thank you nice product and quickly shipped
Great consistency of powder.
I bought this product with a few other to start a Ayurvedic hair routine. I have noticed some great change in my hair strength and health.
Highly recommend trying this powder, it's great quality and has so many benefits and uses
I liked it and it worked well
I love this stuff!!! It makes my hair very shiny! I put some in a glass bottle, add water, shake it and add more powder or water until it is the consistency of pancake batter. I use this while in the shower. I put a little in my hand and start scrubbing. I do this throughout my scalp and hair. After I work it through I clip up my hair and wash my body, then I rinse my hair. The mixture will keep for a few days in the jar with the lid closed tightly. Only mix enough for about three shampoos.
I am happy with my purchase. It is just as it was advertised. I would repurchased.
I have used Shikakai on my hair all my life and I found this product not the real deal. For one it didn't smell like real shikakai, then the color was off - it was a different brown than the real one. The real one definitely is a darker brown. Three though the powder was finely ground, after washing my hair with it, it always felt rougher. Real shikakai powder even when coarsely ground, always leaves hair silken. I usually like to oil my hair before I use shikakai and this one really did not strip the oil. All in all I am very dissatisfied with the quality and don't plan to buy it again.
Based on some of the reviews I was a little reluctant to try Shikakai Powder but I am so glad I did. I have tried several chemical free organic shampoos. None I have loved enough to purchase again. First off upon opening it just a small whiff of the powder really irritated my nose (made me sneeze), note to self do not smell it. I'm not fond of the smell but after mixing with water as a paste and adding rosemary and lavender essential oil it didn't bother me at all. Also the smell doesn't linger after conditioning and drying. The first time I used it I left my hair wet, let it air dry. It was soft but I thought ah.. maybe it's the conditioner. Last night I washed my hair again with the paste then used conditioner (honey, olive oil - rosemary), put rollers on and sat under the hairdryer. Wow. I have been using soapnuts and or castille soap to wash my hair for the past two years after a very scary bout of hairloss (Lupus induced alopecia) in 2015. My hair is soft but bouncy and clean using the Shikakai powder. I have mixed hair (Puerto rican). I am very pleased and will make sure I always have this in my herb cabinet.
It's very drying to the hair. My second use I added it to a deep conditioner so my hair wouldn't be so dry. It really cleans the scalp well!
A great shampoo
I am not satisfied with this product and it is not pure shikakai powder as I expected and I am sure this product is pure chemical and has very strong odor. I wish I can return this product and get my money back. I trusted Amazon but I am very disappointed
My hair feels more nourished, and has incredible sheen.
Definitely feels great when I mix with amla powder. I can't say for the efficacy of regrowing hair yet but definitely cools the scalp, and cleanses it. If anything, it can help you destress and is a chemical free shampoo.
I've used the Herbs and Crops shikakai before with no problem. It always left my hair gorgeous! When that ran out, I decided to buy a new one and it did not work. It left my hair all greasy and left my curls with no shape.. I even tried it more than once, readjusting the ratios to see if it would get better. If I had tried this one as my first time trying shikakai, I would never again use shikakai on my hair. So if one of you finds that this shikakai does not leave your hair right, try a different brand. There's something weird about this one...
I see a lot of people are having issues with the mess. Try making a tea using the powder then use cheesecloth to separate the powder (herb). Do final rinse with the tea.
I love this stuff. It leaves my hair very clean and soft. I dont mind the mess since its done in the shower anyways. I love that I no longer need store bought shampoo. Smells nice. Will for sure buy again.
This got to be either really really old, fake shikakai or it's been mixed with something so it's not pure shikakai for sure! I've used REAL shikakai before and my scalp is clean rid of all dandruffs no more itching and decreased hair fall by 90% but I ran out and wanted to try this brand since it's a little cheaper and boy the few dollars that I've saved was not worth it at all!!! My dandruffs,itchiness and hairfall are coming back and it made my skin broke out in horrible rashes everywhere it touches on my body. It was so itchy I couldn't take it I scratched the crap out of my skin. I'm going to contact amazon and tell them about this! Now I gotta rebuy the old ones that I've used before. What a wasted of money but worse of all it did real bad to my scalp,hair and skin! the hologram sticker that sealed the package it came in was ripped opened. Now I'm wondering whoever sold this took out the original and mixed it with something else to profit more.
So far, I loved the effects on my hair, but not the mess that this product leaves, in attempts to use it on hair. I was able to use this product as a hair rinse, and it left my thick curls very soft and manageable. I would love to use this product as weekly treatment and attempt to make a hair paste for my hair. However, I'm going to only give this product four stars due to the following reasons: the product comes with no directions on how to use the product, it is very grainy so you do have to be careful that none of this product gets into your eyes while you'll mixing it, and it might take a few tries to learn how to use this product properly without making a mess since, there is no way to seal the product after opening. If you buy this product, make sure you have an air tight container ready to store it. I love the way that this product leaves my hair soft, defined, and easier to detangle, but the product is too messy for me to use; if I can successfully get the benefits of this product, without making a mess or stinging my eyes, than this product would be wonderful.
I haven't been using it long so I haven't experienced it's claimed benefits however, this "powder" is extremely grainy. Kind of like coffee grinds. I'll finish using my bag, but it's not likely that I'll buy this one again.
I came across this product on YouTube and decided to give it a try. I was looking for a product that stimulates hair growth on natural hair. Preparing the powder: I used about 3 tablespoons of powder and a half cup of aloe Vera juice. Using more or less will not effect your hair or change the integrity of the product. I did notice it can be chunky when mixing, So I warmed it in the microwave for 10 seconds and that did the trick. I used it as a shampoo, so I rubbed it in my scalp and through out my hair. It sat on my hair for about 5 minutes and I rinsed. It rinsed out very easy and fast. Immediately, I noticed how soft my hair was. So soft, that I didn't need my Detangler spray. I was impressed. My hair felt soft, clean and a slight shine. I didn't add a leave in conditioner because I want to see how my hair responds to this without interference with other products. I'll continue my weekly wash routine using this product and update my review in the coming weeks
Great! I use it with amla and hibiscus powder as treatment for hair.
