Most amla oils are really coconut, sesame or mineral oil infused with gooseberry entrails. This oil appears to be oil from the actual gooseberry. Amla oil is said to reverse grey... view moreing, but I haven't used it long enough to see that benefit.
The texture of this amla oil is very runny. The scent is earthy, not overwhelming. I've been using this oil to juice up my conditioners and to moisturize my greys. Greys like to poke out. This is a moisturizing oil that reduces my frizz so that my hair lies down nicely. It also makes my hair shiny, which very few oils are able to do. view less
