While me and my hair are huge fans of dabur amla, the powder from amla has its own minus ... but more on that later in the review. A few words from the producer: ,, In 100% natural, powdered Amla fruit for strengthening and thickening of the hair; used in traditional Ayurvedic treatments for lichen and color enhancement.
The mask contains powdered fruit Amla (Indian gooseberry) without any admixtures. Is a natural product, not tested on animals and in 100% vegetarian. Amla contains a lot of vitamin C and is valued as an Ayurvedic conditioner that strengthens hair roots and prevents them from falling out.
The mask naturally cleanses and restores balance to both hair and scalp. Gives the hair shine and when used regularly removes dandruff, prevents graying and stimulates hair growth. Can also be used on the face to lighten the complexion and remove blackheads, blackheads and other impurities. Amla acts on the skin anti-bacterial and anti-oxidative. Especially recommended for sensitive and acne skin. To do this, mix one tablespoon Amli with warm water and leave on the face for about 20 minutes, then thoroughly wash with warm water in a circular motion and finally rinse the face with cold water. "
When I first used this mask, I only mixed it with water to see how my hair would react to it. The options were two - either the hair will be beautiful, shiny and loose or very stiff (well cleaned) and will not want to style. Fortunately, I achieved the first effect, but not in 100%, so the second time I added a bit of hair conditioner garnier with avocado oil. I don't like it when it's unclear how much product to mix with how much water. I can only cook by eye, when it comes to cosmetics I don't like to mess them by eye.
And this stench ... a terrible, awful stench ... I really had gag reflexes when I was making up this mask ... I thought that natural algae stink, but with powdered amla it is a pick. I feel this scent on my shoulders, until I get goose bumps when I remember it ... blah ... I mixed 4 tablespoons of amla powder with 6 tablespoons of water, possibly adding more water when I saw that the mask was too thick. Then I put it on my hair and held 30 minutes. I rinsed thoroughly afterwards. Apply the mask once a week, once every two weeks (I recommend, however, once a week).
The mask nourished my hair nicely, after rinsing and drying (not with a dryer, it dried naturally) they were loose and shiny as I expected. The worst thing is that the stink of Amla still lasted a bit ... The mask itself is really cool and I will use it on 100% ... I just wonder how to eliminate this stink ... I think ... I wonder if it can be added to khadi paint?
I found something like this: Application in coloring: the Amla mask wonderfully refreshes the hair color by gently darkening it, but in itself it does not color. It is recommended for hair in shades from dark blond to black. Added to Henna will allow you to get a darker color. Connected with Henna and Indigo gives the color of cold brown (acidic Amlę and Henna should be mixed together, then add the alkaline Indigo).
I did not notice the darkening effect when using it as a hair mask, but my hair is dark (now after khadi nut brown, after which the color has become much more uniform). The next time I use honey on my hair. I think there will be a better smell, and the mask will gain in value. For my part, I recommend it, but only to those who do not have the smell: P haha, I'm joking ... so seriously I think that with a gas mask should be ok;)
