Benefits of Amla Oil
Apply the oil to your hair after shampoo.
*Restore shine and soften hair texture with daily application of amla oil.
*Those with oily hair should apply the oil only twice per week to limit oil build-up.
*Decrease the effects of harsh shampoos by adding amla oil to the shampoo or applying to your hair prior to shampoo. Several commercial shampoos and conditioners contain amla oil.

*Apply amla oil to the scalp to combat dandruff or soothe an inflamed scalp. The vitamin C present in amla acts as an anti-inflammatory.
*Apply nightly if you suffer from a chronically itchy or sore scalp. Massage the oil into your scalp using circular patterns. (www.livestrong.com).
