Indigo for Hair

(168 reviews) Write a Review

Indigo Powder for Hair is a natural plant from India. Indigo is used along with henna to dye darker shades naturally.

Here are a selection of shades you can achieve using henna and indigo, below:

  • 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.
  • Optional, if you have VERY resistant greys, you can use 50/50 of henna and indigo to create a brown base and then follow up with indigo alone to get stubborn greys covered. This will result in dark brown or black on greys.*

Instructions and recipes can be downloaded via the Instructions tab.

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. 

*Always patch test every herb against allergies by doing a patch test. Indigo must not be used alone. Henna is the base and without it, the indigo will leave your hair green tinted.

Quantity 100 grams

Fall Crop 2020

Note: We apologize for the printing company for our new pouches, made an error on the back of the pouches and didn't change the organic indigo wording. Please note it is indigo for hair but disregard the organic terms on the back. It is still mixed the same.



Download Instructions:


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.

  • Indigo for Hair

    Posted by Celeste Cox on 21st Nov 2021

    I have tried other brands, Henna Sooq's Indigo for Hair is of superior quality and I have found it to work best on coloring my very resistant gray hair. I use this in the 2-step process with HS's Red Raj Henna/Indigo for Hair in the first step, followed with just Indigo for Hair in the second step to completely cover my gray and get a beautiful dark mahogany brown with reddish highlights. I am 100% satisfied with this product and a repeat customer!

  • Covers Resistent Grays!

    I have been using Henna Sooq Indigo for hair for almost 2 years. Naturally coloring my hair was very important to me and this was a dream find. My curls are left with a beautiful black sheen, and besides that, I love the customer support that I have always received, especially in the newbie stage.

  • Loved it!

    This helped me dye my hair such a beautiful shade of black with red/burgundy tones in the sun. Will definitely be repurchasing!

  • Great Indigo

    Amazing consistent indigo. I have used this multiple times over the years with excellent results. Mixes to a super smooth paste easily. My hair can be very dye resistant but this used over a layer of henna or as a henndigo gives black. I've even used a batch or 2 about 2 years after the "use by" date with no appreciable loss of dye potency.
