Qhemet Biologics Amla Oil Nourishing Pomade

Qhemet Biologics Amla Oil Nourishing PomadeWhat Qhemet Says:

The Amla fruit, traditionally macerated in either pure Coconut or Sesame oil, yields what is known as Amla Oil, a traditional hair care panacea used in Indian hair care traditions for centuries. Ayurvedic medicine recommends the use of Amla Oil to improve the condition and health of the hair and scalp. It possesses natural color retention, hair retention, dandruff control and follicle strengthening properties. Softens and conditions the hair and scalp and supports growth.

  • 100% Vegan, 100% Natural!
  • Has a light, natural citrus scent.
  • Does not contain mineral oil, lanolin, proteins, silicones, artificial fragrances, dyes or parabens.

Ingredients:Vegetable Thickener, Ayurvedic Amla (Sesamum indicum Oil and Emblica officinalis Extract), Pure Coconut (Cocos nucifera) Oil, Essential Oil Blend.

Directions: Part hair and spread a thin layer directly to a clean, dry scalp. Use a small amount on edges and ends to smooth, soften and add sheen. Use also as a styling aid for braids, twists, locs and coils.

What Nik Says:

Two snaps, a twist, and a kiss! It was sent to me a few weeks ago in a box with several other products from Qhemet (which I’ve yet to try because it’s a rare day when I wash my hair). My eyes were immediately drawn to the Amla Pomade because of it’s potential to become my new edge smoother, shine enhancer, or twist-out product. Y’all know I’m always on the lookout for the next best thing… or at least the next thing. I’m a PJ, what can I say?!

I’ve been using the pomade to re-twist my hair at night and to seal my ends. The consistency is similar to old school hair grease- – thick, but thins out when you rub it between your fingers. I scrape a little out, emulsify in my hands, and apply a thin layer to my hair. It’s non-greasy, easy to work with, and has a delightful lemony fragrance. I also love the fact that it contains amla! Dare I say I like it more than Oyin’s pomade? It doesn’t have that gritty texture, and leaves my hair soft, very shiny, and smooth.

Bottom Line: I love everything about this pomade except the price ($16/4oz). Luckily, a little goes a long way.

    I love this pomade for twists on wet and dry hair! It makes my hair shine like nobody's business!

    I like the Amla pomade. It is GREAT for smoothing edges. That's all I've really used it for. I bought products for myself and my 3yr old cousin. We have totally different hair but all of the products worked well. I just don't use them alot b/c of the price–the jars are so small! The detangler works especially well on my cousins' hair too.

    My favorite QB product is the Egyptian Wheatgrass Cleansing Tea. Excellent cleanser! And it smells really good too.

    I think they are a bit pricey and the need to improve their customer service. If you are that pricey and you should at least have great costumer service. Tried it once and was not impressed to re buy

    I've been wanting to try this particular product forever, but Qhemet's pricing has made it a bit prohibitive. (So, I'm waiting for a sale!) I will definitely be trying this though, since I was hoping this would be like grease, and this review confirms it is! What can I say? I grew up using grease, and even though I "know better" now, I still want something good for my hair and scalp to fill the grease void. Thanks, Nikki!

    I LOVE the Amla and Olive Heavy Cream!!!

  • Cynthia says:

    I am definitely a fan of both the amla and the teatree pomade. To the poster that answered…they are roughly the same consistency. I use the teatree and grapeseed after i wash my hair. I part my hair into sections and apply it along my roots and massage it into my scalp.

    I use the amla to smooth my edges and to seal in moisture on my twists (i typically wear two strand twists for a couple of weeks). I usually spray it with whatever spritz is on hand (i think i used oyin's greg juice this morning), after spritzing, i take about a quarter sized amount and emulsify it in my hands then run it along my twists and its not greasy at all, nor does the smell make me sick after a while.

    i'm a qhemet biologics fan tried and true…

    I have tried it and no. I wasn't really a fan of the balm… a little too sticky for me. This is neither sticky nor greasy. LOVE it!

  • socialitedreams says:

    wow, sounds lovely….i adore qhemets…..have you tried the honey olive balm, is it similar to that?


  • Naptural_ray1 says:

    I love anything and everything made by Qhemets!!!

  • Quite says:

    I love the pomade too! I've never used by itself to twist because of the cost..I may try though..

  • Moni says:

    Does anyone know how this compares with the grapeseed oil pomade? Thanks!
