If you’re a girl, you’ve undoubtedly heard about the beautifying benefits beer can have on your locks. But there’s just something wrong, and dangerous, about bringing a bottle of beer into the shower.


Fortunately, there are scads of beer shampoos on the market that will give your hair the B vitamins, wheat proteins, and maltose sugar boost people like Catherine Zeta-Jones swear by.


“The complex carbohydrates in beer have a hydrating effect, while proteins coat each strand, giving them more strength and elasticity. Not only does hair appear shinier in the short term, but it also becomes stronger to avoid long-term breakage,” shares TruthInAging.com before listing their top five picks at the beauty bar:


• Logona Volume Honey Beer Shampoo
• Body on Tap Shampoo
• Lush Cynthia Sylvia Stout Shampoo
• SmiBathnBody Natural Beer Shampoo
• Green and Greener Beer/Peppermint Shampoo Soap

We will add a few more to the mix, since they garnered top ratings on Amazon.com:


• Duffy’s Brew Original Beer Shampoo — Brewed with Elysian Brewing Company’s Stout Beer
• Tasmanian Beer Shampoo Bar
• Bröö Craft Beer Shampoo


If you do it yourself, just rinse once a month with a can of flat beer. Apply after shampooing. Work through hair. Rinse, as usual, with lukewarm (not hot) water. Oh, and choose a beer with low odor.


Not a bad way to make use of those half-empties lying around after a party or football game.
