We’ve just discovered another reason why we love beer, and it doesn’t have anything to do with happy hour. Weirdly enough, beer does amazing things for your hair and scalp. Volume, shine, hydration–there’s a brewsky for everything! We’re giving you the breakdown on this holy-grail product you need to add to your shower shelf. After all, it’s 5 o'clock somewhere, so read on for the buzz-worthy (literally) hair care product.
What it is: Exactly what it sounds like: beer-infused shampoo! The malt and yeast inside the shampoo (yes, the same ones inside beer) create a strong, shiny mane. Plus hops flowers are full of antioxidant-rich essential oils to help soothe your scalp.
Why we love it: Each line in the brand does its own thing! And we know what you're thinking, nope, none of them will make your hair smell like beer. Depending on which product you use, you could leave your house smelling like lavender, citrus, or mint.
Which to choose from:
Thickening: The thickening mixology of craft beer and barley protein volumizes and thickens stands. It has citrus notes of orange, grapefruit, and vanilla creme.
Moisturizing: The moisturizing formula uses fresh craft beer and shea butter to hydrate strands. As a plus, it smells like lavender!
Invigorating: The invigorating option combines malt, fresh craft beer, and peppermint to energize every strand for a stronger and shinier mane. It’s 100 percent natural, with notes of mint and rosemary.
Price: $5.99 at Drugstore.com
I tried it myself:
I really enjoyed my experience using Bröö’s Invigorating Shampoo! My straight, thick hair usually falls flat and oily in this humid summer heat. But, after using the product, I noticed my hair looking more voluminous and shiny–and not in an oily way! And, no trace of beer smell at all! The notes of mint stayed in my hair all the next day.
