After researching hair remedies online (my hair was feeling a bit dry) I came across an old hair “myth” of sorts, Guinness. Legend has it that Guinness, yes the beer, is good for your mop.
Guinness has barley in it which makes the hair softer and gives your hair a healthier appearance. So hesitantly, I tried it, hey if it’s good enough for Naomi Campbell it’s good enough for me! Robbing a can from my dad’s stash (thanks Richie) I embarked on my hair therapy.
What I’ve learnt :
- Make sure the Guinness is room temperature because otherwise the black stuff is FREEZING in the shower .
- You want to leave the Guinness in your hair as long as possible so exfoliate, shave or daydream!
- I left the Guinness in my hair for about 5-7mins.
- Optional but I used conditioner after washing the Guinness out of my hair because the texture of my hair was quite rough.
My hair did seem softer when I had finished blowdrying it but overall I was disappointed. So my quest for homemade hair treatments goes on but hey Guinness has it’s other uses!
Until next time,
