Shikakai powder conditions hair, strengthens hair roots and prevents breakage and split ends. Shikakai has been used in India for centuries as hair wash and hair conditioner. It cleans hair, prevents itchy scalp, and deep conditions leaving hair soft and manageable. Shikakai does not strip hair of its natural pH value leaving hair soft and clean at the same time.
Regular use of Shikakai prevents split ends and breakage during combing leading to long, luxuriant hair. Shikakai has saponin which generates lather in contact with water.

Caution when using on blond or bleached hair, test it best first on a hairlock and do not leave for more than 10 minutes (risk of discolouring).
