Lemon is a wonder ingredient that has a number of beauty benefits and uses. Lemons are acidic in nature that is beneficial for skin, hair and health and can be a great ingredient to cure dandruff keeping in mind it is used on regular basis. Here are few reasons as to why lemon is effective:
Lemon has acidic pH which is great for the scalp! It helps kill all the unwanted bacteria and fungus on scalp’s surface and also balances the scalp pH. Opportunistic fungus on scalp grows when the pH is disrupted and when lemon is used, it balances the pH thus preventing growth of dandruff-causing fungus and keeping dandruff at bay.
Lemon does a great job in balancing scalp’s pH. As pH is balanced, unwanted bacteria and dandruff-causing yeast (fungus) remains dormant and un-pathogenic hence does not multiply. It also kills the existing bacteria thus eradicating dandruff.
Lemon juice moisturizes the scalp skin and also treats dryness. Dandruff can also be a result of dry weather and dry scalp, lemon juice being a good scalp moisturizer prevents flaking of the skin thus preventing dandruff.
Lemon is rich in citric acid that helps to clarify and detox the scalp. This keeps dandruff at bay and scalp healthy.
