Beer is good for your Hair!

Apart from having a few beers in the sun or by the sea, you could actually use that pint on your hair – sounds strange doesn’t it?

Beer’s Vitamin B and sugars help give your hair that extra shine and strength. The hops and malt, which are proteins, will help with damaged hair. In summer our hair is continuously being damaged by chlorine from pools, the sun and any chemical processing it may undergo. The sugar found in the beer helps to close the cuticle of the hair which in return will give the appearance of a shinier look.

Here is how to do it:

Step 1 – Grab a can of beer, any beer will do. Pour into a glass and leave it to set for a few hours or even overnight

Step 2 – This is best done in the shower to assure that no beer is left on you and will be completely rinsed out. Shampoo your hair as you would normally do and massage gently into scalp and rinse out well.

Step 3 – Have your beer ready to pour onto your hair. Make sure it’s in your hair from roots to ends. Then massage gently into scalp using circular motions for a couple of seconds.

Step 4 – Let it sit for 2 minutes.

Step 5 – After the 2 minutes have passed rinse your hair with lukewarm water, not too hot but not cold either. Make sure you rinse it thoroughly to get all the beer out.

Step 6 – You can also condition your hair after this step to get rid of that beer scent. Leave the conditioner in your hair for a few minutes and rinse.

Step 7 – Towel dry and style as normal and take a look at your happy, shiny and bouncy hair!

A pint gone to a good cause! Cheers!
