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.
