Description
Acacia concinna has been used traditionally for hair care in the Indian Subcontinent since ancient times. It is one of the Ayurvedic medicinal plants. The fruit is known in India as shikakai (hindi: ???????, ?ik?k??; in Sanskrit Saptala). Shikakai, fruit for hair, is a traditional shampoo used in India. In order to prepare it the fruit pods, leaves and bark of Acacia concinna are dried, powdered and made into a paste.
While this traditional shampoo does not produce the normal amount of lather that a sulfate-containing shampoo would, it is a good cleanser. It is mild, having a naturally low pH, and doesnt strip hair of natural oils. Usually no conditioner is needed, for shikakai also acts as a detangler.
