The tangy juice of Amla ensconced in the plump fruit with green and yellow hues marking its appearance is bound to make your eyes squint and tongues click when drunk 😛 But the potent storehouse of Vitamin C that it is, one cannot do away with it easily too given Vitamin C’s virtues in leaving one with lustrously shiny locks and gorgeously radiant skin 🙂 So, why should we be the next Khatron Ke Khilaadi? Instead of sipping it and making faces so weird that the person next to us would be compelled to enquire is everything is alright or not, why not let this elixir for hair run lusciously down our locks that is, simply massage our hair and scalp with Amla oil? 😉 So here goes my post today -Mooligaa Amla Hair Oil Review.
In fact, it is found that Amla fruit has more than 20 times vitamin C than orange fruit. This popular Ayurvedic approach to solve hair growth problems has been adopted by Indians for centuries. The sanskrit name is AMALAKI and the scientific name is Phyllanthus emblica. Amla oil when massaged works right into the shafts and roots of the hair. This helps to normalize blood supply to the hair thereby rejuvenating the hair.Another effect of Amla oil is its cooling effect on hair and scalp. It works right into the roots, soothes the scalp and puts the cells of the hair and roots in a relax mode. When applied on the scalp and left over night, you might just be lullabied by a good nights sleep! So, to enrich my scalp and hair with these bounties of Amla, one fine day I zeroed in on Mooligaa Amla Hair Oil. Mooligaa is the Tamil word for herbs. It is herbal skin and hair care enterprise based out of the picturesque Chennai, headed by the lovely lady- Mrs. Lakshmi Suresh 🙂 So yes, today I will review Mooligaa Amla Hair Oil. Lets get going.

My experience with Mooligaa Amla Hair Oil
Packed in a simple plastic bottle with a flip top cap which is already perforated, the packaging of Mooligaa Amla Hair Oil, to me is no nonsense, sturdy and hygienic. I do not find oils packed in glass bottles hygienic at all. They are highly fragile and prone to slipping. A plastic bottle surely is not cent per cent hygienic but oils cannot be packed in cloth/paper! Expecting it to be packed in a steel container would be a bit thick for the price one is paying.
The point I am trying to drive home is that even though the packaging is not fancy/aesthetic, it does not disappoint me. The input from me as far as packaging is concerned would be furnish all the information on the pack of the product such as-shelf life, price, date of manufacturing, etc. 🙂 All in all, there is room for improvement in the domain of packaging.
Mooligaa Amla Hair Oil has a medium to light texture. It is neither as lightweight as water nor as thick as some oils which stick to your hair like a long lost friend! The aroma is very faint, almost hard to notice but once heated and applied, the fragrance becomes somewhat noticeable. To me, aroma or no aroma is a non-issue. What matters is the output, that is, how my hair turns out to be.
I have waist-length jet-black hair (please don’t picture me as Rapunzel. Not everyone with long locks necessarily has gorgeous hair. Some have brooms hanging too 😛 ) I do not have any major hair woe to list except that my hair is dry and prone to split ends. I know for a fact that once your hair has split (due to iron & protein deficiency), it cannot converge back to the parent strand. You have to get them trimmed. There is no other option.
So, I didn’t expect Mooligaa Amla Hair Oil to do anything for my split ends. What I expected it to do was just to soften my dry- seemingly lifeless hair. I religiously heated up around 4-5 tbsp of Mooligaa Amla Hair Oil for a fortnight (twice a week), massaged my hair for around 5 minutes, tied them in a plait and went to sleep. The next morning, I applied a homemade hair mask of curd+ Etheric Rose petals powder for 1-1.5 hours. I then wash off my hair with cold water and apply a pea-sized amount of my Holy Grail shampoo- Bon Organics Herbal Shampoo.
I followed this regimen for two weeks- twitch a week and by the end of the two weeks, I felt my hair become more voluminous and noticeably shiny. I wasn’t expecting these two effects but frankly, if my hair’s condition has improved, who am I to complain? 😛
As far as softness is concerned, there is little improvement. There is not much to gloat about that but even with a little positive change in this domain, I am exultant with the fact that something has come this far for my dry hair 🙂 Maybe with time, it would throw much more noteworthy results as far as softness is concerned. One thing is for sure- If you want soft hair instantly, you have to devote your time and patience to it. This is an out-and-out herbal product with no mineral oil, petrochemicals and other such rubbish. It takes time to show results. I find it a great option for dry, excessively dry hair and also for those battling hair sans shine and volume?:)
Want voluminous and remarkably shiny hair? Go grab Mooligaa Amla Hair Oil. To get soft hair, be patient and stick to it for sometime.
