Not only is coffee delicious, it’s also nourishing for your hair. Many of us rely on our daily coffee to function and be productive but did you actually know it was good for your hair? Caffeine promotes hair health in various ways, from limiting damage to delivering key nutrients and vitamins for longer, stronger hair.

Now that you know caffeine is good for your hair, it’s time to find out why. Researchers say that caffeine targets a hormone called ‘DHT’, that is known to cause hair loss. Increased production of DHT can prevent vitamins, proteins and minerals from helping hair follicles grow. Caffeine works to counter this through increasing the production of ‘ATP’, a form of energy that encourages hair growth.

Restores hair growth. Due to caffeine being a stimulant, it also works to increase blood circulation to the scalp which promotes healthy hair follicles that grow faster and stronger. Working to restore hair growth is important in cases of male baldness or hair loss that may occur due to too much DHT. As caffeine works hard to counter DHT, research shows it also works to elongate the hair shaft for longer, wider hair roots. It may also prolong anagen duration throughout the hair growth stage.

Promotes shinier hair. Dull, brittle, damaged hair? Applying caffeine to your hair has been shown to improve dullness through delivering flavonoids, antioxidants that promote hair regeneration. When these antioxidants are delivered throughout your strands, it can also lead to less frizzy, more manageable hair. Caffeine helps your hair retain moisture and develop a natural shine due to the increased blood circulation moving the nutrients through the hair.

Will consuming coffee give you these benefits? Sadly, simply drinking coffee cannot provide you with these beneficial results. You would have to drink a lot of it in order to start noticing results BUT, consuming too much caffeine can negatively impact your hair growth cycle and cause various health problems. With that being said, in order to experience the amazing benefits of caffeine on your hair, apply it through hair products topically to truly sink into your strands and deliver the key nutrients needed.
