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.

Coverage was good for first week
Monday, 25 January 2016  |  Neerja

I applied powder indigo as second step after mixing it with normal water for 10 minutes. I did not shampoo for3 days . My hair were dark brown at this point. After that I shampooed and a lot of indigo came out. My gray hair now were black to chocolate brown. After second wash gray hair were back to henna color. So for about 10 days indigo stayed on my hair

Used this with Pure Organic Henna - 50grams of each, have 90% grey hair. Mixed henna & 1teaspoon of consentrated lemon juice the night before. Then added indigo with 4 teaspoons of coffee granules & hot water. Left on for 2 hours, came out a dark auburn colour which I love, will be using these products forever😃 And will recommend to friends

Excellent natural dye
Wednesday, 9 December 2015  |  Natacha

I have recently started to colour my hair and wanted to use a product that only contained natural ingredients - no nasties such as ammonia on my hair thank you.

I came across the Pure Organic range from Suvarna and am absolutely delighted with the quality and results I get every time.
I have fine long brown hair with greys starting to show with age.

I use a combination of Pure Organic Henna & Indigo leaf powder (two separate applications) and it works wonders. The greys are completely covered and my hair is left deeply conditioned: soft, thicker and shinier.

I have used these products three times and am completely satisfied. This is now part of my "beauty regime" and I will be purchasing on a regular basis! Thanks Suvarna.

I used to have mid-brown/auburn hair which gone dark grey, and almost white around the hairline. I discovered herbal hair dyes recently and had been using the 'Its Pure Herbal Hair Colour Natural Brown' on its own to cover up. I was pleased with the coverage generally, but it was a bit too orange around the hairline where my hair was a paler grey, so I decided to try this Indigo powder on top. I dyed my hair all over with Natural Brown colour first, for about three hours, and washed that out. Then I mixed up a small amount of the Indigo, spread it on gloved hands, and smoothed it through my hair, starting at the hairline. Within about a minute it started to look darker, so I panicked a bit and washed it out. But I love the result! In that short time it had taken all the orange out of the first dye and left a warm brown, a bit darker than before but more natural looking. I can't believe that a combination of these two natural products can produce such a rich natural looking coverage. Highly recommended.

Used this 2-3 weeks after using henna-indigo mix that turned far too red. Absolutely amazing, I followed the instructions inside the box and got exactly the cool dark brown I was after. It did turn my hair green for a couple of hours after washing out but with an emergency shampoo it faded completely (the henna I used was from another company and had added chemicals which the instructions do warn against although I think I just left it on too long). Overall very very happy with your product, will be returning

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
