Our hair cleanser is an elixir to transform your dread-looking hair into thick, glossy and lustrous locks. Repetitive cleansing with aggressive shampoo, pollution, sun damage and build-up of quick-fix styling products causes thinning and weakening of hair, damaging its texture.

Our proprietary blend of shikkai & reetha with other ingredients in the right proportions gives a soft lather & our easy rinse-off formula rinses out very quickly without leaving any residues/particles sticking to your hair.
Regular usage will help to restore natural hair colour, prevents hair loss & strengthens your hair from the roots making it voluminous and shining. It reduces dry scalp, dandruff and scalp infections, tames frizzy hair, hair breakage & split ends right from the first wash. Safe even for the sensitive & delicate scalp types.

Note: At Vikarah Holistic Beauty Rituals, we follow a transparent labelling policy. We are keen to maintain the accuracy of the ingredient list on our website and other E-commerce platforms. However, we are always updating our formulations to use the cleanest and greenest ingredients on the market - so this list is subject to change! For an accurate listing of ingredients in each product, please refer to our ‘What’s Inside’ (Ingredient Tab) on our website. It is the most up-to-date ingredient list and may differ from product packaging.
We vow that we will never stop budding and enlightening!
Our products are generously prepared using raw, organic, wild & farm-sourced ingredients, handcrafted in concentrated forms. A little of the product gives desirable results! Plant surfactants are designed to work with oiled hair and scalp. Do not use it on dry hair. Oil your hair and scalp well with Vikarah’s Kesah Thailam (hair oil) / Coldpressed Coconut or Sesame oil.
• For medium length hair, take 1/1.5 tablespoons (depending on hair thickness) of Ausadhiya Kesah Marjana and make a thick, slightly drippy mixture with water. The mixture must be smooth, lump-free. Make sure that it is not watery.
• Wet your hair and scalp thoroughly before washing. Our hair cleanser does not contain wetting agents (increase the spreading ability of shampoo making it easier to work through hair even if the hair is not fully wet) like commercial shampoos. To compensate for this, wet your hair thoroughly before using our hair cleanser.
• Massage the paste on wet hair, making sure the paste covers all your hair and scalp. Sprinkle some water periodically and gently massage your scalp and hair until clean.
• Leave for 5 to 10 minutes before rinsing thoroughly with water. This step helps the natural surfactants “adsorb” to excess oil and impurities which is then rinsed away.
• Rinse your hair thoroughly with lukewarm water and ensure that no product is left behind.
• Towel dry / air dry your hair.
• Follow up with Vikarah’s Hair Potion for brilliant results.
