(140 reviews) Write a Review


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 can be downloaded via the Instructions tab.

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.

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.

  • Did NOT WORK-Bad Quality!

    Posted by Michele Marcie on 24th Jan 2020

    I have been using Henna for several years, indigo especially! I am very familiar with the 2 step process. I henna’ed my hair as normal it went well, then immediately prepared the the indigo. Using hot water and salt to ensure a good stain. Left it on my hair for 5 hours and NOTHING happened! No staining at all, my hair was still the bright red. I thought this to be odd. I then called to speak with someone about the process. The rep was not helpful at all. Told me I did must have did it incorrectly...which I did NOT! My henna experience expands over 10 12 years. Needless to say to took her advice, which was to add indigo to my henna application to create a darker base. THIS DID NOT WORK AT ALL!!! After two applications of a henna/indigo mix almost mixing equal parts this poor quality indigo would not stain my hair. I do have chemicals in my hair and have been chemical free for about 15 years and NEVER have I had this happen.
    As with a few other customers this indigo did not work and the poor explanation for this low quality product is unacceptable.
    Nothing was offered for time and money wasted except accusations of my wrong doing!
    Magically...I used indigo from another company and my hair is black!

    HS Reply: Thank you for your feedback. We want to reach out to you just to offer further support but we don't have an order under this name for you. We're sorry that our indigo didn't work for you. We use this very same indigo professionally in our salon without any issues. We really wonder why it wouldn't work well for your hair. Ours is 100% natural without PPD and it's possible other companies might have other additives to enhance their indigo and herbs in it to make it work. Especially other brands that aren't DIY like ours is. It's hard to compare since there could be other factors involved that other brands are like versus our indigo. We want you to have the overall best results. If our indigo wasn't a good fit, then we do want you always to do what works best for you. Good luck!

  • Love My Indigo

    Posted by Bernice Muldrow on 5th May 2019

    I love this Indigo!! I followed the video instructions and it came out like she said. This is my third ordering it and I’ve even told people on my job and even my rental office about how good it covers my grey and just being able to use a henna that’s good! With no chemicals involved, just all natural ingredients!
    So thank you Henna Sooq for all that you do and for such a big heart!

    Much love to you all!

  • Didn't work

    Posted by nerline on 22nd Mar 2019

    Since I brought this product base on this review, I thought it was right to give my review of this product here. I brought this product two weeks ago, using the discount code( it worked), I was really excited to use it because of this video. I received it a few days after I order it, so delivery was quick. I decided to use it yesterday, I followed all the step, and everything. The henna worked exactly like she said it would work, that made me hopeful that the indigo would do the same. But I was wrong, I put the indigo in my hair and slept with it. I had it in my hair for 7-8hrs before I washed it off. When I washed it off, it was like I had never put it in my hair at all because the parts that were orange stayed orange. I didn't freak out because in the video she does say some people have to do it twice before it really work, so I decided to do it over again, since I had some left over. This time I kept it on for 6-7hrs before I washed it off again. This time the orange hairs were a darker red hue but that's it, it didn't turn black at all, which is what I wanted. Anyway, I'm done buying from this company, I'm going to try to find a better indigo product to see if I can fix this mess.

    HS Reply: We're sorry to hear that our indigo didn't work for you. If you'd like to go over your recipe with us, please don't hesitate to reach out as we don't recall hearing from you. We'd love to know what liquid was used when mixing and how long it sat out for? Was there any other herbs or oils added to your indigo? Also if you're doing a two step process, what we recommend for those having trouble within indigo, is to make a brown base first with henna and indigo rather then henna alone, and then following up with indigo as a second step. This makes a huge difference. Good luck! - KC

  • Indigo for Hair

    Posted by Charity Shown on 3rd Feb 2019

    I've repurchased this indigo a few times now and will continue to do so. The dye releases in the time frame suggested in the instructions, it's effective, and I'm not concerned something funky will turn out due to additives-I trust henna sooq!

  • Great coverage on grey

    Posted by Niyah Love Catherine Ann Workman Benson on 18th Sep 2018

    I use indigo to cover my grey hair in a two step henna/indigo process. The indigo is very rich in color and I get a beautiful deep brown with highlights on my 50% grey hair.
