Pure Shikakai Powder. Shikakai known as, “fruit for hair” is used as a mild cleansing shampoo with a naturally low pH. While it doesn’t produce the amount of lather a sulfate-containing shampoo would, it is an excellent cleanser for the hair. It doesn’t strip hair of natural oils and it also acts as a detangler, so usually it doesn’t need to be followed up with a conditioner. However, traditionally, prior to washing the hair, the user massages the scalp with coconut oil or castor oil. Shikakai is also known to promote hair growth by nourishing the scalp at the glandular level. It also can strengthen hair roots. (This is good news for anybody transitioning from a chemical perm or relaxer to natural hair). It is rich in vitamin C and vitamin D, along with other nutrients that nourish the hair follicles and promote hair growth. It can be used by itself or mixed with other natural ingredients in powder form, along with water to form a paste that is then applied to the hair.

4 of 5 Nice! March 12, 2012
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Jacksonville, FL United States  
I ordered Shikakai powder and it is really good for my hair. I wash my hair with it and oil my hair with it.

The only thing I don't like about the product is part of the packaging. The lady on the picture has bad hair (thin and weak looking) and looks a bit like a vampire. In my humble opinion, an indian woman with thick hair, a flower, or  the shikakai fruit itself should be used as the main picture.

Other than that the product is great!

Kind regards,

Satisfied Customer
