Dr. Bronner’s Magic “All-In-One” Organic Shikakai Conditioning Hair Rinse
Contains: Organic Lemon Juice, Organic Shikakai Powder, Organic Coconut Oil, Organic Olive Oil, Organic Hemp Oil, Organic Jojoba Oil, Organic Lemon Oil, Organic Orange Oil
Description: Organic Shikakai [“Shee-kah-kye”] powder comes from the seed pods of the small South Asian tree Acacia Concinna, and is widely used in India for soft shiny hair. Organic lemon juice, used traditionally in the west, rinses and tightens hair shafts for excellent manageability. Organic coconut, olive and hemp fatty acids moisturize for luxuriant hair.
This stuff truly is magical! So pure and so nourishing, it is one of the best hair products I’ve ever bought. I have long hair that gets easily tangled amidst my active lifestyle and workouts. This rinse makes everything better–no more tangles–soft nourished hair with a lovely fresh and citrusy scent. Dr. Bronner’s suggests diluting it because it is very rich–but I just use a little in the palm of my hand and it is just enough. Remember to apply starting at the ends of your hair to avoid getting your roots too oily. For extra moisturizing, use this in combination with a conditioner (Aubrey Organics makes my favorite conditioners).
