Shakakai adds shine and softness, gives you stronger,/thicker hair, delays grey hair, fights dandruff, soothes your hair. Shikakai gently detangles hair, soothes your head, and also prevents dry scalp. According to my findings, I found that Shaikakai helps to heal minor wounds and strong enough to get rid of hair lice.
Ultimately, Shikakai (Acacia Concinna) even though does not lather, it gently cleans the hair without stripping it of its natural oils. It’s also a great conditioner, and helps to reduce scalp dryness and makes hair soft and bouncy. Shikakai is rich in vitamin C and many essential phytonutrients that nourish the hair follicles and promote hair growth.
How to use:
You can make as a paste(you can add powders like fenugreek, amla, reetha for a shampoo pack etc), with warm water. Cover and leave for 1hour or more then apply on hair and scalp. Cover for 30-45mins then rinse out, proceed to deep conditioning.
