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.

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.

  1. Works as expected 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 18th May 2016

    Did a henna/indigo one process to tone down the red from henna alone.. Worked pretty well.. Made my hair really soft & the color is as expected.. Warning: The smell is terrible though.

    HS Reply: The scent can be over powering we do agree. An easy fix to that is to just add one of our essential oils to your recipe and leave your hair smelling amazing.

  2. I would use again 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 5th May 2016

    I mixed Red Raj with water and let it sit for 4 hours. After 4 hours, I added water to indigo and let sit for 30 minutes. Then I added the indigo to the Red Raj henna and applied to my hair. I liked the consistency of the mixture and it was easy to wash out. My hair no has red undertone despite the indigo, which is what I was hoping for. I would use again, and I'm looking forward to the results after multiple use.

    This product works great to mix with henna and brings out a nice mahogany shade I like a lot.....together they cover the grey hairs I've been getting more lately due to my age, and I like to add a little aloe vera and lavendar oil, argan oil ( whatever I have on hand) and it's so nice , soft and shiny....thanks much Khadija and Henna Sooq, you have a great company ....Jo

    Mixed after using henna with two step extremely well.

  5. Can we say LOVE LOVE this Indigo 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 28th Mar 2016

    This is my 2nd time ordering from Henna Sooq and I am not disappointed. Ordered this along side Moroccan Henna to do the two step process . My hair came out so beautiful and shiny and black. I was in LOVE. It is true what the Henna Sooq rep noted this Indigo vs the Organic Indigo does give a deeper black color which I am in love with. My hair came out super shiny and black. Will be ordering this again.

  6. Great with Moroccan Henna 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 15th Mar 2016

    Blended well with Moroccan Henna. The first time I used about 30/70 Indigo to Henna, and will go with more Indigo next time as my hair is naturally almost black. I wanted to cover grays with a brown tone (vs. red/burgundy with Henna alone) and was a bit too conservative on the Henna just to be on the safe side. If you follow the mixing charts on the website you can't go too wrong and I am excited to try 40/60 or 50/50 next time to get a darker/browner tone on the grays. Great products on this site!

  7. Great Stuff 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 9th Mar 2016

    Easy mixing. Rinsed out clear and easy. I received my desired results of dark brown tone to cover my 80% grey hair. I used my stainless steel kitchen sink because my shower has grout and I was taking no chances.

  8. Awesome results 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 9th Mar 2016

    I used indigo with my henna, half and half. I was trying to blend my dark roots with my previously dyed ends. They were a brassy redish color (one henna application over chemical dye). The blend turned out nicely. The smell is not that bad. I enjoy earthy smelling things, so I'm not bothered by it. The paste was smooth and easy to apply with minimal mess. I left the mix on for 4 hours and it rinsed easily. I wonder if it will blend more into my roots with just an all indigo treatment without turning really black. My roots are dark brown and pure black is too harsh for me.

  9. 1st time Indigo user 4 Star Review

    I really appreciate the fast delivery by Henna Sooq. This product was fresh and did as expected. I will order again.

  10. 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!
