The lemon’s acidity will take care of any loose dandruff and flakes while also dislodging tough to remove scabs on scalp, while the olive oil will take care of moisturizing the area preventing the further occurrence of such which is really due to dry scalp.

Mix two parts lemon juice, two parts olive oil, and two parts water into a mixture and place directly on the scalp, massaging it thoroughly so that it will be absorbed by the hair and the scalp fully. Leave on for thirty minutes and shampoo thoroughly afterwards. The process can be repeated every other week for best results.

Oily Hair

For oily hair, fill out an empty salt or pepper shaker full of cornmeal and shake all the contents into the head, making sure it reaches the scalp and other hard to reach areas. Leave on for ten minutes or until the oil in the scalp has been thoroughly absorbed by the flakes, brush it all off afterwards. Process could be repeated every other day until the oil in the scalp normalizes.

Sun Damaged Hair

Massage in half a cup of honey into the head making sure it reaches the scalp. Wait for twenty minutes, rinse with warm water and shampoo thoroughly. You can mix in a tablespoon of olive oil into the honey if you are having problems with removing the honey from your head.
