How Washing Hair With Beer Is Healthy

You’ve probably heard by now that washing hair with beer is a natural way to add healthy shine and bounce to any type of hair. Granted, not everyone can get the technique right on her first try. If you’re afraid of leaving your hair smelling yeasty for days, having qualified beauty students treat your hair the first time can be a good option. You can try it on your own later, after you know what the process is supposed to look and feel like. Whether your hair is dry, damaged, oily or healthy, beer can help improve your hair’s texture and quality easily.

Washing Hair with Beer Repairs Damaged Strands

The beer itself is composed of malts and hops, which are protein-rich and will form a protective sheath around each strand of hair. Although it doesn’t penetrate deep enough to actually heal the damage, it protects your hair long enough to let it heal on its own, which is a huge benefit. This is especially great for sun damaged or chemically damaged hair, which often needs a little more protection before it is able to recover fully.

Better yet, the proteins will make your hair look shiny and full, so your hair will look healed and beautiful while it is in the process of recovery. It helps minimize frizz and discoloration, as well as smoothing down split ends and similar issues. Beer does have a pungent smell, but you’ll usually follow the routine with a quick rinse in your favorite conditioner, which will minimize any unpleasant effects and play up the softness that you’re already experiencing after the treatment.

Make Washing Hair with Beer a Regular Part of Your Routine

Like any self-care routine, washing your hair in a beer treatment works the best when you remember to do it regularly. This doesn’t mean using beer every single time you wash your hair, but it does mean that you should treat it on a monthly basis, depending on the health of your hair. If you need it, treat it more often. If you go to a beauty school for your treatments, make sure to schedule the next one as soon as you step out of the chair.
