Shikakai, Acacia concinna, was traditionally used in India as a shampoo and hair conditioner. Shikakai means ‘fruit for hair’. The powder can be either mixed with water into a paste or made into a tea and used to wash your hair.
Key Benefits of Shikakai:
· Cleanses your hair without stripping its natural oils.
· Helps to prevent dandruff
· Has a low PH
· Helps to prevent hair tangling
· Promotes hair growth
· Good for flyaway hair
· Regular use leaves your hair silky, soft and smooth.
Directions: Mix shikakai in to a paste with water, apply all over scalp & hair, leave it on for a a few minutes & rinse off. Avoid getting Shikakai in your eyes. Shikakai can also be made into a tea or decoction which you rinse your hair with.
Shikakai can be mixed to your own recipes with other Ayurvedic powders. For example mix it with reetha powder to enhance the cleansing properties, or mix it with amla to give gloss and promote hair growth.
