In case you haven't noticed, I am a wee bit obsessed with my hair. I test A LOT of different hair products. What you may not know is that I also try a lot of new hair techniques and hair tools. I don't write about those things a lot, but I am always buying and trying ALL OF THE THINGS for my hair. You see, it is an obsession. While a lot of what I try satisfies me at the moment for things like manageability, controlling frizz and shine, I am always on the hunt for more, especially more shine.
Whether it is all of the products or tools that I use, my hair just seems to have this overall dull appearance; it lacks shine. I remember that when I was a teenager, my mother used to have me rinse my hair in beer. I had long, straight hair that went down to my waist. She read that rinsing hair in beer would give it shine. It did. I rinsed my hair in beer for years, until I went to college and couldn't buy it on my own. :) When I was approached by the newer hair care brand BRÖÖ that is made with craft beer, I knew that I had to try it to see if I could get some of that shine back in my hair. Does BRÖÖ Hair Care give me the shine that a beer rinse does? The quick answer is yes. Let me tell you why.
BRÖÖ Shampoo and Conditioner is made with a perfect balance of microbrewed beer plus premium natural ingredients. You see, barley and hops are naturally full of B vitamins, proteins and minerals that the hair naturally LOVES! Thanks to the brands' innovative BRÖÖLuxe formula which is a natural alternative to silicone, hair is detoxed. And to be frank, that is just the beginning. There are three different formulas, and they are all infused with BRÖÖLuxe plus ingredients that make the formulas perform. I've tried all three formulas, and I am telling you, my hair has not been as shiny in YEARS.
The three formulas include a Thickening Craft Beer Shampoo and Conditioner, Moisturizing Craft Beer Shampoo and Conditioner and Invigorating Craft Beer Shampoo and Conditioner.
Thickening Craft Beer Shampoo and Conditioner
Mixed with malted barley, hops flower, barley protein, caffeine and BRÖÖLuxe, this weightless thickening formula stimulates hair follicles to give it volume and shine. The citrus crème scent (made with orange, grapefruit and vanilla crème) is DIVINE.
Moisturizing Craft Beer Shampoo and Conditioner
Mixed with malted barley, hops flowers, shea butter, caffeine, and BRÖÖLuxe, this all-malt freshly hopped craft beer and shea butter formula give dry hair a ton of moisture. The hop flower scent is intoxicating — it does not smell like beer — this has notes of lavender, geranium and ylang-ylang, too.
Invigorating Craft Beer Shampoo and Conditioner
Mixed with malted barley, hops flowers, peppermint, caffeine and BRÖÖLuxe, you will feel the invigorating buzz of this hair stimulating formula. My husband loves this duo and the malted mint scent with notes of mint, geranium and rosemary.
I have been alternating between the Thickening and Moisturizing formulas since I received BRÖÖ Hair Care and as I said, my hair is indeed shinier. I noticed the shine right away, and the overall dullness of my hairs appearance is fading.
I usually seek out hydrating moisturizing hair formulas, so I initially reached for the Moisturizing Craft Beer Shampoo and Conditioner, but the scent of the Thickening Craft Beer Shampoo and Conditioner has won me over. Don't get me wrong, the moisturizing blend with shea butter did a great job to help hydrate my thirsty hair, but I am a sucker for a vanilla orange scent like the natural scent in the thickening formula. Plus, my fine hair can use all the help it can get and shine, and strength is something my hair needs as well.
A few more things to love about BRÖÖ beside giving me back my shine: All of BRÖÖ products are made in the USA — yay! Plus every product is all-natural and free of parabens, phthalates, dyes, synthetic fragrances, PEGs, polyquaterniums, phenoxyethanol and propylene glycol.
You can find BRÖÖ Hair Care at Walmart. Each product has an SRP of $7.49.
