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. 

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.

  • Beautiful dark brown

    Posted by Maria J on 11th Oct 2020

    Got rid of the grays! It turned my hair a dark brown color which I love. It was my first time dyeing with henna, and I'm definitely going to keep using it.

  • First Time!

    Posted by Tessa Stueven on 25th Aug 2020

    This was my first experience dyeing my hair, using henna and indigo, and using Henna Sooq products and it went great! I love the Henna Sooq Youtube channel and I followed all of Khadijas tips and advice. I was very apprehensive of using henna before discovering Henna Sooq but the Youtube channel is so straightforward and makes the process far less scary lol. My hair went from a golden medium brown to a nice rich dark brown. I was going for black but I know first time indigo users may need multiple applications so I have placed another order. My hair is caucasion straight and knee length and pretty thick. I used the 2 step application method and in total used a total of about 900g of product altogether. I left in for 4 hours each application and washed out with the Sweet Orange Cleansing CoWash. I waited three days after dyeing to set the color before deep conditioning and my hair feels amazing! It looks so shiny and feels extra soft. Basically follow all of Khadijas advice, she speaks the truth! I love this company and I am excited to continue to support them. Thank you and Bless you all at Henna Sooq!

  • Henna & Indigo Didn't Work

    Posted by Kay on 10th Aug 2020

    I followed the directions to the "T", more than once, & the outcome was unfavorable. My grays hairs never changes from red/bright orange to my black natural hair color. These products were a waste of money.

    HS Reply: We're so sorry to hear that the products didn't work for you. Did you reach out to one of our colorists for a one on one? Indigo definitely can be a bit of a pain to get to work sometimes and we also do note professionally that sometimes vegetable based dyes won't work unfortunately for some clients if their hair is very resistant. If you'd like a one on one, we'd be more then happy to help you.

  • Mixed with henna, it colors the gray hair

    Posted by Susie on 28th Jul 2020

    I tried the henna by itself but it didn't cover my gray. I then bought this Indigo and mixed it with henna according to the very easy instructions. It worked! Most of my gray/white hair is covered, but not all. That is fine. I am a white girl with straight brunette hair. I will continue to buy this Indigo - it is the key to cover my gray.

  • Indigo for hair

    Posted by Diana on 27th Jul 2020

    This is the best indigo on the market, don't even bother shopping around. The richest tones, the best dye release and the best conditioning for your hair. You will have to use it a few times if you have very resistant hair or if your hair is white, but after you've built up your base, your hair will never be blacker. I find my hair is much blacker for much longer with a two step henna/indigo than it was with box dye.(I use whatever henna is available on Henna Sooq, they're all very high quality.) Even better, my hair is in the best condition of my life--holds moisture, curl pattern is crazy and there's much less frizz. The first time I used this indigo in a two step, it came out blotchy, black in spots and orange in other spots. I tied my hair up and went to bed, and when I woke up in the morning, my hair was seamlessly black all over. You HAVE TO give it time to oxidize to see the full results. For reference, I have 3C/4A, very low porosity, 75% gray hair.
