Amla Oil is a natural substance often used to promote hair health. Some people also use Amla oil to fight hair loss and prematurely graying hair. When used as a hair treatment, Amla oil is typically applied directly to the scalp.
Amla oil has long been used in ayurvedic medicine. Featuring a number of essential fatty acids, amla oil is thought to strengthen the hair follicles and condition the hair. It can also help treat dry, itchy scalp. Besides essential fatty acids, amla fruit are high in vitamin C, flavonoids, polyphenols, and also contain water, protein, carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals.
How to Use Amla Oil on Hair
Applying Amla Oil to the scalp can help with dandruff or soothe a dry, itchy scalp. The oil is massaged into the scalp daily and rinsed out after 15 minutes, or it can be left on the scalp overnight before being washed out. To prevent staining, pillows should be covered with old towels or an old t-shirt or a shower cap can be worn also.
Amla oil can have a strong, musky smell, so it may not be suitable as a leave-in conditioner or styling product unless used sparingly.
