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. 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!

  3. 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.

  4. Helps Give Hair Color Cooler Tones 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 16th Sep 2015

    I dyed all my hair red-violet a while ago. I wanted to get rid of the color using henna. Alma really helped get the red highlights out so I was closer to my natural hair color. Since then I still prefer alma in my henna mix so the indigo last longer and gives my hair the charcoal black I want.

  5. Awesome 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 13th Jul 2015

    My curls were popping after an Amla and Tulsi mask. My hair feels strong. I noticed less shedding after my treatment. I purchased a kilo so I really love this powder.

  6. That patch of hair! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 13th Jul 2015

    I have 'that patch' of fine hair that starts at my crown and stops a few inches above my nape. The hair does a half-hearted wave, and the ends tend to tangle and mat. If you don't have it you may have seen it in hair videos, elevators, or in line at the supermarket.

    I saw some improvement after doing an amla treatment last week on the day I received the product. Yesterday I did a treatment only on that patch of hair. There was less tangling to teeze and there's curl definition.

    Thank you Henna Sooq!

Thanks Khadija!!!

  8. One of the best and most useful hair treatments. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 22nd Apr 2015

    Amla is one of my favorite hair treatments.Whether I've used it to tone down the red of henna or to add body and shine to hair, I'm never disappointed. I've used it on the skin too. Makes great mask or scrub.

  9. Red Raj 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 10th Apr 2015

    I Love Red Raj! It is the best henna product that I have used. I love the vibrancy it gave my hair. My hair is a dusty brown, and it gave me a nice shine as well as a nice deep red, burgundy, with red-copper highlights (my grays).

  10. beautiful 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 7th Apr 2015

    I purchased this along with other powders to help cover grays and deep condition my hair. The powders from Henna Sooq are very fine and soft. They are high quality, the best I have found, and make my hair so soft and conditioned. Customer support is great also. Very helpful.
