Indigo For Men and Women
Indigo hair dye like its cousin henna hair dye also comes from a variety of plants (dyer’s knotweed, woad etc). Indigo used with henna will turn hair many shades of brown or jet black. To get jet black it some people may require a two step process. You can get browns by mixing indigo and henna together (no lemons!), the more indigo you add the darker it will get. Our Indigo is 100% Natural.
We all are around Indigo on a daily bases. It is in our jeans, our food we eat on a daily bases (food coloring) and many other fabrics. Indigo is a green color and smells like frozen vegetables. Some say frozen peas, some say spinach.
Our natural Indigo hair dye is easily mixed with water. Once mixed with water you will see blue start to appear at the top. The blue is a good sign you have good Indigo. Indigo hair dye is ready instantly. For best results, dye hair with henna first. It works on just about any hair.
If you have chemically died your hair in the last year or are not sure how it will turn out, make sure to do a strand test. Take hair from a brush or cut a small strand out. Indigo is a permanent hair dye and will not wash out! It will fade over time but it acts like a chemical hair dye without the chemicals!
Make sure to discard any leftover indigo powder. Only mix what you need! Sunlight and air can ruin Indigo over time so make sure you seal any leftover Indigo powder in a zip lock bag and store it in a dark location. Our Indigo and Henna is 2 ply air tight sealed for freshness and to keep sunlight out.
It takes up to 24 hours for hair to set in final color. After you remove the Indigo you maybe a bit blue, this is ok! By Morning it should be black and then a gorgeous jet black!
Always make sure to cover floor and clothes when applying henna. You will need a friend to help you.
