Amla Legend Billion Hair Potion Review: Ingredient Discussion

I was sent the Amla Legend Billion Hair Potion to review by Soft Sheen Carson.  It promises fuller, thicker hair growth but a true review would take weeks, if not months, of consistent use before I would feel comfortable commenting on those promises.  However, what I decided to do is discuss the ingredients found within the product.  I have stressed the importance of understanding ingredients over the description and claims of a product time and time again.  Had I not been sent this item, I would approach my decision to purchase it the same exact way – by examining the ingredients and determining for myself whether or not it would suit my hair.  So let’s get into the discussion!

Amla Legend Billion Hair Potion Review

There are three ingredients found within the Billion Hair Potion that Soft Sheen Carson chose to highlight.  Of course, amla oil since the name of the product line is Amla Legend.  As we discussed yesterday, Amla has a host of benefits for the hair including thicker hair growth, grey hair prevention, and anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties.  The other two ingredients are ceramide and arginine.  Ceramides are a lipid component which work to hold the cuticle of the hair shaft together, synthetic ceramides have been shown to repair hair damage and are especially effective for relaxed hair.  You can read all about the benefits of ceramides here.  Lastly, arginine is an amino acid. Amino acids are the “building blocks of protein” and since hair is comprised of protein, it makes sense that it would be beneficial.  However, I went a step further to learn why of all the amino acids that exist (there are ~ 20 amino acids), arginine specifically was selected.  It turns out arginine is known to increase nitric oxide (NO) which causes blood vessels to dilate, increasing blood flow to the scalp which promotes hair growth.  In addition, arginine has been shown to reduce hair damage during bleaching and hair dyeing process.  So, after learning about the ingredients I have to say I am impressed with the amount of research that had to have gone into the development of the Amla Legend Billion Hair Potion and I applaud Soft Sheen Carson!

    Do you have the oil in your hair on the picture?

      It is actually not an oil in the sense of being applied to the length of your hair, it is a scalp treatment. The hair in the photo is a wig (link below if you are interested) but I did apply the product to my scalp. Thanks for reading!

    I’m curious to hear what you think of this product after using it for a while and how you end up I corporations it into your regimen.

      I decided to come back and answer this comment…to be real, I haven’t been using it consistently just yet – mainly because I have been using a growth aid, but I intend to once I return to protective styling this summer.

    I’m shocked that “PHENOXYETHANOL” is the 6th ingredient. Its a synthetic preservative and test have shown it mutates skin cells. I like the concept they have with the amla oil & amino acid but I rather buy 100% Amla Oil for the same price than this tiny bottle with amla as the last ingredient. Overall, I think individuals would get the same results without the amla oil in it.
