Shikakai Powder for Healthier Natural Hair
Also known as the hair fruit, shikakai is a prized hair care ingredient that has been used as a natural alternative to chemical-based shampoos for years. Shikakai pods are rich in saponins which act as natural foaming agents and in ayurvedic cultures, the shikakai powder is used for promoting luxuriant hair growth because of its excellent cleansing properties. Using this shikakai powder for hair 1 lb can help you prevent premature graying and also delay your hair’s natural graying process. Washing your hair with shikakai powder paste before you dye it will allow your hair to absorb the dye better.
The Perfect Natural Hair Conditioner
This ayurvedic herb is very rich in flavonoids, alkaloids, and various plant acids to nourish and strengthen hair roots, and to promote healthy hair growth. The low pH of shikakai matches with the human hair’s mild pH level and it gently cleanses hair without stripping it of natural oils. You can use shikakai as a natural hair wash to help clean off excess sebum and dirt from sensitive scalps or to control dandruff. The shikakai hair treatment is particularly perfect for individuals that are allergic to chemicals in regular shampoos or simply want to switch to natural cosmetics.
Gently Detangles Hair
If you have curly hair and you don’t want rough-combing to damage your follicles, shikakai is a great way to detangle your hair softly without causing any pain after a shampoo. Simply run your fingers through your hair while rinsing with shikai conditioner.
Simply mix 2-3 teaspoons of shikakai powder in water and make a paste. Make thin layers all over your hair and apply the paste to your roots, then wait for 10-15 minutes. Wash your hair with shampoo and massage your scalp in the shower. If you have long hair, take 4-5 spoons of shikakai powder.
