My grandmother has stockpiled enough health and beauty products to last decades. She’s never rotated them, and I’m pretty sure I could make a small fortune selling the discontinued stuff on Ebay ;)
In her stockpile, I discovered “Body On Tap”, the most amazing bodyfing shampoo ever! Unfortunately, like many awesome things—Vanilla Cookie Crisp, Marshmallow Krispies, and Pine Bros. cough drops (now available again) come to mind—it was discontinued in the 1980s.
So, after years of mourning the loss of my beloved Body on Tap shampoo, and of using way too many products to achieve a similar, but far too stiff full-bodied look, I decided to take matters into my own hands and create my own homemade Body on Tap shampoo recipe.
Really, how hard can it be to mix beer and shampoo?
Here’s my homemade Body on Tap shampoo recipe! I get more body and shine from this homemade Body on Tap shampoo than I ever have from the salon products I’ve tried.
1 cup beer
(use the classy stuff, I like leftovers, or Black Label 40’s; flat is OK)1 cup shampoo
(I like V05 because it’s cheap, and not tested on animals)an empty bottle
(I reused one from my Trader Joe’s conditioner)
Bring the beer to a boil in a small pan over medium heat. Boil it uncovered until it’s reduced to 1/4 cup.
Whisk the shampoo into the reduced beer.
Voila! Instant body :)
