Shikakai a is a small shrub-like tree which grows in India. It's pod-like fruit is collected, dried and then ground into a fine powder. Our shikakai powder is organically certified.

Shikakai powder is used to:

  • to cleanse hair
  • for promoting hair growth
  • preventing dandruff
  • strengthening the hair from its roots

Due to these benefits, this powder was named shikakai which means "fruit for the hair".

Traditionally, no conditioner is used since shikakai also acts as a detangler. This ancient product is probably the world's original pH balanced hair cleanser and used as a an herbal shampoo. 

Do note everyone's hair is very individual and should you need to, please use a conditioner, ACV rinse or moisture rich leave in or oil for best results. 

Quantity 100 grams



You can take your shikakai powder and mix it with warm to hot distilled water and make a paste which is worked through the hair. It lathers moderately and cleanses hair beautifully. It has a natural low pH, is extremely mild and doesn't strip hair of its natural oils. Do note some hair types may require balancing with our cleansing CoWash or an ACV rinse or leave in conditioner or oil. Use as needed based on your hair needs and focus.

    I have used shikakai before as a hair cleanser. The product I ordered from Henna Sooq is definitely of a superior quality: it is very finely sifted, making rinsing--which can be a bit tricky--quite easy. It leaves my hair perfectly clean, very soft, and bouncy.

    This was my first time using Shikakai powder and I must say from first impressions, I am in love.
    The smell was something like an earthy spice and it was oddly pleasing to my nose. After using the Shikakai my hair felt stronger and actually clean.

  • Good Quality

    I really like that this and soapnuts combined don't make my hair feel extremely dried and tangled. I have very coily hair so most products make my hair feel dry and my ends dried out and then my roots get tangled. This did not happen with this product. The only thing is this and soap nuts did not completely cleanse my hair. I went back over my hair with the Rhassoul clay shampoo bar. My hair was super clean after that.
