Amla Oil DIY

Do you want healthier looking softer thick hair? Here's how with my quick and easy DIY hair conditioner tutorial.

To make amla oil:

Combine 1 tablespoon of amla powder with 5 tablespoons of coconut oil in a stainless steel pan.

Place the pan on the lowest heat setting, stirring occasionally. Do not allow the oil to boil or even simmer.

After around 5 minutes or so, the oil will begin to emit a musky aroma and you will start to see tiny bubbles forming in the oil itself. As soon as that happens, remove the oil from the heat, cover the pot, and allow the oil to steep for 24 hours.

Strain the oil with a fine tea strainer and pour into a sterilized glass jar (if possible use one that has an amber tint, as it will block the most UV light).

Can amla oil make my hair healthier?

Amla oil can also be left on the scalp overnight for deep conditioning. If used in this way, wear a shower cap and cover your pillows with towels to prevent staining. Amla oil can have a strong, musky odor, so you may want to use it sparingly if you don't plan to rinse it out right away.


Some people will make their own hair product by mixing amla powder with warm water to create a paste-like cream. When applied to dry, clean hair, the mixture is thought to increase the hair's softness and thickness.
