[Coffeea Arabica (Coffee) Seed Powder]
The shrubby coffee plant is part of the bedstraw family and originally came from the Tropics in Africa and Madagascar. Its red fruits are also known as coffee cherries. Inside these cherries are the prized beans, which aren’t just roasted for popular drinks but also ground for use in natural cosmetics. Coffee made its way to Europe via Arabia and Turkey in the 17th century. But the plant can still only be grown in a certain climate: it likes it humid and warm. The bean that has now become a major part of our daily lives can also give our hair a boost. The caffeine in coffee takes effect right down to the roots of the hair, stimulating circulation in the scalp. Something that’s less well-known is that ground coffee is also ideal for colouring hair. It darkens blonde and dark blonde hair and gives depth to brunette hair. It also adds a lovely shine to any shade of hair.
