Amla—The Indian Gooseberry
Amla is not only used as an ayurvedic solution for hair fall, but also an effective treatment for purifying blood and treating indigestion. This conditioning ingredient improves scalp health by tackling dandruff and scalp aggravation. When used in combination with shikakai, it acts as a natural dye that imparts a natural brown color.
You Will Need:
- 5-6 tbsp Amla Powder
- 5-6 tbsp Water
- In a bowl, combine the ingredients to get a thick, smooth paste.
- Section your hair and start applying this paste to your scalp and hair.
- Leave it in for 30 minutes and then wash off with shampoo.
Thrice a week.
You can also add shikakai powder to this mix by soaking amla and shikakai powder in warm water overnight. Alternatively, you can also extract amla juice from the fruit and use the liquid for scalp and hair treatment.
