Your Guide to Using Natural Amla Hair Oil for Hair Growth and Strength

The herb Emblica Officinalis, better known as Amla or Indian gooseberry, is the name of a highly potent Ayurvedic herb known for its medicinal properties, a superfood, natural immune booster, detoxifier, skin rejuvenator, and an ingredient most synonymous with hair care.

Amla oil, derived from the fruit, is a powerhouse of antioxidants. Ayurveda recommends it as a great solution for a myriad of hair care woes. The oil contains many phenolic phytochemicals, including flavonoids, anthocyanins, as well as vitamin C and A. In this article, we look at various ways of incorporating Amla oil into your haircare routine.

Here’s what you can try to Boost Hair Growth and Strength:

You can use our Amla hair oil in a variety of ways. Here are some:

1. Hair massage

Amla oil can help improve your hair appearance and reduce hair breakage. For a revitalizing hair massage, follow these steps:

  • Put a few drops of Amla oil onto your palm.
  • Massage it into your scalp and hair and cover your head with a shower cap.
  • Allow it to sit for 15 minutes.
  • Then rinse it off with a mild shampoo.
  • Voilà!

2. Pre-shampoo treatment

To double for an intensive pre-shampoo scalp massage, warm the oil between your palms and gently massage the scalp. Finally, add a few drops to your hair's ends by scrunching and lightly dabbing them. You may choose to omit the scalp massage and apply just lightly to the ends of your hair for gentle conditioning.

3. Styling serum

To use it as a styling serum, take a few drops of the oil and gently run it through your hair for added luster and hydration. This technique can help prevent split ends and prevent moisture loss.

4. Pre-wash detangler

For a pre-wash detangler, prep unwashed hair by applying the oil before shampoo. Work the oil through your hair while using its hydrating properties to detangle it. Activate the oil with a hair dryer for a few seconds before shampooing if you do not have time to let it sit in your hair.

Benefits of Amla Hair Oil

Here are some of the benefits of Amla oil for hair:

  • Hair growth: Amla packs a lot of goodness, such as antioxidants and vitamins that promote hair growth. Vitamin C in Amla helps increase collagen and makes your hair grow longer and thicker.
  • Slows down greying: Greying is a condition associated with excessive pitta or heat, one of the doshas, in the body, according to Ayurveda. Amla cools the body and slows the greying process. The regular application of Amla hair oil is highly beneficial in preventing greying.
  • Treats dandruff: Applying Amla hair oil hydrates the scalp and reduces dandruff. The oil has strong antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties that prevent dandruff as well as scaling and itching.
