On Late Night With Seth Meyers Thursday, actress and model Priyanka Chopra Jonas broke down an interesting at-home hair treatment method used by her mother and her mother’s friends when she was a kid. And it’s one that involves none other than beer and eggs.

Meyers asked the Matrix Resurrections star to explain what it is and where she learned it from, and Chopra Jonas was happy to oblige.

“A​​apparently, beer and eggs, which my mom used to do when I was growing up in her hair, and she'd leave it as a conditioner,” Chopra Jonas said. “And apparently it's really good for you. It helps with hair growth. And it stinks to high heaven, but when she shampoos it, it's alright.”

Chopra Jonas said that her mother claimed it was a common tradition in India, where she was born, and she saw her mother’s friends putting it in their hair as well.

And as the winner of the Miss World 2000 pageant when she was younger and someone who clearly knows a thing or two about beauty, Meyers was willing to explore the odd concoction a bit further, asking Chopra Jonas how it’s put together. She said the “not so complicated” process involves just mixing the eggs, pouring the beer in, and then trying not to get it everywhere while applying it. But that didn’t stop the host from suggesting that she was “pranking” him.

“Google it!” Chopra Jonas said. “I promise you, Google it.”
