You can also use Amla as a hair/face mask. Add hot water to a paste and for extra pampering, you can add your essential oil (argan/coconut/roses) for extra care. For use of a deep-acting hair mask keep well warm by means of plastic film and a heat cap. let this sit for half an hour, (see small round photo) wash the hair slightly and rinse it with apple-vinegar-cider. Result? Soft, healthy and shiny hair.
How do you use the Henna Brownie?
You grate the Brownie and mix it with lukewarm warm water into a paste. Apply the paste on clean washed hair and massage the scalp and hair lightly. Then you cover the whole with plastic foil and leave it for about 40 to 60 minutes. Then wash the hair with a mild shampoo. Do not wash the hair for 2 days for the ultimate effect.
I used dried Jasmine as a topping. Jasmine is very popular in aromatherapy because of its uplifting and relaxing properties. How beautiful she is!
Good to know: a customer gave me the tip to poke a ripe avocado through the Amla mixture. The effect? Almost magical .. gone dull, unmanageable and porous hair.
