Infused Tipsy Hair Rinse
Posted on 01 August 2015
When hair feels limp and looks tired pour it a drink. Beer rinsing is wonderful for boosting the hair's volume and giving it life.
Beer is rich in vitamins and proteins. Hops, yeast and malt are the main active components of beer. They nourish the cuticle layer of the hair and treat the scalp. For the scalp it helps to control itchiness and removes light product build up.

Don't want to use beer?
Carbonated water and non-alcoholic beer can be used to substitute the beer. I have noticed that the best results are achieved by using normal beer. If you have dark hair using dark beer is great. If your hair is light in color or dyed just stick to regular beer.
The hair is left feeling strengthened, softened, smooth, shiny, less frizz, increased elasticity and volume.
This should be done in moderation. Too much of a good thing becomes a problem eventually. Due to the alcohol, in the beer, excessive use can become very drying to the hair. The rinse is good for occasional use.
