How to apply indigo powder on hair?

Indigo powder is applied same way as henna, but indigo itself does not really work on gray hair. It has to be either mixed with henna or applied on henna dyed hair. Here is a general idea on working with indigo powder to obtain desired results, these recommendations are assuming your original hair color is lighter than your desired color.

Desired Color Mixture
Light Brown 80% Henna + 20% Indigo +10% Cassia Obovata
Medium Brown 60% Henna + 25% Indigo+ 15% Cassia obovata
Dark Brown 40% Henna + 40% Indigo+ 20% Amla 
Black / JET Black 50% Henna + 50% Indigo (Two Step Process)

** Please note our pre-mixed colors i.e medium brown, dark brown contain other natural ingredients in correct ratios to obtain perfect desired results.

Why use Indigo powder to color your hair?

Indigo powder is safe to use as its without any harmful chemicals. It’s a natural dye that has been used for centuries for dyeing hair dark brown, black. More shades can be achieved by mixing with herbs like henna powder, cassia obovata, amla powder etc. Indigo dye not only helps coloring the grey naturally, it also adds a shine and conditions hair. Indigo powder has proven to be an excellent naturally occuring dye that is used globally as an alternative to chemical hair dyes.

Allergy Warning: Although our indigo powder is 100% natural and does not contain any chemicals, but some people may still be allergic to certain plants and natural products, to rule that out for indigo, please do a strand/skin test before full on application of Indigo Powder.

Really Nice Product

I used the natural Indigo color and it worked beautifully. Mild smell compared to other hair dyes, washes off skin easily, and the color is actually Indigo as shown on the pack (not blue or green or any other shade). I have dyed my hair a couple of dozen times and I think this is one of the best products I've used.

I've tried all different hair dyes, and as much I like the color right after applying Indigo Powder by The Henna Guys, most fade quickly and the color become dull. I decided I wanted to switch things up and instead of getting a soft black I wanted to try a blue-black. Let me tell you this color is amazing! Indoors you can see a difference, as far as darkness goes, it shows very well. But as soon as sunlight hits your hair, you can see all the beautiful blue tones! It hasn't faded the slightest bit. Bravo, The Henna Guys! Great product.

Best Hair Color Out there

My hair is coarse & aging. I have never used a boxed dye or powder color for hair that actually made my hair look healthier! Colored 4 days ago with Indigo Powder, went to the salon for a cut today & my stylist couldn't believe how soft my hair is :) Love that it only took a while to cover my white (grey) roots perfectly.

My first experience

I was facing hair fall problems for a few years and now, I hoped that this hair product can give new looks to my hair without damaging the roots. The first experience was impressive.
