How to grow hair naturally – Amla Powder

DIY mask to grow hair naturally

Have you ever wondered how to grow hair naturally, healthy, long and strong ? have you ever dreamed of hair with no gray at any age? do you wonder how you can achieve a thick, heavy hair the same as Bollywood movie actresses and do not know how?  I have and I do. During my visit to an Indian store, I got captivated by hair products Isle there. More precisely by Amla powder that is derived from an Indian fruit called Indian gooseberry. At that time, I had a damaged dyed hair. Besides, I have tried so many products, and DIY hair masks without noticeable improvement. Soon after I started using Amla powder mask, my hair grew significantly. Below are some benefits of Amla along with my favorite Amla powder mask.

Amla powder

what makes Amla a magic ingredient to hair! Indian gooseberry fruit ( Amla) is enriched with vitamin C and empowered with antioxidant. Amla is a natural remedy that would help grow hair naturally and prevent premature grey hair. Besides, it contains many minerals such as calcium, phosphorus, iron, carotene, and vitamin B complex just to name a few. Further, It combines well with coconut butter or olive oil to create a hair mask that grows hair faster and stronger. What is cool, it is so easy to get for cheap prices in an Indian store or online ( Amazon or eBay).

All you need:

Amla powder and coconut oil

Amla powder and melted coconut oil

2-4 Tps of Amla powder depending on your hair length.

1-2 tbs of coconut butter (melted) coconut butter will help with growing your hair stronger, shinier and healthier

Or 1-2 tbs of olive oil will reduce flakes in a scalp

Small container or bowl to mix ingredients

Brush or spoon if needed, I prefer my hands.

Shower cap or hot towel.

How to use it:

Mix 2-4 tsp Amla powder in a bowl with the melted coconut butter till they form a paste texture. leave the bowl in a warm place or on your counter for a few minutes before applying. start spreading the paste evenly on your scalp. Then massage your scalp, work these fingertips on your scalp! Secure your hair with a tie and put a shower cap on. I leave the mixture for at least 2-3 hours then wash it off with a shampoo. I notice less than usual hair fallout in the shower which is a bonus. The result is shiny, healthy hair while gooseberry will work deeply in growing your hair. I use this mask 2-3 times a month.
