Organic Shikakai Powder
About: Shikakai, also known as Acacia Concinna, is a fruit-bearing tree found in Asia. Shikakai is derived from the Hindi word "shikakai," which translates to "fruit for the hair." The fruit of the Shikakai tree is dried and ground into a fine powder for various uses, including hair care, skincare, and as a natural cleanser. Shikakai powder is a traditional herbal remedy for hair and has been used for centuries in India as a natural hair care product.
Uses: Shikakai powder is an all-natural and chemical-free substitute for shampoo and other hair care products. It is hypoallergenic, making it suitable for those with sensitive skin. Shikakai powder can be used as a shampoo and conditioner, promoting healthy hair growth while preventing dandruff, lice and other scalp issues. Its natural properties help nourish the hair and scalp, making it soft, shiny and manageable. Shikakai powder can also be used as a body wash, face wash and for treating skin conditions such as acne, eczema, and psoriasis. Its antibacterial properties help treat skin irritations while keeping the skin moisturized and healthy.
Usage: To use Shikakai powder as a shampoo, mix it with water to create a paste and apply it to the hair and scalp. Massage gently for a few minutes and then rinse thoroughly with water. Shikakai powder can also be mixed with other natural ingredients such as amla powder, reetha powder and henna powder to create a nourishing hair pack. It can also be used as a natural cleanser for dishes and clothes. The powder can be stored in an airtight container and reused until it loses its efficacy. Shikakai powder is an eco-friendly and sustainable alternative to chemically-laden hair care products, and its use promotes healthy living and sustainable lifestyles.
