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

New Ayurvedic Herb User Turned Lifelong Ayurvedic Herb User
Posted by Tiffany Michele on 9th Aug 2018
My hair has been going through changes - I believe mostly due yo aging as it began when i turned 39 (i'm now 40). I have thick, curly, waistlenghth, 3b/c and 4a textured hair and began to experience severe dryness, frizzing, shedding, and breakage. In addition, my curl pattern greatly relaxed and became more of a loose wave. I have not colored or chemically treated my hair in 20 years. I was at a loss as deep conditioning wasn't really working because my hair would not retain moisture, and styling products were no longer affective. I began researching and learned about ayurvedic herbs for hair care. I knew about henna - but was unaware of all the other herbs available. I did not try henna because I did not want to affect my natural hair color - dark brown with red undertones. I learned Cassia could provide the same conditioning benefits without the color. I also found out that all a could help restore curl pattern, so I thought I'd try both. All on all, I purchased amla (powder and oil), cassia, hibiscus, and aloe Vera powders from Henna Sooq. The quality is wonderful. Powders are finely ground and fresh. I also ordered fenugreek and marshmellow root powders from an alternate supplier to include in my first hair mask. I mixed all the powders together and added warm honey water and lavender essential oil to create a brownie mix-like consistency. The fenugreek, aloe vera, and marshmallow root added a great deal of slip which not only made application and rinsing very easy, but provided a tremendous amount of moisture.
My hair improved dramically after the very first use. It was soft, moisturized (and retained moisture long afterwards), manageable, strong, almost completely frizz free, and most of my curl bounced back. I did a second application two weeks later and my results were even better. My hair has never looked or felt this good - even when it was "healthy". I did not experience any dryness at all with this mixture. I'm extremely pleased and will continue to use this treatment and purchase my powders from Henna Sooq. The quality of the product makes the cost insignificant.
I also just began creating ayurvedic powder infusions for a hair / scalp oil treatment to be used twice a week and a water-based sprtitz that I will use daily as a leave-in conditioner. The amla oil that I purchased is also good - moisturizing, absorbs easily, and not too heavy.
I'm so glad I ventured on this journey. Thank You.
Works Great on Dark Blonde Hair
Posted by Katie Smith 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.
Strengthening AND Conditioning
Posted by Darienne Jones 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.

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.

I love this powder. My hair felt instantly stronger. Mixes well with Henna powder. Will definitely be ordering more
Buyer Beware .....

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!
First time trying this product!
Posted by Monica Davis 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.
Alma & henna treatment
Posted by Zarinah I Sabir 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~

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!
