Make a hair rinse to get the benefits of hops without the beer.
Hops, a vine whose flowers are used to flavor beer, has cleansing and bodifying properties for hair. Make a hair rinse with 2-3 teaspoons dried herbs (or 3 tablespoons fresh flowers) to 1 cup of boiling water, let it steep for 15 minutes, strain out the herbs and use it as a hair wash or rinse when it has cooled.
If you can only find powdered hops, tie the powder up in a square of old t-shirt or put the herbs in a coffee filter and pour the water over them, let the filter and herbs soak in the water, tied with a rubber band or string. Leave this rinse in your hair.
