Beer shampoo anyone? B

EER CAN CLEAR HEAD – OFFICIAL - No longer must too much beer lead to a chap

experiencing a sore head in the morning. Top London salon Bar Hair is pleased to unveil the latest – and almost certainly tastiest hair treatment for the discerning gentleman about town:- real ale. Why beer? You shouldn’t really need to ask. But since you have, there are three main ways this ancient tipple promotes healthy, beautiful-looking hair: 1. It is rich in biotin, a b-vitamin compound that can reducethe chance of hair loss and combat skin disorders like dermatitis

2. The carbon dioxide strengthens the hair and, because beer has a low pH level, tightly closes the cuticle of the hair, giving it a rich, glossy appearance 3. Naturally-occurring astringents in the hops gently tighten the scalp, helping to prevent an oily scalp. Neither does the treatment leave you smelling as if you’ve slept on the barmaid’s apron. Once completed, it is entirely scentless. All you are left with is hair that looks and feels great – no beer goggles required. To experience this revolutionary treatment, or foir further information, call the number below to book your own baptism in beer at Bar 44-46 St. John Street, Clerkenwell, London EC1M 4DFCall: 020 7253 9999.
