  1. Yes, regular use of coffee dye makes hair brown.

    Take the quantity as per your hair length. Like I need a full cup of henna powder as I have hips length hair.
    Mix 2/3 tablespoons of olive/coconut/almond oil and same quantity of honey in the morning.
    Apply all over your hair. Make sure that the consistency of the mixture should be thick, not runny.
    Wait for max 3 hours and wash with shampoo and apply conditioner.

  2. If you are using an oxidative color,no. The only success I have had with us is mixing it with Henna as they are both natural products.

  3. If you are just using coffee to try to darken your hair, it will work a tiny bit, if your hair is pre-damaged so the coffee can stain more deeply into each hair fiber. (chemically permed/straightened, dyed much lighter, or bleached).
    In bleached blonde hair, it will make the blonde appear cooler and a little more ashy, but it will not turn it brown (or dark). In unbleached hair, it probably will not darken the hair at all. Even the sites that show that it works a little note that it needs to be be made extra-extra strong and left on the hair for 20 minutes after *every* shampoo (because it washes out with each shampoo).

    You’re better off using a pigmented shampoo in a brown shade. It’ll be less expensive than all of the high quality coffee required to make the coffee-dye work.

    However, if you mix coffee with henna or indigo, (the real ground up plants, not chemical dyes with artificial “henna” or “indigo” hues ), you can help the henna/indigo absorb better into your hair. This is because henna/indigo like to have a mildly acidic liquid to rehydrate it into a paste. The acid allows the pigment molecules to leech out into the paste faster, and it helps it adhere to the surface of your hair better. For example, these hair swatches were dyed with henna and hot water, or henna with some lemon juice. The difference is pretty big. Coffee is another decent acid to add to henna instead of lemon, so yes, coffee *can* darken henna, just not your natural hair.
