Shikakai – The Secret Ingredient to Shiny and Healthy Locks of Hair
One thing many of us would have heard in many shampoo ingredients is the term Shikakai. However, have you stopped thinking about why so many shampoos are promoting their use of this particular product?
Well, it is because of the numerous benefits it holds. Shikakai isn’t a new herb on the market but is a statement beauty secret from your grandma’s dresser. If you are someone who has heard their grandparents rave about Shikakai, we are sure that you would be interested in learning why it is an active part of all shampoos.
Shikakai Powder: Natural Hair Care Essential
Why Are So Many Shampoos Use Shikakai as an Active Ingredient?
Shikakai is one of the significant parts of many shampoos; however, do you know that using Shikakai powder directly might be even more beneficial. Here is why:
1. Fights Dandruff
The itchy white scalp, which sometimes can be overbearing, isn’t liked by anyone. Dandruff is a nuisance, but shikakai and its anti-fungal properties might work like magic in reducing it.
2. Stronger and Thicker Hair
Shikakai directly works on the roots and helps strengthen them. This eventually helps the present hair become stronger and the new growth to come out thicker too.
3. Delays Grey Hair
Premature greying is relatively more common than we’d like to think, but with Shishakai, it isn’t much of an issue. This herb helps delay greying and eventually helps you flaunt those youthful locks for a long time.
4. Removes Hair Lice
Hair lice can happen to anyone, which isn’t something to be ashamed of. However, getting rid of them fast should always be a priority. Shikakai will help in this task.
Shikakai for Hair
Mix with warm water using approximately 20-30g of Shikakai powder (depending on the length of hair) and blend into a smooth paste. After washing your hair, apply the paste to your hair and scalp using your fingertips, ensuring all areas are covered, especially the roots. Leave the paste on for 15-20 minutes and wash throughly with warm water.
