Did you know that a cup of coffee can do much more than help you get out of bed in the morning? Here are some changes that may occur in your hair when you stop consuming coffee.

1. Hair growth may slow down

If you’re trying to grow your hair faster, drinking a cup of coffee a day may be the solution you’re looking for! Caffeine fights against dihydrotestosterone, a hormone that can cause hair loss. It also helps hair cells produce more organic compounds that help hair when it is in the active growth stage.

2. Your hair may lose its shine

Drinking coffee, as well as many health benefits, can breathe new life into lifeless hair. Because caffeine increases blood circulation, it helps to transmit nutrients to the hair roots, making your hair strands shine.

3. Your hair may become more brittle

Drinking coffee increases blood flow in the scalp. This condition prevents hair loss by preventing hair follicles from weakening and makes your hair smoother and stronger.

4. Your hair can become voluminous

Most hair care products that contain caffeine only make the hair look fuller, while drinking coffee helps the ingredient reach the hair follicles. Because caffeine improves blood flow, it also helps make hair stronger and fuller.

5. It can be difficult to shape

Although the texture of your hair is mainly determined by genetic factors, your eating and drinking habits can also affect the quality of your hair. In addition to making hair stronger and brighter, caffeine also helps you tame unruly hair. Hair follicles become softer and more easily manageable when they receive sufficient amounts of essential vitamins and nutrients.
