Amla hair oil has been an integral part of hair care rituals in the Indian culture. It has played a key role in nurturing and fulfilling dreams of thick and beautiful hair which every women takes pride. Combine amla powder and coconut oil in a stainless-steel pan. Place the pan on the lowest heat setting and keep stirring occasionally. When it starts to bubble slightly, cook for another minute or so, then turn off the heat, cover the pan and allow to steep until the oil has cooled. Strain and use.
When you apply the oil, make sure you give more time to let it sit in your scalp, especially if you’re suffering from dandruff and itchy scalp. If so, you’re recommended to use the oil daily as your conditioner. When using the overnight method, you can use a shower cap or just cover your pillow with a towel to avoid staining. The oil is preferably for home and night use because it has a musky smell that you wouldn’t want to use outdoors.
