Make Your Own Amla (Indian Gooseberry) Oil At Home

Hello ladies,

How have you all been doing?!Its been really long since I have written an article . but anyways I am back now and going to share a very important recipe to take care of those manes which holds so much importance and always a very special place in our hearts. So hold your horses ladies because this is going to be an awesome ride . :)

Today I will be sharing with you the process of how you can prepare your own amla hair at home. We all know how beneficial amla to our hair is. It’s renowned worldwide for its ability to strengthen nourish and nurture hair, and most importantly making hair “that” black most women always wanted. Considered to be the richest source of vitamin C, it also helps in preventing premature graying with continuous usage, this little jewel of a fruit is stuffed with all the necessary goodness required for a healthy hair.

So anyways let me get straight to the point without any further ado.

How to make amla oil at home

What you’ll need:

  •  Amla
  •  Coconut oil
  •  Olive oil (optional)

How you’ll do it:
• Grate the amla with the help of a grater.

• Squeeze the now grated amla to extract all the juice out of it. The juice and the coconut oil should be mixed with the oil in 1:2 ratio.

• Then put the coconut oil into it in appropriate proportion, you may add olive oil in this step but make sure oil constitutes half of the amla juice.

• Now boil the mixture over flame and put it into a simmer.

• Put off the flame.
• Stain the concoction and store it in a bottle.

And voila!! You now have your own amla oil!! Easy peasy!!

Usage:

  •  Warm this oil before applying, as we know how good hot oil massage is, for our hair and scalp.
  •  You may use it 30 minutes prior to shampooing your hair if you’re in a jiffy, but if you can keep it overnight, that’ll be the best for your hair.
  •  You may add a few drops of castor oil before applying to as that acts as a catalyst in hair growth.
  •  Now wrap your hair in a towel/shower cap and run your blow drier all over hair, this will act as a steam treatment and help the scalp absorb the nutrients better.

Please note:

  •  I have used only coconut oil as this was the first time, as an experiment and I wanted to keep it as simple as possible .
  •  After applying, you’ll find your hair to be a little sticky, so I would suggest that you comb your hair thoroughly before applying this concoction and not to comb your hair post applying it as that might cause hair fall.
  •  While staining it with abstainer you might not be able to remove a small amount of pulps(which is absolutely okay), but if stained with a cloth then I don’t think it should not be an issue.
  •  Try using up the oil within two weeks of preparation hence don’t prepare too much that it lasts longer than two weeks as it’ll start to ferment and also refrigeration is not recommended
  •  You can also create a concoction out of dried amla, by boiling it in coconut oil until it turns greenish-black like all the amla oil available in the market.

Hope this post was helpful and you enjoyed reading it.
See you next time beautiful.
Stay happy stay beautiful :)

Rinni…I would like to ask how did your
mother leave it in the sun. .. After boiling or
she didn’t boil at all. .. And did she use dried
amla or fresh.
