Shikakai, also known as hair fruit, comes from a tree (Acacia concinna) growing in India. The seedpods have been used for centuries for maintaining the health of both the scalp and hair. Shikakai pods contain naturally occurring saponins which help clean off excess sebum and dirt from the scalp. The powder is high in vitamins A, C, K and D and in antioxidants that are important for hair growth. It helps to maintain the pH balance of your hair and scalp, which helps to restore moisture and prevents the stripping of natural oils. It is known to eliminate dandruff and to assist with hair growth. It is also reputed to be an effective treatment against hair lice and fungal infections.
