Amla Oil (Gooseberry) Can Help Your Hair

Amla oil (gooseberry) is a super oil for growing long, strong, healthy hair because it helps grow hair with its concentration of Vitamins A and C, while fighting multiple culprits of hair loss with its antioxidant antiaging and antimicrobial properties.

Alma oil is safe to use on any type of hair and comes from the seeds of the Indian gooseberry, scientifically known as Phyllanthus emblica. You can eat the gooseberries themselves (they make a delicious pickled snack), or use amla powder, which is one of many herbs that are good for healthy hair.  To get the full benefits you need to use the oil on your hair and scalp.

And it’s packed with hair healthy nutrients in the oil made from its seeds including:

These work to help amla oil provide you with the following hair benefits.

Regulating Hair Growth and Strength

The fatty acids in amla oil won’t penetrate your hair shaft like argan or olive oils, but thanks to the concentration of omega-6 fatty acids, which have been shown to stimulate hair growth, amla oil can be a go-to oil to help you grow luxurious locks.

And as you grow your hair, amla oil helps you fight breakage by increasing your hair’s elasticity and tensile strength even for bleached hair. In addition to making hair stronger, amla oil can help combat hair loss by inhibiting your body’s ability to convert testosterone into DHT, which is a significant factor in both male and female pattern hair loss.

Hair Protection

According to this study from Frontiers in Pharmacology, the spectrum of phenolic compounds along with the vitamin C and vitamin A give the gooseberry fruit and oil from the seeds antioxidant, antimicrobial, antibacterial, and anti-inflammatory properties. Each of these help your hair in the growth phase including Vitamin C’s role in keratinocyte production. As a bonus you get antiviral, antidiabetic, and other protective properties.

The gooseberry fruit doesn’t make a good juice like oranges do for Vitamin C, but it will give you more vitamin C than an orange which helps protect hair against free radicals and oxidative damage which leads to issues like hair loss and premature graying. Plus, the high dose of vitamin A helps your body regulate the hair growth cycle and also helps your body produce sebum, your hair’s natural protectant.

Promotes Follicle Health

Alma oil also helps keep your scalp and hair follicles healthy by fighting inflammation, which in addition to oxidative damage, is one of the leading contributors to hair loss and thinning. And the antimicrobial properties of the oil help fight inflammation by keeping bacteria from thriving on your scalp.
