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 on grey hair.

If you do not have grey but have red or brown hair you can apply the indigo directly to your hair to darken it.
 
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.
 
It is not advisable to lighten your hair with chemical bleach after using this Indigo.

Very happy
Sunday, 10 May 2020  |  Rioin

Iíve been using henna on my hair for over ten years and this brand is by far the best. So easy to apply with hardly and mess. I used indigo for the first time and Iím loving the brown colour. Only problem is I mixed the recommended amount for my long hair and used less than half of it. Iíve put whatís left in the freezer and will mix with more indigo for next application. Form now on Iíll be only buying suvarna henna and indigo.

Indigo real thing
Friday, 3 April 2020  |  Kristina

Adore black hair colour. But all chemical black dyes damage my hair more than bleach. Bought indigo in african cosmetic shops before, but got no colour out of it all. Even after sitting in a bowl with water it wouldn't get any blue-ish shine on top that would show the release of colour. This indigo worked at once. My light brown hair (with lots of bleach somewhere underneath) turned very dark brown after 2 hours. I love that the shade is kinda ashy, doesn't look "wig-like" extremely dark. The only downside is I felt burning sensation on forehead while dying, it was red for a couple of hours afterwards. I used half of the pack on my shortish fine hair, next application should make it completely black. My hair feels much stronger and healthier after i damaged it badly with regular dyes and lighteners.

Easy to use and very effective
Monday, 31 December 2018  |  Nik

I had been using henna without indigo for a bit and it is a relief to see a darker shade again! Soft and easy to wash out - or certainly when mixed directly with henna. Very quick service, too - I am definitely going to be a repeat customer.
