Benefits of Using Amla Paste on your Hair

  • Increases shine, and volume giving a natural glow
  • Encourages hair growth / can treat hair loss
  • Enhances waves and curls, especially curls that have been loosened by henna
  • Leaves you hair and scalp feeling clean and healthy
  • Tones down the redness of the henna in a henna / indigo mix

How to Use Amla Paste on Your Hair

Amla paste is applied to your hair in the same way as henna is applied. You can apply amla paste to your hair on its own, or you can mix amla powder with other conditioning herbs and / or oils. If you have dry hair, you can add some vegetable oil to the paste. One of the best ways to use amla powder for hair is to add amla paste to your henna and indigo mix to help tone down the red of the henna, for a cooler, more ash-brown colour. Mixing the amla with only henna will not noticeably tone down the red of the henna - this only works with indigo.

The Benefits of Using Amla Paste on Your Skin

Amla paste makes a very good exfoliating, toning facial scrub or facial mask. Amla powder has anti-oxidant, anti-bacterial, and astringent properties. The high levels of vitamin C in the amla powder help to break up the dead skin cells, leaving your skin feeling smooth, toned and healthy.

How To Mix Amla Paste

When in powdered form, mix with hot water to make a paste of the same consistency as yoghurt. Let it sit for 30 minutes before using.

Amla Powder

Good quality and very effective when mixed with Hendigo - dyes grey hair dark brown.

Amla powder

I purchased this to use with henna. I'd heard henna can loosen you curl pattern so I added 2 tablespoons of amla to 100g henna. My curls are still alive and my hair is very soft and bouncy. Even my partner was amazed by the condition. I am going to try the amla on its own at some point but I'm truly happy with the results

First Time Trial

I have taken the food grade amla before for health purposes but this was first time I used it for my hair. It left my hair feeling soft and well conditioned. Will use again and keep monitoring. I like it so far.
