Shikakai Powder 100g

Wild-crafted Shikakai, a pod-like fruit from the Acacia concinna tree, grows in the warm dry plains of southern and central India. Used for centuries and traditionally known as ‘fruit for the hair’, this natural, mild cleanser is used to wash and gently condition hair without excessively stripping hair of its natural oils. Shikakai is renowned for its beneficial properties and naturally low pH.

    This powder is very good for oily hair. I mix it with aritha for a good clean. It is quite difficult to wash out but it is brilliant other than that.
