Product Description

Indigo Powder for Hair is a natural plant. The powdered leaves have a natural dark blue dye. Indigo is used along with henna to dye darker hair tones.

What color tones will you get? 

  • reddish brown when using proportions of 75% henna and 25% indigo. This method is called a one step process.
  • brown tones when using proportions of 50% indigo and 50% henna. This method is called a one step process.
  • dark chocolate brown tones when using proportions of 75% indigo and 25% henna. This method is called a one step process.
  • Black Tones when you use henna first at 100%, and then second step of indigo at 100%. This method is called a two step process. 
  • Apply indigo with your henna application to get browner tones. This method is called a one step process. 

Instructions and recipes will also come with every purchase of indigo.

Our indigo is packaged in double plastic bags inside of foil packaging. This ensures freshness.

Please note: this indigo differs from our organic indigo. They are from two different farms, and the results vary. This difference is similar to the difference in color results between henna powders. This particular indigo is best for resistant hair and grey hairs. We recommend this indigo for our clients wanting dark tones including black tones. 

 

Fall 2017 Batch

More Info

Dye release for indigo is 15-20 minutes. Please mix with warm to hot water only. A bit of salt added to the indigo will help it adhere better to your hair strands, if needed.

Using indigo for brown to black tones

Veronica's recipe: She used 60/40 ratio of henna to indigo, with the henna mixed with very strong, cool black tea. Then after that she did two very strong glosses of mostly henna with a little bit of indigo.

  1. Awesome results! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 6th Nov 2014

    Just did the two step process - henna then indigo - no more GRAYS! love it!


  2. Consistent quality 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 2nd Aug 2014

    I've used henna, indigo and amla glosses for a few years now without fear of any surprise outcomes. I'm so pleased there is an alternative to chemical dyes.


  3. Covers the gray 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 27th Jun 2014

    I only need a small amount of this (maybe 2 or 3 tbsp) when mixing with my henna. It's enough to cover up my gray roots while not making my hair too dark.


  4. Enhanced my colour 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 23rd Jan 2014

    This Indigo enhanced the tone and colour of my dark hair. I loved the shine it left on my hair and how easy it was to wash out (I added conditioner to the mix). I used a 25% Indigo, 50% Jamila and 25% Rajistan for this recent Henna application and was impressed with the depth and intensity of the colour. I highly recommend this Indigo because of the quality of the powder, ease of mix and ease to wash out. My hair was not hard but I did deep condition with heat following this application as advised by The Sooq. Very happy with this product, mixing up a new batch right now.


  5. Dyeing without fear 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 24th Dec 2013

    I liked the results after I used the indigo. I have a lot of greys and got the coverage that was promised. I have extremely sensitive scalp and have only recently found out about henna and even more recently, about the indigo. It is really good using something that I know I will not react to.


  6. Indigo for hair 4 Star Review

    So pleased with the results and my hair feels healthy and looks shiny. I would definitely recommend this product!


  7. Worked better than expected 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 16th Jul 2013

    I used henna first on my hair and then the indigo and it worked really well. It wasn't difficult to use and so far the results are great.


  8. Good products, fast delivery and helpful support 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 11th Jul 2013

    I've been covering my blend of grey hair with hendigo glosses for a few years now after a terrifying reaction to box dye. I found out first hand that those chemicals are neurotoxins.
    I use a ratio of 1:3 henna/indigo in silicone free conditioner and leave on for 1 hour. That seems to give me all the color required. I follow up with an indigo gloss on the temples which are 100% grey. I repeat the indigo gloss to the temple area whenever they start to look too orange for my liking. Using glosses seems to ensure it is less likely things will turn out too dark unexpectedly. I am aiming for brown tones and am quite happy with the coppery-brown results. I'm using the Moroccon Henna which helps target the color range I'm trying to achieve.
    The indigo is consistently a very fine, well sifted powder. My recently recieved order included some good basic instruction on the use of henna and indigo. I also know from passed experience that they will provide some suggestions by e-mail if any questions arise.


  9. Ideal chemical free dye 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 9th May 2013

    I decided to play against the rules and have been using indigo by itself (no henna what so ever) for the past 8 months. My hair is naturally a ash dirty blond, so the results are a beautiful black with a purple/blue shine to it. I'm surprised apparently no one else has bothered to try using indigo on it's own, but if anyone is curious to the process I mix hot water with the indigo powder until it's like mashed potatoes. I load it upon the hair (use lots!) then work it in with gloved hands for about a minute. After that I cover it with plastic wrap and leave it in for 8 hours, then I rinse it out in lukewarm water. I follow that with using the natural soap bars sold on this website, then add a little oil into my hair after it dries, then repeat the process once more. This is the trick to not using henna and to getting a blue/purple black hair color. The only drawback is it's time consuming and is a 1 step repeat process.
