Could you imagine the beer you drink for relax or fun can be used as the hair conditioner? It may seem to be ridiculous but this kind of hair treatment has been lasting for many years to help people who want a sleek, shiny and smooth hair. In fact, some nutrition in beer like the hops can soft the hair and make it shiny. Beer is also very useful if you want to promote the growth rate of hair and prevent it from hair loss and dryness. Though it’s good for hair, don’t use it very often since the alcohol accumulation may have a negative effect on textures.
Here we’re going to introduce two kinds of beer washing method using plain beer or boiled beer. First let’s start from the easier one. First prepare things as followed: normal hair shampoo that you’re using, measuring cup for alternative and most important, beer. You can use either bottled ones or canned beer, which doesn’t really matter.
First open the beer and leave it in air for one or two hours to get rid of the carbonation. Wash your hair normally with shampoo and rinse it clean using warm water. Squeeze the excess water but don’t use the towel or dryer to dry the hair, just keep it damp. From scalp and the bottom of hairs on, pour the beer on the hair and coat the hair with it for one to two minutes. Rinse hair thoroughly with warm water, dry and tomb the hair.
The second method needs a saucepan in addition to boil the beer. Also make the beer flat by leaving it open for an hour or two. Take one cup of beer, pour it into saucepan and heat it with medium heat. Keep it boiling till three fourths of beer has evaporated and one fourth is left in the pan. Turn off the fire and wait for the beer to cool down, then take the same amount of shampoo and mix them together. You can use it as the former shampoo to wash your hair and keep the same process.
Keep using this method for some time but not very often and you’ll see the change of your hair gradually!
