You can use beer for hair rinse or like a part of homemade hair masks. Beer that was made from natural ingredients contains a lot of nutrients that your hair likes. Because beer made from yeast, hop and malt there is a lot of vitamins B, Cooper, Phosphorus, Magnesium and iron in it.
Beer is very good for oily scalp and hair because alcohol cleans and stimulates blood circulation of the scalp. If you have oily hair you can use it for hair rinse and treatment. Beer will give your hair volume and shine and hair will be more obedient if you going to make some hairdo 🙂
There are some doubts about using beer for hair treatment:
Smell. You have to wash out beer with flowing water (shower). The smell will disappear in a few minutes after this.
Alcohol. There is nothing wrong if you have oil hair but beer doesn’t fit dry sculpt and dry hair or if you are using very aggressive hair dye. It will make your hair drier and make scalp feel uncomfortable. If you would like to use all useful ingredients of beer you have to remove alcohol from it. You need to heat it up but not boil.
Color. If you have dark or dark-blond hair you can use any kind of bear (I prefer light). If you have very light blond or your hair was bleached it is better to avoid using bear because it can darken your hair.
Beer hair rinse
This is the simplest way to use beer to improve your hair look. I use light, warm and flat beer (you need to leave beer open for 30 min or 1 hour). It is better to find organic beer without preservatives. Wash your hair like usual, wash down shampoo and after that rinse with beer. Don’t wash beer right away keep it on your hair for 3-5 min after rinse out beer with clear, running water.
Mask with beer and eggs (for oily and normal hair only)
Put one egg yolk to 100 ml beer and mix it. Rub mixture into scalp and distribute the rest of it by hair length. Put on a shower cap and keep mixture of eggs and beer on for 20 minutes. Rinse it out with water. Your hair will be shinier and will grow faster.
Please keep in mind this recipe doesn’t fit for dry hair.
This should be done no often then once a month.
Mask for dry hair
Put in glass of warm, flat beer, a tea spoon of olive oil; mix it and apply it to hair. Keep mixture for 20 min and rinse it out with water. You can use shampoo if it is necessary.
Mask that makes your hair thick and speed up the hair growth
Flood 200 g of rye bread with 500 ml of beer and leave mixture for 2 hours. You need to shake it up in a blender. Apply mask on clean hair, put on a shower cap and a towel to keep it warm. Leave it for 30 min. Wash out with water with a small amount of apple vinegar.
For all these solutions you have to use warm (room-temperature) beer and keep in mind your hair type. If you do beer treatment right you will have great and shiny hair.
