India Amla oil is reputed to stop hair loss, to halt grey hair in its tracks, and to strengthen, condition, and rejuvenate the dullest, lifeless hair. The amla fruit ( emblica officinalis / also known as indian gooseberry) is said to be the richest natural source of vitamin C on the planet ! Apply just 3 - 4 drops to your palms ( or as needed – you would require double for an intensive pre-shampoo scalp massage), rub palms together to warm the oil a little and spread it as far as your finger tips, then lightly massage your scalp, gently lifting the hair roots as you go, and finally apply oil to the ends of your hair by scrunching the hair and just gently touching the hair ends. Lightly brush hair to spread oil throughout the hair. You can omit the scalp massage and just apply lightly to hair ends for a gentle conditioning. For combination hair conditioning, shampoo with your usual shampoo first, then shampoo a second time using a ratio of 90:10 shampoo / amla – you won't believe the results ! It beats conventional hair conditioners BIG TIME and you'll get just stunning India silk hair !
