Beer? Check. Honey? Check. Do you want to add some shine to your hair without breaking the bank? You can. A simple trip to Wegmans will take care of the ingredients you need to have shiny, healthy looking tresses.
You Will Need:
- 1 bottle of beer (I use locally made Dundee Honey Brown, any beer will work)
- 1.5 tablespoons of honey (Blondes like me will do well with Clover honey. Red? Try Wildflower. Brunettes might like Buckwheat)
- 4 cups water
Wet your hair in the shower. Shampoo as you normally would and rinse thoroughly. Pour the beer over your hair and leave in for a few minutes. Rinse with warm water. Now pour the honey and water mixture over the hair as a final rinse. Do not rinse again. You’ll notice that your hair will be shiny and bouncy without breaking the bank.
Why it Works
There is quite a bit of protein in the hops and malt of the beer. This will help coat the hair (in a good way) to help heal it and the sugars will help seal the cuticle. The honey is good for conditioning, yet it also contains cleansing properties and is naturally antibacterial.
