Celebrated every year on the first of August, International Beer Day is observed in a way beer has best come to be associated with- to gather with friends, chill enjoy this gift of a drink. An alcoholic drink that is found in the refrigerator of almost every household, beer, apart from its thirst-quenching ability can be used to polish furniture, marinate meat, and used as a shampoo among other uses. So, is beer good for the hair as we are made to believe?
Beer is known to be good at absorbing excess oil and an excellent cure for dandruff and itchy scalps too. Hollywood stars such as Catherine Zeta Jones swears by this alcoholic drink which she professes is behind the reason for her healthy locks of shiny hair.
So, how then do we use beer for our hair? For people with oily hair and want a voluminous hair, massage your hair with a usual oil massage, followed by your usual hair wash then use the beer as a conditioner. Let it stay for about half an hour before you rinse it off with plain water.
Use it only once or twice a week. This will only help you with the oily hair but also get rid of dandruff.
To get healthy, shiny hair you can also use beer as a DIY conditioner. You can add natural ingredients like honey, apple cider vinegar, to get an enhanced beer conditioner.
