We all know Catherine Zeta Jones, especially after her role in The Mask of Zorro. She’s one of the most beautiful actresses in Hollywood and she is appreciated not only for her beauty, but also for her gorgeous curls. The secret for the beauty of her hair is somewhat unusual and weird – beer. However, it is known that she is not the only woman who uses this product for a healthier and more beautiful hair.
Why women love beer
Women have been using beer to wash their hair for centuries. It seems that this ingredient is the secret to a healthy, shiny, strong and thick hair. Even the modern hair stylists agree that beer has amazing benefits for the hair. The alcohol in the beer acts like a cleansing agent for the hair and it offers the locks a glossier and finer look.
It is widely known that beer is beneficial for the skin, but recently the researchers have found that it is also good for the hair as it makes it thicker and it nurtures it. The mixture between barley, malt and hop transforms the beer in a magnificent source of vitamins and proteins and it is primarily rich in the B-vitamin complex.
Although the beer will not make the hair grow faster, cleansing your hair with this product will make it stronger and thicker, which is exactly what today’s women are looking for. Moreover, the ladies can look at beer as the most efficient and accessible tonic for the hair, treating most of the problems with just one use.
How to use beer for your hair
The simplest and most practical way to use beer for your hair is by cleansing your hair with it after you have washed it with a shampoo. Pour approximately ½ glass of beer on your hair and massage the scalp. Leave it on for about 15 minutes and after that use lukewarm water to cleanse thoroughly. Let the hair dry on its own.
Another option is to add ¼ cup of boiled beer in a cup of shampoo and wash your hair with this mixture. Cleanse thoroughly after that.
If you want more volume for your hair, then you must mix 1 cup of warm beer with 1 teaspoon of castor oil or jojoba oil and apply the mixture on your hair as a conditioner, after you have washed your hair. The beer will offer more volume for the hair and the natural oil is going to make your hair shinier.
Another solution for cleansing your hair is mixing 1 cup or water with 30 ml of beer, 5 drops of rosemary essential oil and 30 ml of vinegar. Mix well and then use the solution to cleanse the hair and massage the scalp.
Finally, a much simpler solution would be to massage your scalp with a mixture made of 1 teaspoon of apple cider vinegar, 1 tablespoon of beer and one glass of water. Leave the mixture on for about 10 minutes, then you can cleanse it.
