  1. Best Natural Shampoo 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 16th Mar 2018

    Love how clean this gets my hair without stripping! Hair is also stronger, less shedding and growing like crazy!

  2. I will try again 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 20th Feb 2017

    So, when I used this I used more shikakai than Soap nuts but I want to try again with equal amounts of both powders and a little amla and marshmallow root (because I have kinky/coily hair). After boiling I will put in the blender to get this to suds up. I noticed the shampoo cleaned better when it was foamy versus watery. So my advice would be for people to put this in the blender to get it to fully foam. You can also soak the herbs in water overnight for a stronger shampoo

  3. Great Quality, amazing cleanser 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 27th Jul 2014

    I've been using Aritha mixed in equal parts with shikakai and then a bit of brahmi and methi (fenugreek) powder to cleanse for years and HennaSooq has the best Aritha. The texture is very smooth and helps to rinse easily. I read another review that was disappointed in not having directions. Try my recipe which is pretty basic and based on Indian treatments: 3 tbsp each shikakai and aritha, 1 tbsp each brahmi and methi. Add enough boiling water to make a runny paste. Let sit 30 mins, add ess oils if you want. I add this to dry pre-pooed hair, wrap in plastic and rinse in an hour, then DT as usual. For more pronouced cleaning you can co-wash first and then add the paste to towel dried hair, cover in plastic and leave 30 mins. It doesn't bubble, but I use this as my monthly "deep clean" as that I only co-wash otherwise.

  4. It was okay..... 3 Star Review

    Posted by on 21st Nov 2013

    I used this as a hair cleanser, and it was okay i wasnt to impressed it did clean my hair "somewhat" its not very sudsy and kind of wasteful if not put on correctly i didnt like that there was no info on the bag on how to use it, no directions or nothing......will not be buying again.

  5. Another Wonderful and Gentle hair Cleanser 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 13th Mar 2013

    This cleanser is so wonderful.... it not only leaves the hair very soft but it gives lots of body and adds lots of volume and shine. I used it with other Ayurvedic powders as well and the results were SURPERB....I'm getting another job just to keep all of my Henna Sooq staple products which definitely includes this this one as well as the others. I'm addicted.

  6. Clean, bouncy hair. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 8th Mar 2013

    This is working great for me as a paste or a tea. I usually add other herbs to the mixture, such as brahmi, bhringraj, zizyphus spina christi, amla, hibiscus, etc. I usually make a blend of these herbs in bulk and store them in a jar. Can also be added to a henna mix.

    Cleans my hair wonderfully, even after an oiling, and leaves it feeling thick and bouncy!

  7. Excellent cleanse 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 13th Jul 2012

    I decided to try the soapnut powder because I really enjoy the shikakai. A mix of these two as cleansers plus some aloe vera & brahmi powders was absolutely amazing for my hair! My hair was soft, moisturized and manageable. And my scalp was wonderfully clean, but not stripped. I definitely intend to re-purchase this powder, it has become a staple.
