You can use amla as part of your henna and ayurvedic hair treatments or on its own.

People generally use it on its own when they want to tighten up their coils after a henna or cassia treatment without affecting color results.

When using it along with other herbs you should add at least 3-4 tbsp per 100 grams.

You can mix your henna and ayurvedic recipes with warm water, tea, coffee, herbal teas, and some lemon juice. Don't use too much lemon juice, if any, as it can be drying

  1. Works Great on Dark Blonde Hair 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 5th Jan 2018

    I'm totally new to amla powder, so I didn't know what to expect and was a little worried about how it would alter the color of dark blonde hair. Turned out to be very, very gentle. The change in color was not noticeable to anyone but me, and I like that the result is so natural. It left my hair soft and manageable, not flat or dry. It definitely enhanced the volume, too, which is so vital for women with fine hair. I will definitely use amla again, and I'm trying out some other powders from Henna Sooq as well.

  2. Strengthening AND Conditioning 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 30th Oct 2017

    Though some strengthening treatments such as cassia or henna need a deep conditioning treatment afterwards, amla actually strengthens and conditions. Left the hair curly, moisturized and shiny.

  3. Good Quality 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 26th Oct 2017

    I added the Amla into my henna mix. I'm not sure, but when I untwisted my hair, it had incredible definition, and shine. If the Amla contributed to that --- HOORAY!!! I will continue to use Amla in my hair oils. And now that I know it can be used in skincare, I plan to mix it with my African Black Soap.

  4. Awesome 5 Star Review

  5. Buyer Beware ..... 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 15th Jan 2017

    This powder is Amazing! My curls were so happy that i mixed,(water only), and applied this product.
    I let it marinate on my hair for 4 hours while running some errands.
    Not much to say because this powder speaks for itself. Ordering more!

  6. First time trying this product! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 28th Dec 2016

    I originally bought this to put inside my henna to stop the reddish color and I love it. The last time I tried it just with my conditioner, coconut oil and honey and when I say this had my curls popping, omg I love it. I even made a face mask with this and it cleared me acne within days and left my skin moisturized.Next time I am going to buy it in bulk.

  7. Alma & henna treatment 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 16th Nov 2016

    As a first-time henna girl I used jamila henna and amla together and used the indigo afterwards to dye my hair black. I'm extremely happy with my results! I waited three days before I straightened my hair and applied my own homemade hair butter. My results for our fantastic! My hair is crazy soft and voluminous. I have African-American hair. This treatment is a must for us! I can't wait to see what continuous henna treatments will do in the future for both hair length and strength! Thank you Hennasooq for making a pure product available to us, thank you for the YouTube videos and thank you for answering all my questions diligently!!!~Z~

  8. Big difference! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 29th Aug 2016

    I bought Amla because I heard it helped blue black tones come out and for indigo to stick, as well as because my last henna dyes have had a straightening effect. I combined just 4 TBSP with 100g henna that I let release for 12 hours before mixing with Indigo for a "Blue" focused two step process, and WOW!! My hair is SO shiny! Even in normal lighting, I'm obsessed. And I am still waiting a few days to do my normal shampooing and conditioning as instructed to wait after doing an indigo dye, but even just after a water rinse of the dye my husband said my hair looked fuller, thicker. I think the Amla definitely contributed, especially because even after sleeping in it but hair was naturally wavy curlier than normal, and I hadn't put any other product in it yet. The henna mix was also a LOT easier to put into my hair than normal, which I am also wondering if it is attributed to the Amla powder. Excellent product! Will definitely buy again!

  10. Boost your curls loosened by henna 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 1st Dec 2015

    If repeated henna treatments loosening your natural curl pattern has got you down (as shiny and strong as my hair looks and feels after henna treatments, my curls become too loose and look "stringy") let amla powder come to the rescue. This product does exactly what it says it will do in that regard. I not only got my curls back, my natural waves tightened to the point where I had almost Shirley Temple curls following one of these treatments. It was kind of amazing! My only complaint was that the amla powder was pretty hard and condensed in several large chunks that took a while to break up as I was creating the hair mask. My recipe:
    -100 grams of amla powder;
    -10 grams of aloe vera powder;
    -1 can of organic coconut milk, warmed;
    -1 tablespoon of olive oil;
    -1 tablespoon of avocado oil;
    -1/4-1/2 cup of aloe Vera juice, rose water and lavender water stirred in until you reach a pancake batter consistency; and
    -a couple of drops each of the following essential oils for treating dry hair: rose, geranium, myrrh, lavender, sandalwood, Ylang Ylang and frankincense.

    Combine all ingredients and let mix sit for at least half an hour. I have thick, shoulder length hair and only used half of it. I froze the other half of this batch. Add 2 tablespoons of Manuka honey right before application. Let mask sit on hair for at least 30 mins (mine was on my hair for approximately two hours). Rinse thoroughly and follow up with a deep conditioner that I would advise leaving on for at least 30 minutes. Prepare for gorgeous curls. I want to also warn you that with certain hair textures, the amla does not rinse out cleanly and is visible as small grains the next day. I have coarse 3A curls and my daughter has a combination of 3B and 3C hair. The amla mask rinsed out of my hair completely. It was still visible in her hair the next day.
