Ask a question about this product

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.

  2. Great Alternative to Chemical Dyes! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 11th Nov 2015

    This was my first time using indigo powder and I am very pleased with the results. While I have used henna to achieve an auburn color on my hair {I have dark brown type 3c natural hair} I decided I wanted to color my hair black. Since I’ve stopped using all chemicals on my hair, specifically relaxers, I wanted to keep true to my 3 year streak of going ‘chemical-free’ in terms of hair dye. My scalp just can’t handle chemical processes. SO, I did the two-step henna & indigo process. It took an eternity, which is par for the course, but I was so pleased with the results! My only qualm is with the texture of the powder. I have fine strands, so the finest sift of henna is what I use. Indigo is not a fine powder which I wasn’t expecting. It didn’t spread as easily or go as far, and in hindsight, I should have used 300 g instead of the 100 g on my hair. I have the appearance of black hair in indoor light and still have a slight auburn/dark brown hue in the sun. Subtle changes, but changes nonetheless. I think I will try this again as my hair grows out!

  3. Best Pigmentation 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 30th Oct 2015

    I've tried a few Indigo products and they are usually dark brown, or dark blue or purple and don't last. This Indigo is black and the darkest and so far, it's lasting and looks very natural. It covered my gray!

  4. Black Hair! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 10th Oct 2015

    In the past I used the 2 two process to dye my type 4a hair black. It was previously bleached and colored. My roots started to grow out and I didn't want to bleach my hair again. The indigo and henna were perfect! The first time I did it I got a really nice deep black color. Then I repeated the process 6 weeks later and even got some blue black tones. I experienced some dryness before, but this time a deep condition after took care of that!

  5. Love how it covers my grey roots 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 6th Oct 2015

    I uses this indigo after I henna my hair with Henna Sooq's red raj henna. I love,love,love how it covers my grey roots. I have fallen in love with my natural 4a/4b textured hair. The health of my hair has drastically improved since I have added the henna/indigo process to my hair routine.

  6. Very satisfied 5 Star Review

    I love the result! I have used indigo powder from different shops; the quality of indigo powder I bought from Henna Sooq is quite impressive.

  7. Black Hair Color 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 16th Sep 2015

    Indigo is my prefered way of keeping my hair the black color I like. I originally wanted black to correct a previous dying mistake, now I love the black on me! I first use henna and amla on my hair just to help the indigo stick better and give my hair volume and thickness. After rinsing that out I mix indigo, salt and warm water and apply the to my hair for a couple hours. The result are amazing!

  8. Great for Gray Hair Coverage! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 31st Jul 2015

    I had been using the Organic Indigo for some time, not reading closely that this would work best for my gray hair. It really did a great job and got my hair as dark as I wanted. I used it with the Moroccan Henna and the combination gave me the results I wanted!

  9. Indigo 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 14th Jul 2015

    I was very please with the prompt delivery service. I have no complaints with the indigo. I mixed mines with the henna to cover up the grays and it did just that.

  10. Fast Developing and application time! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 6th Apr 2015

    I am a newbie to using henna/indigo. I was a bit nervous, but I read all the great information on the website to develop my paste for the henna and indigo. I was going for chocolate brown - but I ended with slight red undertones - which is actually fine. I think next time I will add less henna and a bit more indigo. I also included a bit of aloe vera to the henna and a bit of salt to the indigo. Overall I am pleased with the immediate healthiness of my hair. When applying my paste - I became calm - whereas with boxed colors I tend to be stressed for some reason, but the henna/indigo mixture was relaxing. Further, the paste was easy to apply no mess at all! I will continue to buy from henna sooq!
