DIY Hair Fall Remedy Using Amla

Written By:

Don't we all hate the season of hair fall? Yes, there are certain times of the year when all of us go through more hair fall than we usually do during the other times.

While it can be comforting to know that others are having the same problem as us, and we aren't alone in our miseries, it would be great if the hair fall could be stopped all together. It is extremely painful to watch our precious hair come off in bunches.

About hundred strands of hair falling every day is considered to be the normal amount. I know that seems like a lot, but actually it isn't, considering the number of hair strands on your scalp. However, losing more hair than the normal count can be extremely stressful.

Not just that, it can be really unsightly to leave huge bunches of hair strands wherever you comb or touch your hair. Not to forget, the shower drain getting clogged with bunches of hair. Yuck!!

Fortunately, there are a few ways to reduce hair fall to a great extent. And one of those ways is by doing warm oil massages. This increases circulation in the scalp and promotes hair growth.

Here, I'll be sharing an easy DIY recipe using amla (Indian gooseberry) and coconut oil that you must give a shot at.

Ingredients Required:
Coconut oil
Dried amla pieces

Method Of Preparation & Application:

Boil one cup of coconut oil for 4-5 minutes. Add the pieces of dried amla. Keep boiling it until the amla pieces turn brown in colour. Strain the amla pieces out of the oil, and massage the oil all over the scalp. Keep massaging for a few minutes.

This will not only promote hair growth by increasing blood circulation, but it would also be quite relaxing. Enjoy the massage for as long as you want.

Keep the oil on your scalp for at least 2 hours. Keeping it overnight would be even better. Wash it off the next day using your usual shampoo and conditioner.

Amla is seen to be an ingredient in various shampoos and hair oils. But the better way would obviously be to make your own amla hair oil. It is way more reliable and is guaranteed to work a lot better because the ingredients are all natural.

Alternatively, if you are not a fan of oiling your hair, you could soak up dry amla pieces in water overnight, then strain the amla out of the water.

You could use this as a final rinse after washing your hair. Doing this regularly is suggested to effectively reduce hair fall.

I hope this post helps you. Do keep reading for more such easy, effective homemade tips!
