Farmgirl Beauty Secret #71: Use beer as a hair rinse and/or volumizing tonic.

I absolutely love beer. Nothing else goes better with bratwursts and fried chicken (hey, if you’re gonna be bad, you might as well be REALLY bad). I also keep my alcohol consumption to a minimum so imagine my delight when I discovered a way to incorporate beer into my beauty regimen. Save that half bottle of flat beer next time you grab a cold one and take it in the shower with you. After shampooing, pour the remaining beer unto scalp and rinse after 2-4 minutes. Condition as usual. The proteins in the beer provide incredible body and shine to the hair.

You can also use it as a light volumizing styling product. Store a small amount of beer in a spray bottle and spray roots with the solution. Blow dry as usual. Keep bottle refrigerated and replace beer about every 2 weeks. This is a great way to obtain fuller hair without using conventional volumizing products that build up and leave residue on your scalp.


Cheers!

how neat! haha..
voluminous hair is always interesting to me! :P
does the beer leave a lingering scent when you spray it on your hair though?

Hi Kay!

Love your new profile pic ;) hmm, once you blow dry, there shouldn't be any lingering scent. Start off with just a light spray in case you are sensitive to the scent.

I'm probably the wrong person to ask though, I literally hover my nose above the bottle mouth of a freshly opened beer ;p
