Shikakai powder is free of artificial additives. Because the hair washing powder consists of 100% Shikakai. The natural active ingredient closes the hair structure and helps your scalp detoxify. Also it prevents irritation and dandruff, reduces split ends and stimulates hair growth.


The hair cure is particularly suitable for you, if you are allergic or would like to change to natural cosmetics.

Mix the powder into a glass bowl.

Add enough warm water to create a thick paste. Allow the Paste to rest covered and undisturbed for 30 min -1 hour. After the rest add about 1-2 tsp of your favorite conditioner. Add about 2-3 tbsp of Argan oil. Mix everything really well. Should you need more liquid then do add more and if it's too runny then you can add more powder to thicken it.



Wear your gloves. Apply the Paste on your towel-dry hair. (IMPORTANT) cover your hair with plastic wrap or shower cap to prevent the paste from drying on your Hair. Dried paste is very difficult to wash out of your Hair. Allow it to stay in your hair for 1-3 hours.

If you have bleached hair, you should leave shikakai not longer then 10 minutes on your hair otherwise the color may change.
