The main purpose of this study is to make Shampoo out of

Beer, Sunflower and Coconut oils. We thought on how they can


improve the strength of the hair without the Beer-like smell. We
suspected that the Barley in Beers and the oils of Sunflower and
Coconuts could make our hair strong and smooth.

To determine if the statement is true, we used a set of simple


experiments
.
We first made the product by boiling the beer until half of it is
remained. Then we heated the Sunflower seeds and mash it to
release its oils. The Coconut milk is also heated to release its oils.
The next is the Honey shampoo. We combined honey, olive oil and
some perfumes in a bowl. After that, we combined the two mixtures
together and put it in a container.

The experiment is presented to 5 respondents for the


following tests:
• Bubble test
• Odor test
• Hair’s smoothness test
• Hair’s softness test

The results are the following:


• Bubble test: Good
• Odor test: Good
• Hair smoothness test: Very good
• Hair softness test: Very Good

We also test the product in two different persons but have the
same type of hair. The first lady used the experimented shampoo on
her hair while the other one used the common shampoo.

The person who used the experimented shampoo after three


days seems to have an invigorating effect on her hair while the hair
of the other lady is still like on the first day that the observation in
given; giving is a conclusion that the experiment works.

This experiment can give a strong impact in the society


especially in the people who are poor because the ingredients used
in the experiment were not expensive as the shampoos in our
community.

However, this investigatory project is not yet approved by


specialists and needs further study to prove that the product really
works.
Besides getting compliments on your luscious locks from
beer goggle-wearing guys in bars, there might be much more that
beer can do for the well-being of your hair. As we discovered with
the effects of beer on skin, there are special components within
beer that are better for your body than any old carbonated
beverage. When you soak, rinse, or sprits your hair with beer, its
natural ingredients coat each strand and lend hair-nourishing
benefits. In addition to B vitamins, the proteins found in malt and
hops are said to repair damaged hair and boost overall body.
Meanwhile, the maltose and sucrose sugars in beer tighten the
hair’s cuticles for enhanced shine.

Although it is debatable whether the corn, rice, or wheat


protein in beer can actually deposit on your hair to form a
strengthening film, there is no question that it makes hair seem
thicker. This effect may be attributed to the proteins left on the hair
fiber, though beer also seems to slightly swell the hair shaft.

Coconut oil is one of the best natural nutrition for hair. It


helps in healthy growth of hair providing them a shiny complexion.
Regular massage of the head with coconut oil ensures that your
scalp is free of dandruff, lice, and lice eggs, even if your scalp is dry.
Coconut oil is extensively used in the Indian sub-continent for hair
care. It is an excellent conditioner and helps in the re-growth of
damaged hair. It also provides the essential proteins required for
nourishing damaged hair. It is therefore used as hair care oil and
used in manufacturing various conditioners, and dandruff relief
creams. Coconut oil is normally applied topically for hair care.

Sunflower oil actually has the highest concentration of


vitamin E of all the vegetable oils. Vitamin E is an encompassing
name for a group of fat-soluble complexes with powerful antioxidant
properties, which help to protect cells from free radicals, or cancer
causing radicals in the body. Vitamin E is also an anti-inflammatory,
thereby making it a healthy and natural part of your daily diet and it
will help prevent infection and disease progression as well.

Previously published results showed that both in vitro and in


vivo coconut oil (CNO) treatments prevented combing damage of
various hair types. Using the same methodology, an attempt was
made to study the properties of mineral oil and sunflower oil on hair.
Mineral oil (MO) was selected because it is extensively used in hair
oil formulations in India, because it is non-greasy in nature, and
because it is cheaper than vegetable oils like coconut and sunflower
oils. The study was extended to sunflower oil (SFO) because it is
the second most utilized base oil in the hair oil industry on account
of its non-freezing property and its odorlessness at ambient
temperature. As the aim was to cover different treatments, and the
effect of these treatments on various hair types using the above
oils, the number of experiments to be conducted was a very high
number and a technique termed as the Taguchi Design of
Experimentation was used. The findings clearly indicate the strong
impact that coconut oil application has to hair as compared to
application of both sunflower and mineral oils. Among three oils,
coconut oil was the only oil found to reduce the protein loss
remarkably for both undamaged and damaged hair when used as a
pre-wash and post-wash grooming product. Both sunflower and
mineral oils do not help at all in reducing the protein loss from hair.
This difference in results could arise from the composition of each of
these oils. Coconut oil, being a triglyceride of lauric acid (principal
fatty acid), has a high affinity for hair proteins and, because of its
low molecular weight and straight linear chain, is able to penetrate
inside the hair shaft. Mineral oil, being a hydrocarbon, has no
affinity for proteins and therefore is not able to penetrate and yield
better results. In the case of sunflower oil, although it is a
triglyceride of linoleic acid, because of its bulky structure due to the
presence of double bonds, it does not penetrate the fiber,
consequently resulting in no favorable impact on protein loss.
Any of 60 species of annual herbaceous plants in the genus
Helianthus (composite family), native mostly to North and South
America.

The common sunflower (H. annuus) has a rough, hairy stem 3–


15 ft (1–4.5 m) high; broad, coarsely toothed, rough leaves 3–12 in.
(7.5–30 cm) long; and large (3–6 in., or 7.5–15 cm, in diameter), flat,
plate-like compound flowers. Disk flowers swirl in a tight brown,
yellow, or purple spiral; ray flowers are yellow. The leaves are used
as fodder, the flowers yield a yellow dye, and the seeds contain oil
and are used for food. The oil is used for cooking, as an ingredient of
soaps and paints, and as a lubricant. Only a few species are
cultivated, some for their spectacular size.

Alcoholic beverage made usually from malted barley,


flavoured with hops, and brewed by slow fermentation.

Known from ancient times, beer was especially common in


northern climates not conducive to grape cultivation for wine. It is
produced by employing either a bottom-fermenting yeast, which
falls to the bottom of the container when fermentation is completed,
or a top-fermenting yeast, which rises to the surface. Lager beers
(from lagern, “to store”), of German origin, are bottom-fermented
and stored at a low temperature for several months; most are light
in colour, with high carbonation, medium hop flavor, and alcohol
content of 3–5% by volume. Top-fermented beers, popular in Britain,
include ale, stout, and porter; they are characterized by a prominent
head of released carbon dioxide, a sharper and more strongly
hopped flavour than lagers, and an alcohol content of 4–6.5% by
volume.

Barley is a cereal plant of the genus Hordeum, in the family


Poaceae (or Gramineae), and its edible grain.

The three cultivated species are H. vulgare, H. distichum, and


H. irregulare. Barley is adaptable to a greater range of climate than
any other cereal. About half of the world's crop is used as livestock
feed, the rest for human food and for malting. Most beer is made
from malted barley, which is also used in distilled beverages (see
malt). Barley has a nutlike flavour and is high in carbohydrates, with
moderate quantities of protein, calcium, and phosphorus.

Coconut oil is extracted from the meat. The nutritious liquid


“milk” at the centre may be drunk directly from the nut. The husk
provides coir, a fibre highly resistant to salt water that is used in the
manufacture of ropes, mats, baskets, brushes, and brooms. The
nutshells are used as containers and often decoratively carved.

Whether the flakes are caused by dry scalp, or a fungal/yeast


condition like seborrheic dermatitis, coconut oil will help, because
it's a great moisturizer, and its anti-fungal substances
• 3/4 cup of Beer
• 1 cup of Sunflower seeds
• ½ kilo of Coconut milk
• 1/8 cup of Honey
• 1/8 cup of Olive oil
• Perfume
• ¼ cup Castile soap
• ¼ cup Distilled water (Optional)

• Medium Casserole
• Bottles
• Mixing Bowls
• Large spoons

For our experiment, we used the Beer as our main


ingredient. We boil the ¾ cups of Beer until ¼ of it is remained. We
mash the 1 cup of the Sunflower seeds to release its oil. We also
heated ½ kilo of the Coconut milk for few minutes to have its oils.
Set aside.

For the honey shampoo, just combine the ingredients of it in a


mixing bowl.

Just combine the Beer mixture and the Shampoo mixture and
put in a plastic bottle.
The test is scales from 1-10. 10 for excellent and 1 for poor.

Based on the results made, the product


is acceptable and thus can be use without
harming effects.
The hypothesis therefore is true that
Sunflowers, Beers and Coconut can be
used as a Shampoo for a soft and
smoother hair. Base on the respondents,
the experimented product created would
be essential for the growth of our
community for it can easily be found in
our area.

This gave us a conclusion that the


beer, the main ingredient for the product
can be made as a shampoo.
We therefore, recommend this
product for further studies to improve its
quality and to use more appropriate
equipments. We suggest this product for
it can help in improving our economy.
Also some ingredients may be added to
improve it or it can be exchanged for
another essential ingredient to make the
product much better.
