Shikakai translates to “fruit for the hair”. It is rich in antioxidants and vitamins like A, C, D and K which helps in keeping the hair healthy and shiny.
The cleansing powers of Shikakai Extract are a result of the high amounts of saponin, which clears away dirt and grime from the scalp, like a gentle astringent. It leaves behind a cool sensation that feels refreshing and leaves your scalp and hair feeling clean. It has a bit of lather and cleans hair beautifully thanks to its low pH, which won’t strip strands of their healthy, natural oils. That low pH makes it a great detangler without adding any feeling of heaviness to the hair. Shikakai is a natural astringent that strengthens the hair roots, promotes hair growth, and the plant’s saponins gently cleanse dirt and grime from the hair and scalp. Shikakai helps in retaining the youthfulness of black hair colour naturally and prevent hair from premature greying. Shikakai powder absorbs easily into the hair and gives natural, darker, thicker and shiny hair. Shikakai has antifungal properties that help get rid of dandruff for good and naturally arrests the growth of hair lice. It induces sebum secretion which helps reverse the dryness of your scalp and prevents split ends.
