After I had my first baby, my hair went nuts. I ended up with a frizzy crown of baby hairs around my scalp that wouldn't lie flat no matter what I did. And the hair fall. Oh, the hair fall. I'd end up with handfuls of hair in the shower and my husband blamed me for the constantly clogged drain. After baby number two, I did some research on products that might help with the hair fall and stop the frizzy dryness - that's when I came across amla oil.For the past few weeks, I've been putting it through my hair an hour before my shower. The smell is horrible and my husband hates it but I'm going to keep going because it really is doing good things to my hair. My hair is much shinier and there is only a tiny bit of frizz around my scalp. The colour also seems richer and I'm not getting nearly as much hair fall as I did after my first baby.You need to shampoo really well at least twice to rinse it out - I made the mistake of only doing it once the first time and had to rewash the next day. I would really recommend this product and it has definitely improved the condition of my hair.

I bought this because a coworker who is from India recommended it to me for my thinning hair due to PCOS. I hand been using it for 3 weeks now, and I must admit I am very impressed. My hair is literally stopped coming out in clumps, no joke. Before I began using this oil the amount of hair that would fall out whole brushing would bring me to tears. I swear no where near as much comes out now. I don't know about regrowing hair because I have not been using it that long, but I will keep you posted. I also will continue to use this product religiously. The smell is pretty potent, but I dilute is down with half amla, and half coconut oil. I use it almost everyday. A little goes a long way. I also saturate my hair twice a week with it, and let it sit for an hour or more. Since I have very, very curly hair I only wash it once with shampoo, and then condition it. ♡

I've used this twice now in conjunction with other Ayurvedic hair products and I'm amazed at how quickly I saw results. I have long, straight, thick hair that is dyed black. Usually I have a lot of hair fall in the winter. I've seen a significant decrease in that. Additionally, my hair is taking half the time to air dry. Yes, this does have a very medicinal smell, but I don't find it bothersome. I use this and shampoo it out with Vatika Black Shine, and treat my ends with the amla leave in serum. Extremely impressed with all of these products, and the prices are so low.

Ah.. my good old amla oil by dabur. You know--at first I didnt like it much. Until I had a patch of hair gone from my temple bcuz idk why.. anyway-then I kept using it. And it grew back quickly. Now I use it daily after I shower to keep my hair in check and to ward off frizzies. I no longer use any hairspray or mousse. Maybe on rare ooccasion.. but now I just use this. My hair is once again in GREAT condition and I even put it in my 11 yr old son's hair(we Are native american--Navajo & Pima so his hair is past his waist. Anyway.. I think I ll use this forever. It works well and costs next to nothing. I am now all about middle eastern and Indian (from India) hair care.. that's why their women have such long beautiful hair in great condition :-)

I wasn't too impressed when I first started using this oil, until I realised that I wasn't applying the right way. I used to put some on my roots straight from the bottle and let it sit for 1 hour, but washing it off was a hassle and I always ended up with greasy hair. What I now do is this:- heat the oil up by leaving it out in the sun for a few hours- apply to roots and massage for 10mins so that it gets to the scalp- comb it to spread the oil evenly along the hair- braid it and let it sit for 1-2 hours- wash it off with lukewarm water only first, massaging the hair and scalp under the running water - this helps avoid oily hair afterwards- shampoo gently. You must remember that this is an Ayurvedic oil so for best results you have to use it with other Ayurvedic remedies. I use a neem-based shampoo and I'm always blown away by the results.Yes, the whole thing is time-consuming but a hot oil hair treatment is the perfect excuse to enjoy some 'me' time.I used to have lush dark brown hair but I started experiencing massive hair loss and thinning. After 1 month using this oil I can definitely see that my hair is getting back into shape. After one year of hair loss I'm starting to see growth around the temples, also my hair looks definitely healthier and the shine is back. And it's not just me, people have remarked on how much better it looks without knowing that I was using this oil. So my advice is be patient and persistent and you'll see the results!

Last week I've visited a local Asian food store which also sells cosmetic products. The lady there recommended me the Dabur Amla Gold Hair Oil for hair growth.What the package says: For long, soft & strong hair. Amla, helps strengthen hair from root to tips. Almonds, helps moisturize and soften hair. Henna, helps condition hair.My experience. First I used this as a leave in, but it left my hair greasy, so I decided to use it as a pre-shampooing. It contains mineral oils and silicones, so I was a bit dissapointed, I expected it to be more natural. I apply it about one hour before shampooing and I plan to use it once a week (I wash my hair twice).. It leaves my hair shiny and silky, but it is difficult to wash out. It is goof if you have very dry hair, it really moisturizes, but otherwise, I would recommend you a more natural product without silicones.I will probably repurchase it, or, it there are any, another product of Dabur which is silicone free.Love Emi <3

Loved using this product, not sure if it's the best oil out there but I was recommended this by several of my Indian friends. Smells beautiful, very easy to apply but you only need a small amount. Definitely made my hair shinier, possibly a little greasy as I sometimes used too much product ! I wouldn't say it made my hair grow, but it definitely appeared more healthy. I bought this of ebay very cheap, can't wait to buy my next bottle.

Another product from Dabur that I highly recommend. I use this as a pre-poo treatment, I leave it on my hair for an hour and wash and condition it out... it makes a difference in your hair and it smells nice. I've also used the jasmine oil and give it the same rating.

I totally hate this product and probably wouldn't buy it for myself. Why the four lippie review and the "yes" to repurchase? Well, it actually does work.I'm of Indian heritage so I'm familiar with our traditions of hair oiling. There is also an obsession in the Indian world with hair breakage and shedding (or "hairfall"). While I prefer using another Dabur product (the Vatika hair oil) or other Ayurvedic based coconut oils, my sister and mother have started using the Amla oil as their hair treatment and are staunch defenders of this product.My sister uses a smaller bottle from an Indian grocery store; I think she paid about $3-5 for it. For that same price, in India we got a 500 ml bottle, no joke. My sister says it makes her sometimes color- and chemically-treated hair much softer and shinier. For my mom, it makes an even more dramatic and important difference. My mother has always had really, really thin hair due to a combination of genetics and really poor health. You can see her scalp in certain areas. Additionally, she went gray at a young age (again, poor health). After using the amla oil, some of her hairline has been restored, and some of her white hairs have turned into a darker steel gray color. While she doesn't have the thick hair my sister and I have, it's still a noticeable improvement--this has been the nicest her hair has been in about 20 years.I've used it occasionally myself when I was shedding more than usual, and believe me, this WORKS. I just have a few issues with the product myself, which is why I'll never buy a full bottle myself (I'll just sometimes use my sister's or mom's bottle). First, the cap on the bottle is enormous and you can't control the amount that comes out. I guess this can be remedied easily by changing the bottle. The second issue is that this contains mineral oil, which I try to limit. Mineral oil isn't necessarily bad for hair, but for my hair, a really high amount means it can't be washed out, yet doesn't get absorbed, preventing all my moisture from entering. In this sense I believe that the export quality ones are inferior to the bottles in India--the Indian ones have more vegetable oil content, while many of the export quality ones have only mineral oil and amla. The third, and most important for me, is that this oil smells like rotting vegetables to me and my father. My mom and sister say they can't smell anything. While it is far too stinky for me to ever buy, if you have a hairfall issue, don't let smell bother you, because it does go away after shampooing. It's just for me, I oil overnight, or during the entire day, so I can't use something that makes me want to gag that long.If you are in the mood to try other oils, my two other favorites are the previously mentioned Dabur Vatika oil, and the Dhathri Herbal Hair oil (this one is harder to find; to date I've only found it in India, but I have friends that claim they've seen it in Indo-Pak stores in the US).

I decided to use Amla as a pre-poo treatment for my hair. Like others have already pointed out there is a distinct smell but it doesn't bother me. It actually reminds me of incense. If it's too bothersome for you, you could try adding some drops of lavender oil. I found the opening of the bottle inconvenient so I emptied it into a spray bottle instead. This made it much easier to operate. I also found the color of the oil (a dark green) a little off putting. I left it on for an hour as instructed. I recommend washing this out more than once and using a conditioner afterwards. I didn't and my hair turned out quite dry and limp. It hasn't darkened my color although my hair is pretty dark to begin with anyway. As of right now I'm not overly impressed with the results but I'm going to keep using it for at least another month and I will update again soon. Edit: I've tried my best to stick it out but I've come to the conclusion that this isn't the right oil for me. My hair doesn't look shiner or healthier and I'm very disappointed. I could put up with the smell but the final straw for me was the static it produced. Big thumbs down.
