The next time you’re off to a BYOB function, consider leaving one beer at home in your fridge. Why? For your hair!
Surprisingly beer can help add body and shine to your hair. It also helps clean it and get rid of any excess junk/buildup.
I was a bit skeptical about this at first since it is beer after all. I was worried my hair would smell like a frat party throughout the day, but the smell does not last long.
Start off with just one can of beer, open it and let it sit there for a while. There are many different ways to incorporate beer into your hair care routine, so I’ll just start with the simplest.
After you shampoo your hair in the shower, poor the beer on your hair. Do not rinse it out right away! Massage it into your scalp as if it were any other shampoo and conditioner. After a few minutes rinse it out with cold water, then condition your hair as normal.
If you have some more time, you can make your beer shampoo. Boil 1/4 a cup of beer and then let it cool to room temperature before mixing it with your own shampoo. Then use your mixture as a regular shampoo.
I would recommend this at home treatment after a few days of styling your hair and using different products. After a couple days my hair starts to feel oily and weighed down by all the products that I use. After trying the “beer method” I did not my hair felt a lot cleaner and fresher.
