Hair problems are never-ending! As soon as you get rid of one issue, another one crops up! There was a time when I was going through this. No really, I was dealing with hair fall, frizziness and lackluster hair all at the same time. I tried out a number of home remedies to get rid of all these issues. Let me tell you (and get ready to be surprised), beer was what came to my rescue. Ladies, that’s the simplest thing you can do if you’re also dealing with hair problems. 

It was sometime in May or June that I was dealing with an irritated scalp and hair fall. That’s when I started scouting for solutions. While doing my research, I found out about the brilliance of beer. I’m not talking about trying beer shampoo, so leave that thought out.

I am someone who trusts homemade solutions over everything. That means I used beer by preparing DIY hair masks. And guess what? It turned out to be the best solution ever! But before I tell you how to make hair masks with beer, let me tell you why this beer hair mask works.

Here are some of the benefits that you can expect from beer DIY hair masks:
  1. It contains silica, phosphorus, copper, magnesium, iron, and B vitamins that help to hydrate and nourish the hair.
  2. It clarifies the hair colour and gives it a major sheen. 
  3. Beer has various nutrients that can provide your hair with the desired volume and strength. 
  4. Beer has an acidic pH, which can also help in getting rid of an oily and greasy scalp. 
  5. It is a perfect cleansing agent.
  6. Beer closes the hair shaft, which helps to tame frizz. 

And because of all these benefits of beer, my mane has never been in this state! It’s looking gorgeous as ever. So, are you ready to find out all about these masks?
