  1. I may be allergic to indigo! 2 Star Review

    Posted by on 19th Feb 2017

    I just recently ordered the indigo powder in hopes of dying my bright orange greys to black. I was really skeptical because I wanted to order the organic indigo but due to it not being available, I ordered the regular indigo. Also, I read that it's better for stubborn greys. Yesterday, I did the 2 step process. Henna first then the indigo. I mixed everything according to my likings. I used the quality Manila henna. Of course my greys were bright orange. Then I mixed the indigo up. Let it sit for dye release for 30mins. I did add salt to make it stick better to hair. The smell was very strong but proceded to put on my hair. Once all the indigo was in my hair, minutes my scalp start itching, smell was strong, heads started tingling with a little burning sensation and it felt like I waa going to pass out. It almost reminded that's how my scalp reacts when I use to use commercial dyes. I'm like am I having an allergic reactions to this indigo dye!? Needless to say, I left it on for 3hrs and rinsed out. I did not turn my greys into black only a deep brown color which in fine with but my scalp is irritated, sore and I have a bad headache. I writing this review today because my scalp is still sore and tender and I have an headache still. I don't know if I should use organic indigo or non period. I really like the results of the indigo toning down the orange look after I henna my hair. I brought 2 boxes and still have one left. Hopefully someone can tell me if I'm allergic. Don't want to go through that again. I really had high hopes for this product. Just don't know now!

    HS Reply: Do you also know what might be in ingredients of your manila henna brand you used? The smell can be strong with indigo. We recommend adding essential oils. Some can be allergic to indigo. We're so sorry to hear this. We definitely recommend doing patch tests first especially with using new herbs. You may be able to use the organic indigo as it's more mild. But please make sure to patch test first to be sure you don't have allergies to them and any new herbs you use. Should you like to speak more about this please give us a call at 410-579-4543.- Khadija

  2. Doesn't cover resistant grey 2 Star Review

    Posted by on 27th Jan 2017

    I love the color and quality of this product. My hair felt great after using it, better than with others I've tried. However, my resistant greys turned bright orange. Like scary bright orange on my dark brown hair! It's been over 48 hours since I had my hair professionally colored with this product, and the orange has dimmed slightly, but I'm definitely not getting dark brown with dark brown greys. It's dark brown with bright orange greys. I'm going to try a root touch up with a higher concentration of indigo this evening. I hope it will help. But it's going to be a huge effort for me if I have to do this twice every time. For those of us with really busy schedules, it would be nice to have a product that will achieve the desired results with the first application. It's already a long enough process!

    HS Reply: Thank you for review and feedback. We'd love to discuss one on one what changes we could do to make this work better for your grey hair. It definitely is our best product to create dark brown tones and should be covering your grey hair. That's great that you found a professional henna colorist to do your hair. We'd love to reach out to them as we don't tend to meet many colorists that specializes in henna natural hair color. I'll reach out to you personally via email so that we can find a way to make this work for you with success. Thank you! - Khadija

    Posted by on 23rd Dec 2016

    A new adventure! Can't go back!

  4. Best Indigo Ever! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 11th Dec 2016

    I recommend this product to anyone who wants to color without chemicals. I did the two-step process. First, I used henna that purchased from Henna Sooq a while back. Then I used the indigo. My results were awesome! It covered my grey hairs. The color was a rich, deep black. Just like I like it! Henna Sooq, I love your products and I shall return to buy more!

  5. Best thing to cover grey! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 11th Oct 2016

    I have been using henna for about two years. While I love it, I often felt that the grey coverage was a little too orangey but I lived with it. I began searching You Tube for better ways to use henna for grey coverage. I came across videos that provided proof that adding indigo could provide better coverage! I checked out henna Sooq (has the BEST henna!) for indigo. I mixed at 80/20 and the coverage is AWESOME! Love the results!

  6. A New Adventure 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 7th Oct 2016

    A little intimidating at first, as this was my first time. A very satisfied believer of this coloring process. Thanks Henna Sooq :)

  7. As always 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 3rd Oct 2016

    Henna Sooq is the best. Fast delivery, I absolutely love this company.

  8. Easy to use! Great results 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 13th Sep 2016

    This product is very easy to use and mix. I use with the Moroccan Henna in a one step process about 60% Henna/40% Indigo and I love the results. I'm about 10% grey and this gives me really good coverage. I highly recommend.

  9. Good first use! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 29th Aug 2016

    This was my first time using Indigo, and I am IN LOVE! I have brown hair naturally and have only dyed red tones with henna. This was my first time going black, and even though I was hoping for blue tones and don't see any yet, I am patient because it could take a few days, or even a few applications. Even so, I LOVE the rich deep black I got with my two step process! It is so shiny and dark, I love it! Because I was going for blue tones this was my process: I have layered longish hair down to my bra straps, so for the first step I pre-mixed 100g Red Raj with 3-4 TBSPs Amla powder to release overnight. I used room temperature water, and nothing else since I read that Amla powder adds acidity as a substitute to lemon juice or tea; also I read it was good to use to being out stronger indigo color. For the second step I mixed 100g Indigo with warm water with salt (bring out blue tones) and let that release while I washed my hair. Then I mixed my henna and indigo together and applied it for my first step process that I left in for two hours. I had heard any longer than that and the henna color would start overpowering the indigo. I washed my hair and immediately noticed it was much darker, but probably more of a chocolate brown color with definitely some warm red tones peeking in. For my final application I mixed 200gof indigo with more warm water and salt to release while I rinsed out my first application. Putting just the indigo in was definitely a crazy new texture. VERY messy, so spread something out on the floor during! It was very crumbly and we had quite the task rubbing it in! Both times I wrapped my head in Saran Wrap, a plastic Baggie, plus a shirt added to hold in warmth that I got from blow drying the mixture wrapped on my head for ten minutes at four beginning of each leave in time. I again left this in for two hours, and washed out with just water, and WOW!! Love love love it! So shiny and fun! I definitely plan on doing this again!

  10. Nice product a bit Gritty 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 20th Jul 2016

    The product arrived quickly and mixed easily. I mixed this with 1/2 tablespoon of salt and warm water and used it with Henna for a nice brown color. It came out really nice. I'll do a youtube video in around 6 to 8 weeks when I use it again. StylingNaturally
