Home Remedies for Hair Growth with Lemon Juice

Lemon juice is enriched with vitamin C, a nutrient essential for healthy, strong hair. It also contains phosphorus and other important minerals that help strengthen hair so that it falls and breaks lesser. Do keep in mind that the remedies mentioned below will take a little time to work and you shouldn't lose patience when utilizing them. Further, while working on growing your hair with lemon juice, keep away from chemically loaded hair styling products and equipment such as hair irons, hair dryers, and hair curlers. Leave your hair alone and let it breathe and come back to life. It is a wait you will definitely be satisfied with. With that said, here's a look into the ways in which you can use lemon juice for hair loss problems and to stimulate hair growth.
  • Lemon Rinse: Take a full bowl of fresh lemon juice, and while in the shower, just rinse your hair with it. Pour it on your head and rub it into your scalp while allowing it to cover your hair too. Let it remain for a minute, and rinse it off with lukewarm water. This method strengthens your hair and clears it of any dandruff, which indirectly causes hair loss, which happens when the scalp is inflamed and itchy, and you start scratching it, thereby weakening the hair root.
  • Aloe Vera and Lemon Mix: Combine three parts of aloe vera gel or juice with one part fresh lemon juice and apply it on your scalp. Allow it to remain on for about ten to fifteen minutes. Wash it off with a mild shampoo. Aloe vera is also a great stimulant for hair growth and combined with lemon will work wonders for it.
  • Egg and Lemon Mask: Add twelve drops of lemon juice to one egg and mix it thoroughly. Apply this mix on your scalp after you have shampooed your hair with a mild shampoo. Let it stay for about 5 minutes after which you may rinse it off. The proteins in eggs will strengthen your hair while the lemon will clear your scalp of any impurities and allow healthy hair growth. Alternately you may use just the egg white and lemon juice to strengthen your hair.
  • Coconut Oil and Lemon Mix: One teaspoon of fresh lemon juice combined with two teaspoons of coconut oil should be massaged into the scalp at least an hour before you wash your hair. This is a very good home remedy to stimulate hair growth.
  • Olive Oil and Lemon Juice: If you find it difficult to find coconut oil you may use olive oil instead and combine with lemon juice and the yolk of one egg. Olive oil nourishes the hair and makes it thicker, the egg gives your hair a beautiful sheen, and the lemon juice cleanses your scalp and provides it the vitamin C, it needs to keep the hair healthy.
  • Amla Oil and Lemon Juice: Another great oil that will work wonders with lemon juice is Amla oil. Combine both in equal parts and massage your scalp thoroughly with the mixture. It stops hair fall and allows hair to grow beautifully.
The reason lemon juice is combined with egg and oils and other such natural moisturizers is because it has the ability to dry out the scalp. If you have an oily scalp you may use lemon juice on its own. However, if you already have a dry scalp, use lemon juice in the aforementioned combinations to make the most of this wonder product. As mentioned earlier, you will notice a difference after you use lemon juice in your hair, as well as watch it grow in a healthy manner, but the process may take some time. Be patient and hang in there. You are sure to benefit from these methods.
