Beer is a home remedy for shiny hair. The natural hops and barley found in beer are rich in vitamins and protein that nourish the hair and leave it looking healthier and shinier, and the alcohol in beer cleanses the hair and leaves it softer.
There are beer-based shampoos on the market for those who don't like the idea of pouring a can of beer onto the hair. Otherwise, experts suggest pouring flat beer liberally onto the hair and waiting 3 to 4 minutes before rinsing it out and applying a conditioner. However, using this remedy too often can strip the hair of essential oils.
