Amla Oil for Hair: The Complete Guide

Amla Oil for Hair: The Complete Guide

Though the Indian gooseberry tree is indigenous to India, it is now commercially produced across the Middle East and Asia. While all parts of the Amla tree are said to have therapeutic properties, Amla fruits are particularly high in vitamin C, as well as a variety of other antioxidants and minerals.

Amla oil is claimed to offer several advantages, including strengthening hair, increasing hair growth, eliminating dandruff, and preventing hair loss and greying. For thousands of years, amla fruits have been consumed or processed into tonics and oils and used as a medicinal and preventive medication.

The benefits for hair include:

  • Strengthen the scalp and hair.
    • Amla oil is high in phytonutrients, vitamins, and minerals, which provide shine, strength, and hydration to the skin. Hair may grow healthier and more resilient if you use amla oil into your hair care regimen.
    • Amla oil also preserves the cuticle of the hair. The hair cuticle is the outermost layer of the hair shaft that protects it from environmental influences such as extreme heat, dust, pollution, hard water, and hair style.
  • Reduce premature pigment loss from hair, or greying.
    • Amla oil, as an antioxidant, protects our hair from these potentially harmful external elements.
  • Prevent or treat dandruff, parasitic hair and scalp infections, like lice infections, and dry scalp
    • The antimicrobial properties of amla oil may prevent the occurrence of dandruff and the treatment of other causes of scalp irritation.
  • Moisturizer for dry hair:
    • Amla is very hydrating, thus it might help to nourish damaged, brittle hair.

How Do You Properly Store Amla Oil?

Depending on the base oil and manufacturing process, amla oil can be kept at room temperature for up to three years. Any oil that suddenly smells foul, changes colour, or consistency should be discarded. Never use amla oil that has passed its expiry date.

Hair Type Considerations

Experts believe that amla oil is suitable for all hair types and textures, but it is especially beneficial for people who have dry, brittle hair and greasy scalps. Vitamin C, Vitamin E, and antioxidants may assist to moisturise and maintain the hair follicle while also potentially controlling sebum production on the scalp.

How to Use Amla Oil for Hair

Amla oil can be used topically or consumed orally. While amla oil has certain health advantages, people hoping for its hair-boosting properties should stick to topical treatments. 

  • Use the oil as a treatment: Amla oil may be used straight to the hair and scalp as a treatment (after patch testing). The oil can then be rinsed away or kept in as a conditioning treatment.
  • Create a mask: Make a paste using the powdered form of amla and water or oil, then apply it evenly on the scalp. Massage the paste into your hair roots to ensure it reaches the epidermis of your scalp.  
  • Pre-wash detangler: Before shampooing, apply the oil to unclean hair. Working through the hair, utilise the moisturising properties of the oil to help in detangling. If you don't have time to let it stay in your hair, use a blow dryer for a few minutes before bathing and shampooing to heat and activate the oil.
