Dye Your Hair with Coffee!

Coffee is amazing, isn't it?  You can use it to wake up in the morning, warm yourself up in the evening, and DYE YOUR HAIR with it??  Yes, it seems that you can, by the same principle used by some people to dye their hair funky colors with KoolAid.  I thought this was such a fun idea, and just had to share it with you guys!

What you'll need:
  • water
  • a pot
  • coffee
  • leave-in conditioner

What to Do:
  • Pour 1 1/2 cups water into a pot, and set in on a stove to boil.  Once boiling, add 6 tbsp. instant coffee to the water, and let it steep for 15 minutes.
  • Add 1/4 cup of leave-in conditioner to the coffee, and stir until the mixture becomes a paste.  Let it cool completely.
  • Now, it's time to apply!  Use an applicator (such as a makeup brush) to apply the mixture to sections of your hair at a time, beginning at the roots, as you would if you were to dye your hair from one of the boxed kits.
  • Leave the mixture on for 30 to 45 minutes, depending on how dark you want your hair to be.
  • Rinse your hair completely with water, and towel dry.  Repeat this process once a week to maintain the color.
