As already mentioned, the lemon oil on the hair acts as a good clarifier, not only preserving their natural structure, but also giving the new shade an amazing saturation and brightness, allowing to shimmer and sparkle in the sun with platinum shine. To do this, add a couple of drops of ethereal lemon oil in hair care products. But, it must be remembered that in its pure form it can not be left on the hair for more than an hour, since the extract from the lemon can contribute to the appearance of a severe burn on the head. The principle of "less and more often" in this case will be the only correct one, so the mask should be kept on the head for about 30-40 minutes - then it will lighten and preserve its natural structure, and most importantly, its pigment. To take a great interest in use of a lemon juice it is not necessary, not to overdry the scalp.
