Simply add a teaspoon of amla to your henna or use amla on its own as a hair curl and conditioning treatment in one.

Amla fruit, also known as Indian Gooseberry, is a Vitamin C powerhouse and one of the best natural sources of Vitamin C.  Amla is reputed to have the highest content of vitamin C than any other naturally occurring substance on the planet ! ( 20 times more than a single orange). Amla is a natural hair conditioner and a natural skin cleanser. Mix the powder with water and apply the paste to your hair for as long or as little as you want. 30 minutes to an hour is all you need for hair conditioning and hair curl, and longer if you want to darken your hair colour slightly. A one hour Vitamin C hair treatment with Amla paste mixed with water, on blonde and grey hair, will not result in any noticeable colour charge.


Amla will also encourage natural hair waves and hair curl in your hair.
