Today, I want to let you know about an amazing hair product – amla oil.

Amla oil

Amla oil is one of the world’s oldest natural hair conditioners. Used widely in India, it turns your hair into a piece of finery that swirls in the air and shines in the sunlight!

Amla oil is made from the Indian gooseberry (or amla). It comes from the Phyllanthaceae family of flowering plants, other members of which also produce fine and precious oils.

Rich in vitamins A and C, it works like a hair pack on your scalp and your hair. It helps fight dandruff, strengthens your hair and aids hair growth – basically it’s a total hair-care must have.

From the moment you apply it to dry hair, you’ll experience a very pleasant fresh sensation, and you’ll quickly feel the benefits of an oxygenated scalp.

How to use it

When I tried it, I gave my hair a thorough soaking with the oil after a good scalp massage. I left it on for 4 hours, although ideally it’s best left on overnight. After the treatment, I shampooed my hair and – hey presto – it had performed its magic.

After just 4 hours, the results are amazing – beautiful, soft, shining hair.
