IF LIFE GIVES YOU LEMONS...MAKE A HAIR RINSE!
Hello lovelies! How was your week? Hopefully great! Today I wanted to share with you a new trick that I tried for my natural hair who helped me a lot.
In the last couple of days I experienced itchy scalp and hair built up, even with freshly washed hair. In that moment I knew that I had to clarify my hair and scalp.
What clarify means? Clarify natural hair is a specific type of hair wash where one removes "buildup". Clarifying essentially strips the hair bare naked, removing all product, minerals (from water, usually hard water), sebum or dirt/grime. Hair in this state is without applied moisture such as from conditioner or leave-ins or oils. Clarifying removes what's on the surface of hair strands, leaving your hair completely clean. As you remember I already shared a tip to clarify afro hair -here- with a natural ingredient.
Today we talk about lemons. Yes, lemons!
Lemon has a high concentration of citric acid that is proven to clarify the scalp and fight dandruff from the roots of the hair follicles.
All I did was adding to 3/4 of warm water 1/4 of fresh lemon juice and leave it on my scalp and hair for 20 minutes. At the end I rinsed it off under warm tap water at first, with a cold rinse at the end.
I instantly felt the "clean hair effect" and shiny hair that I was looking for! I can't believe that was THAT EASY to have natural cleansed hair.
What do you think about it? Did you ever tried the lemon juice rinse?
