Shikakai podi, Shikakai powder - Buy Online
Shikakai is an Indian hair care product traditionally used as a natural alternative to other shampoos and detergents. It is the fruit of an Ayurvedic medicinal plant known as ‘Acacia concinna’. In English, Shikakai is literally translated as “fruit for hair”. Fruit pods, barks of the plant and the leaves are dried and made into a brown coloured shikakai powder. These are applied as a paste to the hair, massaged into the hair scalp and then washed off with warm water. It is believed to have a positive effect against dandruff and is good for hair growth. Even though this natural product does not produce the amount of lather as the artificial shampoos, it is considered as a good cleanser.
