Amla powder is one of the leading hair growth herbs helping you to achieve longer hair naturally. This herb also helps maintain curls, adds volume to hair and helps to reduce some of the brightness of henna hair dye. Amla can also be used on its own or with other Ayurvedic herbs to create hair masks and treatments. For all hair types and textures.
THE INSIDE SCOOP
A staple must have herb for longer, stronger, beautiful hair. Gives hair and curls that natural bounce and volume. Can be used in henna hair coloring, and Ayurvedic hair care masks and treatments. Often used in facial masks as this herb is a natural astringent. Try it with honey!
When used with henna or to create a hair mask or treatment, add 2-3 tbsp of amla powder for every 100 grams used. Add warm water or a liquid of your choice to the recipe and mix well. Prewash your hair using one of our hair washes or shampoo bars. On damp hair strands, apply to hair by sections. When used as a hair mask or deep conditioning treatment leave in hair for 1-2 hours. For use with henna hair dyeing, leave it in your hair for 3-4 hours. Rinse out well with our cleansing cowash for best results. Moisturize, dry and style as usual.
You can use amla powder and mix it with conditioner, yoghurt, hair butters or other Ayurvedic herbs as a hair mask or deep conditioning treatment.
Storage: We recommend you store all Ayurvedic herbs in a cool dark place, fridge or freezer and away from moisture. When you mix amla powder into a paste, you can store it in the freezer for up to 6 months and use it later by thawing it.
Since Amla is so high in vitamin C, it also naturally is an amazing face mask that naturally brightens the skin and tones it.
