So not too long ago I tried amla powder on my hair and it was a nightmare! I mixed it with yogurt, oils, and water as it stated on the back of the bottle. I even let it sit for about 1 hour. I put it on my hair and I had the hardest time washing it out! It was like little mud pellets stuck all through out my hair, which took wash after wash to get it all out! Sheesh…maybe I should have just tried amla oil instead :-/.

Benefits of amla powder and oil: It is derived from the Indian gooseberry and is very nourishing for the hair and scalp. It strengthens the hair, adds shine, and is said to promote hair growth, prevent premature graying, and hair loss.

What did I do wrong? Has anyone tried amla powder?
