I was super excited to try the indigo and henna mexture along with the amla powder but unfortunately my shipment was lost by the warehouse!!
Indigo covered my Grey's
I usually use the pure henna mixed with the Indigo to cover Grey's and enhance my natural dark brown color. It works well with Grey's colored to a dark Auburn on my natural color. This time I used it as a two step (pure henna first then Indigo after). The pure henna acted as a coating and conditioning treatment and the Indigo brought me to a natural black even color. I am very satisfied with the results. I did need to deep condition afterwards because I have dry hair and it needed moisturizing.
