- Brahmi calms and relaxes. It is also an ancient Indian remedy for hair loss.
Packaging, consistency, color and smell of the hair oil
The Khadi Amla hair oil comes in a pretty pipette bottle with a golden cap. It is quite fluid and very easy to apply on the scalp. The dark brown to black color comes from the Amla seeds, from which the oil is made of. The color can be easily washed out with shampoo. For some it smells amazing, for others it might smell not that good. Personally, I find the smell of Indian herbs wonderful and very relaxing. I actually don’t like to sweet and artificial smells anymore.
Application of Khadi Amla Hair Oil
The Khadi amla hair oil is applied before shampooing. Simply massage the oil directly to the scalp and let it soak in at least 30 minutes (overnight is even better). After that wash your hair as usual. If you are using a very mild shampoo, you probably have to shampoo your hair twice to get rid of the oil. PS: Because the Amla Hair Oil is extracted from Amla seeds, it is dark brown to black. However, it is completely safe to use on blond hair.
I use the Khadi amla hair oil usually on a friday or saturday night, when I know that I won’t leave the house anymore. I apply the hair oil on the dry scalp, massage it in and distribute it through the hair. Then I braid my hair in a ponytail, secure it with a hair clip at the top and let the hair oil soak in overnight. The next morning I wash my hair as usual with shampoo.
TIP: If you do not want oil on your pillow, you can wrap your head with a plastic bag or cling film. Or even better: Use a special pillow for this ritual. This way you are also reducing your use of plastic.
My review and experience with the Khadi Amla hair oil
As you might have guessed: I absolutely adore this hair oil. I love the smell, the packaging and the ritual, that comes with applying it. It really saved my hair from breaking and helped me getting long hair. Right from the beginning i was amazed by the results! Of course there is no miracle cure out there, that makes your hair super strong over night, but i definitely saw results after a few weeks/months of using this hair oil. My hair felt healthier. They also looked really nice – voluminous and shiny. This hair oil also stimulates my hair growth and helps me growing out my hair faster. I still use it 2-4 times per month and i want to use it foreverrrrr!
