Bottoms Up1 of 11
By Natasha Burton
With Oktoberfest in full swing, many of us have beer on the brain—or maybe even in a glass right in front of us. But beer isn't just for drinking: The hoppy beverage has been used as a remedy for afflictions like frizzy hair and limp locks. We found ten products—some effective and others just plain fun—that put beer's ingredients to good use. Cheers!
Balms Away2 of 11
Created by Glynne's Soaps of Wilmington, N.C., these soothing lip balms are infused with beers from North Carolina-based Front Street Brewery. With Scottish Ale and Riptide Raspberry Wheat on your lips, you'll be extra kissable—especially to a lager lover.

Va-Va-Va Volume3 of 11
With its blend of olive oil, cognac oil and beer, this hair-smoothing elixir keeps frizz at bay. Work into dry hair, leave on for 20 minutes (hey, maybe have a beer while you wait?), then wash out for a tamed mane.

Avoid razor burn with this unisex shaving soap that will keep your legs—and your man's face—smooth. Made in Ohio, the soap combines Sierra Nevada stout beer with olive oil, organic coconut oil, organic shea butter and other natural, moisturizing ingredients.

Smell Me, Maybe?5 of 11
Don't worry, you won't reek of a sticky bar after spritzing on this rich scent. In fact, with its blend of pumpkin, dark patchouli, oak resin, spice and beer, this perfume smells good enough to drink—not that we recommend it.

Goes Down Smooth8 of 11
Along with acai berry extract, jojoba and aloe, this vegan conditioner uses extra bitter beer—which contains more mineral-rich hops—to provide your locks with extra nutrients.

Lager Locks9 of 11
Designed for men, this cleansing shampoo uses beer's antioxidant qualities to get rid of buildup and dandruff. And with its blend of malt, brewer's yeast and orange zest, we imagine it smells much like a freshly poured glass of Blue Moon (we doubt your guy will complain).

American Ale10 of 11
With more than 100 varieties available, there's something for every beer lover within the Beer Soap Co.'s array of ale-infused soaps. But we're partial to the all-American one made with good ol' Budweiser. (Perfect for lathering up on game day, no?)
