Beer Is Really Healthy - For You and Your Hair Too!

Beer drinkers have something to cheer about if a recent report is to be believed: The consumption of beer in moderate quantities (that means one to two glasses only!) could reduce the risk of heart disease.

The findings are based on a meta-analysis of several different studies conducted worldwide from over 200,000 people's drinking habits, conducted by Italy's Fondazione di Ricerca e Cura. It showed that moderate consumption of beer decreases drinkers' risk of heart disease by 31 per cent, just as much as moderate consumption of wine.

Non-Beer-drinkers, no need to despair. You can still take advantage of the goodness of beer by consuming it externally. Use beer as a conditioner for the good health of you hair. Yes, beer is good for your hair! Who knew?

Beer has phosphorus, magnesium, potassium and maltose which makes beer a natural hair care ingredient. Biotin in beer prevents hair loss and dandruff. Maltose strengthens the hair and with vitamin C it brings natural shine in the hair. Although it is debatable whether the corn, rice, or wheat protein in beer can actually deposit on your hair to form a strengthening film, there is no question that it makes hair seem thicker. This effect may be attributed to the proteins left on the hair fiber, though beer also seems to slightly swell the hair shaft.

Don't rush to dispose of your shampoo though; Beer alone isn't going to go ahead and replace shampoo or whatever else you may already use on your head. When experimenting with beer as a hair product, it is recommended to use traditional brewed beer made from hops to maximize nutrients and minimize chemicals.

I know, I know, let's get to the point of how you can consume (eh! apply) beer to get healthy good looking hair.

Here's the recipe:
Put some life back into flat hair with some flat beer. Before you get into the shower, mix 3 tablespoons beer in 1/2 cup warm water. Shampoo your hair as you normally would, rub in the solution, let it set for a couple of minutes, then rinse it off. After you shampoo your hair, rub in the solution, let it set for a couple of minutes, then rinse it off thoroughly. You may be so pleased by what you see, you’ll want to keep a six-pack in the bathroom. Tee hee hic!

Raw Egg and Yogurt:
Before you get into the shower, mix half a cup of cold yogurt with 1 raw egg (york & all) - not the egg shell, silly! After you shampoo your hair, massage your scalp with the solution, let it set for a couple of minutes, then rinse it off. Rinse off well unless you want your hair to smell of eggs. Yummy!!

Is your hair dry and brittle? Try buttering it up for a luxuriant shine. Massage a small chunk of butter into your dry hair, cover it with a shower cap for 30 minutes, then shampoo and rinse thoroughly.

To give a natural shine to dry hair, use a quart of warm, unsweetened tea (freshly brewed or instant) as a final rinse after your regular shampoo.

For blond highlights worthy of the finest beauty salon, add 1/4 cup lemon juice to 3/4 cup water and rinse your hair with the mixture. Then sit in the sun until your hair dries. Lemon juice is a natural bleach. Don’t forget to put on plenty of sunscreen before you sit out in the sun. To maximize the effect, repeat once daily for up to a week.
