How beer can strengthen your natural hair


With too much sun exposure, your hair is more prone to breakage and a dull appearance.

Keeping your hair strong and shiny during this time of the year can be quite a difficult feat. Natural hair is more prone to becoming damaged, fried, and dehydrated from too much sun exposure.

One way to combat this is with beer. Yes, you read correctly.

A beer rinse has been found to be great for natural hair. There are essential oils in hops that are rich in antioxidants which can fortify and strengthen the hair. Beer also contains B-vitamins and proteins which are great for conditioning.

Here’s how it works:

You will need two bottles of lukewarm beer (any beer will do).

Wash your hair with your normal shampoo/conditioner.

Now take the beer and pour it all over your hair. Make sure that it covers each hair strand from root to tip.

Let it sit in your hair for 5-10 minutes.

Now rinse and shine!
