Acacia concinna commonly known as Shikakai has been used in Indian hair care for centuries The bark contains high levels of saponins, foaming agents which have a long history of use as mild cleaning agents and detanglers. The fruit pods, leaves and bark of Acacia Concinna are dried, powdered and made into a paste at home. While this paste does not produce the normal amount of lather that a regular shampoo would, it is a good cleanser. It has a natural low pH, is extremely mild and doesn’t strip hair of natural oils. Usually no rinse or conditioner is needed since shikakai also acts as a detangler, making the hair silky and soft. It is also used to combat dandruff.
