About Shikakai

Shikakai is the name used in India to refer to the powder from the crushed pod of the fruit of the Acacia Concinna tree, a small shrub like tree which grows in the driest regions of India; it means, literally, “fruit for the hair”. This flattering nickname is a result of the fruits’ reputation as a superior hair cleanser, with a natural low ph that respects the hairs’ natural oils, leaving hair soft, shiny and gloriously clean; it is also due to its age old reputation for promoting hair growth and preventing dandruff. It is suitable for the most sensitive scalp.
