This is GREAT! The cucumber acts as a conditioning agent, and the lemon as a cleansing agent, so the two together are like a two in one homemade hair shampoo!


  • Lemons (fresh)
  • Cucumber
  • Olive oil (optional)
  • Rosemary oil (optional)


Blend one fresh peeled lemon with one peeled cucumber in the blender. Pour out into a jug and then mix into your hair, massaging well, rinse thoroughly.
My addition: add a bit of olive or rosemary oil to it and blend the peeled lemon solo first and sieve it before blending it with the cucumber to avoid hard-to-remove lemon flakes in my hair.

*If your hair is a little dry, use more cucumber. If it is a little oily, use more lemon. The two together equal magic!

I've never heard of cucumber as a moisturizer. I want to try this.
