It is necessary to mix one protein, a spoonful of oil, a glass of dark warm beer and a spoonful of honey. The resulting mixture is applied to the hair from the roots.

But negative reviews go to beer hair masks, where a banana is present in the composition. Firstly, according to the reviews, it is very poorly washed out of the hair. Secondly, with a long holding of such masks, the hair acquires a strange and unpleasant aroma, which is difficult to remove.
In addition to using beer-based masks, beauticians and hairdressers advise rinsing your hair with this drink after washing. First, beer makes hair softer and easier to comb. Secondly, many people note that hair becomes shiny and smooth, and the most tangled curls are easier to straighten. Beer is certainly used dark varieties, because it contains more brewer's yeast and malt, which have a beneficial effect on hair without changing its color (which is important for fair-haired girls).
