Once, when I was about 14 or 15, someone told me that beer could give your hair an instant boost, and so I tried it. I wouldn’t recommend you do, though – even if you can get the stickiness out easily enough, dealing with the smell is something else entirely.
I’ve been trying to follow my hairdresser’s advice, but it’s hard. I like washing my hair. It’s an immensely soothing and satisfying experience; and I like the way my hair looks after I’ve washed and dried it. But give it 24 hours and it's gone all lanky again! It’s maddening! And it makes me wonder, seriously: how did people cope in the old days?
