The Monday Morning Stimulus

Beyond its rich aroma, coffee proves to be a multifaceted elixir for your hair. With the ability to promote hair growth, shield against UV damage, and even act as a natural hair dye, coffee-infused haircare is emerging as a sought-after remedy. Delve into this comprehensive guide for a caffeinated journey to stronger, shinier, and more resilient locks.

From inhibiting hair fall and stimulating growth by countering the effects of DHT (sex hormone) to enhancing strength and shine, caffeine shows potential as a versatile ally.

In fact, multiple studies support the beneficial effects of caffeine, especially when it comes to androgenetic alopecia (AGA), which leads to gradual hair thinning in both men and women. Let’s take a closer look at the supported advantages.

DHT (dihydrotestosterone) plays an important role in some bodily functions. However, it can reduce the size of hair follicles, leading to hair thinning, and eventually, hair loss in people producing higher quantities of this hormone.

Caffeine works against the effects of DHT by stopping the enzyme phosphodiesterase, which hinders factors responsible for hair follicle growth. By blocking this enzyme, caffeine helps make the hair bulb thicker and the hair growth phase (anagen) longer.

A study revealed that caffeine may prevent the harmful effects of testosterone on hair follicles and enhance hair follicular growth in both males and females. These actions contribute to the stimulation of robust hair growth by elongating visible parts of the hair, increasing the hair growth phase. 

The effects of caffeine extend beyond hair growth. Since caffeine plays a role in hair cell growth, this also suggests promoting cells that protect the outer layer of hair.

Furthermore, caffeine's positive influence on the growth of hair from the follicle enhances the overall health and appearance of the hair. Its actions on both the hair follicle and the outer protective layer contribute to a smoother and shinier texture, providing a visible boost to the hair's strength and luster.
