Hair Oil at Home with Amla

What do you need?

  • You will need amla and coconut oil. You need buy them.
  • You will need sunlight and that’s free.
  • You will need a stove and that comes with some cost too.
  • Finally, you will need some time.

Processing the raw materials

  • Chop amla into small pieces – as small as possible. Leave them in sunlight for a couple of days to make sure that the pieces are dry and crisp. The smaller the pieces, the quicker they dry.
  • Crush the dried pieces to form a powder.
  • Mix the powder with coconut oil properly for some time. Make sure that there are no lumps.

The final steps

  • Now take coconut oil and amla powder mixture in a container and heat it. While heating, you will notice that the oil gradually starts to change its hue to brown. Turn off the stove when the oil turns brown completely.
  • Allow the heated oil to cool down to room temperature normally.
  • Once the oil reaches the room temperature, pour it into a jar and close the lid properly.

Voila! You are done! Now you can use the oil every day before bath. Apply on hair 30 minutes before you go to shower. Use daily and you can start noticing the difference within a week.
