Beauty Tip: Beer Shampoo & Conditioner

There is a ton of protein in the beer’s malt and hops. Using beer will add both shine and body to your hair.

To begin,  it is important that the beer be flat. So open one the night before, take a few sips and leave the rest to settle.

Beer Shampoo:

Add about a teaspoon of beer to a tablespoon of your favorite shampoo. Then shampoo away. If you are feeling a bit daring, you can add an egg yolk for an extra protein blast. (Use the egg white as a mask before or after your shower.)  After rinsing your creation from your hair, add a bit more beer to your hair. Let sit for about 5 minutes then rinse thoroughly and follow with your beer conditioner.

Beer Conditioner:

Mix one cup of flat beer and a teaspoon of jojoba oil. Gently work through your hair. Leave on for 10 minutes and rinse well.

It will take a bit of time but if your hair is looking dull and feeling lifeless, the results are worth it.
