Our Organic Amla powder is from the Rajasthan region of India.  The amla crop is from the 2015 harvest (2016 harvest will be available in October).  Our organic amla powder is best used with henna and indigo for natural hair dye, or by itself for conditioning and exfoliant treatments.  Please keep in mind, amla DOES NOT have a dye in it and CANNOT dye your hair.  Your order includes instructions on use for natural hair dye. 

Each packet is vacuum packed in a clear bag, then sealed with a foil bag on the outside.  This prevents the amla from being exposed to too much light and air.  You should store the amla powder in a cool, dark place, like a closet or medicine cabinet.  Contrary to modern belief, DRY amla or other herbal powders should NOT be stored in the fridge or freezer, as it increases exposure to moisture and the chance of freezer burns. 

Our organic amla powder is recommended for multiple uses. 

Natural Hair Dye:  Organic amla powder that is finely ground, making it the perfect choice for using this powder for natural hair dye.  Fresh amla powder, from the 2015 crop (2016 crop available in October), that is finely ground means the powder does not contain twigs, sticks, or leaves.  We recommend that you gently sift the amla powder before mixing in order to break up clumps of amla due to vacuum seal.  You should use amla by itself or with henna to Naturally Dye your Hair, by toning down the redness of the henna.  Please remember, amla CANNOT help dye the hair--it will only help tone down the redness of henna dye in your hair.  It can also be used as an added conditioner in your natural hair care treatment, or by itself as a conditioner for the hair, or a natural facial and body exfoliant. 

Our organic amla powder will help condition your hair, and help you tone down the red tones of henna when used for natural hair dye.  Mix the powder with warm water, then mix it with your other natural hair dye pastes.  Apply the mixture to your hair and leave it in your hair for 4-8 hours or overnight.  Organic amla powder used in conjunction with henna is a safe, natural and organic alternative to chemical hair dyes.  More information on natural hair dye can be found here:  Naturally Dye your Hair
