You don’t even have to buy expensive or imported beer. On the contrary, the regular cheap brands at the supermarket will do just fine! It’s important to follow the instructions to get the most benefits out of the last recipe for beer treatments for your hair:
- Pour the beer into another container; if you want to use the treatment daily, it’s better if it doesn’t sit in the bottle.
- Let the beer settle. Open it several hours before you’re going to use it so all the gas escapes.
- Shampoo your hair first so that it’s clean. Doing so afterwards will counter the effects of the beer.
- You can condition after the beer treatment. This is recommended so that the hair will be soft and shiny, and to get rid of the beer smell in your hair.
You can also mix the beer with other products to increase its effectiveness.
Now we’ll show you some great mix-ins!
