Lemon Juice not only boosts your immunity but also lightens your hair to give you a fresh look. In this article, I am going to show you how lemon juice works to lighten the hair. Lemon Juice works just like a bleach. Bleach oxidises the melanin of your hair depleting your natural hair colour and giving it a lighter appearance instantly.
Lemon juice contains citric acid which acts as a bleaching agent. It absorbs into the hair easily and with the help of UV rays from the sunlight, it accelerates brightening process. It oxidises the melanin of your tresses making the hair look lighter. Citric acid does not work on dark hair because it is a mild bleaching agent.
Some of the benefits of using lemon Juice in hair include;
1. It alleviates various scalp conditions like itchiness, dryness and flaking.
2. It improves the pH of the scalp.
3. It helps clean the scalp and unclog hair follicles hence reducing dandruff.
4. It controls excessive production of oil on your scalp hence maintaining scalp, combat dandruff and scalp acne. If you are planning to dye your hair, use lemon juice as it is safer than chemical bleaches.
