Is your refrigerator full of half finished bottles of champagne after this year’s New Years Eve party? Before you clean out your fridge, put the flat champagne to use as a hair rinse for extra shine and body.
Greer Garson in the 1940’s was known for her vibrant red hair color, which she attributed to her regular Champagne hair rinses. After rinsing her hair with champagne, she would brush her hair 100 times and tie up her hair in a net for the rest of the night.
While we don’t think brushing your hair 100 times is necessary, there is some truth to the cleansing affects of champagne for the hair. In between hair color appointments, advise your clients to try a champagne rinse to rid hair of any product build up and refresh hair color:
How-to Champagne Hair Rinse:
1. Mix one cup of hot water and one cup of champagne in a bowl.
2. Shampoo and condition hair as usual.
3. Pour the hot water and champagne mixture throughout hair – including the underside of hair and the ends.
4. Do not rinse champagne from hair.
5. Pat your hair dry, grab a round brush, and finish with a quality blow out that will leave your hair ultra voluminous and revived.
