OrganicSoil Association Symbol pure indigofera tinctoria indigo leaf powder for hair colouring. 

Certified by the Soil Association  so you know you can trust the quality and purity.

Indigo is a blue plant and will give a blue/green tint on light coloured - grey or light blonde hair. When used together with henna or after henna it can give brown to black shades.
 
Organic Indigo Powder used together with Henna 
When henna is used with indigo powder it can give shades from reddish brown, to dark brown, to black. The colour you get depends on the method you use, how long you leave the dye on for, and the proportion of henna to indigo you use. 
 
There are 2 ways of doing of using henna and indigo powder to achieve brown or black tones:
 
Method 1.  This method gives the strongest result. First, dye your hair with henna so it goes auburn/red. For best results, wash and dry your hair after dyeing with henna, before the next step. Next, dye your hair with indigo and the auburn/red turns to brown. To achieve the desired shade you need to leave the indigo on for the right amount of time, as well as using the right proportions of henna and indigo. The longer the indigo is left on for the darker it will be. If you leave it on the maximum time it can go black. 
 
Method 2.  Soak the henna overnight. Mix the indigo powder with water just before you are ready to dye your hair. Thoroughly mix the henna mixture together with the indigo mixture. To get a more red/brown shade use a larger percentage of henna. To get a darker brown use a larger proportion of indigo. This method is quicker than Method 1. To get a black shade use method 1.
 
Everyone’s hair is different and will take the colour differently, so some trial and error is necessary to get the desired shade.
 
How much indigo do you need?
It depends how long and how thick or fine your hair is. These quantities are for average hair. You should reduce these if you have fine hair or increase them if you have thick hair:
 
short / chin length hair - 40 to 50 gms
shoulder length hair -  80 or 90 gms
mid back length hair - 150 or 180 gms
hip length hair - 220 or 250 gms
 
How long do you need to leave indigo on your hair for?
If you are applying indigo after first colouring your hair with henna, you can leave the indigo on for different lengths of time depending on how dark you want the end colour to be. Anything from 10 minutes to 2 hours, or even longer if you want black hair. 
 
Everyone's hair is different so it is good to experiment to find the best method for your hair.

I used this product with henna, I mixed the 2 together as I was in a bit of a hurry to darken my hair. I was delighted with the results, I think this might be the best Indigo and Henna I have ever used. Thank you

The same as the henna; simply the best! Mixed with the Certified Organic Henna Powder for Hair, my hair (which is now about a third grey) has reverted to its old colour of dark auburn. Fabulous natural cover. Thank you

First time Indigo user
Tuesday, 17 March 2015  |  Carla

Well I used the indigo last week on my hair (just the crown area more or less) in the two step process after hennaing to cover my not so many greys ( but they needed to be covered !!!) and I can't rate this product highly enough. It gave a fantastic result and I frankly still can't believe a natural safe product like this is so effective. I left the indigo on for a good 25 minutes and my hair was a lovely dark brown colur again more or less matching with the rest of my waist length hair. I daresay it is potentially a bit of trial and error to get exactly the shade you want but I am delighted and hope it lasts a whille. I used a 100 g sachet of indigo to half a sachet of henna and that seems to have worked great.. I would say the indigo is slightly more tricky to use at is a thinner paste than the henna but I stll did not put anthing down on the floor to protect it when I stood in front of the mirror in the bathroom to apply it. This product is MAGIC !!!! And it is very comforting to know I have finally found a safe and healthy product to improve my appearance and it is not often you can say that in the same sentence !!!!

I live in Turkey and had my indigo delivered to a friend in UK coming to visit me. I'd left it until the last minute so worried she wouldn't get it on time. Suvrna sprung into action the minute my order was placed and informed me where my order was every step of the way. It arrived at my friend's house the next day. Excellent service, thank you.

I have previously bought this indigo powder along with henna powder via Amazon, so I knew how amazing the quality was. It's so finely milled and gives a beautifully rich almost-black when I mix it with my henna mixture! I won't buy it anywhere else

My hair came out with much volume and straightened when I mixed this with henna and amla and it's already very thick . I used too much indigo and it came out too dark. I faded it over three washes or so to a colour I love. And my curl came back and my hair settled. I'll use less indigo and amla next time. But I am definitely buying again. I won't go back to chemical dyes as I love the texture of my hair, the shine, and the natural looking tones.
