When life gives you lemons, make lemonade. Or, instead of quenching your thirst, you could use those lemons to strengthen and improve the health of your hair, stem hair loss, and even help your hair grow.
Those little yellow packages contain a lot of beneficial elements that promote hair health. By applying lemon juice directly to your hair and scalp, you can take advantage of nature’s power in a way that can help you in your fight against thinning hair.
How Lemons Promote Stronger Hair & Potential Hair Growth
Here are the top five reasons you should start squeezing those lemons if you want healthier hair:
- Robust collagen production is essential to hair growth, and vitamin C can help ensure that you have a healthy amount. Lemons contain tons of vitamin C which boosts collagen production.
- Lemons contain many other nutrients that strengthen the hair follicles and encourage new hair growth.
- Naturally acidic, lemon juice can deeply cleanse the scalp and hair follicles, restore healthy pH levels, and remove build-up of product, oils, and pollutants.
- Dandruff, in addition to being annoying and unattractive, can interfere with normal hair growth. Lemons have natural anti-fungal properties that can keep dandruff under control.
- The anti-oxidants and other nutrients present in lemon juice also help to grow hair from even from dormant hair follicles.
How to Use Lemon For Hair Growth
To harness the power of lemons for hair growth, cut a fresh lemon in half and squeeze out the juice from one of the halves. Mix the juice with a little bit of water, apply to the scalp, and gently massage into the scalp and hair for five minutes. Let the juice mixture sit on your scalp for eight to ten more minutes before rinsing it off, shampooing, and conditioning. Repeat once or twice a week.
