Discover 6 lemon-based tricks to get the hair you’ve been dreaming of, using very simple ingredients. Of course, for best results, choose organic products.
Lemon is an essential food for the health of the body and hair. Thanks to its antioxidant and antibacterial qualities, lemon regulates the production of sebum on the scalp, making the hair less greasy while limiting the formation of hair dandruff. In addition, this vitamin C-rich fruit helps hair regain its natural shine and cleanses it thoroughly.
Here are the 6 tricks that accelerate your hair growth:
1. Lemon juice + essential oil of garlic
Hair contains keratin, a sulphur-rich protein that strengthens the hair and promotes the structure of the hair fibre. When the hair fibre is damaged or in reduced quantities, garlic is very useful because it contains a high sulphur content that provides intense nourishment to the scalp. In addition, garlic contains vitamin B5, which is also found in keratin and helps promote hair growth.
To make this mask, mix the juice of one lemon and three tablespoons of garlic oil in a bowl. Apply the mixture to the scalp and massage it into the mask. After 15 minutes, rinse your hair with warm water.
2. Lemon juice + argan oil
Argan oil is excellent for hair. Rich in vitamin E and antioxidants, it moisturizes the scalp, protects it against external aggressions and promotes its growth. According to Gina Rivera, hair expert, this is due to the phenols it contains, allowing to clear the hair pores and promote hair growth.
