Coffee Oil for Hair Growth? Two DIY Recipes

Freshly ground coffee beans

Coffee Oil Hot fusion Method

➤ Combine 1/2 cup of ground organic coffee beans with 1 cup of your favorite oil in a pan. I like extra virgin olive oil, sunflower oil or coconut oil.

➤ Heat up on very low heat stirring every now and again for 20-30 minutes. You want the oil to begin to look dark and glossy.

➤ Strain the oil. I suggest a coffee filter or cheesecloth because a regular kitchen strainer will still let a lot of grounds through.

➤ Store in a suitable bottle.

Cold Fusion Method


This is where time and patience comes in:

➤ Combine 3/4 cup of organic ground coffee with 1 cup of your favorite oil in a jar. For the cold fusion method I would suggest a liquid oil like olive rather than a solid fat like coconut oil.

➤ Cover and shake the jar to combine the ingredients.

➤ Store in a cool dry place for a minimum of 2 weeks or even up to 4 weeks. Shake the jar every few days to ensure maximum extraction.

I am not a patient soul so I have only ever done the hot fusion method but I would imagine that the cold fusion method left long enough is probably likely to extract more of the caffeine from the coffee.

Still like I mentioned before, the amount of caffeine isn’t nearly as important as how long it is actually left in your scalp for.

BONUS RECIPE

For those of you who would like to see if your hair benefits from the coffee experience without wasting oil to find out, a simple coffee rinse/spray should be right up your street.

Just brew 1 cup of strong coffee and allow it to cool. To apply you can either use it as a rinse in which case you would pour the coffee into a jug, dilute with some warm water and while standing in the shower, stream the mixture through your hair while massaging your scalp with your other hand. Let it sit for a couple of minutes while you attend to other shower duties then rinse and move on with the rest of your wash routine.

Another option is to pour the brewed cup of coffee into a spray bottle and spritz the mixture directly on your scalp before rinsing. You might find this method more to your liking if you have light colored hair because coffee will stain light hair!

You can use any of these recipes once or twice a week during your wash days with no adverse effects.

Happy hair growing!

    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….
