You certainly already asked yourself this question: how to stimulate hair growth?
As for me, I found the answer to this question during my second trip to India in 2012, when I discovered the beauty secret of Indian women: amla oil.
Since then, my hair, which struggled to stay healthy when it reached the chest, has been able to grow to the point of reaching my buttocks, while remaining supple, full of life and slightly wavy. According to me, it’s the best hair loss treatment for women.
In this video, I explain:
- what amla is,
- the effects of amla oil,
- how to use it,
- what oil to use,
- where to buy it.
At the end of the article, you will find a summary of the video content and links to order the oil directly from Amazon.
What is amla?
Amla is an Asian gooseberry used in ayurveda. It has many virtues thanks to its high content of antioxidants, vitamins A and C.
It is also a powerful inhibitor of 5 alpha-reductase, a principle used to fight baldness.

Amla oil effects to stimulate hair growth.
By nurturing them, amla oil makes hair stronger and healthier. No more brittle roots and split ends!
Because they are healthier and well nourished, they grow longer and faster. Amla products encourage hair growth naturally.
You can see the evolution of my hair growth between late 2012 and 2018 in my complete guide on amla oil for hair.
Amla also darkens the hair. At 45 years old, I never colour them and I only have 4 or 5 white hairs.

For blondes, you can use another Indian oil instead of amla: kachur sugandhi oil.
How to use amla oil for promoting hair growth?
Simply apply it twice a week to fragile areas, usually roots and ends, leave it on all night and then shampoo as usual.
Which amla oil to buy and where?
I recommend the pure amla oil.
Do not buy the Dabur brand, recommended everywhere, but containing paraffin – petroleum residues.
You can order from Amazon’s website using the links below. Delivery is generally free of charge and you will find an excellent choice of products at competitive prices.
The must for hair: amla coco hair mask.
I have started alternating between an amla mask and a coconut oil mask. The results on my hair are excellent and I have decided to mix amla and coco for my mask, as most of my female Indian friends do. I use 100% organic coconut oil.
The coconut oil makes my hair even softer and wavy (when I was little, my hair was curly).
So, for an optimal result, I advise you to use both the amla oil above and coconut oil below.
If you’re looking for ways to stimulate hair growth, you should try bio amla oil. By nurturing your hair, it will promote hair growth but will also be a good help for thinning hair.
