Indigo for Hair

(171 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.



Download Instructions:


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.

  • stunning color payoff, a bit drying

    Posted by elena Jimenez on 12th Mar 2022

    Hello! I recently purchased your henna mix the goddess mask and the indigo for hair. I mixed the henna with the goddess hair like you said in your videos and it was gorgeous, then I did a second step once the indigo was ready and applied it for 3.5 hours (I put 2 tablespoons of aloe Vera powder in the mix and only used warm to hot water) the color is so beautiful I almost got emotional. However, my scalp is very itchy and dry, I know I’m not allergic because I did a patch test. Could I use some oils or aloe Vera gel and rub it on my scalp 24 after the application? It’s pretty dry but I don’t want the color to leach

  • Never buy again!!!

    I think the only thing that this company is good at is ADVERTISING THEMSELVES! This is the worst hair product I have ever used. I have a healthy, soft, shiny black hair. I wanted to cover my grays, so I started with the 50/50 step and followed it with the indigo the next day. I am left now with a completely damaged, dusty hair. I have lost half of my hair in this process! I don’t know how to describe the result but it feels like my hair is totally burned out as if I applied bleach to it. Also, my grays of course turned into yellow and bright orange. This is a literal ripoff. I will never recommend this company’s products for anyone, especially those with Middle Eastern or European hair, it will burn it. It might work with African hair as relaxers just as they advertise it in their page, but definitely not for those with softer hair.

    HS Reply: We're sorry this didn't work out for you and we would have been more then happy to go through the steps with you just to ensure a better experience and results. Our products definitely work very well for all hair types and textures. Curly hair aka African is soft hair as well. Some coloring steps sometimes need to be repeated to really deposit on stubborn hair and greys. One application even as a two step sometimes is not enough. Did you add aloe vera powder to your recipe and use our Cleansing CoWash to restore moisture? Without the right amounts of moisture your hair can turn out this way and as for loosing hair strands, henna hair coloring can loosen up a lot of the hair that normally sheds anywhere from 50-100 hairs at one time rather then throughout the day. We hope this helps so even if you don't decide to stay with our brand, that you find a natural alternative with henna to color your hair with. Good luck!

  • Worked very well in a one-step henna process

    I'd stopped using henna on my natural hair since I had difficulty finding a high quality, solid product. I recently came across henna sooq on instagram. I ended up purchasing a kit that included red raj and indigo (I have lots of course grey and white hair framing my face). I mixed equal parts red raj and indigo, along with henna sooq organic aloe powder and organic alma, and my greys are covered in one application and my hair is soft. This henna was also easy to wash out with the henna sooq co-wash. Also, I did not get the brassy, bright orange color on my grey. Overall, I'm super, super happy with my first henna sooq experience and I'm looking forward to using other henna sooq products.

  • Indigo for Hair

    Posted by Celeste Cox on 21st Nov 2021

    I have tried other brands, Henna Sooq's Indigo for Hair is of superior quality and I have found it to work best on coloring my very resistant gray hair. I use this in the 2-step process with HS's Red Raj Henna/Indigo for Hair in the first step, followed with just Indigo for Hair in the second step to completely cover my gray and get a beautiful dark mahogany brown with reddish highlights. I am 100% satisfied with this product and a repeat customer!
