Beer Shampoo

Beer Shampoo

This shampoo will leave your hair full of shine and body.

What you need

1 cup of Beer
1 cup of simple shampoo


You can use any beer for this one, even the leftover dregs at the end of a party.

Use a basic shampoo, not something full of chemicals and other additives. Just keep it simple.

Reduce the beer down by simmering it in a pan for 20 mins or until reduced.

Let it cool to room temperature and add it to your shampoo.

You can pour this straight into a recycled shampoo bottle or for fun pour it into a beer bottle and secure with a cork or bottle top.

Looking for a herbal shampoo? Check out our DIY recipe for making your own natural herbal shampoo with basic supplies. We also have a herbal conditioner recipe too.  Home-made shampoos and conditioners are a great way to strip back to basics and control what herbs you are putting into your hair shampoo and products. Store-bought herbal shampoo contains lots of numbers and ingredients that as the consumer we know very little about.


  1. just use near beer if being caught with alcohol is an issue, it has all of the same stuff.
    i used to do this, but without the shampoo all the time when i was 16.
    i would just pour a can of o’doul’s into my hair after shampooing and let it dry, then rinse it.
    the beer smell only stays for about 30 minutes and if it’s a problem use some other scented hair product.
    it works and is worth the smell =]

  2. Haven’t tried it yet but it sure sounds good.


  3. Sounds good, im gonna use it tonight. Does it work?

  4. fun fun fun feels good!

  5. Pretty good idea BUT I don’t think I would want my hair to smell like beer I like to go out and party every once and a while but I’m not THAT big of a party animal. Thumbs up for the idea but thumbs down for my use. :-)Laters(-:

  6. I’m sure that this works but how in the world am I supposed to get beer from my parents? Also, after you use this, won’t your hair smell like beer? Peaple would just love that in school!
