Quick Tip Monday!!!
Lemons have an abundant amount of nourishing benefits which include Vitamin C, Vitamin B6, Vitamin A, Vitamin E, folate, niacin thiamin, riboflavin, pantothenic acid, copper, calcium, iron, magnesium, zinc, potassium, protein, and phosphorus.
There are many ways to use lemons as well as the multiple benefits attached to lemons.
I’ll save all that for another blog .
One way in which I love to use lemons is in my hair. During the winter months the air becomes dryer and less hydrating; It not only effects our skin but our hair may tend to suffer if we’re not giving it a little more TLC then normal.
In the colder climate areas you may be experiencing a case of hard water; which produces calcium and chlorine buildup not only on your dishes, sink, tub and shower curtain (the white residue left behind from the water.) but also in your hair.
In last weeks blog I spoke about using a filter to combat buildup. But if you don’t have a shower filter or are unable to purchase one at this time; there is another thing you could do, which is just as effective, and this is where the lemons come in…
Take a lemon or two depending on hair length and add it to your favorite conditioner and massage it through your hair once you’ve saturated it in water.
Plus your Favorite Conditioner
Let it sit for about a half hour as a deep conditioner and rinse.
The properties from the lemon will not only remove the buildup but it will also help with pH balance as well as give your mane more strength and a healthy shine. I adopted this method from the curly girl handbook by Lorraine Massey and it really works. Try it you won’t be disappointed.
