Product Description

Indigo Powder for Hair is a natural plant. The powdered leaves have a natural dark blue dye. Indigo is used along with henna to dye darker hair tones.

What color tones will you achieve? 

  • reddish brown when using proportions of 75% henna and 25% indigo. This method is called a one step process.
  • brown tones when using proportions of 50% indigo and 50% henna. This method is called a one step process.
  • dark chocolate brown tones when using proportions of 75% indigo and 25% henna. This method is called a one step process.
  • Black Tones when you use henna first at 100%, and then second step of indigo at 100%. This method is called a two step process. 
  • Apply indigo with your henna application to get browner tones. This method is called a one step process. 

Instructions and recipes will also come with every purchase of indigo.

Our indigo is packaged in double plastic bags inside of foil packaging. This ensures freshness.

Please note: this indigo differs from our organic indigo. They are from two different farms, and the results vary. This difference is similar to the difference in color results between henna powders. This particular indigo is best for resistant hair and grey hairs. We recommend this indigo for our clients wanting dark tones including black tones. 

Fall Batch 2014

More Info

Dye release for indigo is 15-20 minutes. Please mix with warm to hot water only. A bit of salt added to the indigo will help it adhere better to your hair strands, if needed.

Using indigo for brown to black tones

Veronica's recipe: She used 60/40 ratio of henna to indigo, with the henna mixed with very strong, cool black tea. Then after that she did two very strong glosses of mostly henna with a little bit of indigo.

    Posted by Kelly on 21st Jan 2015

    Great product.

  2. covers gray

    Posted by Unknown on 24th Oct 2014

    this indigo is the best I've ever used to cover gray.

  3. you want black? use this!

    Posted by tara c on 19th Oct 2014

    I use red raj but have been wanting black hair, but I held off on buying real indigo in lieu of a well known health food store brand of 'black' (indigo & henna mix). My roots stayed red no matter how many times I used it. I finally ordered indigo for hair and boy am I glad I did! I did the 2-step: slept in red raj/amla blend, rinsed (no conditioner) in am and put the indigo on for 2 hrs. In my indigo was salt (to stick) and xanthan gum (to hold it together on my head), with warm water. Applied immediately. Did not wait for dye release. The results: glossy jet black hair from root to tip! My roots are as black as night. Thanks for this amazing product! Don't mess around w less-get the best! You won't regret it!!! I could see and smell how FRESH this stuff was out of the bag!! Thanks Khadija :)

  4. nothing magical!

    Posted by sara on 10th Sep 2014

    There was nothing magical about this indigo, I thought I would get rid of my gray strands with it but nah! It didn't work for me, although I did notice my hair color darken over all but doesn't work on gray hair.

    Henna Sooq Reply: Thank you for your feedback. We're sorry to hear this henna didn't work for you. It is very sensitive to the time needed for dye release. Did you contact our team to ask for assistance in going over your recipe? We would have loved to make recommendations to help you have success with these powders. Sometimes minor tweaks are needed for success as these powders do cover grey hair.

  5. best indigo ever

    Posted by claire masselot on 23rd May 2014

    I am so happy with all Henna Sooq products. After a shampoo with brahmi powder, I have just applied this following recipe to my hair and it looks shiny, deep brown as I like. The dough was also easy to apply and to rinse, which is not always the case....
    I have medium brown hair and I think I found the perfect recipe:
    - 1/3 organic henna (I prepared it a day before and left it at ambient temperature all night) mixed with half lemon juice and half demineralized water
    - 2/3 indigo mixed with demineralized water
    - 1 tbs aloe vera powder
    - 1 tbs amla powder
    - 10 drops of bergamot essential oil
    - 2 tbs or organic camellia oil

    First, thank you for sending the Indigo in a timely fashion. I didn't have to wait long for the product. I'm ALL NATURAL and have been using the Beautiful Collection rinses to try and cover my grey; especially the stubborn grey around my edges. The results basically left a black stain around my edges, but the grey was still ever so present. Many times I would end up using a brown/black eyeliner to color in the grey. I recently heard about the Henna/Indigo two-step process on youtube. After using Nupur 9 Henna for 10 hours, I prepped the Indigo, right before washing out the henna, using warm coconut milk and 4tsp. of salt (see instructions). It took about 15-20 to wash out the henna, giving the Indigo just enough time to release the color. I must say the smell was very interesting, but bearable. I was anxious to see if this would live up to the hype I'd been hearing about. I washed out the Indigo the next morning and to my SURPRISE my hair was a beautiful rich black color all over and yep, even my stubborn edges. I was concerned that my hair would be a blue/black unnatural color, but it wasn't. It was naturally dark BLACK and BEAUTIFUL! To top if off, there were ABSOLUTELY NO BLACK STAINS around my edges. This by far has been the best self-coloring natural treatment I've ever had. Thanks to Hennasooq I will DEFINITELY be using this product again and spreading the word about my AMAZING RESULTS.

  7. Didn't cover

    Posted by Terrilla on 25th Apr 2014

    The henna changed the grey hair orange and when I applied the indigo to the hair it did not cover the orange so my hair is still orange.

    HS Reply: Did you get a one on one consult with Henna Sooq to see if there was something that affected your mixing process or for us to suggest a few things for you to help? From the reviews you can see that most people do get great results from the indigo, but sometimes it can be really tricky to get the hang of, or different batches need slight tweaking in mixing. Please let us know

  8. Fantastic!

    Posted by Alicia on 19th Apr 2014

    I have been coloring my hair black with chemical dyes for a few years now and wanted to go natural. I used this with jamila henna in a two step proccess and I got wonderful results. I used both products for the minimal amount of time needed in order to get color and I got exactly what I wanted for my first time using indigo. I'll definitely buy this again in the future. Can't beat the price too.

  9. Surprised....

    Posted by Unknown on 16th Mar 2014

    I used this as part of a two step process to make my hair black. I do have some premature grays and had been looking for a natural alternative to color them. I started with Moroccan henna, which produced the expected result: my gray hair turned red. I mixed my indigo with salt and warm water and left it for 15 minutes. I applied it generously, left it for 3 hours, and found after rinsing that I had a patch of bright red hair near the crown of my head. To its credit, the grays along my hairline are now black.

    HS Reply: For any areas that remain red toned please do reapply the indigo to those areas. Glad those hairline greys were covered nicely!

  10. fair results

    Posted by Kathy on 8th Mar 2014

    i followed the results mixing with warm water and lemon juice.i waited 6 hours and applied to natural African American hair that was washed the day before with no product in my hair.i slept with the henna in my hair under a plastic cap for 8 hours and washed it out with warm water only.after twelve hours i mixed the indigo with a teaspoon of salt and warm water as the directions stated to help indigo bind to hair better.i applied indigo to clean hair that had no product after it had sat for an hour. i let it sit in my hair over night under a bag.i rinsed it out with warm water only as i had done with the henna but the color almost completely rinsed off my hair.i then put conditioner only in my hair and after a few minutes i rinsed with warm water and most of the remaining color rinsed off.the ten percent that remained on my hair also rinsed out with the next two conditioner only hair washings over the next two weeks.there is not even a reddish tinge left on my gray hair now and the process was done 6 weeks ago.i used the indigo for resistant hair and jamila skin dye quality henna

    HS Reply: Just wanted to ask but did you let the indigo sit for an hour? It might be that for the henna you need a henna that is better for brown to black tones and has a better dye content like our Moroccan henna, and for indigo not sure if you meant it sat out for 1 hour as that is too long. It needs only 15-20 minutes max for dye release and mixed more so with a hot water temperature for a good dye boost. Not boiling just hot but that you can touch it. If you can let us know what you washed it out with to make sure it was a gentle/color safe shampoo/conditioner.
