DIY Beer Shampoo St Patricks Day Idea.

Beer shampoo adds body and shine to your hair. You can make your own beer shampoo at home. This shampoo, does not need to be refrigerated. After you’ve tried it, you’ll use it again!
I think this would make a lovely gift to give this coming St Patricks Day

1x can of Beer

1 x standard size bottle of  Shampoo


Source Of Heat


Reduce the beer:

First, you will need to reduce the beer by heating it. Heat the beer in a sauce pan over medium heat until it is approximately ¼ the amount

Let the beer Cool

Let the reduced beer sit in the pan to cool until it reaches a temperature that can be handled easily.

Mix the beer into your shampoo

Once the beer is cooled, pour it into approximately 1 cup of regular shampoo.

Shampoo your hair

You can use your beer shampoo to wash your hair as you normally would, rinsing well.Beer shampoo will add volume and body to your hair. Shampooing with beer daily is a natural way to help hair appear thicker and fuller.

    I used to live in Italy and all the hair stylists used straight beer from the bottle as a final rinse AFTER shampooing. You do not rise out the beer. Smelled pretty bad going on but always left hair wonderfully soft and easy to style. Lots of body and no smell at all once dry.

    Neat recipe. I was just telling a friend that I could swear that my hair was thicker and healthier when I drank more beer way back in my 20’s!

    I don’t see the harm there are so many preservatives in beer and shampoo. Alternatively you could reduce the beer put it in a jar and then add it to your shampoo manually as you use it as to not spoil your shampoo.
