To add body to hair, reach for an unlikely beauty beverage: beer! The
fermented drink contains generous supplies of yeast, which works to
plump tired tresses, explains Cox.
To Use: Mix 1/2 cup flat beer (pour beer into a
container and let it sit out for a couple of hours to deplete
carbonation) with 1 tsp light oil (sunflower or canola) and a raw egg.
Apply to clean, damp hair, let sit for 15 minutes, then rinse with cool
water. Or add flat beer only to a spray bottle and spritz onto dry hair.
"When the liquid evaporates, the remaining protein residue (from the
wheat, malt or hops) continues to strengthen and structure hair," says
Belkin. Treatments can be applied every other week.
