    Hair Care with Beer

    We all love to relax over a refreshing bottle of beer. One of the best drinks to hang out with may not be the first thing you think of nourishing your hair with. A hair growth stimulator, beer has the ingredients in addition to hops and malt to give your hair shine and glow that it lacks. Just rinse your hair with a can of beer and wash it off in a few minutes.

    Saves Bad Hair Day

    Want to get rid of your frizzy hair and add "a lot of volume" to them? Put flat beer in your hair. The malt in beer nourishes and smoothes hair, while yeast strengthens your strands and pumps up the volume.

    Shampoo

    We need shampooing so as to keep hair and scalp clean. You can mix your regular natural shampoo with a beer. Massage it onto your hair and leave it for 5 minutes before rinsing off with cold water. You will need to condition hair thereafter to get rid of the beer's smell.
