Wash hair with beer
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
Allah Subhanah has forbidden the consumption of all types of intoxicants (wine, beer, etc.) for the believers, men and women.
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 5 Surah Maidah verse 90:
O you who have believed! Khamr (all types of intoxicants), gambling, (ungodly) shrines, and divining devices are all abominable works of Shaitaan; therefore, refrain from these so that you may attain true success!
Everything which is impure is considered haraam in Islam; but not everything that is declared haraam in Islam is necessarily impure. Although some scholars are of the opinion that alcohol is impure, the majority of the scholars are of the opinion that although the consumption of alcohol is forbidden, in its essence, it is not an impure substance.
For example: gold and silk are declared haraam for the believing men, but gold and silk in their essence are not impure substances. Similarly, most of the scholars of Islam are of the opinion that although alcohol is haraam and absolutely forbidden for the believers to consume, alcohol by itself is not an impure substance. Thus there is no harm and no sin if one wishes to use or utilize an alcohol based substance, provided it is not consumed and entered into the body.
Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 1.49 Narrated by An Numan bin Bashir
I heard Allah's Messenger (saws) saying, 'Both legal (halaal) and illegal (haraam) things are evident but in between them there are doubtful (suspicious) things and most of the people have no knowledge about them. So whoever saves himself from these suspicious things saves his religion and his honor. And whoever indulges in these suspicious things is like a shepherd who grazes (his animals) near the Hima (private pasture) of someone else and at any moment he is liable to get in it. (O people!) Beware! Every king has a Hima and the Hima of Allah on the earth is His illegal (forbidden) things.
Because there exists an element of doubt, it would be safest, purest and closest to piety and righteousness that the believers who sincerely fear Allah and the Last Day to substitute the product wherein there is a doubt, and use a product wherein there is absolutely no doubt regarding its permissibility in Islam.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
