Hailed as a “miracle oil”, Amla oil has drastically improved haircare. With its endless benefits for hair and skin, it has become the preferred oil for hair professionals and the public. It claims to sort out many of our biggest hair gripes, but what exactly is it? Here’s what you need to know.
What it is: Amla oil is made from drying the fruit of the amla tree and soaking it in other oils such as coconut, sesame and almond oils. The amla oil and its haircare properties then infuses into these carrier oils.
Its composition is mainly fatty acids and vitamin C, which make a powerful antioxidant cocktail to prevent cell damage in the body. Thankfully, this botanical blessing has gained popularity worldwide and has since been used as an ingredient in a wide range of hair products. It can be sold as a simple oil treatment, as in Dark and Lovely Amla Legend Oil Of 7 Wonders, or mixed in with other oils in moisturising shampoos, hair masks and deep conditioners.
The non-greasy amla formula found in products like Dark and Lovely Amla Legend Damage Anti-Dote is good news for African hair suffering from breakage. It’s also a softening agent for ethnic hair prone to dryness, and can even be an effective treatment for dandruff.
The benefits of using amla oil as part of your haircare routine are endless, and more are being discovered! Ask your stylist for amla-based products at your next salon appointment, look for goods containing it on your next shopping trip, and prepare to have soft, moisturised hair like never before – a gift straight from nature to you!
