  • You can dye it, but it doesn't stay that color very long.

  • Never thought of coffee. I used lemon juice to lighten it in the sun, that worked well. I used cranberry juice to give my dark brown hair red highlights and that worked. Well, try the coffee on some strands as a test and see!!

  • your best bet is to use real hair dye. You can find it as low as 4$ and well worth the money to make sure you get the even look you would want. I use Perfect 10 and t costs me about 10 dollars and I color every 6 weeks and my hair looks beautiful and healthy. I have used walnuts in the past and they wrecked my hair.

  • Even though you will have to do it every month, you can use tea and coffee to dye your hair darker....not sure exactly how dark it will get though..

  • Yeah, coffee is going to stain your hair, not color it. And koolaid is murder on your hair! LOL it's loaded with acid. Just color it.
