8 Ways to Use Indian Gooseberry For hair 

Eat Amla to Reduce Hair Fall

Having an amla a day can do your hair a world of good. Amla juice is equally effective. Daily consumption of amla juice (one glass) on an empty stomach is highly recommended for people with severe hair fall problems.

Amla for strong hair growth

If you wish to make your hair grow stronger and thicker, the simple yet effective amla tonic is just for you. Apply and gently massage your scalp with freshly extracted amla juice. Thoroughly rinse your hair with a mild herbal shampoo after 50 minutes to 1 Hour.

Use Indian Gooseberry & Lemon for Nourishment

Amla and lemon are known to nourish the hair from within. A mixture containing freshly extracted lemon and amla juice acts as a great tonic. Massage your scalp with this tonic. Let it sit for 30 minutes. Rinse your hair with lukewarm water.

Wash Hair With Amla Water

In a bowl of water, add few pieces of freshly cut amla. Bring the water to boil. Filter the water once it cools down (at least 30-40 minutes). In the case of dried pieces of amla, you can soak it in water overnight. For better results, wash your hair with this water daily.

Use Amla & shikakai for Healthy Hair

Amla and shikakai are synonymous with healthy hair. Make a hair pack using amla and shikakai powder. Mix it thoroughly with water. Apply and keep this pack onto your hair (full length) for 30 minutes. Rinse your hair properly with cold water. The application of this pack is helpful to check hair fall problems.

Amla & Coconut Oil for Thick Hair

When it comes to hair fall, nothing works better than Amla and Coconut oil.  Add a few dried pieces of amla to a bowl containing coconut oil. Heat the ingredients until the mixture becomes thick and dark. Regular use of this excellent amla liquid can control your hair problems to a great extent.

Amla Juice for Hair Growth

Henna is a natural hair conditioner. It acts as a catalyst, accelerating the process of hair growth. Prepare a smooth paste of henna powder by mixing it thoroughly with amla juice (freshly extracted). Apply this paste throughout your hair. Let it stay onto your hair for 1-2 hours. Wash it off with plain water. You can also use a mild shampoo.

Indian Gooseberry & Almond Oil for Hairfall Problem
