How to wash hair with Shikakai Powder

This post will explain the way of using the Shikakai powder. First of all let me thank all of you  for showing interest in using shikakai powder. I am really thankful to the people who helped me in doing this product.

I got to know that many of them have doubt about how to use this shikakai powder as some are using it for the first time. Please refer below for the procedure.

  1. Mix this Shikakai powder 2 hours before the wash  or previous night with water (Actually rice water works well) into a smooth paste and leave it.
  2. Massage your hair and scalp with oil of your choice.
  3. Split your hair into two halves n Take shikakai  paste and spread all over the hair and scalp and wait for 5 min.
  4. Take little water  and rub the hair with your hand gently. Take more water as required.
  5. Wash off and redo if necessary.
  6. You will feel the softness once your hair dries.

The amount of shikakai depends on the length of your hair. I hope this is clear if you have any doubt feel free to reach me at
