Full Answer

The easiest way to use coffee to darken hair is to brew a strong pot of coffee and let it cool down completely. Completely saturate hair with the coffee brew. Let it sit for a few minutes before washing out. Repeat the process until desired color is achieved. Wash hair with regular shampoo and conditioner after dying it with coffee.
