Have you wondered why the women of India have such thick, glossy hair?
Well, you’ll be pleased to hear the secret to beautiful hair is not simply a case of good genes. One of the key components to Indian women having thick, luscious locks is the use of a centuries-old tradition of applying herbal oils on their hair and key ingredient being amla berry for hair growth.
Amla berry has been used successfully in Ayurveda for over 5,000 years. More recently Western science has attempted to pinpoint the exact benefits of amla oil to explain its seemingly miraculous qualities. Conclusions have shown health benefits ranging from anti-cancer, anti-inflammatory, anti-diabetic to anti-stress. Here’s let’s focus on hair growth, as stress, pollution and the Western lifestyle does play havoc on hair but we believe herbs and specifically amla berry help to rejuvenate and revive lack-lustre tresses.
What about studies investigating the use of amla oil for hair growth?
A 2012 study found that amla fruit was a very effective inhibitor of 5α-reductase, the same mechanism used in prescription medicine for hair loss.
When formulating our Ayurvedic 3-step rescue range, we were convinced alma held the key to the success of our product Grow Strong Hair Oil. Our treatment oil is slow matured using an old Ayurvedic recipe passed on by Dr Kaushal; an Ayurvedic doctor and the results speak for themselves as our customer feedback testifies. We conclude the benefits of amla oil here:
AMLA OIL FOR HAIR LOSS
Not all amla oils available in the market achieve the same results but using pure, high quality natural oils has shown to be an effective tool against hair loss. Hair breaks less at the roots and falls less, adding to thickness in as little as 4 weeks.
AMLA OIL FOR HAIR GROWTH
The internet is full of before and after photos of men and women using amla oil to achieve stronger longer, beautiful hair. Reading testimonials from our clients, we can confirm that this appears to be the case with systematic use.
AMLA OIL FOR IMPROVING HAIR CONDITION
Hair does appear to grow thicker, healthier and stronger with amla oil. Another key benefit it that amla does slightly darken hair, so for brunettes, that’s a bonus. For blonds, it’s best to use amla on the scalp as opposed to ends.
AMLA OIL FOR GREYING HAIR
Amla oil delays the loss of pigment from hair and therefore slows down the process of greying hair.
AMLA OIL FOR DANDRUFF
Amla extract has been shown to treat a variety of fungal and bacterial skin conditions, as well as the skin of the scalp. Many users say it treats dandruff effectively. We believe that healthy hair can only grow on a healthy scalp, so conditioning with nourishing oils is paramount.
AMLA OIL FOR PARASITES
Amla oil is undeniably one of the best natural methods of treating head lice and this is one of its traditional applications in India. With no side effects and strong evidence indicating its effectiveness, we would recommend it for treating head lice on children. Simply apply oil, leave for an hour and then comb through.
