What 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.

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.
