Lemongrass cleanses hair gently and with a fresh, clean fragrance.


Lemongrass is an herb used in Thai and Vietnamese cooking that's also god for protecting and strengthening your hair. Make a lemongrass hair rinse using 2-3 teaspoons of dried lemongrass (or 3 times as much fresh herbs) with 1 cup of boiling water.

Let it steep for 15 minutes, strain out the herbs and use it as a hair wash or rinse (before conditioning unless you have oily hair) when it has cooled. Add a teaspoon of vegetable glycerin as a humectant, if you like.


Wow! I am from Asia and we have lots of lemongrass. I didn't know it can do that to hair. Very cool. I suggest that you share this beauty tip at It is a fun site for girls that allow them to share ideas about beauty and fashion.
