It’s incredible to see traditionally derived ingredients making a comeback as a savior in the skin and hair industry. One such ingredient is Shikakai (Acacia concinna), a shrub that originated and is commonly found in India. This prominent shrub from the Ayurveda industry has created a lot of buzz in the hair care industry. All thanks to its high nutritional properties, Shikakai has the ability to detox the scalp while improving the quality of hair.
Let’s have a look at the marvelous hair care benefits of Shikakai for Hair :
Control hair fall
Exposing hair to harsh weather, pollution, prolonged heat, and stress can often deteriorate the health of hair follicles. Uncountable falling of hair strands is the red flag that something is wrong with your hair. Using Shikakai such damaged hair can conciliate the situation gradually. The vitamins and antioxidants found in Shikakai nourish the hair follicles while preventing them from breakage.
Those with hair and scalp dryness also suffer from the flaky scalp. Using Shikakai on regular basis moisturizes the hair roots while gently cleansing hair follicles. Shikakai powder has the potential to reveal naturally lustrous hair while fixing your hair woes.
Chemically or naturally damaged hair gets tangled easily leading to breakage. Including Shikakai in your regular hair care products can help in smoother detangling of hair than before while reducing breakage.
Maintains natural pH
Harsh shampoo can damage the hair by eliminating the natural oil of the scalp. Using Shikakai-infused shampoo for your hair can cleanse the hair effectively while maintaining natural oil production. On constant use of this shampoo, it prevents itchy scalp while promoting stronger and healthier hair.
Delays early greying of hair
One of the common hair care issues is premature greying of hair. Lack of nutrients, stress, and genetics can be responsible for the early greying of hair. Profusely using nutrient-rich Shikakai in your hair care routine can drastically delay the discoloration of hair while improving its quality.
Prevents split ends
Excessive use of chemically-rich hair care products within less time damages hair causing split ends and brittleness. Shikakai possesses antioxidants that nourish the scalp by reducing split ends.
Promotes faster hair growth

Shikakai offers additional nourishment to the scalp by stimulating hair follicles for new hair growth. Rich in Vitamins (A, C, D, E, and K) Shikakai naturally enhances the volume and strength of hair while repairing hair damage to a great extent.
