    Hi ,

    After seeing many threads here , i thought to prepare shikakai powder in home itself . It is good for hair also and i am using it for past one month . Let me see for the good changes hopefully.

    Ingredients which i used

    1. Shikakai 1 full packet
    2.fenugreek 1 packet ( for coolness)
    3.pasipayaru 1 "
    4.rose petals
    5.Hibiscus flowers and leaves .
    6.Kadla paruppu some
    7.Arisi some
    8. From flower shop , the remaing of the flowers like thulsi , marikolundu etc were dried
    9. black pepper some ( to avoid dandruff)

    My mom has prepared it for one year actually . I thought to share this with you all :)


    All the ingredients were dried and powdered . Kindly see the photos . :)

    Hi sara,

    I will apply gingelly oil before some 15 minutes on hair . Then mix this powder with water in sufficient quantity and apply on hair . rinse . You wont get effect foam like shampoo but proper drying after washing the hair helps .:)

    Hi friends, i have a small suggestion in this. For those who have the problem of lice, can add dried neem flowers too.

    Hi moha ,

    Yes it is a good suggestion . We can dry some neem leaves. Even it is good to avoid dandruff as i have heard. It cures many burns in our head also and thats why during pox , they use it to apply the neem paste on heads. :)
