20g-30g: For Short Hair
40g-60g: For shoulder length hair (medium size hair)
70g-100g: For waist length hair (long hair) Take required amount of powder as per hair length as mentioned above. Add Shikakai Powder to warm water to in the ratio of 1:3 (1 part of amla powder and 3 parts of warm water). Adjust the quantity of water as required to achieve a yoghurt or ketchup like consistency. Paste should not be too thick or too thin.
Application: Starting at the roots, apply the paste to hair immediately after mixing. Grey hair may require a heavier application of paste. Use the enclosed shower cap to cover hair after paste is evenly distributed.
Finish: Wait atleast 60 minutes after application of paste. If a darker colour is required, leave the paste on for a longer period of time. It is safe for paste to remain on hair for 2-3 hours. Heat can also be applied with a hair dryer during this time to intensify results.
Rinse: After 60 min or or more as desired, rinse hair with running water until the water runs clear. No shampoo is needed.
