Shikakai, also known as Acacia concinna, is a small tree native to India and commonly used in traditional Ayurvedic hair care. Its name literally means "fruit for the hair" in Hindi. The tree bears pods that contain small, brown seeds, which are ground into a fine powder. Shikakai powder is commonly used as a natural shampoo due to its gentle cleansing properties and ability to nourish the scalp and hair. It has a pH balance similar to that of the human scalp, making it ideal for use on all hair types.

In addition to its use as a shampoo, shikakai is also believed to promote healthy hair growth, reduce dandruff and split ends, and add shine to the hair. It has a refreshing, mild aroma and is typically used in conjunction with other natural ingredients, such as amla and reetha.
