Indian gooseberry, called amla for hair care products, has a long history in South Asia of contributing to natural hair remedies. Using the oil extracted from amla for hair is a time honored tradition, as it naturally contains a lot of the molecules and chemicals that synthetic brands are attempting to mimic.
For example, for those who suffer from hormonal hair loss, whether due to PCOS or thyroid imbalances, amla for hair loss treatments is a viable option. It works by inhibiting the molecule 5-alpha reductase, which usually metabolizes one of the biggest culprits in male and female pattern baldness, 5 alpha-dihydrotestosterone.
Think about it like a forest fire. (Except, unfortunately, your hair can’t grow back as easily!) The 5 alpha-dihydrotestosterone, a natural byproduct of the aging process, is a bit like the accelerant poured all over the fire, but the reductase is the match. Using our product, which takes advantage of the properties of amla for hair, is like taking the matchbox away. And thus, you get to save your hair!
