Beauty DIY: See The Wonders Lemon And Olive Oil Can Do For Your Nails And Hair

Lemon is one important citric family fruit known for its numerous advantages, ranging from culinary uses to health, manufacturing, preservative and beauty purposes. Lemons are a rich source of Vitamin and contain numerous phytochemicals, including polyphenols, terpenes, and tannins, all of which have great health benefits.

Olive oil is also commonly used in cooking, for cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, soaps and many more non-culinary uses. There is limited evidence of its possible health benefits.

These two natural endowments combined together yield great results. They both feature heavily in alternative medicine, healthy dietary staples and general beautification. Together, they offer a potent combination of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and healthy fats.

One of the many uses of Olive and Lemon is growing stronger and healthier nails. If you have weak and fragile nails, mix 1 tablespoon each of lemon and olive oil for 10minutes. Soak fingers in the solution for 2-3minutes. Repeat this routine every night before going to bed and your nails will grow stronger and more beautiful.

Also, with olive oil and lemon, you can make yourself a superb hair solution capable of eliminating dandruff and moisturizing your hair. While the lemon juice has astringent effects, olive oil has moisturizing properties. The citric acid from the lemon penetrates more easily into the scalp, allowing the olive oil to nourish the interior of the hair follicle. Hence, lemon loosens dandruff and the olive oil restores both the skin and the roots of the hair.

All you need do is combine 1 Tablespoon of Olive Oil with Lemon juice. Apply the mixture carefully and gradually to the hair until it is distributed throughout the scalp. Massage from the root to the tips of the hair and leave for about 15 to 30 minutes. Rinse well with shampoo for total removal of the mixture from hair, because the remains of lemon can irritate the scalp. Repeat the process once or twice a week for amazing effects.Photo Credit: Getty
