6. Stops Dandruff

If you have embarrassing dandruff or an itchy scalp, use lemon juice to stop it! Lemon juice will help to balance the pH of your scalp, reduce oil output, and stop the fungus that causes dandruff dead in its tracks.

Mix the juice from 2 lemons into 1 cup of water. Shampoo as you normally would, then rinse your hair with the water/lemon solution. Wait 5 minutes, and then rinse with plain water. Repeat once or twice a week for best results.

Be careful going out in the sun on the days when you use the lemon juice rinse as it can seriously lighten your hair.

Lemons can be a big help here as they exfoliate the dead skin cells to make your lips soft and kissable again. Rub a lemon slice over your lips and wait one minute.
