Amla Oil for Gorgeous Hair

Updated on May 28, 2011

These are both great - but Dabur is my favorite and most of India's favorite Amla oil

Amla is also known as Indian gooseberry. It is one of the oldest hair conditioners used in India and is a natural source of Vitamin C. (We all know how gorgeous and silky Indian hair is!) It is known too have a cooling effect on your hair and help promote its growth rapidly. It also gives hair a rich shine and color and makes your hair very strong. It is such a great conditioner that it also prevents split hair. Believe it or not, it is also said that Amla Oil also prevents premature graying. Amla Oil may also help to reduce dandruff and scalp irritation. Therefore, you can see that Amla is a great natural oil that serves many purposes and nourishes hair in many respects. My mother used in on my hair regularly, and I believe it is one of the reasons that my hair is very thick and long. If you also want rich, beautiful, luxurious hair - I would highly recommend Amla oil!

How do you use Amla Oil?

  1. Get some amla oil onto your finer tips and massage it into your scalp and through your hair daily before going to sleep.
  2. Massage it for 3 - 5 minutes daily or even longer as you wish. It is important to do the massage because it promotes blood circulation and absorption.
  3. Once a week do an Amla oil hair mask. Put some Amla oil on your hair and your scalp and then wrap your hair with a towel or some saran wrap. Leave it for about an hour for best results before washing the oil off.
  4. You may even use Amla oil with Coconut oil - another hair secret of Indian women.

There are many brands of Amla oil being sold, but I would recommend an oil brand that does not use any mineral oils. Try to get the real deal for the best results!

      Tks for this - it's good that you tell people how to use it - the first time I did, I drenched my hair in it and it was awful. The next time I only rubbed it into my scalp and washed it out the next day. My hair became so soft and manageable that I was hooked.
