Amla powder - Fruit Powder for Dye Release in Henna and Cassia

Amla gooseberry powder has great benefits for hair and skin.

Amla Benefits for Hair

Amla powder for hair can be mixed with henna when using indigo to dye your hair a cooler brown. When using amla with just henna it will tone down the red. Amla gooseberry powder strengthens the hair, reduces hair thinning, and promotes hair growth.

Henna and cassia will dye your hair most effectively when mixed with an acidic liquid (such as diluted lemon juice) or amla powder. Using an acidic liquid or our fruit acid powders gives the best color results and the color will not fade or go peculiar. In fact, the color will gradually deepen and look more natural.

How to use organic amla berry powder in cassia or henna dye recipe:

Mix 25g of Ancient Sunrise® Amla powder per 100g of henna or cassia, then stir in distilled water until the paste is the consistency of mashed potatoes. Let the paste rest at room temperature (68-72 degrees Fahrenheit) for 8-12 hours for best dye results.

Amla Benefits for Skin Care

Amla paste is also an excellent exfoliating, anti-oxidant, anti-bacterial astringent scrub for all skin types. A great diy facial at home! It does not have the alcohol and chemicals found in commercial facial scrubs. Amla has high levels of Vitamin C that break up the top layer of dead skin cells, and bits of amla seed, which gently exfoliates the skin and is gentle on dry skin.

How to use as a natural facial:
Mix a spoonful of amla Indian gooseberry powder and enough cool water to make a paste about the consistency of yogurt. Let that sit for 15 minutes. Scrub your skin with the paste, and wash the paste off after a minute.

Several of our clients have used Ancient Sunrise® Organic Amla daily on their skin to end acne outbreaks, to reduce the frequency of acne outbreaks, and fade the scarring more quickly.
