Depending on the ratio of Henna and Indigo, you can achieve any color from red shades to light brown, dark brown to black. If you are interested in a more intense black color, you will get the best dyeing in two steps, first with pure Henna and then with pure indigo.
Indigo itself dyes in dark blue shades.

 

Instructions for application:

 

A. One-phase dyeing for:

1. Red-brown shade - henna: indigo ratio - 2: 1
2. Brown shade - henna: indigo ratio - 1:1
3. Dark-brown shade - ratio of henna: indigo - 1: 3

 

In two cups, prepare the required amount of henna and indigo powder in the ratio as per the table above. 50g of powder should be enough for short hair, about 100g for long hair.
E.g. you have long hair and you want a dark brown shade, this is a ratio of henna and indigo 1:3, together it should be 100g of powder, so you will need 25g of henna and 75g of indigo.

First, we prepare the henna by pouring 60°C water, creating a paste with a yogurt-like consistency and letting it stand for several hours to release the pigments. Then we prepare a paste with indigo by pouring water no hotter than 50 °C and we can also add a pinch of salt, because the indigo pigment is released in an alkaline environment. Let it stand for 15 minutes. Mix with henna paste and apply.

A simpler option is to mix henna and indigo powder in the required ratio and water with a maximum of 50 °C. However, the result is not as good as when henna and indigo are mixed separately.

After application, wrap the hair in plastic (shower cap), then in a towel and leave on the hair for at least 1-2 hours. The intensity of the coloring and beneficial effects of Henna increases with the duration of the action. Afterwards, wash the hair and treat it with the usual procedure.

 

B. Two-phase dyeing for:

Intense black shade:

1st phase
Pour the henna powder with 60°C warm water and mix thoroughly. We can add the juice of half a lemon to the mass for a better release of the dye. Apply the created slurry to the hair, which is then covered with plastic wrap and a towel. Leave the preparation on for at least 60 minutes. The intensity of the coloring and beneficial effects of henna increases over time. Wash the hair thoroughly and treat it in the usual way.

2nd phase
Pour indigo with 50°C warm water (a higher temperature will degrade the dye) and mix properly. We can add a teaspoon of salt to the mass to better release the pigment and apply the resulting slurry to the hair. Then cover them with plastic wrap and a towel. Let it act for at least 60 minutes. The intensity of the coloring effects increases with the duration of the exposure. Afterwards, wash the hair and treat it with the usual procedure.

 

 

What color will indigo dye your hair during two-phase dyeing?

Natural colors do not appeal to everyone in the same way, but the legend below can help you orient yourself:

! Warning: Before using henna and other natural dyes, it is not recommended to use shampoos, hardeners and sprays with silicones, which prevent the penetration of natural pigments into the hair structure.
We recommend a minimum interval of 4 weeks between chemical dyeing and the application of henna and indigo.
