I decided to do an Amla treatment on my hair, after reading CurlyNikki's post on it. I have used Amla in the past, but strayed away from it due to being introduced to other products. In the past, I usually make my amla oil this way:

However, today, I decided to just follow the package instructions:
Take required quantity of Powder, Add little water, mix well and make a thick paste.
I applied the Amla paste to my scalp, massaged my scalp, and then applied it to the length of my hair.
I covered my hair with a plastic cap and waited 45 minutes. After that, I rinsed it thoroughly under the shower. Then cleaned my scalp and hair with the old formula Elasta QP Crème Conditioning Shampoo; another oldie of mine.
When the residue of the Amla has been cleansed off my hair and the shampoo rinsed, I applied some Eden Bodyworks Cowash Conditioner on my hair to assist in soften it a little. The Amla makes your hair feel very soft. Do not use a Protein Deep Conditioner when using this Amla Paste.
Sidenote: I used the cowash conditioner, because I forgot to bring a rinse out conditioner to the shower with me.
For my deep conditioner, I used the SheaMoisture SuperFruit Complex 10-in-1 Renewal System Hair Masque and left it on my hair for an hour.
After rinsing, my hair felt strong and SUPER soft... like butta!!
