Organic Indigo For Hair

(12 reviews) Write a Review

Organic 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 can be downloaded via the Instruction tab, Henna TV link and DIY Henna link.

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

Important please note: our organic indigo differs from our indigo that is non-organic. They are from two different farms, and the results vary. This difference is similar to the difference in color results between henna powders. Our non-organic indigo (Indigo for Hair) is better for those who have resistant hair and greys (that are hard to color), and for those wanting rich dark tones, including black.

This henna powder comes inside an inner foil resealable pouch. This is the best packaging possible to maintain freshness.

Quantity 100 grams

Crop 2018

Dye release for organic indigo is 30 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.

    I've tried other Indigo Powders for colouring my hair but the results I get from your Indigo products are absolutely amazing! Your product is BY FAR better than anything else available out there...

    For the first time I was able to cover my grey hair by mixing indigo powder with my regular henna. Very happy with the result.

    Good result but...

    I am satisfied so far with the result, it is the color I was looking for, but the indigo was really hard to rinse, even after washing my hair, I still feel some residue on the scalp...

    Product comes out, exposes the henna.

    Sadly, even with the salt, the indigo does not adhere to my hair as well as i would like it to. Maybe it is my hair, which is mixed race, curly with graying roots. I am trying out other ways to deal with this, including adding some indigo in with the henna and then in part 2, the indigo alone. But generally, it is an okay product.

    Love adding indigo to my henna

    I love the results of adding indigo to my henna. I use 2/3 henna and 1/3 indigo. Adding a little amla tones down the red and it looks great. :)

    Beyond thrilled

    My hair is 50% grey, perhaps more. I have used henna for over 20 years. As I got more grey, my hair turned more orange or copper with henna. I tried black henna-based powder, and the allergic reaction was swift and severe: red, swollen, itchy scalp and face. Never again. I discovered indigo and applied it for the first time in my life. I was blown away with the result: soft, beautiful chestnut brown color. Since it's chemical-free, I had no allergic reaction. Moreover the 50/50 henna-indigo procedure was quite simple: 1. I prepared my usual henna paste with boiling water, virgin coconut oil (I sometimes use virgin olive oil or baby oil), and a good squeeze of lemon juice. Set aside. 2. Next I prepared the indigo paste with the remaining boiling water (I added cold water to make it lukewarm). Set aside for 15 mintues and watched indigo turn from green to dark midnight blue to almost black. 3. I mixed the 2 pastes together (I use an electric hand-mixer for to get a smooth non-crumbly paste) adding just a bit more coconut oil and water. 4. I applied the mixture thoroughly from roots to tips, massaging my scalp gently to make sure I covered all the roots. Wrapped my hair in plastic shower cap. 5. After 3 hours, I shampooed and conditioned. I was beyond thrilled with the result. My only regret? I had not discovered indigo earlier! I want to experiment next mixing henna and indigo powder (instead of pastes) together to make the procedure even more simple. I think it's possible with the same gorgeous result.

    So far so good.

    Posted by Erin on 27th Jul 2014

    So far I love it. My blonde still refuses to cover up on some points. But I need more and will be ordering as much more and I can. I have a dark brownish red. Before I had the orange color going on before I heard about this site. So I thank you

    Indigo organic

    Posted by Maria on 1st Apr 2014

    good product. tends to stain clothing though unless completely washed off. better result when used after using henna. the only concern colour retention - how many washes can the dye actualy withstand. Note from Henna Sooq: If you complete the rinse with an apple cider vinegar wash, it may help with retention. 1 part vinegar, 2 parts water. You could also consult our blog for possible Indigo issues

    I did it in two steps for a friend and the results were amazing. Will do it again and recommend it for sure.
