Ayurveda practitioners use amla oil for its conditioning benefits and pigments. Indigenous to India, the Amalaki plant, also referred to as Emblica officinalis, produces amla fruit or Indian gooseberry. Mature amla fruit weighs approximately one-tenth of a pound. Cultivation of the plant occurs both commercially and in private gardens throughout India. Amla oil is applied to the hair or the scalp for conditioning and healing.
Ayurveda practitioners use amla oil to improve the condition of hair. Apply the oil to your hair after shampoo. Restore shine and soften hair texture with daily application of amla oil. Those with oily hair should apply the oil only twice per week to limit oil build-up. Decrease the effects of harsh shampoos by adding amla oil to the shampoo or applying to your hair prior to shampoo. Several commercial shampoos and conditioners contain amla oil.
Amla oil promotes a healthy scalp, according to traditional Ayurvedic practitioners. Apply amla oil to the scalp to combat dandruff or soothe an inflamed scalp. The vitamin C present in amla acts as an anti-inflammatory. Apply nightly if you suffer from a chronically itchy or sore scalp. Massage the oil into your scalp using circular patterns.
Add amla oil to your conditioner or shampoo to delay the graying process. D. N. Kakar notes in "All You Want to Know About Hair Care" that amla exhibits hair-darkening properties. Avoid frequent application of amla oil if you prefer lighter tresses. .livestrong.com/
So...any takers? I'm curious about the delaying of the graying process I'm not gonna jump on the bandwagon immediately because I know me...I am pretty stuck in my ways and have too many products just sitting around that haven't been tried or I have tried and just don't like. Let me know if any of you have tried it and if so what's your take on it? I'd love to know!
