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.

  • 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.

    I've waisted money using this product. I mixed accordingly, waited the appropriate time. Follow all directions. This did not work for me. I have naturally black hair with touches of gray. However, since applying Black Indigo, Jamila Henna etc. My hair has turned orange/brown color.

    I've tried different brands and nothing will turn my hair back to black. So I guess I'll go back to using hair color because Henna's does not work for me. I wish I could get my money back. Lesson learned, don't believe the hype.

    HS Reply: Sometimes it will take more then 1 application with indigo to get it a richer black. A few factors play into the end color results. If you have a chance, please reach out to us and we'd be more then happy to help you with suggestions on how to get the indigo to work better. Because it's only plant based dye, it will take added applications especially for stubborn greys and hair, to get a good layering of color as it does deepen and develop more with an extra application or two.

  • 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!
