General rule of applying amla hair oil:
1) Dry your hair and scalp completely. Make sure there is no sweat on your scalp.
2) Depending upon the length of your hair, talk amla hair oil in the bowl.
3) It can be used as hot oil or cold oil. Soak fingers in the oil and gently massage onto your scalp with your fingertips.
4) It is beneficial to keep it overnight and wash it with your favourite shampoo next day. If you are short of time, apply oil, wrap it with hot towel so as the oil gets absorbed quickly. After 30 – 45 minutes, you can proceed with the hair wash.

Usually Amla Fruit is either directly soaked in the base oil as mentioned above or dried powdered of amla fruit is infused in the base oil for sometime and the resulting oil is the amla oil. Here I have mentioned couple of recipes that can be prepared at home easily.
