4. Secret For Smooth Hair
All those who have seen the latest Beer shampoo in the market must know that it is very good conditioner for the hair. It is also a great way to use leftover flat Belgian or German beer. The malt provides the nourishment and smoothening while the yeast increases hair volume while also strengthening the hair strands.
