Ayurveda, the ancient science that originated in our very land, has answers to all our haircare woes. Keeping that in mind, we looked deep inside the history of Ayurveda, scrounging for the magical ingredients which could help you, us and everyone maintain long, voluminous, lustrous and healthy hair. We found a secret ingredient that has been hiding in plain sight – Amla – the secret to our grandmother’s thick, glossy and intensely dark hair.
Now that we know about the secret, we want to talk more about it… tell you all about how Amla can help your hair. Are you excited? *loud cheers*
Let’s take a look.
- A natural storehouse of Vitamin C: Vitamin C is one of the most essential nutrients for your hair. It helps create a special protein called collagen, which is responsible for hair health, reduces hair loss, and improves hair growth. How is it connected to the benefits of Amla? Well, Amla is a storehouse of Vitamin C along with several antioxidants and high iron content. Amla-based hair care products or formulations improve blood circulation, stimulate hair growth and strengthen the hair follicles.
- Balances Pitta Dosha: According to Ayurveda, an imbalance of Pitta Dosha is the root cause of several hair-related problems. This loss of balance could be a result of several internal and external factors, but the end result is ‘Khalitya’ or hair fall and ‘Palitya’ or premature greying. Amla is an excellent herb that not only balances Pitta Dosha but also contains compounds like Tannins and Calcium, which help protect the hair from any kind of photo or heat damage.
- Amla for hair fall treatment: Hair fall is a common cry for men and women alike. But don’t worry, Amla can help with that too. The ingredient, also known as a superfood for hair, is rich in vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and phytonutrients. Regular massage using Amla-based hair oil can help replenish the need for oxygen and nourishment, increase blood circulation in the scalp, make hair fibers strong, and prevents hair fall.
- For dandruff treatment: As discussed above, Amla is rich in Vitamin C – and has anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties which can help cure the dryness in the scalp, clear up the build-up of impurities, restore the natural pH of your scalp and stop the accumulation of dandruff. Amla-based hair oils and powders can also help prevent itchiness resulting from dandruff.
Summing up, there are several haircare products in the market. Most of them do have Amla as an ingredient, along with other chemicals which can be harmful for your hair and scalp. Thus, while choosing the right hair oil or mask for your hair, make sure to go all natural. We have a broad range of haircare products that combine the magical properties of Amla along with other secret Ayurveda herbs and other natural ingredients.
