Orange juice is great to drink in the morning because it’s an antioxidant and the vitamin C in an orange, specifically in orange as a juice, works to protect human cells from oxidation by free radicals.
It’s time we abandon hair products with chemical preparations and return to nature. Orange juice can go a long way in helping your hair look beautiful. Used as a juice rinse, it’s a tonic for when the humidity is low and the moisture content of your hair is also very low. There are many benefits for the hair that this citrusy juice provides. Like most citrus fruits, oranges are a rich source of vitamin C, and thus the vitamin helps in keeping the scalp clean, which in turn leads to hair growth.
Orange juice contains the B vitamin folic acid, which is vital to hair growth. It also contains insonitol, another B vitamin, which stimulates hair growth and prevents hair loss.
An orange juice rinse goes a long way for the care of your hair. To make a juice rinse, add ¼ cup freshly squeezed oranges to 1 teaspoon of lemon juice and 1 cup of water. Mix well, gently massage into scalp and hair and let sit for about ten minutes.
Lemon juice is known for being used by women for centuries to beautify their hair. As yet another natural remedy, it works to curb the most common poor hair health problems. Its citric acid helps to remove hair care buildup and aids in flattening the cuticles—the outer layer of hair—allowing hair to shine. The astringent of lemon removes excess oil from hair, and is great for oily hair and scalp. In addition, because lemon contains alpha hydroxy acids, it exfoliates dead cells, keeping irritated or dandruff-filled hair clean.
Don’t shy away from it. Women across the world—women who no longer need to find a shampoo or conditioner that doesn’t cause product buildup, resulting in damaging their hair—opt to use natural products, and lemon juice, of course, is one of them, a hair care routine to maximize scalp and hair health.
Use a lemon juice rinse on your scalp. When you massage the rinse, the juice will work to get rid of dandruff and aid in removing all that scalp buildup that clogs the scalp, which leads, as we know, to hair fall.
To use a lemon rinse on hair, mix 1/4 cup of lemon or lime juice to 2 cups of warm water, strain the mixture and apply to hair after shampooing. Let sit for around 5 minutes and then rinse with warm water. A perfect tonic. Just don’t overdo it as lemon juice can lighten your hair color. To use a lemon rinse for dandruff, warm olive oil and add to 1-2 tablespoons of lemon or lime juice. Massage into scalp and let it sit for an hour before you wash it out.
