Summer heat is known to sizzle hair, so for one month I’m trying a different homemade hair masque. Each week I’ll post the ingredients, method, and results!
So last week’s masque was all about moisturizing. This week I wanted to focus on making my hair shiny, so this week isn't really a masque. I scoured the Internet for something different and came up with beer. I recall my Grandmother using this before in the 80s, but I never knew why. The “recipe” didn’t specify what brand of beer to use, or if cheap vs. pricey was a factor. Since I don’t drink beer, I hit up a friend who does.
- I poured a can into a spray bottle and added a little warm water.
- Then, I spritzed it on my dry hair.
- I pinned up my hair and left it on for about 30 minutes.
- Then, I rinsed it out. According to the directions, you aren’t supposed to shampoo. Maybe because I’d been smelling beer for half an hour, but I was convinced my hair smelled, so I shampooed/conditioned as normal.
Did it work? My hair did look shinier, but not sure I’d use this method again, as I already use other methods. Beer drinkers, have at it!
Would you use this hair masque?
