What is Amla and how does it work?
Amla (powdered Indian gooseberry fruit) is often used in cassi and henna mixtures to acidify them. It is recommended to add no more than 25% of the mixture by volume, as amla tends to dry out the hair a lot. It darkens the color, cools it, gives ash tones and supports the oxidation of color, it is helpful for obtaining cool, dark cassia blondes, as well as brown and burgundy henna.
Regular use of the powder can make your hair curl. Amla can be used in herbal mixtures as well as in masks and conditioners, but it is not recommended to keep chemical products on the hair for more than 20 minutes.
You can add amla to a natural herbal shampoo, usually consisting of aritha (washing nuts) and shikakai. The second option is to cook the washing nuts whole and pour this infusion of conditioning herbs. Massage into the scalp and leave it for a minimum of 15 minutes to an hour, it is worth putting on a foil cap to prevent the shampoo from drying out. Rinse off with a strong stream of water.
ATTENTION! Adding amla to indigo, katam, sandalwood, kamala or campwood can inhibit the secretion / effect of the dye as they are alkaline powders.
The herbs are packed in biodegradable and ecological packaging that meets the American ASTM D-6868 and D-6400 standards, with care for the environment!
