Indigo (Indigofera Tinctoria) is a flowering plant whose leaves were originally used in blue jeans. It is now widely used for making hair dyes. Indigo when combined with our Organic Henna can gives a natural black tone.
Please read first! This is a natural plant based product and thus is green in color. When mixed with water it turns deep green or blue. When dying your hair, please use a test sample first. Your results will vary based on the color of your hair, if your hair has been colored before and if so was it chemically colored or done with henna. Did you use or are you using any additives like lemon juice or olive oil. Please purchase knowing that you are using a natural product and will not get the same results that chemicals do.
Application of All Natural Indigo Powder
Cover everything in old towels or newspaper, and wear old clothes.
Dye your hair with our organic henna first for the best result. This helps give the indigo a base to stick to.
Get 100g of indigo for every six inches of hair. Curly hair will need more. 200g is usually enough for shoulder length hair.
Mix the indigo in a plastic bowl with warm water to make a pancake like paste. Allow to sit 10-15 minutes.
Get someone to help you apply the indigo, starting at the back. Cover your entire hair, and wrap it in saran wrap or a shower cap.
Wipe off the drips that run down quickly to avoid any stains. Laying on your back helps keep the indigo from dripping down.
For Black tones, use 100% henna first and then second step of indigo at 100%
