Welcome back to the vlog! In this video I’m going to show you how to create Five different Caffeine treatments for hair growth, it includes hair rinses, hair oils and hair masks
Coffee really is an unsung hair hero in your kitchen cabinet.
Lots of men in particular may not know that caffeine treatments are extremely useful if they’ve started experiencing hair loss.
In this 2012 study, researchers found that caffeine can even help to suppress male pattern baldness ( https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3500065/) in the laboratory environment.
And a number of scientific studies also highlight that when caffeine is applied directly to the scalp it can help stimulate hair growth: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/24836650
Caffeine helps to stimulate the blood vessels beneath the scalp,
- encourage healthy hair growth,
- slow down hair loss and can also help to
- keep hair shiny and soft.
So these homemade caffeine oils are definitely worth trying out.
Also, some of these coffee treatments I’m going to show - you can just make once, keep it in your fridge or in a cool dark place, one of them, you can keep it in your cupboard for up to 5 months, it’s so hassle free and the ingredients are all natural.
Also have no fear - the smell of coffee won’t linger in your hair.
Before we do get started, you’re going to want to bear in mind:
- Since caffeine applied to the scalp or skin can be absorbed into the bloodstream be careful not to apply the formula close to bedtime.
- If you’re blonde or have light brown hair, do be aware that these coffee treatments might darken your hair colour, so just be aware of that
- And finally for all of the caffeine oils discussed please do a patch test.
CUT TO: FORTUNA DIPS COTTON BUD INTO THE OIL Apply a small amount to your skin, I usually put a little on a cotton bud, dip and I apply behind my ear - leave it for 24 hours - if you develop a rash, or if it feels sensitive then do not do this caffeine oil treatment, at all!
So a day later, if everything is OK with your patch test, you can go ahead with our caffeine oil treatment.

- cos I’m giving you some amazing treatments for hair growth that you’re not gonna find anywhere else
It’s worth repeating:
- Don’t forget to do your patch test at least 24 hours before
- And don’t apply too close to your bedtime - it would be really annoying if you’re kept awake.
This is the very first coffee treatment - it’s super easy if the only thing you’ve got in your house right now is coffee and water.
- Coffee Rinse
So you put three teaspoons of coffee powder into warm water. I’m using about half a liter
It’s best to use a good quality coffee. Don’t use the cheapo horrible coffee, I have to tell you, I’ve compared both, and the better quality coffee - is actually better for your hair.
You can use instant coffee, but just remember to use the powder, if you have coffee granules you have to crush them into a powder.
So then get a funnel,
And pour it into a spray bottle or an applicator bottle.
I’m using an applicator bottle, I just find the applicator bottle really allows the coffee mix to get really close to the roots.
So that’s it - you can use this coffee treatment straight away.
It can be used as a rinse, you can wash your hair with it by adding it to your shampoo- you can also leave it in all night - if you don’t think it’s going to keep you awake.
So I’m applying the mixture directly to my scalp and massaging it in
Let’s go to another room - so I don’t wanna get hair all over the kitchen.

So you can wash the coffee out the following day, you can keep it in the fridge, and use it however many times per week that you need to,
Oooh yes before I forget, if you’re experiencing hairloss, I’ve put together a handy

So the second Coffee Treatment is a hair mask and it only needs three ingredients:
- Coconut Oil
- Ground Coffee
Take two tablespoons of coffee powder to a clean bowl.
Add two tablespoons of coconut powder.
Mix thoroughly until you get a gorgeous thick paste.
Three tablespoons of natural yoghurt to the mixture.
Mix, mix, mix, into a lovely thick paste.
So to apply this hair mask, get some in your hand and smooth from root to tip, all over.
And then I get my cute shower cap I leave it for one hour

About 5 years ago, I was really struggling with my hair lots of hair would fall out in my hands when I was washing it or brushing it,
So I was trying lots of different things, I packed my diet with the food specifically for healthy hair growth but the annoying thing is that you’d need to start huge quantities of the right food, so supplementing your diet with the right nutrition acts as a bridge from current nutrient levels to optimal levels.
And everything on the market, lots of other supplements are packed with fillers, additives, gummy hair vitamins have gelatin, which isn’t great if you’re following a halal or kosher diet, and they’re packed with sugar, dentists have said, you need to brush your teeth after you’ve taken them! Vitamin supplements should not be doing that to you.
So I took the plunge and set up my own brand.
I was expecting loads of women to check out our product, and I swear from the day the website launched, our very first customer was a person in Ireland, and the second order was a guy in India -
Wow! We do free global shipping - no one likes to pay shipping, you’re paying for nothing.
And I think absolutely number one, the reason we have so many customers worldwide and repeat customers is that, unlike loads of other brands - once you try It Really Works Vitamins and you dont’ feel there’s been a noticable enough difference in your hair, then we refund you, no questions asked! And I decided to call it The 90 Day Challenge, because I’m challenging other people to try us!
And I definitely think that’s how we’ve built a lot of trust - because I know it works and I feel confident that it will work for other people. And what I love is when people get in touch and they said oh I’ve told my brother about it, my barber has been asking what I’ve been doing differently, and now my barbers ordered a pack, so that’s really been the most pat on the back
And very cool also, the brand was featured in Forbes - which was amazing, a sports and nutrition writer tried The 90 Day Challenge and I didnt hear from him for almost a year, and then out of the blue I got an email I think it was addressed to all the other brands listed, I think Huel was one of them, a few other app companies, that just said, we’ve featured you in The Best Nutrition Innovation 2018, which was like, so nice, I rang my Grandma, and she was really happy for me!
And then, without even telling me, he featured It Really Works Vitamins again, so for two years running, we’re The Best Nutrition Innovation 2019, so that’s our story so far.
So if you wanted to try out It Really Works Vitamins, we do free global shipping, we ship everywhere and you can also get 10% off your first order with code MENSHEALTH10
Then you just shampoo out with a mild shampoo - I use this Palmers one - I’m not sponsored by them at all, this is really good for your hair, when you’re buying any shampoo make sure it’s Paraben and Sulphate free - because it’s much much better for you hair. I just love it.
I use this hair mask treatment around three times per week. It really helps to keep my hair healthy and shiny and is definitely speeding up hair growth.
- Coffee and Honey Mask!
Another really super simple coffee hair mask I’m gonna show you also just needs three ingredients:
- Olive Oil
- Coffee powder
Take 1 tablespoon of honey.
1 tablespoon of olive oil each and
add 2 teaspoons of coffee powder to them. Combine well to make a smooth paste.
Apply to your hair and leave it on for about 20 minutes to an hour.
Rinse off as usual.
So for the next couple of coffee oil treatments I’m popping out to the shops because I’ve completely run out of Vitamin E oil and some other essential oils and carrier oils that I need.
I thought I had it in the house, but I’ve used it all up.
So let’s go shopping!
To make our fourth Coffee hair treatment we’re gonna be using Coffee powder and Olive Oil for Hair growth -
(4) Text Cover: Caffeine and Olive Oil for Hair Growth
We’re gonna need:
- ½ a cup of olive oil
- Glass jar with a lid - I’ve used an old coffee jar
- A couple of drops of Vitamin E oil
- ¼ of a cup of dark coffee
- Applicator bottle
I’m mixing the coffee straight in with the olive oil.
Then bringing to the boil and simmering for around 2 hours
Once it’s cooled down I’m adding the Vitamin E complex
Then just shut the lid and leave it over night.
I’m just seiving it through.
Then pouring it into the applicator bottle.
You can apply this as often as every single day.
I personally apply quite a few hours before I go to bed, not just before because as I mentioned, it could go into your blood stream - keeping you awake, which is what I do not need.
Massage it in to the scalp,
Footage of me massaging it into the scalp in different outfit.
Massage, together with the caffeine and olive oil helps to wake up the blood vessels.
Caffeine increases blood circulation in the scalp and stimulates the roots of the hair helps them grow faster by suppressing the effect of DHT,
The phytosterols in the oil helps to promote moisture retention and absorption.
So applying the oil directly to the scalp, is the best way to invigorate the hair follicles,
A paper that was published recently said that you’d need to drink 60 or so cups of coffee per day to have any kind of difference to your hair - by which time you’d have a heart attack - so don’t do that.
Because this caffeine treatment has olive oil in it it’s obviously, heavier, it does make your hair a bit greasy looking
So wash it out the following day, sometimes if I’m chilling at home, and I’m not going to see anyone, I might leave it for 48 hours. Style it up really slick.
I’ve got a fifth really good Caffeine Oil hair mask for you - it takes a little bit longer, but it’s well worth it.
Please do give us a thumbs up if you’re enjoying our video and we’d love it if you’d subscribe!
For our fifth coffee hair treatment we’re using:
(5) Coffee and Coconut Oil
Green or roasted whole coffee beans (3 ounces)
Coconut oil (3 cups)I
Pour the coconut oil into a small glass jar with a lid
Add the 3 ounces of coffee beans
Cover the beans, mix well and over a slow heat, let the oil simmer for 5-6 hours
Footage of the mixture simmering
Be sure to stir the mixture every half hour or so.
Make sure your checking it regularly to make sure the oil and beans aren’t burning.
When the mixture is cooked, take it off the stove and leave it to cool.
Now that it’s cooled down I’m going to use a paper coffee filter to strain the oil and remove the beans, which can now be disposed of.
Pour the oil into a jar.
This jar will keep for a good 5 months, but keep it in a cool, dark place.
So Apply the oil directly to the scalp,
I’m putting it in my little applicator bottle
either on its own or combined with shampoo and leave. I usually leave this mixture for a couple of hours.
I did read in an afro hair magazine that some people like to do a home workout or go for a run to really get your blood pumping and to boost your circulation, and this gets blood pumping at the scalp.
Rinse thoroughly with plenty of lukewarmish water.
It’s best to avoid hot water on your hair, sometimes it’s a bit damaging.
With these coffee treatments they’re not gonna work overnight - You’ve got to be consistent and patient - give yourself a good couple of months of regular usage to really start to notice the difference.
But having said that, I’m so keen to see what kind of results I’d have in a super short space of time.
So in my next video I’m going to be doing a 7 day caffeine oil challenge! I wanna see how long I can grow my hair in 7 days, so I’ll be reporting back very soon!

I really hope you’ve enjoyed this if you’ve tried any of these, caffeine hair treatments, please do let me know in the comments below how it went.
I’m even gonna put my neck out and say these caffeine treatments are better for you than caffeine shampoos. I’ve tried a couple of different caffeine shampoos - they make your hair quite rough, you;ve got to use loads of conditioner:
Also I just found out that caffeine shampoos have been banned in The UK from making claims about reducing hair loss, because there isn’t enough scientific evidence to support his claim:
So we’ve mentioned this in a previous video,
it is important to remember with genetic hair loss - the bit that’s being influenced is right down at the bottom of the hair follicle, it’s called the hair bulb so anything applied at the surface, has to be able to get down to the hair bulb and it has to sit there.
It’s not a case of breaking through the skin and being carried around in the blood, as that just transports the caffeine away.
And so in the lab environment, hair is put in a dish and caffeine is next to the hair bulb for a number of days.
There are no studies to confirm that outside of the lab environment, caffeine can get to the hair bulb, but from anecdotal and also my personal experience, I do find that my hair has grown faster, looks really shiny, and is softer.
There is also some consenus that regularly massaging your scalp helps to stimulate the blood vessels, because healthy circulation at the scalp helps to ensure that all the nutrients are getting to the scalp, keeping everything nourished and healthy and you’ve got to lead a healthy balanced diet.
You need to make sure you’re eating the right foods, doing exercise which enhances your circulation: Footage: man exercising
reducing stress, as Cortisol, the stress hormone can move hair into the shedding phase, you’ve really got to look after yourself to get the most of these topical treatments.
As every It Really Works Vitamins are also here for you!
