3 lemon-based DIY cures for dandruff

 3 lemon-based DIY cures for dandruff

 Alright, so we all know that the small round, tarty, yellow fruit—lemon— is as versatile as it is powerful. More so, ever since one can recall, lemon has been a time-tested cure for dandruff. Effective, safe and inexpensive, the citric acid in its juice helps restore the normal pH balance of the scalp, which in turn, helps in restraining an overgrowth of the dandruff on the scalp. What’s more, the astringent effect of lemon juice balances out the sebum level of the scalp, preventing it from becoming itchy, excessively greasy or dry and thereby eliminating dandruff. But you knew that already. So here are three lemon-based DIY remedies for dandruff:

1. Lemon and honey

The combination of lemon and honey not only soothes a sore throat but  soothes, moisturises and nourishes an itchy scalp. Mix two tablespoons of lemon juice with two tablespoons of honey. Apply the mixture to the scalp. Leave it on your scalp for 30 minutes and then wash it off with a mild shampoo.

2.Lemon and aloe vera gel

Mix a tablespoon of lemon juice with a tablespoon of aloe vera gel. Aloe vera is a natural moisturing agent, which also helps in suppressing fungal growth on the scalp. Apply the mixture to your scalp and wait for 30 minutes. Wash your hair with mild shampoo.

3. Lemon and oil

Mix two tablespoons of freshly squeezed lime juice with three to four tablespoons of tepid oil (pick your favourite: coconut, almond, argan or olive). Drench your scalp and hair with this concoction. Wrap your head with a warm damp towel. Wait an hour before you wash your mane with mild shampoo.
