There’s nothing like using nature’s botanicals on natural hair. It’s almost synergistic (who knows, it problably is!) What I do know is that when you incorporate natural ingredients into your natural hair care regimen, it gives you results that no chemically-made hair product can produce.
I’m at the point where I go grocery shopping for all of my skin and hair care (on the Web, since I can’t find them in my actual local grocer).
But the point is, your hair and scalp love to eat and drink just like you do, and since chemicals aren’t food, it doesn’t respond well to them.
Amalaki, also known as amla(affiliate link), is a fruit that has been used for centuries for hair, skin and body care. It can offer you all-around health (why I add it to my smoothies) and it’s simple to use.
Now, I’ve noticed that people have been having issues with getting great results with amalaki, so I decided to show you how to properly use it for max results. It all comes down to keeping it simple!
Why amalaki should be in your hair care regimen
If you have yet to get on board with amalaki, then you’re definitely missing out. It can offer hair and skin benefits from the inside out, but in this article, we’ll focus on external use.
Now, there are two ways that you can use amalaki — as a powder or as an oil. Most people have only been using it in powder form, but I definitely recommend using it in both forms.
Here are the benefits that amalaki fruit offers:
It gets rid of dandruff: Since it helps to heal your skin of rashes and dryness, it is excellent at curing a flaky scalp.
It conditions your hair: It has nourishing benefits for hair, which can help balance the moisture of your hair.
It cleanses your hair: For centuries, it has been used in natural shampoo formulas because it can get rid of excess oils(affiliate link) and dirt.
Strengthens hair follicles: This is how it’s able to help prevent hair fall, and allow your hair to grow lustrous and long. It’s packed with essential fatty acids that nourish your strands from roots to ends.
Gives your hair natural shine: Forget all the glossy products on the market, with continued use, you can have your own natural shine using amalaki.
