The two ingredient DIY rinse for fuller, shinier hair 29



View Profile

Is your hair feeling limp and thin? You can do this hair rinse at home using just one ingredient from the fridge – it’ll make your hair fuller and shinier, instantly.

you may have heard of people rinsing their hair with Coca Cola, but this method is much better for your hair and proven. It promises softer, shinier, fuller, and more textured hair.

“Because beer is rich in proteins and vitamins, through the natural barley and hops, it does contain nutrients for helping to develop healthy hair,” says Dr. Ryan Welter, a hair restoration surgeon. “Many people have thus seen the benefits of fuller, thicker and more bodied hair through the use of a beer rinse”.

All you need is a beer rich in hops and barley and an egg yolk.

First, boil your beer in a pot then let cool. Mix your egg yolk into the beer and apply to your hair. Wait 5 minutes then all you need to do is rinse it out with cold water. Follow with conditioner as normal and see the results!

  1. Beer rinses have around for decades although I’ve never actually tried it. I might give it a go. Be a bit stinky though wouldn’t it?

  2. I remember in the 60s you could buy beer shampoo. From memory it was in a little orange or brown barrel shaped container. I loved it. There was also a egg shampoo too. Can’t remover the name but I do remember using magi net pump hair spray…best I have ever used…and of course a rinse of a little magic silver white when ever I had streaks. Brings back memories.

    • Victoria Alexandra D’Arienzo It was called Crystal Silver in NZ & yes, left the hair purple sometimes!

    • Robyn there was also Magic Silver Rose too – did you ever try that one (not my fav – could you imagine if I used either now!)

    • Ruth Weston No I was a purple girl. Actually just a few years ago I wore purple blue and pink vibrant hair for about four years. I live in Byron so no one batted an eyelid. Older women and young kids regularly came up to me in the street to say how much they liked it. I loved it too but got too lazy to keep doing it 🙂

  3. Did that years ago when we still used’curlers’ was a good setting agent.

  4. All I have ever used on my hair is ‘Wrights Coal-tar Soap’, no shampoos, no conditioners, no beer. I’m 80 now and still have a full head of hair, which I naturally put down to the Wrights Soap.

  5. Having worked in the brewing industry for 10+ years I’d suggest a basic Kero soap and lots of soft water. If it’s you tibble have a beer as well. B|
