Wash your hair in beer, says supermodel
22nd April, 2014 by Lauren Eads
Australian supermodel Elle Macpherson has revealed one of her most unusual beauty treatments used to keep her locks gleaming – a healthy dose of beer.
The 50-year-old beauty told Yours Magazine that she regularly douses her long locks with beer to “keep it shiny”, a trick passed down from her mum.
The old-fashioned hair treatment apparently works by leaving a residue of hops and barley from the beer in hair as it dries giving it a coating which is supposed to give hair more body and weight.
However if taking up the unusual treatment one should be wary of ending up smelling like a brewery.
The supermodel, known as ‘the body’ after her appearances in Sports Illustrated from the 1980’s onwards, has since built an empire featuring her own lingerie line, Elle Macpherson Intimates and a line of skincare products.
