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.

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.

Real shine of my hair

Due to constant exposure to sunlight and dust, my hair color has become dull and light. I have used this Indigo powder and it really brought back the real shine of my hair. The color looks completely natural.

Indigo Powder for hair

I bought the indigo powder for hair through the Henna Guy online. I got the indigo powder within 7 days. I followed the instructions on the back of the package for dying my hair. My hair is shiny and dark brown because I mix 1/3 henna powder with 2/3 of indigo powder. Several persons complemented about my shiny hair so I told them how I color my hair with the natural henna & indigo powders for the last 8 months.
