  • 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.

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.

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.

  1. Great Product 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 13th Apr 2017

    This is my first time using this product and it worked well on my natural hair. I love it and will definitely order it again.

  2. Ibdigo 5 Star Review

    Love the indigo mixed with henna for these stubborn grays

  3. Hoping for better results 3 Star Review

    Posted by on 28th Mar 2017

    I used the Indigo after my henna to cover my gray hair.My hair is about 50% gray. After using both products my gray hair was drk brown. I was hoping for black. This was my first time using this method. I am not dissatisfied but more disappointed. I will try this process again. Maybe I did something wrong.

    HS reply: Thank you so much for leaving a review. Sometimes it takes a second application. Make sure you do a two-step process for black tones. It should work better as you do 1 or more applications. Greys can be stubborn! We hope this helps.

  4. Great! 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 25th Mar 2017

    With the 2 step process, this helped with grey coverage but had to be done every 2 weeks as either new growth comes in or it fades off.

  5. NOT FOR ME 2 Star Review

    Posted by on 23rd Mar 2017

    My hair didn't agree with this mixed with the henna at all. The process takes all day and to have the results of my hair looking dull and feeling brittle was disappointing. So, I called Khadijah to get assistance and she is always pleasant!! She suggested using the aloe vera powder to assist with making it feel softer. I ordered the aloe vera powder and it only made my hair feel rough. Luckily, I had ordered the Rhassoul mud earlier and decided to use it. I'm VERY glad that I had this b/c it made my hair feel SOOOOOO much better. I'm glad that I had the Rhassoul mud b/c it was a life saver!! But, I love the mud clay and will continue to use it as my conditioner.

  6. Maybe..... 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 5th Mar 2017

    I just can't get this to stick to my hair! I' added salt this time, (2nd time using indigo). Trying to achieve black hair. Help!!!!

  7. Will Purchase Again 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 5th Mar 2017

    I purchased this product for the “2-step method” to dye my hair black. The indigo did successfully dye my hair the color I wanted; my hair is naturally a very dark brown, but even the few white hairs have been dyed as well. I will say that this indigo was the easiest I have ever had to mix, and that I did not have any bad skin reactions from using it. Also, the shipping of this product was quick.

  8. Excellent product! Does what it says! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 27th Feb 2017

    I tried the two step method but I prefer the one step method. I mixed 75% Indigo to 25% Jamila Henna and got a beautiful dark brown tone. After 2nd application most of my gray was covered. I have a small patch of stubborn grays at my crown that will require a 3rd application (in that area only) that I'm confident will then be covered. The best thing I like about this product is the natural look as compared to the results of commercial dyes. I also prefer to apply to damp hair and I spitz my hair with warm water as needed during the application. I leave on for 4 hours then co-wash. I have found that shampooing immediately after washes most of the dye away so there's not enough dye left on the hair to cure over the next couple of days in order to achieve my desired color. The shine is awesome!

  9. 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

  10. 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
