Lime provides a boost of vitamin C, antioxidants, and citric acid that can strengthen hair, improve shine, and support healthy growth. But what’s the best way to use lime to harness its benefits for your hair?
How to Use Lime for Hair Growth
To use lime for optimal hair growth, drink freshly squeezed lime juice daily, include lime zest and juice when cooking, and rinse your hair with lime juice diluted in water 2-3 times per week after shampooing.
Drink Fresh Lime Juice
Drink a glass of freshly squeezed lime juice daily to get vitamin C and citric acid internally.
Add Lime When Cooking
Use lime zest and juice liberally when cooking to incorporate benefits into meals.
Rinse Hair with Diluted Lime Juice
After shampooing, rinse hair with a lime juice and water mixture.
Benefits of Lime for HairHere are some of the key benefits limes provide for healthy hair:
High in Vitamin C
Vitamin C aids collagen production for strong strands and healthy growth.
Antioxidants combat free radicals that damage hair follicles.
Rich in Citric Acid
Citric acid cleanses away dirt, debris and excess oil from the scalp.
Lime helps maintain the scalp’s ideal mildly acidic pH balance.
Citric acid removes residue so hair reflects more light.
Tips for Using Lime for HairFollow these tips when using lime for optimal hair health:
Use Fresh Lime
Bottled juice loses vitamin C content over time.
Avoid Getting Lime in Eyes
The citric acid can cause stinging and irritation.
Dilute Lime Juice for Rinses
Start with a 1:2 juice to water ratio until your scalp adjusts.
Rinse Out Completely
Don’t leave lime juice on long term as the acidity could dry hair.
Store Lime Juice in the Fridge
Refrigeration preserves the vitamin C content.
Other Uses for LimeLime can also boost hair growth by:

Combine with avocado, olive oil and honey.
Taking as a Supplement
Look for vitamin C supplements derived from lime.
