Amla oil is a natural substance made from Indian gooseberries. The powerful properties of amla oil have made this potent ingredient popular for many uses. Most notably amla oil is used to protect and nourish the hair by strengthening the scalp and roots. This oil helps to protect hair from the effects of pollution, stress, build up of styling products, age, thinning and greying, leaving you with thick, glossy and voluminous locks. But did you know that this is not the only way to use amla oil? Keep reading to find out more...

How to use amla oil?

1. Amla hair oil

Our Grow Strong Hair Oil is one of the most direct ways to benefit from the nourishing properties of amla oil. Our unique blend of amla oil is fortified with a combination of herbs, extracts and petals to enhance its nourishing properties. This can be used in multiple ways…

  • Our Grow Strong Amla Hair Oil can be used to combat frizz, dryness and split ends. After brushing your hair in the morning, run a few drops of our nourishing oil down the lengths of your hair. The moisturising and nourishing properties of the oil will not only give your hair a sleek finish in the short term, but will deeply condition, improving the overall health of your hair. 
  • If your hair is in need of a deeply strengthening treatment, our Alma Hair Oil can also be used as a hair mask. Start by brushing your hair and parting it into sections. Take 2-3 drops and massage the oil into your scalp and through to the lengths of your hair. Either leave this in for 2 hours, as this is sufficient time for the oil to penetrate your scalp and roots, or leave in overnight, covering your pillow with a towel. Finish off by washing your hair and conditioning as normal for an all over glossy finish that will leave your hair feeling stronger than ever. If you are new to using amla hair oil, start by using this technique twice a week for the first six weeks, and weekly thereafter.

2. Amla oil shampoo and conditioner

As well as our Grow Strong Hair Oil, here at Mauli we also include the wonder ingredient of amla in our Grow Strong Shampoo and our Grow Strong Conditioner. Our vitamin-rich formula is weightless and deeply cleansing, helping you achieve bouncy and healthy looking hair. The unique combination of extracts, hers and oils will help restore dehydrated scalps, increase thickness, strengthen and give a light-reflecting shine. 

Start by applying our Grow strong Shampoo onto wet hair, gently massaging into your scalp. This will generate blood flow and allow for your scalp to fully absorb the nutrients in the amla oil. After rinsing the shampoo, run our Grow Strong Conditioner through the lengths of your hair, allowing it to sit for a few minutes. Finish off by thoroughly rinsing your hair and enjoying your truly healthy locks.

Also available at Mauli Rituals is our 3 Step Grow Strong Hair Range that includes both our Grow Strong Shampoo, Grow Strong Conditioner and Grow Strong Hair Oil for a complete and nourishing hair routine.
