View Full Version : Questions about Alma

February 19th, 2012, 09:25 PM
My hair is...interesting. The right side of my head grows a solid 2c ringlet. The left side of my head bounces between 1b and 2a.
I have read many places that alma enhances curl. But in my search for alma, I've found references to both the herb and the oil. Which do I use? I can find alma oil on amazon. The herb is proving more difficult to locate.
Once I have alma, how do I apply it?
Does it really make your hair darker, and if so, is there a way to counter that?

I'm really trying to love my hair, and if I could get it all doing the same thing I think that would go a long way to help matters.

You can get packets of powdered amla on ebay from india, also a few henna sites sell it (I think Hennasooq do) along with other Indian haircare herbs and such.
