Where fluff and puff becomes reality

DIY beer hair rinse

leave a comment »

My girl friend is using this 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.

Not sure if I want to step out of the house reeking of beer though. But if you intend to laze around in the provacy of your house during the weekends, why not do a DIY hair rinse with a pint or 2?

The ingredients can not be simpler than this:

1. Simple beer hair rinse

– 1 can of your favourite beer!

Simply pour a can of beer on your hair and wait for  a few minutes before washing it off with water. I used a can at room tempaerature coz the thought of ice cold beer on my head was enough to set my scalp tingling.

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 and manuka honey

Shampoo as usual, then apply the mixture onto your hair and leave on for a few minutes. I left mine on for well over an hour and did a bit of housework. Rinse off well and tadah!
