Our organic shikakai will cleanse and condition your hair and leave you with a healthy scalp. Shikakai is the name used in India to refer to the powder from the crushed pod of the fruit of the Acacia Concinna tree, a small shrub like tree which grows in the driest regions of India. Shikakai means, literally, “fruit for the hair”. This flattering nickname is a result of the fruits’ reputation as a superior hair cleanser, with a natural low ph that respects the hairs’ natural oils, leaving hair soft, shiny and gloriously clean. It is also due to its age old reputation for promoting hair growth and preventing dandruff. It is suitable for the most sensitive scalp.
