2 teaspoons Cider Vinegar
1 ounce of flat Beer
5 drops Rosemary essential oil (optional)

BEER RINSE

May 28, 2007


A couple of weeks ago this Dominican lady told me that she used beer to wash out her relaxer. She said that her hair reverted to its natural state after doing this. So, me being the risk taker that I am, I decided to try it. Did I notice a difference? Yes, I noticed more waves, my hair felt like it had more elasticity, but it also felt very coarse. Did it “wash out my relaxer”? NO! My ends are still stick straight. I probably won’t be doing this again.

BUT YOU CAN TRY IT FOR YOURSELF.
HERE’S HOW I DID IT:
I applied flat room temperature beer to my hair left in for a couple of minutes, washed it out and then rinsed twice with Mane N Tail conditioner.

i don't think so. once the chemical is in your hair there's pretty much no turning back. it may look like it wasn't relaxed but it's still there.

Quoted for emphasis.

You can't completely reverse the chemical damage from black hair relaxers. It'd be wiser to do what you can to have your hair grow back healthy.  :)

I call bullsh*t on that article. Beer is for drinking!

No, beer can't wash out a relaxer. Nothing can wash a relaxer out; it's a permenant process. The hair is made up of two bonds; a physical bond and a chemical bond. A relaxer works by breaking down these bonds, thereby making the hair lose it natural shape and elasticity, and you're left with straight hair. But once these bonds are broken, they can never be repaired, so the results are permenant. That's why when someone wants to go natural, they either have to cut the relaxer off all at once or wait a while until some new growth comes in and then eventually cut the relaxed ends off.
