Great for: Hair loss, premature greying, dandruff

Amla is high in Vitamin C  & antioxidants and works hard at stimulating hair follicles. Our powder is an excellent natural hair conditioner.

Growing throughout India, Amla is known as the Indian gooseberry and is excellent at moisturising the scalp, stimulating hair follicles and encouraging healthy hair. High in Vitamin C and antioxidants, it’s also good for protecting the hair from the drying, damaging effects of pollution.

Ingredients: Amla Powder (Indian Gooseberry) / Emblica Officinalis (Amla ) Fruit Powder.

Directions: Use either as a paste or tea rinse, leave on hair for 30-45 minutes then rinse thoroughly with warm water.


The TRUTH: I wrote a review on Amla oil a while back expressing my undying love for this oil lol, but I must bring your attention to the powder. This powder has numerous benefits, from strengthening of the hair root to the ends of the hair, it also aids in hair growth, it defines curls (this is something I have noted), it also helps in darkening of henna (if you don’t want that lush read colour that henna gives, mix up some amla and it helps lessen the red result), amla also gives a dark tinge to the hair after prolong usage and also helps in premature graying.

I think I will stop there, you get the picture of how awesome and brilliant this one powder alone is and the numerous benefits that it brings to the table in order to appease your hair’s appetite.

You can use this oil in many ways, just to list a few 1. makes into a paste using either black tea or boiled water and apply to either freshly washed hair and leave on for 30mins – 1hr longer if you wish or the same steps can be done if you pre oiled your hair with coconut oil or any other oil of your choice overnight then in the morning apply the paste to your hair and leave on for as long as you wish. Then rinse the hair thoroughly with warm water to remove the paste completely. Then proceed to co-washing (please be gentle with your hair), you may feel the need to DC wth a moisturizing conditioner and you may not……, listen to your hair, you will be able to tell if you need to DC or not…………., I always do, because I note how strong my hair feels but I know once it dries, it is a different bizniz.

2. You can make it into a ‘tea’ you can add the powder to boil water and brew a tea from the powder, you will then need a cheese cloth to strain the tea to reduce the amount of grains you will haveto deal with when it comes to rinsing your hair. Use the tea to rinse your hair, let it sit for few minutes, then rinse your hair with warm water and proceed to your next regimen step(s).

3. You can infused the powder into a favourite oil of yours, to name a few (EVCO, EVOO, grapeseed oil, sesame oil,, sunflower oil etc), you can strain the oil through a cheese cloth/fine strainer and then use this oil to apply to the hair daily or use as a pre-poo treatment for your hair.

Either way you choose to use Amla Powder you are sure to notice a difference in the way your hair feels and looks. This powder is good for nourishing both natural hair and scalp…….., A life time staple of mine.

    I like the kalpi tone since it has pretty much EVERYTHING in it, including the amla. I also love how it defintiely tones down the henna which is one of the greatest benefits of it. How does the amla compare to the Kalpitone for you? Thanks

  2. I'm 24 and have grey hairs, which hereditary from my father's side, I've heard about this Amla curing premature grey hairs, but does it actually help, or does it just color the grey hairs?

  4. Hi, I started using the Amla powder with hot boiled tea water. I notice the consistency of this paste is unlike henna. That is the paste when applying to the hair tends be grainy and doesn't stick to the hair. Lot of it falls down. Is this expected? I made sure I left it to settle for 20+ mins before applying.

    1. You need to make the paste a yogurt consistency, apply it to damp hair. There should not be or as much fall down. Take your time and apply the paste to small sections of hair at a time and then throw on a plastic cap and leave it for the time you want then rinse out.

      Let me know if you need any more help.
