Olive oil and lemon juice mixed together is good for oily hair.  Here are the directions to make a home conconction for oily hair: Add 1 to 3 teaspoons of lemon juice or apple cider vinegar to any one of the following, eggs, plain yogurt, olive oil, castor oil, or jojoba oil. 

So that's it in a nutshell, however, I have provided a source-link below which contain home-preparation shampoos and conditioners and may be something to your likeing.


I'll search, while you wait.

I'm not sure why you want to use lemon juice which is an acid. It may sound odd, but try just plain oil. Lots of kinds will work: olive, avocado, coconut, etc. You might want to check out

The Long Hair Community whether or not you plan on growing out your hair. They have some great ideas on how to really care for your hair. You might be surprised at some of the everyday things you could be doing to fry your hair! 

I agree with Nyssa, Lemon juice contains an acid and it wouldn't be useful for your hair

How do I take the taste of olive oil out of my gravy?

Hi, Mr. B. Good to "hear" you posting. I would never ever use olive oil for gravy either, but evidently it is done. For frying I agree...peanut oil always. It takes a high temp and will brown so nicely. For my taste, butter makes the best tasting gravey.

Can I use olive oil instead of vegetable oil

Yes. But remember olive oil will change the flavour of your cooking, and don't use extra virgin for frying etc. The cheaper pressings are as good but less strongly flavoured.
