Used to restore the hair's natural pH, this recipe will leave you with fresh, shiny hair. This recipe originated in the book Curly Girl.


  • Juice of one lemon, lime, grapefruit, or other citrus
  • Equal amount of your normal conditioner

Combine ingredients, work into the hair, and comb through. Rinse thoroughly as citrus juice can lighten hair in the sunlight.

You can buy pre-squeezed lemon or lime juice at the store if you don't want to squeeze a piece of fruit every time.
