Desert Shadow Organic Hair Treatment, Amla Shadow, a Deep Treatment for Bounce and Curls

FOCUS : Body, curl enhancing, strength and growth

Amla Shadow is a fantastic, certified organic, natural hair treatment that, with regular use, can improve the body and health of your hair and scalp. It takes just 30mins for a deep treatment or 1-2 hours for an intense treatment. It is a great cleanser and curl restorer (for people with natural wavy or curly hair) and gives a little* extra body to dead straight hair. The product contains naturally occurring Vitamin C and Antioxidants, which helps maintain scalp health.

Can be used as a quick treatment or intense treatment.

This Non-irritating 100% Certified Organic Treatment is ideal for those who have lost their curl or those with fine and limp hair.

* please note this product will not give curl to straight hair, it will only restore curls and waves of naturally curly hair.


Note from Flora & Fauna: You may think these products are fussy and you need time. Let me assure you that this isn't the case. I am someone with no time and I enjoyed this; it's easy, quite fuss free and your hair feels, and smells, amazing. There is a bit of preparation but it's the same as stirring a bowl of pasta - no effort and that comes from someone who doesn't cook a lot.   



Intense Treatment: 1-2 hours. Mix the whole packet with warm water or herbal tea. Mix thoroughly then apply to the hair and leave for 1-2 hours. Place a shower cap or cling wrap over your hair. Wash the paste out and enjoy beautiful nourished hair. 

Quick Treatment: 30 mins. Add 2-3 tablespoons of powder to an equal amount of natural conditioner. Mix and leave to sit for 5-10 minutes. Apply in the shower after shampooing and leave for 30 minutes before rinsing. 


At Desert Shadow, they only work with botanical ingredients so they use a variety of plants to create the different shades, although, every colour has a different formulation.

Ingredients: Embilica oficialis


Worth taking the time! Result is softest, shiniest

By: on 12 September 2016
I received a full box of Amla Shadow in the Spring Beauty Box. Something I'd never have thought to purchase myself - and reading the instructions, I thought it seemed way too fiddly and time consuming. I figured I'd give it a go though - at least the 'quick fix treatment'. That would take only half an hour, instead of the 1 to 2 hours needed for the 'intense treatment". I wasn't expecting much - and was prepared to write it off as an experiment. But wow! Such a surprise to find that, even after such a short treatment, my hair was shinier and softer than it had been for some time! I was delighted - and will definitely be looking at purchasing more when this box of product runs out. As I have short hair, I figure I'll get two or three more treatments out of it. So .. good value for me. And an example of how helpful the Flora & Fauna beauty boxes can be to help you discover some things you probably wouldn't have found - or considered using - otherwise.

Worth the effort

This treatment takes some time to do but I really liked the results. I've used the hair dye which takes a bit of prep but the results are great. And I found this the same. Would definitely use again.
