I have been combating dandruff due to my regular keratin treatments for years now.
Nothing I have tried, including dandruff specific shampoos, coconut oil and olive oil have completely fixed this issue.
My dandruff got increasingly worse as time has passed.
On one of my husband and daughter's recent trips to Morocco, they came back with a small bottle of this oil that was being used on my daughter's hair by her grandma.
I started putting this on my scalp as a spot treatment after washing my hair and noticed that despite the not so great smell, it was actually helping A LOT!!
I then came to the bible of all make up related reviews, MA, and realized this was indeed a BIG deal!
I also did additional research and learned that women in India have been using this for decades to treat dandruff, hair loss and to promote long, lush dark hair!!
I was so amazed by the discovery that I immediately googled the nearest Indian goods store and stocked up.
Ladies let me tell you that this is hair nutrition at the MAX.
My hair is dandruff free, rich and silky. Plus shedding has diminished SUBSTANTIALLY which is a welcomed added bonus
HOW I APPLY IT:
-Generously massage it into my scalp and ends after wetting my hair for enhanced absorption.
-Leave it on over night and wash it off in the morning
-OR put on a plastic cap and get under the hair dryer for 15 minutes
-This must be shampooed out 2-3 times to get it out completely
-The smell is the worst but it does not linger and totally worth the outcome

I purchased Panjami Herbal Hair Oil after seeing their ad in google and I read about the oil that it will give results within a month. So I just gave a try and it was unbelievable that as they promise, I got results in two weeks time. One good thing i like about the product is it is purely herbal. The dealer also has sent me a lot of reviews to my mail after my request. This made me confident to give a try at this product. I had two problems before that is hairfall due to dandruff and some white hairs. After using Panjami hair oil, dandruff has gone in no time and my white hairs also got converted to black hair. Really a nice product.I dont know about amla hair oil as I have not used it.Read here mystronghair.blogspot.com

I purchased Dabur Amla Hair oil a while back when I was in Egypt. first off , It was so cheap! I got 12 bottles for about five Canadian dollars.This product has sped up my hair growing process tremendously thanks to its excellent nourishing oils.Although ,sadly , I do have some complaints. The packaging makes it difficult to properly apply the product in your hands , it has a large opening that makes the contents spill out.Very annoying.Also , the smell is terrible.Lastly , I can only use it on days where I don't get out of the house because its so greasy.I would prefer something like a daily cream that contains the same nutrients.Overall , I will purchase this product again just because it does an excellent job of keeping my hair long and healthy.I would definitely recommend it to all girls who want strong,healthy hair.

I use Dabur Amla Gold. It contains the following ingredients in it:
Paraffinum Liquidum, Canola Oil, Palm Glycerides, Emblica Officinals (Amla) Extract in Canola Oil, Fragrance, t-Butyl Hydroquinone (Anti oxidant), Colors: D&C: Yellow No. 10, Green No. 6, Red No. 17
I find this product to be very moisturizing to my hair. It also leaves my hair nice and shiny looking. And, it also aids in keeping my hair healthy and strong as well.
I find the smell of the oil to be okay. It's certainly not the best or the worst that I would say. For me, it is completely tolerable.
Also, the price for this oil is quite cheap. I was able to purchase a 10.14 oz. bottle of this stuff online for 4.99 (w/o s& h costs included). And, even though it does have mineral oil listed as its first ingredient, it doesn't cause any problems for my hair at all. I use this oil as a pre-poo treatment for my hair. After about 1-2 hours or so, I cleanse my hair to remove the oil from my hair. Therefore, the oil is not be left in my hair in large amounts, which would cause buildup issues in such a case.
Overall, I highly recommend this product as well as the Dabur Vatika Oil as well. They are absolutely terrific for gaining the most shiniest, healthiest, and longest hair possible!

Aside from the really funky smell and the mineral oil, this did make my hair softer and shinier. Although I gotta tell you people that if you want a natural oil that smells lovely and isn't greasy then try argan oil. I'm using both argan and amla but I think I'll be sticking to argan oil from now on....it's just better on my hair and the Pro Naturals brand doesn't contain sulfates or silicone.

I had to bring down the rating due to the fact that this has mineral oil in it. I wish I could find a purer form of it. I used it with a deep conditioner and my hair was soft the next day. I could also do without the smell.

It really does smell terrible- somebody said old lady dollar store perfume. That is EXACTLY what it smells like! Aside from the horrible smell this worked very well to impart shine and manageability to my long, fine color-treated hair. This really did deliver results and for this I am willing to put up with the smell. What I am not willing to put with however, is the fact that this green oil was turning my blond highlights to an ugly golden brassy color. I threw this stuff away and started using the Dabur Vatika oil. That stuff is awesome. It works way better at conditioning my hair, its a clear oil and is smells kind of good. That oil is my HG after every color treatment I have done and I highly recommend. Bonus: its only $4!

Can you say cat piss? OMG this stuff stinks soooo bad. Someone said "dollar store old lady perfume", I wish!!! It is unbearable. I read great things about it so I decided to give it a try. Well I couldn't get pass the stench. I only used it once, so I don't know about hair growing powers, but it didn't do anything special for my hair. I just couldn't bear smelling like a cat pissed on my head. So I stopped.
Luckily, I found Virgin coconut oil wich is a gift from heaven! Makes my hair so soft, shiny, bouncy, strong, and thick! from the first application. And it smells divine. It transfromed my damaged hair immediatly.So why put myself through this torture if I don't have to.
If you're trying it for hair growth and can live with the smell, I say go for it. It might work. I wouldn't know because I just couldn't use it for that long. But if it is for healing, moisturizing, conditioning hair, go for the coconut oil. It works wonders, and you won't smell like a litter box.

This product never worked for my hair. The paraffin oil etc ingredients must have been the culprit.
Surprisingly, my grandmothers and great-aunts had always used this hair oil and had beautiful hair at the age of 80+. Must have been the diet, I guess.

I got the last bottle @ The Mideast Food Center downtown for five CAD. It's not Dabur oil tho, it's Nima brand amla oil. It's the same green color, but not thick at all. The smell is lovely. Sort of a fresh cut grass/exotic scent I really like. There is NO MINERAL oil in this product. I use coconut oil typically, but I'd read that Amla oil stops and prevents hair fall, and darkens hair :) I used to dye my hair black as a younger woman, and it suited me better than my current auburnish color. I tend to look washed out as I am olive skinned and my eyes are not a very dark brown, so I can't wait to see if this will in fact make my hair as dark and lustrous as those Indian lovelies and better suit my own very neutral coloring. Update in four weeks!

This stuff STINKS!! Nothing has ever smelled so bad that it stopped me from using it - until now. I've used the Aphogee protein treatment, and it stinks badly, but this is worse. I have 4 kids and 11 animals. I know stink. I can handle stink. But I cannot handle port-o-potty stink. This stuff smells EXACTLY like the stuff they put in the porta potties to cover up the other smells. Unfortunately, once you smell 2 scents together enough, they tend to mesh together into one. Not that is would smell good alone either. Every time I've passed a port o potty, it smelled just like this stuff.
Anyway, I put it on and left it for about 90 minutes, intending to leave it on all night, and couldn't take it anymore. I had to wash twice and the smell still didn't go completely away. And my hair? Exactly the same as it was before. Sigh. I don't know why, but every single thing that everyone else raves about does nil for me. Maybe I should start checking out all the low rated items for my HG's. On the other hand, any other oil I've tried - olive, almond, avocado, coconut, have all worked well.

I could not adore this stuff more. I have extremely thin, fragile hair that was constantly snapping and full of split ends (and I don't even straighten or blowdry!). One day a friend recommended Amla oil and after seeing how cheap it was on ebay, I decided it was worth a try. The first thing that stood out was the smell, it wasnt exactly pleasant, but it wasn't bad. I massaged it onto my scalp and combed it through to the ends. I then left it for about an hour before washing out it out with shampoo and conditioning as normal. The result was instant. Before Amla oil, when ever I combed my hair I would see a huge amount of hair fall left behind in my comb. Now there was nothing. Just a few drops massaged into my hair after washing it left it shiny and frizz free. Nine months and 3 bottles later my hair is thicker, long, and most importantly, barely a split end in sight. I will never give this stuff up.

First i was so sceptical about this hair oil, i kept on buying hair products that end up in the dumpster because i didn't do any miracles for my hair.
I have a problematic hair; curly (as in not good curls), split ends, dry and fizzy, not to mention hair loss, which caused by how religiously i use the straightening iron.
At first time use, i don't feel any significant changes on my hair, but i felt my hair is softer, right now i already use it about 6 times, the result is beyond satisfactory, not only it makes my hair shinier, it helps my hair growth, smoother, my hair texture is better, my hair shade is darker (i prefer jet black hair), and no split ends.
Different from any hair oil product that leaves your scalp sticky, this product feels tingly fresh on my scalp. The downside from this product is the cheap smell, i just put on a hair cap and wash it like usual (shampoo it directly without using water, rinse and shampoo again, preferably using non conditioner/clarifying shampoo to get rid of product buildups), and that annoying smell is a goner. I got compliments for my healthier hair which that is the fist time anyone would compliment my hair, so i would buy this product again in a heart beat!
ps: use spray bottle to apply, it's easier, less messy and you can control the amount of product you want to use on your hair.

I had Alopecia about a year ago and had a 3x3 inch bald spot on back of my head and my hair kept falling out to the point you could see my scalp.
Bought some Amla Juice and drank that for 6 weeks and it totally stopped my hair from falling out. I later found Amla Oil and Amla shampoo and started using it on my head.
Amla Juice can be bought at the India stores locally or online. It has a very bitter/white chalk taste to it but I was willing to try anything to stop my hair loss and it worked. It is also sold in tablet form and can also be bought online.
My sister loves using Amla powder and mixing it with a little water and leaves it on all day and it makes her fair feel thicker and more manageable too.
I also use NEEM soap bar on my head and that too is supposed to be very good for stopping hair loss and growing hair. The NEEM oil smells 50 times worse than the Amla Oil but it has many great uses. The bar of soap is not bad at all. It is actually very good for the skin, acne, psoriasis and any scalp problems too. Look it up on the internet.
Hope this helps others and what I found initiated the loss of my hair was that substitute sugar that is sold in yellow packages. My doctor did blood work and found I had ZERO Vitamin D and no protein uptake. Hair is made from protein. Also looked up that sugar and hair loss and was shocked at how many people write in about loss of hair due to using that sugar that is in all the diet products. Check it out and you will see hundreds of people saying that their head itched when they consumed it and that their hair started thinning and falling out.
Hope this helps others. I consumed about an ounce a day of Amla Juice for 6 week along with Ashwagandha and it stopped my hair loss.

I use the Amla Gold version and I absolutely love it. I picked it up for $2.99 at the local Indian grocery store. It has made my curly hair so soft, enhanced my curls, made it more manageable, and I have noticed much less breakage. I have very long curly hair, and I notice that a lot of products dry out my ends, but this really helps with that problem. I usually massage it into my scalp and also apply it to my ends before I was my hair. I add a small amount all over, focusing on my ends after I get out of the shower. (I let my hair air dry) I actually like the smell and don't mind it. If you are considering to try this, go for it.

I just tried this product last night and it is AMAZING. The smell is strong, but it does not bother me....a strong smell equals strong to me. I put it on my scalp and hair as a prepoo overnight. I put a plasting bag and scarf on over it.This oil is more runny/"watery" than my other my other oils. It absorbed completely into my hair overnight! There was not a drip anywhere or in the plastic cap. My hair was more manaegable to run my fingers through in the morning! Which really helped me, because I am stretching the back half of my hair. I was going to buy a rinse, because my hair is black, but I want it jet black. Well, I did not buy it, because I read on other reviews that it darkens your hair over time! 1 less product I need to buy! :) I will continue to use this product twice a week.

this oil left my hair very silky, smoothy and shiny, it does have a weird smell, not a bad smell....just strange, something like a cheap scent but it doesnt really bother me!
update: so my sister said today "you hair smells like baby poop...." i guess she was trying to say that it smells like something bad that someone tried to hide with some cheap baby wipes scent on the mixture. so...after i use this as a serum i just spray garnier fructis for sensitive hair and i believe (and hope!) that people cant feel the smelt because i really think that this improves my hair health somehow...(but i'm taking a lippie cause of the scent.)

My mom has used this mixed with mustard oil for most of her life and OMG her skin is like the smoothest (not sure if that is a word..) but the most silky soft skin I have touched. It's better than mine and she is 50! So that says a lot about the product. This is not only used for hair but for skin too! What she does is after taking a shower, she has this oil and mustard oil mixed into another bottle. She puts it on like lotion but doesn't drench herself in this obviously lol. And she does this every other day. You can use this for your hair but if you don't like the smell of it try almond oil (also found at most if not all indian grocery stores.) This is like no-to-little scent. It doesn't bother me at all. I think if you indian you can take the smell of amla oil. Also amla=gooseberry So, this is like olive oil (kinda) and olive oil is good to use on your hair! And it's like realllly cheap. You can get a 300-400mL bottle for like $4-5. It's so much better than other hair oil treatments. Also, using this is quite easy. Massage onto your scalp for a good amount of time and onto your ends and anywhere you want basically. And keep if in for about 1-2 hours or more if you want to or have time. And wash your hair as usual. Also, you might want to wash your hair twice because this can leave your hair oily if you don't wash it about 2 times. I only use oil treatments on my hair about once every 2-3 weeks. I'm giving it 4 out of 5 stars because I like to use coconut oil or almond oil more! But I dont mind using this either. I just like to smell of feel of other two more. Hope this helped! :)

AMAZING! I have very long hair but recently it would not stop falling out. So i bought this product (as an indian i've always been familiar with it) as i knew it could help. Immediately my loss of hair was minimized after just one use. The most effective way to use this is to put it into dry hair from root to tip and leave in all night and wash out the next morning. The smell is peculiar but for the result it is easily forgotten. My grandmother used these products most of her life and she always had a full and strong head of hair. I'm not going to be stopping anytime soon.

i love this product, it made my hair soft and shiny and bouncy! my hair had a air light feel to it which i liked since while walking it made me feel like i have a fan in front of my face...i'm using it to help my hair grow faster (yes hairdressers sometimes misunderstand and chop off half your hair) so 3 times a week for me until i get to a desired length then i will use it maybe once a week or every to weeks to keep it strong.
i do hate the smell but its totally worth it! also it may make your hair darker which is worth it as well although i have light brown-reddish hair!!
what i advice is to massage it onto the scalp and whatever is left you put on your hair, wait an hour (thats what is suggested on the bottle) then wash it, this way your hair wont be so greasy after since you only nourished the scalp and had just a little on the hair itself to make it shiny
i wash it twice with shampoo then condition my hair, but thats what i do with or with out the oil
its great and for the price and what it does, i can handle the smell!!!
