffee following you…..

Personally I much prefer to use it as a prepoo oil instead as I feel I can enjoy the usual benefits of a prepoo while getting in some caffeine scalp stimulation for just the right amount of time. Just apply the oil over your hair and massage into your scalp about 10-20 minutes before you wash your hair.


There are two main ways to infuse oil with coffee. The hot fusion method or the cold fusion method but it is really a lot less complicated than it sounds. Essentially, just like with brewing coffee with hot brewing or cold brewing, you are just trying to extract the goodness from the coffee grounds with either heat or time. Check out the recipes:

It is not as ridiculous as it sounds coffee has been used as stimulants elsewhere on the body….i.e smooth skin, make cellulite appear with less dimples, and not new at all but for hair.

Hey whatever works for you….
