How To Use Amla For Hair Care At Home: Amla has been used for hair care at homes in India for centuries. There are many ways of imbibing its goodness including consumption in its raw form or its juice. However, since it can be bitter and sour, most people are not able to consume it. But don’t worry, you can still harness its magical properties in these easy ways:
  • You can make a home-made shampoo of amla. Boil some dried amla along with reetha (soapnuts) and shikakai for about 10 minutes in plain water. Keep it overnight and then sieve the water. Use this water to wash hair in the morning.
  • Apply a mixture of amla and lemon juice on your scalp and leave it for 20 to 30 minutes. Rinse off with warm water. This will strengthen your hair from roots and make it shinier.
  • Mix some amla juice with henna and apply it on your hair. This will counteract the drying nature of henna, thus providing you with healthy and conditioned hair. You can also use it as a hair wash to add extra shine and bounce.
  • Blend amla juice with an egg, beat it and massage your hair with it. Amla juice will mask the smell of eggs and provide you with shiny, silky and squeaky clean nourished scalp.
If all these are beyond the scope of your daily life, you can simply nourish your scalp by massaging Dabur Amla Hair Oil on it. Leave it overnight and wash your hair with a mild shampoo for best results. So are you ready to shine? Because these hair care tips will definitely make you shine and stand apart.
