Coffee Overload Mix #1

Because of this new interest in caffeine for hair of course I made a product with my coffee...

I started out by infusing some Safflower and EVOO with my coffee grounds. I eyeballed the oil and coffee into the crockpot and turned it on. I left it to cook, I guess, for about 5-6 hours.

When I came back I turned off the crockpot and let the mix sit for a good 36 hours covered. I strained the oil and poured it into a bottle.

I kinda felt like it might have been incomplete so I went ahead and used the leftover coffee that I actually still had steeping from yesterdays brew. It was really nice and strong so I simply mixed the 2 together.

Half coffee, half coffee infused oil.

I was thinking about maybe doing an emulsion out of this and I think that would make a good creamy lotion that I could apply to the scalp. But for now I'll just shake it up and use it like that.

The only thing that I dont like about this, is that the coffee oil has that burnt smell. I think the crock pot may have been a little too hot. Its not overwhelming and it does dissipate after a little while. So, no big deal. I can deal with it.

I plan on applying this to my scalp every 1-2 days. Hopefully it does help to reduce my shedding and thicken back up my hair. I'm going to keep track of my progress with this and I may do an actual formula with it in the near future.

It would have been nice if I had a spray top to apply with. I'm going to have to stock up on that when I order more packaging in the future.

Hey girl!! :)

The coffee oil is actually great. It feels like its helping with the shedding really well. If I had to do this mix again I would probably do an emulsion and use a preservative.
