I bought a small size of the deva-curl Mister Right, but I just can't stomach spending $18 on a bottle of it every time I run out. But I like how the lavender is used as an antibacterial to keep my scalp clean in between washes.

I read about how lemon is a natural acidic so it can clean my hair. Would it work to put lemon juice, water, and some conditioner and use it as a hair refresher? Or would the lemon just dry my hair out? Im hoping to make something that is comparable to Mister Right in its cleaning factor and refreshing factor, but at home instead of buying it.
