Don’t we all have this little crush on our hair where every falling strand, a split end or even a minor suffering in smoothness has the ability to break our hearts? And then hair problems are as many...dull hair, lifeless hair, falling hair, breaking hair and most commonly lack of shine. But where the problems are many, there is one very potent desi antidote to all our woes—amla. This little green berry has amazing qualities to not only make your hair healthier but also reverse hair damages.
It takes very little to include this wonder berry in your diet. If you can stand its astringent taste, just munch one while driving to work or watching your fave serial. For those with gentler taste buds, dry grated amla in the sun and add a pinch of salt to it. Swallow a tablespoon of this powder with water. Add an amla to green chutney or a soup, drink it in vegetable juice, eat amla murabba if sweet tooth is what you have, or have amla pickle as a condiment. The more adventurous can add amla to curries.
