Indigo for Hair

(167 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.

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 - No Reaction.

    So! I'm not sure if my product was not from a fresh batch or if it was adulterated. There was hardly any dye release when I had the indigo stand for 15 even 20 - 30 mins. The paper towel test only revealed green. No blue or dark coloration. The paste just remained green. So for my first phase 50/50 and then second phase indigo my hair just never really changed. In the end I got lavender colored hair. I would like to think your products are pure, based on most reviews therefore I am thinking I got an old batch of indigo.. The two stars is in anticipation that my other products are viable.. Since this review is based on the reaction of the indigo.. I'm sure I stand to be corrected in regards to my opinion of the products reaction. Please feel free.

    HS Reply: Thank you for your feedback. If you can email us at we can definitely go over these steps. Our indigo is very fresh and the dates are on every package so that you can know what batch it came from. We just received some in the last few months and it's good actually for up to 3 years. What did you mix it with? Did you try to allow it to sit even longer to wait for that bright blue sheen? Did you let it sit or did you stir it constantly as it release?

    Worked great 50/50 with my henna for a rich medium brown as a 1 step treatment. Will continue to purchase for root touchups.

    This is a very nice smooth Indigo powder. The one I used to use was Light Mountain this is way better. It does dye release fast as expected and mixed it separate waited 25 min and added to my Henna at 35%, great results of copper to brownish on my grays and I love it. You can use 50/50 to get darker or follow up with a two-step if you want black.

  • Love it
