My mum won't let me use anything on my hair not even henna!:( I was wondering if anybody knew of any good methods to make your hair a darker brown fast I know coffee brewed black possibly works any ideas or opinions? Would be greatly appreciated and if anyone has used Mira hair oil before ???????

    I don't know about Mira oil as I've never used it but another option for darkening hair is to use black tea.
    I'm not sure how effective that is comparably to coffee but I've heard that it works.
    Hopefully more people will chime in!(:

    Oh wow thanks everybody and did your hair smell like coffee? How many treatments till your hair got that dark?
  • crazycurlychickcrazycurlychick Posts: 344Registered Users
    Yeah it smelled like coffee for about two washes afterwards and it only took one. I poured the coffee on my hair and let it sit for like 5-10 minutes in the shower then rinsed it really well. Beware you need to rinse the shower or it'll leave a dirty look to it.

    dark coco powder would give you a nice colour as well, try making a past with the coffee and coco powder. let it sit for a while if you can under heat, if not first wash your hair with warm water, then heat the coffee/cocopowder mixture up and add it too your hair. you might smell really yummy for the first few days though :lol:
