Sounds crazy, but dark beer makes your hair shinier.

Now that fall is upon us, hairstyles are changing. While it’s excusable for your hair to be a bit fried and drab during the summer, hair this fall is all about being shiny, silky and luxurious.

So what makes hair shiny? When the outer layer (cuticle) of the hair shaft lies flat, the even surface can reflect light. Smoothing the outer layer also repels the moisture that causes frizz, which is a major shine inhibitor.

Using moisturizing shampoos and conditioners can actually inhibit the shine of your hair. Excess residue is a major shine assassin, and if you’re using a heavy-duty moisture shampoo/conditioner combo daily, you’re sure to have quite a lot of buildup. To put the shine back in, once a week, try an acidic finishing rinse after you wash your hair. The acids tighten the outer layer of the cuticle, and thus allows light to bounce off the smoothed cuticle giving shine.

How to: wash your hair and then pour the beer on. When you rinse, rinse with cool water not hot.

It will make your hair soft and shiny.

Cheers to shiny locks,

GO with love.

    I suppose drinking the beer wouldn’t hurt either? Maybe we should get together and experiment with this. 😉 #justsayin #GOwithGuinness
