Apply on your scalp some lemon juice and wash your hair immediately after that with a good shampoo. Make sure that you dry your hair fully before tying them in a bun or pony. Do not leave a hair cream or gel in your hair for more than a few hours. Wash it clean from your hair as soon as you get home.
