Shikakai, Acacia concinna, is used as a powder that comes from de-shelled shikakai nuts. Shikakai, a common shrub found in jungles throughout India, has been used for hair care in India for centuries. Shikakai is referred to as "fruit for the hair." It has a naturally mild pH, gently cleans hair and increases bounciness and silkiness of hair without stripping it of natural oils. As a natural hair conditioner, Shikakai is said to promote hair growth, strengthen hair roots and clear dandruff.
