Hesh Aritha Powder – Natural Shampoo
What is the Hesh Aritha Powder?
In the past decade or so, there has been an increasing shift towards using natural personal care products among consumers. This is because a significant number of synthetic products contain chemical compounds that are harmful or questionable in terms of their health effects.
For example, formaldehyde was recently categorized as a carcinogen while others such as parabens, PEG, ingredients labeled as fragrance or perfume and a number of colors are speculated to be carcinogenic or harmful in other ways. Others, such as SLS (Sodium Lauryl or Laureth Sulfate) are known to be irritants and can worsen skin sensitivity with prolonged use.
The Hesh Aritha Powder is made purely out of natural ingredients and has no noted side effects or harmful properties. It is a mild shampoo that cleanses your hair and scalp while also making your hair soft and moisturized.
In addition to its use as a shampoo, the Hesh Aritha Powder may also be used as a mild detergent for washing your laundry, particularly delicate fabrics such as silk, wool or cashmere.
As mentioned further below, the Hesh Aritha Powder is made purely out of Soapnut (Sapindus Trifoliatus) powder. Although this powder may not form as much foam or froth as much as regular shampoos, the saponins (a natural surfactant) which it contains will help cleanse your hair.
Soap nut powder – often simply known as reetha or ritha powder, does not have any side effects as far as we are able to determine. As the Hesh Aritha Powder is quite mild, it is suitable for those with sensitive skin or hair.
Why use the Hesh Aritha Powder?
If you are looking to move away from commercial products with questionable chemical compounds, the Hesh Aritha Powder is perfect for you. Made from the fruit of the Sapindus Trifoliatus or soapnuts, this powder is unlike synthetic shampoos that are quite strong and tend to strip hair of essential oils, instead it is quite mild but cleanses your hair very well.
It has a slightly sweet smell that most reviewers found to be quite pleasant It not only cleanses your hair but leaves it soft and shiny. A number of reviewers have even suggested that the Hesh Aritha Powder helps reduce dandruff.
The Hesh Aritha Powder is a completely natural product that makes your hair soft, shiny and healthy. It gives your hair bounce and has a slightly sweet fragrance. It has no noted side effects and you can even use it to wash delicate fabrics such as silk, cashmere or wool.
As it quite mild, both in terms of strength and fragrance, you can also use it to wash your pets. However, it may not be suitable for all types of pets and we advise you to consult a veterinarian to be safe.
The only drawback that we are able to identify is that the Hesh Aritha Powder will sting quite badly if you let it get into your eyes. Other than that, there are no reports of any adverse effects associated with the use of Hesh Aritha Powder or soapnut powders in general.
The Hesh Aritha or soapnut powder is a great natural shampoo that has a lower biological impact on the environment and may also be used to clean your laundry or carpets. You may even use it to wash your pets although we recommend checking with the veterinarian to ensure safe use. The Hesh Aritha Powder is a quality herbal product and a viable replacement for conventional shampoos. We highly recommend it if you plan on switching to safer, natural, herbal products.

I found that making a tea of this very fine powder is much easier to use as hair wash. I placed about 2tsp in a small muslin tea bag and boiled it with 1/2C water. I added some black tea bags to the mixture as well to slightly stain my hair. The concoction seemed to work very well- hair wasn't stiff or dry (I use ACV for conditioner afterwards) and am pleased with the results.
