Macgowan's Guinness Baldness Cure
Hard-drinking THE POGUES star SHANE MACGOWAN has turned to alcohol to make sure he always has a full head of hair - he regularly washes it in Guinness.
The Irish singer insists men losing their hair would be wise to follow the Irish custom of running Guinness through their follicles.
He says, "They sell all those lotions to cure you of baldness... They don't work. There is only one way to cure baldness - you pour Guinness over your head, collect it in a bucket, and drink it in the morning.
"It's proven to work."
And MACGowan refuses to wash his hair when he's not at home in Ireland: "I don't wash it - only in Tipperary water."
