3 Reasons You Should Use Coffee to Grow Your Hair Faster

The east African country of Ethiopia is widely regarded as the birthplace of coffee.

The coffee plant, which was discovered in Ethiopia in the 11th Century, has a white blossom that smells like jasmine and a red, cherry-like fruit. Back then, the leaves of the so-called "magical fruit" were boiled in water and the resulting concoction was thought to have medicinal properties.

Caffeine in coffee stimulates the hair follicle, resulting in thicker hair.

According to research, the caffeine in coffee can help stimulate hair growth and stop hair loss. For example, one 2007 laboratory study found that caffeine helped block the effects of DHT in male hair follicles. In addition, it stimulated hair shaft elongation, resulting in longer, wider hair roots. In another (in vitro) study of male and female hair follicles, caffeine was found to enhance hair shaft elongation, prolong anagen duration and stimulate hair matrix keratinocyte proliferation.

Promotes softer and shinier hair

Surprisingly, rinsing your hair with coffee may also improve dullness because antioxidants promote hair regeneration.

Your hair shaft can become smoother. Also, coffee can relieve frizziness, so your hair is softer and easier to detangle.

Caffeine doesn’t strip the hair of its precious oils. Instead it helps your  locs retain moisture and create a natural glowing sheen. In addition, the increased blood circulation helps move nutrients to the hair roots, resulting in healthier, shinier hair.
