The henna and indigo are separately packed in vacuum sealed plastic bag so that they stay fresh.

This henna is suitable for body art or for hair colouring. Body art henna is excellent for colouring hair  as it is more finely sifted it has a smoother less gritty texture. 

The indigo (indigofera tinctoria) is a blue/green tint on grey hair and is best used together with or just after henna. If your hair is brown or red with no grey you can apply indigo directly to your hair without henna.
Combining Henna with Indigo to get a red/brown, brown or a black hair colour
When henna is used with indigo it can give shades of different browns to black. The resulting colour depends on which method you use, how long you leave the dye on for, and the proportion of henna and indigo you use.
Method 1 (double application): Dye your hair first with henna so it goes auburn/red, then dye your hair with indigo, so that the auburn/red turns to brown. To achieve the desired shade, you need to make sure you leave the indigo on for the right amount of time. The longer the indigo is left on for, the darker it will be. If you leave it for the maximum time it can go black.
Method 2 (single application): Soak the henna over night. In the morning, mix the indigo with water, then thoroughly mix the henna mixture together with the indigo mixture. To get a more reddish-brown shade, use a large percentage of henna. To get a darker brown, use a larger proportion of indigo. To get a black shade use Method 1.
Everyone’s hair is different and will take the colour differently, so some trial and error may be necessary to get the desired shade.


How much henna and indigo do you need 
The amounts given below are for average hair - if you have fine hair you may need less, or if you have thick hair you may need more. The amounts given are for the total amount of powder needed for one application. 

short / chin length hair - 50 to 70 gms per application
shoulder length hair - 100 to 120 gms per application
mid back length hair - 200 to 250 gms per application
If you are mixing henna and indigo in one single application (Method 2), the combined weight of the two powders should be what is given in the above guidlines.
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.

Caused glossy hair, had a much better effect that pre mixed indigo and henna. I am very happy with the product. The Instruction Manual was thorough and helped me create the colour I wanted and apply it properly. Highly recommend.

Excellent quality
Sunday, 14 April 2019  |  Katia

I've been using henna and indigo from Suvarna for nearly a year and I am very satisfied with the results. Compared to other henna powders I used in the past this is the best quality so far. It's not messy to apply as it mixes very well into a smooth cream which doesn't run on the face and neck. The colour is very good if I leave it for at least 4 hours. Sometimes stubborn greys don't get coloured. Overall they turn into medium light brown.

Henna and Indigo organics powder
Monday, 1 October 2018  |  Harsha

Thank you for the above I had an allergic reaction to my original hair dye and I used the above. The condition of my hair was lovely. I was going to leave the mixture in my hair for 5 hrs but was a bit worried I might get a reaction so I just left it for 3hrs. My grey's went a light brown colour, my original hair colour is dark brown but I think if I leave it in longer next time will go darker. The instruction sheets for very clear and easy to follow.
I would recommend this product. Thank you

Excellent product to cover grey.
Sunday, 20 May 2018  |  Rose

Really excellent henna and indigo 80/20 mix covers my 70% grey absolutely and I only leave it on for 2hrs. As advised I add a little cider vinegar to henna mix and leave it in a warm place for 2hrs then add the indigo & apply.. I started using because I became allergic to hair dye. This is 100% natural and even my sensitive skin likes it. I end up with the most gorgeous dark red colour and the condition is amazing. It also seems to have added volume. So pleased. Highly recommended. Suvarna are also very nice to do business with. A very good company. Thank you.

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.
