Shikakai is an excellent ingredient for hair treatment and is mixed in various herbal shampoos.
Mostly in the Indian continent, Shikakai has been used for hair care or its treatment since a very long time. It is very useful as it has proved to be a natural treatment and that too exclusive of any chemical substances.
It is a medicinal herb or a plant that is Ayurvedic in nature.
It is also given the name of “FRUIT FOR HAIR” and is commonly used as shampoo for hair since the ancient times.
The shampoo containing the ingredient Shikakai does not produce a lot of lather as the other shampoos that contain sulphates do, but then too it serves as an excellent cleanser.
Shikakai is also useful and is mild in nature. Thus, it does not harm the body in any way when consumed or applied.
It is also of great use as it has a low pH value, thus harmless by nature.
It does not lead to loss of hair when applied on the hair.
After applying Shikakai, one does not require any sort of conditioners as it is itself a very good conditioner for the hair.
Hair powders are also made using Shikakai.
