What You Need
- 2 – 3 lemons
- 1 cup of warm water
What You Need To Do
- Cut each of the lemons and prepare a cup of lemon juice.
- Strain the juice into a bowl using a muslin cloth, and mix it with the warm water.
- After you have washed your hair in the bath, gently pour the mixture over your scalp, massaging it into your scalp at the same time.
- Leave the mixture on your hair for about five minutes, and then wash it off with cool water.
When You Need To Do This
In the morning, after a bath. Do this once or twice a week.
Why This Works
Lemons are excellent astringents. They tighten the pores in your scalp, thereby controlling hair fall. If you have oily hair, a lemon juice rinse is what you can try out.
Lemons also contain alpha-hydroxy acids that exfoliate dead cells, eliminating dandruff in the process. Lemons are rich in vitamin C, an essential nutrient that helps maintain hair health.
Despite being safe, lemons contain acids. Hence, close your eyes as you pour the mixture over your head. Also, remember not to use the lemon juice remedy too frequently or for a long duration; it can dry out your hair.
