Give a final rinse with rose water to remove the smell of beer!

Curly hair has a tough time allowing natural scalp oils to flow to the tip, which is why a regular hot oil massage is a must to indulge in. A hot oil massage would help the hair to bounce back with shine and life, sans the drying effect after a normal hair spa, in a few days. A mix of coconut, olive and almond oils (1tbsp each) when warmed and applied to the hair (root to tip) and kept for an hour- followed by a massage, helps with nourishment, doing away of the frizzy locks, tangles and knots, scalp issues, dryness and more.
