Shikakai, often known as “the hair fruit”, has been used in India for centuries as a gentle conditioning agent for both skin, hair and scalp. Shikakai nut extract has a high content of vitamin C (a natural antioxidant) and vitamins A, D, E and K. Shikakai is effective in combating dandruff and is extremely gentle, working to not overly strip hair of its natural oils. It stimulates hair growth and strengthens follicles without leaving the hair and scalp dry.
