Ok I have heard of brunette people rinsing their hair in tea to create a nice brown color. But what about coffee??? Will this work? Will it work Nicely? Or will it look like crud? Does anyone know, or have heard of this before? Please let me know as My hair is in no shape to be dyed but my brown locks could use a lift. Thanks!

I've definitely heard of rinsing hair in tea and coffee before. However, sometimes it makes your hair oily so you need to experiment with it.

I did a little search and I found this:

2 tablespoons strong coffee
1 tablespoon boiling water
2 tablespoons creamy deep conditioner

This will make like a coffee conditioner, so it'll be doing both at the same time.

I've never tried this before (only heard about it), so please let me know how it goes.

In the words of Napolean Dynamite "Yessssssssssss!" lol thanks that was real sweet of you to reasearch that for me. I'm gonna try this. I have these random light brown spots in my hair from prev. color that got worse as I chemically straightened my hair - it was real curly. My hair looks good not dead but the color is an issue it has several shades of brown...ew so this will help yay!! Thanks again!

Mix the coffee with the water and add the conditioner to make a thick paste. Oh, it should be a deep conditioner. Leave it in as long as it says on your conditioner bottle and rinse in cool water.

Hope this helps!

Ok I'm sorry I'm a bit slow you DO mean actual pre-made liquid coffee and not coffee grounds correct? lol Just making sure. the reason I ask is because I was just about to not even post on here and ask and pour coffee in my hair to get it all one uniform dark color. The water seems like it will make it demure but that's the point I suppose lol I'm silly but Had to ask! Thanks. btw I too am a procrastinator..hehe

Ooh I must try this!
My hair is dark brown, almost black, but lately I've been having random light brown streaks that I've never seen before. I dye my hair, but the light brown isn't even my natural color.
Hopefully this will help.

I'm going to try this this weekend. Since tomorrow is my B-day I won't have time. I might have time on Thursday night but who knows. Anyway I'll let you all know what happens
I found a couple links about diff. ways for hair rinses
http://www.hgtv.com/hgtv/ah_personal_care_other/article/0,1801,HGTV_3148_1389175,00.html

ON another site someone had a question similar to mine and another person answered with a couple ways the rinse could be accomplished.

Another board where a woman notes how the coffee rinse made her shed more..YIKES!

Seattletimes discusses this with the author of "Don't leave the cosmetics counter without me"
