I stumbled across this website whilst researching natural hair colourants after having had an allergic reaction to a chemical dye even though I had been used it for years. I have used the Indigo and Henna twice now and I am really pleased with the results. It has totally covered my greys and I will definitely be ordering this product again.
I have been using this for a while now and yes the colour is good . However I am getting fed up of doing it every two weeks. it's a long process as to do the two method process - henna one day and indigo the next . I am grey mainly on the parting line and this is the worst as it starts fading after the two weeks and the copper starts showing. Is there any way to keep the color longer as I am seriously consider going back to maybe a longer lasting dye ? Any thoughts ?
I bought Henna, Indigo and Cassia to make a mix to cover my greying roots. My hair had been previously dyed by the hairdresser with a light coppery brown. I prepared a mix of 50% henna 30% cassia and 20% indigo with warm water and I applied straightaway it to my hair for 3 hours. This blend managed to cover my few greys in a caramel shade, which looked a bit light to start with but then darkened up after about 48 hours. It also added a lovely coppery brown gloss to the rest of my hair. Next time I may tryv to increase both the henna and indigo by 5% and decrease the cassia by 10% to achieve a slightly darker shade on my roots. So far I am really happy with the quality of the herbs and with the results.
I used henna and indigo on my hair for the first time yesterday and the results have been amazing. I purchased the products almost a month ago but been very scared to try them on. I often see people with organge hair once they have used henna. I have been colouring my hair with semi permanent dye and decided I had to change it as it was damaging my hair a lot and as I still in my late 20s I didn't think it was the right thing to do for a prolonged period of time. I have black hair and of Sri Lankan origin and I was nervous the products may completely change the colour. After a month of procrastinating, I finally picked up the courage yesterday. I soaked 100g of henna with 250ml of pure lemon juice and 80ml of black tea (soaked 4 tea bags) and let it rest for 20 hours. I applied henna and let it sit for 2 1/2 hours and washed until the water was clear. This changed the white/grey hair into a deep red/copper. After towel drying and a quick blow dry, I mixed 100g of indigo with Luke warm water and applied straight on my hair. I let that sit for 1 1/4 hours and the results are fab. I couldn't have hoped for anything better. Thank you Suvarna - you're a life saver!
