Amla oil for dark hair… or not
For dark hair, nothing beats an amla/coconut oil mask twice a week the day before your shampoo in Summer time, amla only in Winter time – when coconut oil is not naturally liquid because of low temperatures.
Note: more and more light-haired readers are using it and are noticing the same effect as some dark-haired readers: amla oil enhances their natural color or prolongs their color, rather than darkening the hair as the Indians say.
Simply mix the two oils in the palm of one hand and insist on the most fragile parts, usually roots and tips.
You can order these two oils in organic version below, either by clicking on the photos or using the text links.
Amla powder mask against white hair.
In addition to oil masks, if you have white hair, you can use amla powder to cover it.
Prepare a green or black tea, add amla powder and boil to thicken the mixture. Leave to cool and then apply to hair after adding coconut oil to the mixture. Leave on for at least 30 minutes before washing your hair.
I recommend the powder below since it is both organic and edible.
For other uses of amla powder, especially for the face and health, see my article here
Kachur sugandhi oil for light hair.
For light hair, you can use kachur sugandhi oil instead of amla.
Do not hesitate to mix with coconut oil to see if the result is even better.
Use kachur sugandhi oil in the same way than amla oil, twice a week, as a mask the day before your shampoo.
You will find below an organic oil.
Amla oil to preserve skin youth.
Amla is the fruit containing the most antioxidant in the world.
Instead of your serum or anti-aging cream, you can completely use the organic amla oil, alone or in addition with other oils such as argan oil. You can even add hyaluronic acid. It dilutes very well in the oil. Let your imagination run wild and create your own serum recipe inspired by those currently on the market!
You will find organic amla oil in the dark hair section. Below you can order the hyaluronic acid and argan oil.

Amla juice for diet.
My Indian friends who want to regulate their weight do regular amla juice cures. It’s very effective.
Be careful however, dilute the juice well with water. You can also cut it with other fruit juices because the taste is not very pleasant.
Amla juice, drunk on an empty stomach at breakfast, will allow you both to regulate your weight and to nourish your body from the inside (thus your skin and hair, as well as your immune system).
