What kind of beer to choose for your hair rinse?
The effects depend also on the type of beer we choose for our rinse. The best are light beers, unpasteurised (as it was mentioned above). About half an hour before the treatment, you must open up the bottle or can to allow the drink to degas. Additionally, it is worth taking it out of the fridge to gain room temperature. The last step is connected with the pleasure of use rather than beer properties.
How to do the beer rinse?
Keep in mind that beer cannot be applied directly on hair. First of all, you must combine it with pure water in the ratio 3: 1. What is more, before applying the rinse, you must thoroughly wash your hair using a shampoo with a light detergent, to ease the penetration of active ingredients into the hair. After washing, rinse your hair with the mixture and leave it to air-dry. What is interesting is that there is no need to wash hair once again due to the fact that the scent of alcohol evaporates quickly.
