The use of oil for hair treatment is not a secret. Everyone knows it. In my family, we used to use coconut oil and aloe vera juice for the hair masks. Now I married to my husband and he is an Indian. Well as we all know Indian they use even more oil for their hair, not only for treatment but also for daily basis.
One day my husband bought a bottle of hair oil from an Indian grocery store near to our home. The first time I saw this hair oil I was so skeptical because it has been in the packaging and must be added some kind of preservative and so on, but until now I didn’t find the word “paraben” or “alcohol” or other kinds that indicate chemical to preserve the shelf date. So here what I get from this hair oil.
AMLA HAIR OIL
In Indonesia the fruit amla we call it cermai, we only use this fruit for munching but in India, they use it for everything, from food to hair oil. I was so surprised how do they extract the oil from this fruit. Amla is not a big fruit, the size is around the same as cherry or smaller like blueberry.
the brand named Patanjali
Patanjali is a brand from Baba Ramdev. He is a guru as well as a yogi from India. I adore him so much. He such a great example of a human being. I wish I could come to his workshop one day. So his brand all about ayurvedic and helping people to get a product at an affordable price.
As this hair oil is from Patanjali and I just trust it. I always believe in nature for treatment and remedy before I come to the doctor.
Greasy hair no more
In the packaging, it claims to strengthen the root, prevent hair fall, prevent grey hair, and prevent the split ends. From all of the claims, I still don’t know it is true or not, because my root is not weak, my hair fall is not much, I have some grey hair but only one here and there, and I don’t have split ends. So if I say the claim is true, I don’t experience it yet. But, the most thing that I see so differently is my hair not greasy anymore.
I used to have greasy hair and it will be flat, thanks to my oily face that spreading the oil to my hair roots. After I use this oil my hair can stand 2 days without washing and still have some volume in it. I was thinking something change to my hair, and then I realize this happened after I applying Patanjali kesh kanti amla hair oil regularly.
THE SMELL IS SO FRESH
The first time I smell the oil it was so strong. I almost smell it more like strong sulfur, it’s kind of like pee but not so smelly, I don’t even know how to explain it.
After the hair washed and dried, the strong smell before becomes lighter and fresher, I don’t know how to describe the kind of fresh it is but it is so fresh. I feel like I wanna smell it all day long.
The fresh smell can last for so long, for me, it lasts around 3 days just because I will reapply the oil to my hair and wash my hair again. I wish I knew this Patanjali kesh kanti amla hair oil from long ago. I really love the smell of it. It is fresh yet relaxing.
How to apply Patanjali kesh kanti amla hair oil
Well, to apply the amla oil is not hard but you need to be fast, because Patanjali kesh kanti amla hair oil is kind of like liquidy, so sometimes it can drip to your forehead. But because the texture of the oil is liquidy, so it’s quickly absorbed by the hair.
To make the applying process easier, faster and not wasting any of the oil here how I do it. First I segment my hair my using comb to make the oil reaches my scalp easier.
And then I pour a small amount of the oil as fast so it won’t be too much.
After that, I massage my scalp, so then the oil can penetrate even more to my hair roots.
And keep repeating the process until all of the hair and scalp is covered in oil like a mask.
After all the applying process is done, the next step is to let the oil absorbed into the hair. I let it still overnight, and then I wash my hair the next morning. But if you can’t leave it overnight, leave it thirty minutes before you wash your hair. If that too is impossible you can apply the oil even whenever you want, not as a hair mask but as a hair perfume.
I also apply a small amount on my hair after I wash it to calm down my hair so it will not be frizzy.
Taking care of ourselves is easy and affordable actually if we are always grateful for what we have. Hopefully, this post helps you to find a new natural product that is affordable and relaxing like Patanjali kesh kanti amla hair oil.
