The berry of the acacia concinna, which is indigenous to India, is used to make shikakai shampoo. The fruit is powdered after being desiccated and ground, and it is combined with water to create a paste. The hair and head are covered with this paste, which is then applied before being rinsed off. Shikakai shampoo is thought to be good for hair and skin because it contains a lot of saponins, which are organic cleaning agents. It is also claimed that the shampoo is nourishing and moisturizing, and it is frequently used to address dandruff and other scalp issues.
