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.

Good quality product that gives brilliant colour. I have dark brown hair and dye it by mixing indigo leaf power and henna - absolutely love the result. Hair feels very silky, colour is vibrant and natural. On average the effect lasts around 4 weeks for me, which indeed is a good going providing they are all natural ingredients without chemically enhanced colours and additives.

Wonderful in every way
Tuesday, 21 January 2014  |  M

I contacted Tricia to get some advice about dying afro hair black with henna. She suggested that I purchase the henna and indigo and said that my hair could go black. Well I'm here to tell you that it did go black and I love it, in fact I'm placing another order today and 3 of my friends will be placing orders too. I loved Tricia's rapid response to my questions, the additional instructions that came with the products and most importantly the end result (left my hair incredibly soft, shiny and my scalps no longer flaky. I had heard reports about henna being drying and wanted to avoid that for natural afro hair so added a dollop of conditioner to the henna just before applying it) So what can I say? It's just wonderful in every way! Thank you, I just wish I'd done it sooner but will never look back now!

Being 45 I have a few grey hairs that over the last year have become more orange when using henna. I mixed some of the indigo with it just before applying and have ended up with a rich deep red that has made me fall in love with my hair all over again. Highly recommend the indigo from Tricia at Survana
