    Default Coffee hair dye, mayo conditioner, other hair recipes

    I have this hair color that's not quite blonde and not quite brown and I always toy with dying it darker because I love brunette hair. I did it once and loved it but now am not wanting to even spend the money on hair color, so I thought "what around the house could naturally darken my hair? Coffee!"

    I haven't done it yet, but in my search for tips on rinsing my hair with coffee, I found the following site with lots of recipes for hair care products (like oranges boiled in water for hair spray):

    (scroll down a bit to see the links to other product recipes)

    This is an interesting site, thank you for sharing it. If you use the coffee to dye your hair let us know how that turns out. I dye my hair golden blonde every 6 weeks and I use a hair dye that's only $7 after coupon.
