How this Hair rinse works?

Green Tea which is power packed with anti-oxidants help to exfoliate the scalp to get rid of stubborn flaky dandruff. A strong brewed green tea alone can also give you the same results in wiping out the dandruff within one wash. As green tea has antiseptic properties it also helps in treating the itchy scalp conditions and is a big savior for dry scalp people. It brings back the lost natural oils to your hair and makes it more shiny and healthy.

Lemon‘s acidity helps balance your pH of your scalp and keeps dandruff at bay. This simple ingredient helps you treat flaky dandruff in the most effective and inexpensive way. Always remember to use lemon in a diluted form, especially those who have sensitive scalp. Lemon helps to remove all the dirt and grim that was accumulated on your scalp due to pollution which is the main reason of itchy and unhealthy scalp.  It is a great remedy to follow for those who have oily scalp as lemon’s acidic property helps to balance the natural oil secretion of your scalp without actually drying it.
