Beer for Hair Growth: Here's What You Need to Know

Beer isn’t only for drinking! Many people use beer to promote hair growth, but does it really work? In this article, we’ll discuss the science behind beer for hair growth, the best way to use beer for your hair, and our favorite beer-infused products.

Although there’s no direct evidence that beer can make your hair grow, it does contain ingredients that can support healthy hair growth. Let’s explore how this can work for your hair so you can decide the best hair care for you.

Does drinking beer make hair grow faster?

Beer contains nutrients that are beneficial for healthy hair, but drinking it doesn’t directly make your hair grow. 

According to U.S. News Health, beer is 90% water and contains ingredients that support healthy hair growth, including small amounts of calcium, iron, magnesium, zinc, and copper. Beer also contains B vitamins, which many hair specialists say strengthen and condition hair follicles.

Can I pour beer on my hair?

While pouring beer on your hair likely isn't harmful, we recommend using beer-infused products made specifically for hair care, like washing hair with beer shampoo and using a beer hair mask. This is easier than pouring beer on your hair, and hair products with beer ingredients are specifically designed for use on hair.

Is beer shampoo good for hair growth?

Beer shampoo can support hair growth because it contains ingredients that promote healthy hair. The key is choosing a beer shampoo with natural, non-harmful ingredients. 

Beer is made with hops, the flowers of the Humulus lupulus plant, and barley. Hops contain anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and antimicrobial properties that can nourish hair. Barley has zinc and B vitamins that hydrate and strengthen the hair.

When you use a shampoo infused with these ingredients, you can reap the benefits of beer for your hair, which can support hair growth.

    Using Beer for Hair Loss

    Although beer isn’t a treatment for hair loss, its vitamins and nutrients can help treat problem areas and strengthen your hair and follicles. 

    Using hair products free from harsh chemicals and that have useful ingredients, like hops, barely, and natural oils, can promote healthy hair growth to combat your hair loss. That said, it's best to consult your dermatologist to ensure you're properly treating hair loss. 

    Other Benefits of Beer for Hair

    There are many benefits of using beer shampoo and other products to wash and care for your hair, including the following:

    • Hydrates and reduces frizz - Vitamin B in beer conditions your hair and locks in appropriate moisture for hydrated, smooth hair.
    • Encourages natural shine - Not only does smooth hair appear shiny, but beer helps strengthen your hair causing less breakage, resulting in smooth, shiny hair.
    • Cleanses and enhances volume - Beer shampoos with cleansing properties help remove oil that’s holding your hair down.
