I usually only post DIY recipes and tricks that I’ve tried myself but I have to admit that I still haven’t had the courage to try this tip, even though I heard of a lot of people doing it with great results. What am I talking about? Washing your locks with beer.
I know it’s weird, but apparently malt contains proteins that are said to repair damaged hair and boost volume, while the sugars present in the beer makes your hair shiny and less frizzy. Sounds great right? So, what’s putting me off?
Well, for one I hate the smell of beer and I don’t really want my hair to smell like that. And, being a teetotaller, I never have any spare beer bottles in the house. But I’m sure most of you do, so if you’re curious, try a beer hair rinse. There are several ways to do it:
1. Simple beer hair rinse
- 1 can of beer
Simply pour a can of beer on your hair and wash it off with water. You should see straight away that your hair looks shinier and looks better overall.
2. Moisturizing Beer Rinse
- 1 oz of distilled water
- 1 oz of beer
- 2 teaspoons of apple cider vinegar
- a few drops of your favourite essential oil (optional)
Mix all the ingredients together and apply the mixture to your hair after shampooing. Rinse it all off well.
3. Beer Conditioner
- 1 can of warm beer
- 1 teaspoon of olive oil
If you wanna use beer as a conditioner, simply mix it with a teaspoon of olive oil. Shampoo, then apply the mixture to your hair and rinse off well.
Have you ever used beer on your hair? How did it work for you?
