If you’re the type who goes into party mode when you hear the word “beer,” then you’ll love what we’ve got to tell you. Beer is always associated with loud music, drunk teenagers, bars, or sports matches. But have you ever thought beer could be good for your skin and hair?
There has been a lot of speculation about whether the beer is healthy or not. Some say it will make you gain weight, while others promote its health benefits.
This may seem like a marketing scheme, but it is not. Anything in excess will harm you, but you can enjoy beer and its health benefits in moderation.
Why is beer good for hair?
Beer is rich in vitamin B, so it helps make your hair strong and shiny. At the same time, the protein found in malt and hops (the active ingredients in beer) can repair your damaged hair; sucrose and maltose work to strengthen the hair cuticles and make them shiny.
Beer also contains calcium (promotes hair growth), iron (prevents hair loss), protein (strengthens hair), selenium (reduces dandruff), and vitamin E (useful for everything related to beauty). So, if your hair lacks shine, you only need a beer bottle to restore volume and shine.
Even Hollywood actress Catherine Zeta-Jones claimed to have used it! Try to take advantage of the benefits of beer for hair.
Many reports claim that drinking beer is good for hair, but more recently, beer has been applied directly to the hair at home. But let me tell you, there isn’t much scientific evidence that topical application or drinking beer promotes hair growth or health, but it might be worth a try.
Here’s how you can use hair beer to get voluminous and shiny hair naturally at home:
Take a full glass of beer and let it stand until it is decarburized or “flat.” It is essential to use flat beer. Otherwise, the carbon dioxide combined with the water will harden the water and make cleaning difficult.
Wash your hair as usual with the shampoo of your choice, but no conditioner. Use beer instead of conditioner. Replace your conditioner with beer for voluminous and shiny hair!
Pour the beer on the scalp and hair and gently massage it with your fingers.
Leave the beer on your hair for about 15 minutes, then rinse with cold water. It’s okay if the beer doesn’t wash out thoroughly.
Wash your hair with beer only once a week and no more. You can also make hair masks by adding essential oils, apple cider vinegar, eggs, etc., to beer.
So, next time you order six bottles of beer, put one bottle aside to take care of your hair!
