    Once you have completely covered your hair with the coffee mixture, take the plastic bag and tie it around your head. This will trap the heat coming from the brewed or instant coffee that you mixed earlier to give you a nice deep color. Make sure to keep the plastic bag on your head for around 30 minutes.

    After removing the plastic bag, shampoo the excess coffee mixture from your hair. You might have to rinse your hair a couple of times to completely remove the coffee mixture. Dry your hair off with the towel or blow dryer and style them as usual. You should notice a nice coffee color throughout your hair, all the way to your scalp.
