Beer Shampoo for Women (FAQs + the Best Beer Shampoo)

Not only is beer good to drink, but it can also be beneficial for your hair. In this article, we’ll discuss beer shampoo for women, its benefits, how it works, and the best beer-infused shampoos.

Whether you’re looking for a new shampoo to change things up, want to treat dry or thinning hair, or hope to get more volume, we’ve got you covered.

What is beer shampoo?

Beer shampoo is made with beer’s main ingredients: hops, the flowers from the hop plant Humulus lupulus, and barley grain. Hops and barley have nutrients, including protein, Vitamins E and D, zinc, and iron, that can cleanse your hair and support healthy growth. 

Not all shampoos with beer are the same, so selecting products with natural ingredients that work for your hair is important. For example, if you have dry hair, you’ll want a moisturizing shampoo. We also recommend avoiding those with harmful additives and opting for a paraben, silicone, and sulfate-free shampoo.

What does beer shampoo do for your hair?

There are many beer shampoo benefits, including cleansing, strengthening, and hydrating. Beer ingredients can also help treat dandruff, promote natural shine, and reduce frizz.

While beer-infused shampoo likely won’t drastically improve your hair with a few uses, consistent use can be good for your hair and offer a fresh, clean look and feel.

Can women use beer shampoo?

Men, women, and anyone can use beer shampoo. The ingredients are generally safe for all hair types and work well if you're looking for a cleansing shampoo that supports healthy hair.

Can I wash my hair with beer instead of shampoo?

Washing your hair with beer doesn’t offer the same cleansing effects as using a beer-infused shampoo. It’s best to use a product specifically made for washing your hair to ensure it’s properly cleaned while receiving other benefits of beer ingredients, including hydration and shine.

The Best Beer Shampoo for Women

Oakwell Cosmetics Beer Shampoos are ideal for women who want to use a natural product with gentle ingredients. Choose between a moisturizing or strengthening shampoo, depending on your hair type and goals.

All Oakwell Cosmetics products are paraben, silicone, and cruelty-free and don't contain additives or unnecessary ingredients. Although the shampoos are made with beneficial beer ingredients, they don't contain any of the alcohol itself. 

Oakwell Cosmetics Moisturizing Beer Shampoo

Oakwell Cosmetics Strengthening Beer Shampoo

The Strengthening Beer Shampoo is best for hair growth as it treats damaged hair and breakage. This is an excellent option if your hair needs extra love due to environmental conditions, chemical treatments, or heat.

Even if your hair is healthy, the Strengthening Shampoo is good to use because it removes excess oil and dirt, boosts volume and natural shine, and has an amazing aroma of oats, roasted barley, vanilla, and orange.

Ingredients include:

  • Beer - nourish and promote healthy hair
  • Cedarwood - improve scalp circulation and strengthen hair follicles
  • Wheat protein - reduce breakage and improve texture
  • Willow bark - cleanse and remove buildup

How often should I use beer shampoo?

According to the American Academy of Dermatology Association (AAD), you should wash your hair once daily or less frequently, depending on how much oil your scalp produces. For example, if your hair is usually oily, you'll want to wash it daily. If it's moderately oily, you might wash it every other day. If your hair is dry, you can wash it once or twice weekly.

How to choose the right beer shampoo?

Before you buy any shampoo, we recommend checking its ingredients. It’s best to opt for a natural beer shampoo with minimal ingredients. 

Avoid chemicals and preservatives like sulfates, paraben, and synthetic colors and fragrances that can damage your hair.

Beer shampoos with the ingredients below are generally healthy for your hair and can help nourish, strengthen, and cleanse.

  • Hops
  • Barley
  • Amino acids
  • Natural scents like orange and vanilla

We also suggest choosing cruelty-free products to avoid harmful chemicals, reduce environmental footprint, and support animal rights.

Do I need to use conditioner after using beer shampoo?

You should condition your hair after every shampoo to protect your hair and increase shine and strength, according to the AAD. Conditioner can also hydrate your hair after cleansing it with beer shampoo.

If you have oily hair and find that conditioning after every wash weighs it down, you might use conditioner after every other wash. You can also only condition the bottom half of your hair, but not the scalp and top area, where it’s often more oily.

Beer Shampoo for Women: Conclusion

Beer shampoo is an excellent choice for anyone’s hair, including women. It can cleanse, nourish, and hydrate your hair for healthy growth and a look and feel you love!
