Come on in! Join Pinterest today...it only takes like a second or so.
get rid of unwanted hair ANYWHERE! For 1 week, rub 2 tbsp coffee grounds mixed with 1 tsp baking soda. The baking soda intensifies the compounds of the coffee breaking down the hair follicles at the root! (This is a curious idea. Does anybody have any insight into it?)
I am skeptical. It seems to me that caffeine in the coffee would actually stimulate the follicles if anything. Baking soda is chelating but neither of those things would actually "dissolve" hair. I call bs!
What good will it do to remove hair with a face that is stained with coffee?
Probably just a dry run seeing how many people will actually put coffee grounds on their face....
I found the original post, it was about using coffee as a facial exfoliant or faux beard, it didn't have anything to do with hair removal. http://www.instructables.co...
OH NO! If we can't trust pinterest who can we trust ;)
^ Facebook posts, obviously.
I KNEW this was the place to run this up the flag pole and see if it was bullhockey.
I'm going with "yeah right" as coffee grounds usually "wake" things up and help things (ie plants) thrive-- but who am I...?
coffee grounds really do make a great exfoliant, though. I don't use it often, but when I do it leaves my face feeling really nice and doesn't stain at all.
