    Greetings,

    Do you think that by adding coffee flavor in a shampoo with caffeine will make it more pleasant to use?

    Thank you

    Just use coffee. Our new coffee / licorice / stevia shampoo is flying off the shelf at $10 per 400mL bottle. Customers absolutely love it. The experience of having a latte on your head is pretty good!

    @belassi I just pictured a hair care line of different coffee flavorings and the slogan being “the experience of a latte on your head is pretty good” I couldn’t stop laughing.

    @Belassi, Awesome! Congratulations! Are you using a specific coffee extract?

    @sabahi, it sounds funny, but I kinda think that having a slight coffee flavor in a shampoo with caffeine/coffee is better. :)

    The “extract” is percolated organic coffee from Veracruz, Mexico. That is one of the reasons the shampoo is quite expensive. It is made extra strong so that after the surfactants are added it still is the correct concentration, like normal coffee would be. The aroma lasts until it is finished. No artificial fragrance is used.
