Hesh Shikakai Powder

As you all know, transitioning can become a chore with all the detangling, co-washing, bunning, etc. Well, I've basically changed my regimen every week to figure out what my hair likes best during this stage. I'm am now 39 weeks post relaxerfree image hosting and I'm turning to ayurvedic hair care. I listed some information below on the Shikakai Powder that I now use intead of shampoo!

Shikakai Powder

Hesh Shikakai Powder acts as a natural astringent for hair enhancing its binding properties. It clears dandruff and cleans the dirt accumulated on the scalp. Being a natural conditioner for hair, SHIKAKAI strengthens hair roots and promotes luxuriant growth. Hesh Shikakai powder has certain vital properties that act as coolants for the scalp. This powder has to be mixed with water and used as a paste on the hair instead of shampoo. FOR SOFT & HEALTHY DANDRUFF-FREE HAIR!

Hesh Shikakai Powder has the following advantages:

- Provides new life to hair strands
- Strengthens hair roots
- Increases bounciness and silkiness of hair
- Clears dandruff
- Keeps the scalp clean and cool.


1: Place required amount of powder in a bowl then add water and mix well to create a thick paste.

2: Gently massage the paste into the hair and scalp rotating with your finger tips.

3: Wait for 2 to 5 minutes.

4: Rinse thoroughly with water.


Avoid contact with eyes.
Should contact occur rinse immediately with water.
