Apply to the wet hair, mass(massage) delicately the scalp. Let put 3 in 5 minutes maximum and rinse abundantly.

Not need according to shampoo, the hair is appropriate(clean) and démélé.

Precautions for use : Shikakai is natural but has not less(nevertheless) some irritating effects during its use. Avoid the contact with eyes! If contact, to rinse them in the clear water.

Our experience(experiment):


Been used to the ghassoul and hénné, we had no concerns(marigolds) as for the preparation and the application of Shikakai. Once pressed in a towel(briefcase), hair presented an aspect pleasant to the touch and had already more spring(competence) and volume.

Hair flexible but tired by some cosmetics find their beautiful natural buckles.


We were surprised by the irritation with eyes because we did not know about this unpleasant aspect, it is for celà that we notified it previously!

We used Shikakai Powder with Hibiscus, Methi ( Fénugrec) and Arishta ( Sapindus Emarginatus) of The Organic Shop
