According to various researchers, amla oil is a powerful inhibitor of 5- alpha-reductase. The medication can also be used to treat male and female baldness. This is so good for hormonal hair loss due to PCOS and thyroid imbalances.

4. Helps to balance a flaky scalp.

Vitamin C is the key ingredient that helps a building block for the hair. It helps to remove the layers of dirt and grime and act as a clarifying agent for the scalp. The scalp will be able to absorb nourishing hair products when it is clean. Amla hair packs also work as a scalp exfoliator. Apply amla powder mixed with curd on the scalp and rinse off after 20 minutes. To make it more effective use the amla hair pack after you oil the hair. Amla has cleansing properties when mixed with curd and it helps in conditioning the hair thus there is no need to use separate shampoo products. These hair packs are very effective for treating dandruff and other scalp related issues.
