Is it worth trying something here?

What about pouring some coffee over ones head? I read that instant coffee is not safe...so then what do I do? Beans?

lol Im just curious about this stuff kinda. If it helps a little, which i suppose it would. I want to give it a try.

I have read a from numerous sources online that caffeine when applied to the scalp promotes hairgrowth.

So, whats the best way to do this? Do I buy beans or what do I do?

What do you guys think?

Anyone tried something like this?

Isn't caffeine the ingredient used in Alpecin shampoo?

Anyone know where to get some sort of caffeine solution? I'd try it. Not paying for Alpecin when caffeine is one of the most abundant drugs in the world though.
